If you “think” like food activist Michele Simon, you’ll love her Huffington Post piece, Advocates beat Big Chicken in Maryland to Ban Arsenic in Feed.
Aside from the scaremonger details, it’s all about how “the good guys won” and the powerful chicken (and pharmaceutical) companies are out to harm us.
Many groups have tried to stop the practice for years but of course Big Chicken has fought back hard. Kudos to Food and Water Watch, which explains how the good guys won this time: “Given the enormous power of our opponents, like the big chicken industry and pharmaceutical companies who fought against us for three years, this victory is a real testament to the power of grassroots organizing.” We can beat back food industry lobbying one state (or city or county) at a time. It just take a lot of hard work.
