Yuck! Even more incentive for me to find a local pastured chicken farmer!

Don't get news from NaturalNews, it's just awful in terms of accuracy and bias.

Roxarsone is an organic arsenic compound, which is much less toxic than inorganic arsenic species (which is what causes cancer I might add). It's simply an antibiotic added to feed, antibiotics are essential in high density operations (high-density operations are not essential though!)

Buy organic and you've got nothing to worry about.
