The food market is increasingly rich in products from organic farming and in dietetic and healthy foods. However, there are certain ingredients whose standards of hygiene and safety are not respected, such as industrial chicken whose consumption is not without risks.
Chicken is a popular food in many cultures, it is full of vitamins, essential amino acids and quality proteins. In France, the majority of the population favors farm chicken raised partly outdoors and fed 80% of cereals, it is the famous Red Label.
Industrial Chicken Vs Organic Chicken
Unfortunately, the environment in which industrial chickens operate does not always meet safety standards, which creates permanent health risks. Generally, buildings contain up to 30,000 chickens, resulting in significant bacterial proliferation and incessant microbial attack during hatching, feeding, transport, slaughter, plumage and evisceration.
Industrial chicken breeding is often blamed for numerous abuses such as reduced breeding time, injection of growth hormones, steroids and antibiotics, and feeding animals with Animal meal. All these chemicals are used to meet high demand at the expense of recommended hygiene standards.
The chick is high for 41 days instead of the regulated 81 days, which is dangerous not only for chickens but also for consumers.
A survey highlighted the fact that air quality and temperature control standards were not respected, leading to the deaths of millions of chickens. Many breeders wanting to do so therefore sell poultry by circumventing the rules of professional breeding regardless of the public health risk that this may entail.
As the consumption of industrial chickens has been blamed by many hygiene organizations, nutritionists have decided to examine the issue and assess its consequences. According to them, there are high health risks, including cardiovascular disorders.
These problems are mainly related to the chemicals and meat given to chickens to ensure rapid growth while knowing that they should not consume flesh. The excessive and unregulated use of antibiotics ingested by chickens is the cause of the proliferation of diseases such as E. Coli intestinal bacteria and staphylococci.
A team from the German subsidiary of the Friends of the Earth Association has carried out a laboratory analysis of 20 samples of industrial chickens obtained from five different large and medium-sized (GMS) It has been found that several antibiotic molecules containing the aforementioned pathogens have been identified.
The animal meals as well as the antibiotics and steroids mentioned in this article have harmful effects on human health in the long term. There are two consequences: on the one hand, the appearance of disorders and diseases which doctors have difficulty diagnosing and on the other hand the partial consumption of industrial chicken in order to avoid even more serious diseases. Indeed, legs and wings have been researched and are the parts that contain the most chemical agents. It is therefore strongly discouraged to consume them if you buy your chicken in supermarket.
The best way to avoid all these inconveniences is to consume only farmed chicken or organic chicken because it is essentially the farming method that will determine whether there is danger or not. A 100% organic chicken is high in open fields, unlike industrial chicken.
The fact that they spend most of their days outdoors allows organic chickens to enjoy greater freedom and to be in contact with nature while taking advantage of space and light. Their diet is healthy and balanced and consists mainly of cereals and legumes that contain neither GMO nor chemicals.
Moreover, the length of rearing of the organic chicken is in accordance with the rules, it is slaughtered at least starting from 81 days and not 41 as the industrialist.
A European directive has been put in place and requires that the welfare of farmed animals be guaranteed without pain and suffering, when is the same regulation for industrial chickens?
