Arsenic is a chemical element that occurs in minerals in combination with sulfur and metals. It usually comes in steel gray and is very fragile. It begins to tarnish when exposed to air and becomes poisonous while giving a strong garlic odor when heated.
Although it is clearly understood that can be very harmful if consumed in large quantities over a period of time, however, some manage to go beyond bad practices in order to make money.
The FDA (US Food and Drug Administration) has now concluded and agreed that the meat factory farmed chicken sold in the US It contains arsenic, which is not only poisonous, but can also cause cancer.

The FDA investigation on this matter shows that when arsenical drugs to chickens, trace element feed are excreted in their manure and quickly accumulates there for polluting the soil and groundwater year after year. Whereas, before this study, the poultry industry denied all the facts about arsenic and any traces found in meat.
