KFC causes CANCER - Not so finger lickin' good

KFC -- Not so finger lickin' good

KFC settled a state lawsuit in California and will also have to pay $341,000 in penalties and funding for Proposition 65 enforcement, which is a voter-passed measure that requires businesses to post warnings about dangerous chemicals contained in food. Acrylamide is created when chemicals in food react to high heat.

I'm not surprised that french fries from a fast food restaurant are dangerous. What shocked me though is that the warning also states "It (acrylamide) is created in fried and baked potatoes made by all restaurants, by other companies, and even when you bake or fry potatoes at home".

PCRM Confirms It: KFC Chicken Causes Cancer

Jun 4, 2009, By Sally Andersen

We know that eating chicken is bad for the animals and the environment, but chicken is not one of those meats that are often connected with ill health … until now.

Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine (PCRM) tested 12 samples of the Kentucky Grilled Chicken from six different KFCs and found cancer-causing carcinogens in all 12 cases.

KFC isn’t alone in serving up cancerous fast-food: Last year PCRM filed suit against McDonald’s, Chick-fil-A, Chili’s, T.G.I. Friday’s, Outback Steakhouse, Burger King, and Applebee’s for knowingly serving the same carcinogens (PhIP) that were recently found at the colonel’s house.

The new chicken sandwich, which already brought controversy when Oprah gave it away for free, now has another strike against it. PCRM has sent the results of their study to Oprah.
