Disease-resistant and sustained by low-cost feed, genetically modified poultry could one day be the answer to soaring global demand for meat

The eating habits of modern Americans have been described as, “eating breakfast in their cars, lunch at their desks and chicken from a bucket.”
There is a reason why the conventional poultry industry in the U.S. has been fairly successful in recent years at lowering detected levels of salmonella in chicken. But it has nothing to do with factory birds being raised in cleaner and more humane living environments. To the contrary, a new investigative report by The Washington Post (WP) reveals that many chicken slaughterhouses are merely treating their filthy chickens with an ever-expanding volume and variety of toxic chemicals to mask the presence of more virulent salmonella strains from federal regulators.
Another day, another Chinese food scare. KFC is dropping more than 1,000 farms from its network of suppliers in China to make sure the food it serves is safe after a scandal over tainted chicken hurt company sales in that key (meaning large) emerging market last year.
Chicken is the food most likely to kill you, while salad greens are the food most likely to make you sick, according to a new study conducted by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
USDA defends efforts to speed up poultry slaughter lines and replace most federal inspectors with plant workers
I bet that the first thing that comes to your mind when you think of chicken meat is chicken leg. Yes, the chicken leg, which comprises of two segments (drumstick and thigh), is the tastiest part of the chicken.
After years of sweeping the issue under the rug and hoping no one would notice, the FDA has now finally admitted that chicken meat sold in the USA contains arsenic, a cancer-causing toxic chemical that's fatal in high doses.
