Unfortunately, the food fight also encompasses additives in chicken. The Organic Consumers Association reports that many growers put a certain amount of arsenic in chicken. The summary report is at:

The full report (in horrific detail) is at:

(On the IATP front page, see the bottom section which points to both the full report and various summaries.)

If you or your families have ever eaten chicken at fast food restaurants, be sure to read the full report.

Dave, thanks for the additional link. I looked at their "About Us" link, which didn't give much info about their goals, funding, etc., but they did list a parent organization,, which I reviewed. ConsumerFreedom is a coalition of mostly corporations and some "consumers", but no further info is readily available on who those consumers are.

I would just as soon not have giant agribusiness corporations deciding that it makes business sense to put a known poison into the feed of chickens, turkeys, etc.

Eric Schlosser, author of Fast Food Nation and the new book Chew On This: Everything You Don't Want to Know About Fast Food, has been relentlessly attacked by just such agribusiness organizations and corporations which make billions, that's right, billions of dollars each year from the U.S. sales of fast food. Fortunately, his research is solid and still stands.

Well, I appreciate organizations with a genuine consumer focus which educate us about the full list of what is really in fast food. For example, in his new book Chew on This, Eric Schlosser reveals a common source of red and pink food coloring in fast food (think pink lemonade, etc.) is from a certain variety of crushed bugs. It's certainly food for thought.

Your reply is amusing. You criticize my link as a front for agribusiness yet defend your agribusiness links as 'consumer focused'.

Both the organizations you cited are fronts for the multi-billion dollar organic agribusiness and receive additional financial support from pro-socialist anti-America organizations. Any 'consumer focus' is a thin cover story to hide their true agenda of maximizing profit by demonizing their competition.

Insect based dyes have been used for thousands of years around the world -- China, India, Africa, MesoAmerica, et al. They are the first 'organic' dyes.
