Unfortunately toxins aren't only found in processed or refined foods, they are in our meat too.
Simply put, a toxin is anything we consume that has a harmful effect on our body. While it's impossible to remove all toxins from our diet, with the right food choices we can minimise our exposure.

Factory farmed chicken tends to contain greater toxins than their wild brothers and sisters because they are fed an unnatural diet and live in a closed environment.
A modified diet and environment change a chicken's nutrient profile and cells.
For our chickens, one of the main things we check for is traces of arsenic.
Arsenic is found in chickens that are fed Roxarsone (3-nitro-4-hydroxyphenylarsonic acid) commonly referred to as Rox, which is an antibiotic drug food additive used to increase a chicken's weight and appetite.
Rox consumption leads chickens to have a higher than normal level of arsenic in their body which is stored in its meat and liver (1), which is then passed to humans through consumption.
Long term exposure to arsenic for humans can lead to arsenic poisoning and has been linked with higher rates of skin, bladder and heart cancer(2).
It's also not healthy for the chickens as they can become overweight and their cell profile changes from the introduction of antibiotics.
If you scroll to the bottom of this email you can view our lab certificate to ensure no arsenic or hormones are in our chicken.
We manage our very own co-op farm where chickens have the equivalent of 4 football fields to roam around, eating anything and everything from bugs, worms, termites, ants and organically grown turmeric. You could say they have a better diet than most humans :).

Below you can find our lab test results for our whole free-range chicken and for our free-range chicken breast. When we say our meat is free-range or pasture-fed - we mean it. All meat and fish we sell at our grocery is regular tested to ensure no chemicals or toxins go into any of our items.
