Cancerous Chicken Feed

A new report finds that arsenic in chicken feed could be the cause of a group of cancer clusters in Arkansas.

“Cancer Clusters, Disease, and the Need to Protect People from Toxic Chemicals,” a new report featured at the Senate Committee on the Environment and Public Works this week, has identified arsenic found in industrialized chicken feed as the possible cause of cancer in an Arkansas community. According to the report, a town in northwest Arkansas where “arsenic-contaminated chicken manure was used as fertilizer and spread on fields beside schools and homes” had a cluster of testicular cancer that included three 14-year-old boys. The report calls for more study and stricter controls on toxic chemicals.
