Banned antibiotics still being found in chickens

Two new scientific studies demonstrate that poultry on factory farms are routinely fed caffeine, active ingredients of Tylenol, Benadryl, Prozac, banned antibiotics and even arsenic.

“Big Ag doesn’t advertise the chemicals it stuffs into animals, so the scientists conducting these studies figured out a clever way to detect them. Bird feathers, like human fingernails, accumulate chemicals and drugs that an animal is exposed to.”

“It’s unbelievable what we found,” said Keeve E. Nachman, a co-author of both studies and a scientist at the Johns Hopkins University Center for a Livable Future.

“We haven’t found anything that is an immediate health concern,” we are told, but the effects of cumulative exposure are not always ‘immediate’ are they?
