In one of the largest nutrition studies ever completed, meat consumption — and specifically chicken and poultry consumption — was significantly associated with weight gain in men and women. It did not show that eating chicken made you slimmer at all...
Once rare, breast cancer is now the #1 cause of death for Western Women age 40-55. In England the breast cancer rates have gone from 52 per 100,000 to 88 per 100,000 in just the last 25 years - directly matching the growth in obesity. This is no coincidence.
White meat being better than red meat is a myth. Grilled chicken has been shown to form higher concentrations of the dangerous PhIP and HCAs than other types of cooked red meat. These are some of the most dangerous chemicals in the entire food chain.

Those eating the highest amount of chicken had a 155% increased risk of estrogen receptor negative breast cancer. Chicken intake is NOT associated with a lower risk of breast cancer. Saturated fat - rich in chicken flesh - is directly linked to breast cancer risk.
The European Prospective Investigation into Cancer and Nutrition (EPIC), is a ground-breaking study from all over Europe. It has clarified many things, one being that if we continue to eat, drink and live the way we do, cancer rates will continue to grow exponentially.
Chicken, even with the skin removed, is still 23% saturated fat (then cooked in oil!). I thought eating chicken was all about “the protein and keeping slim”…? Marketing has done a great job fooling everyone – even nutritionists, dietitians and personal trainers.
In America, they are now eating more than one million chickens every hour and over 76 million people get food poisoning every year. Yes, you heard that correctly. Over a million chickens every hour. They are supposedly clean, healthy and fresh. Maybe not.
