Activist Group Warns Of White Lines On Chicken Breasts [VIDEO]
If you think eating chicken breasts is healthy for you, one activist groups says you may need to think again.
A group called Compassion in World Farming is warning people that muscular disorders in poultry can be causing chicken breasts to contain high levels of fat---And less protein.
The sign, a white line on the chicken breast. The groups says that line is an indication that the chicken(s) were given a steroid to enhance rapid growth. With that comes more fatty substances in the piece of meat, which many think is high in protein.
A 2013 study found that chicken breasts with white stripes may contain 224% more fat than normal.
Take it for what it's worth, but this certainly raises a red flag for me. Is anything truly "healthy" these days?
