美國馬里蘭州通過禁止使用 “砷” 餵養雞隻Maryland blazes the trail to get arsenic out of chicken feed

美國馬里蘭州通過禁止使用 “砷” 餵養雞隻,這可是對全球養雞業的一大衝擊,但卻是十分必要的第一步。美國官方希望其他州份亦會逐漸跟隨。

現代的工廠式養雞事業沒有了砷、荷爾蒙、抗生素、硝及磺胺類藥劑,雞根本活不成。人類就每天在吸收著這些化學物及毒物,身體不病才怪。 如你是有經濟能力的一群,你可選擇一些自由放養的及有機飼養的雞隻。暫時未能負擔的,可選擇多吃本地有機蔬菜取代多肉的飲食習慣。

If you saw “Arsenic in Our Chicken?,” Nick Kristof’s much-read New York Times column from earlier this month, you’ve heard about the widespread use of some unexpected additives in chicken farming.

Studies released this year detected caffeine, acetaminophen (the active ingredient in Tylenol), fluoxetine (the active ingredient in Prozac), various antibiotics, arsenic, and more in feather meal, a substance made from ground poultry feathers and used in animal feed. The findings were the results of studies by the Johns Hopkins Center for a Livable Future and Arizona State University.
