MD Bans Poultry Arsenic

A new bill in Maryland seeks to ban the carcinogenic chemical arsenic from poultry feed.

Maryland Delegate Tom Hucker and Senator Paul Pinsky, alongside Maryland Attorney General Doug Gansler, have introduced a measure to ban arsenic from poultry feed. Arsenic, a known carcinogen, is often found in poultry feed because it combats intestinal diseases and promotes growth in chickens. Linked to mental deterioration and heart problems in humans, the chemical is found in the waste and runoff from poultry farms. Maryland is the seventh largest poultry-producing state in the US and has suffered from poultry-farm pollutants contaminating the Chesapeake Bay. Hucker says, “This is an issue that makes sense to 10 out of 10 people.”
