Type Of Chicken Is Dangerous To Your Health

When it comes to our health, we must take all precautions to preserve it and avoid exposing it to unnecessary risks. Therefore, it is important to choose healthy and natural foods, far from any genetic modification or chemical contamination. In this article, we will update on a food that we consume regularly: chicken.
Chicken meat is very present in our diet. Rich in protein, phosphorus, zinc, magnesium, and vitamins (B3, B6, B12), it provides our body with the nutrients it needs to function. In addition, consumed skinless chicken with a low caloric intake, which makes it ideal for slimming diets.
But there is a very important point to take into consideration and which has a significant effect on its nutritional value and its impact on health: the rearing method.
Organic chicken vs industrial chicken
Organic chicken has many advantages compared to industrial chicken. Indeed, the organic has a greater freedom of movement and feed on natural elements such as cereals and legumes, which increases the quality of its meat and reduces the fat content. Moreover, respect for the natural cycle of growth and its immune mechanisms that allows it to have a better nutrient intake. According to a report of the organisation -WFC- (Compassion in World Farming) dedicated to the welfare of farm animals, organic livestock products generally contain a higher amount of omega-3 fatty acids, antioxidants, iron and vitamins.
The industrial poultry, their evolution in a confined space deprived of them of freedom to movement and exposed to an increased risk of diseases and infections, which explains the constant use of antibiotics. Moreover, for the sake of productivity, industrial chicken is supplemented with hormones to accelerate its growth and is nurtured by fats, animal meal and even genetically modified corn. Moreover, to improve the quality and taste of its flesh, poultry breeders give their chicken excessive amount of chemical additives and salt.
What are the dangers of industrial chicken consumption ?
The disadvantages of the industrial chicken is not only about their method of breeding, but also its impact on human health.
According to many scientific research, meat from intensive factory farming has a lower amount of omega-3 and omega-3 / omega-6 ratio imbalance, which favors the development of cardiovascular diseases.
As mentioned a little earlier, crowding a large number of chickens in a confined space promotes the spread of pathogenic bacteria which are subsequently transmitted to the homme.According to the European Food Safety, 75% of European industrial chicken is contaminated with campylobacter bacteria primarily responsible for diarrhea and food poisoning.
In some cases, and as a preventive measure, industrial farmers administer antibiotics to their chickens to limit or to prevent the spread of disease or infection, without taking into account if the animal is infected or not. This misuse of these drugs can lead to the development of bacteria and resistant pathogens, which represents a real danger to public health.
So to protect your health and avoid exposing yourself to different bacterial infections such as salmonella that may be fatal for young children and elderly people, be careful while buying chicken. Prefer organic, and make sure that the "natural" is mentioned on the label which indicates that it conforms with the standards of organic farming.
