Is this really true about Chickens in the U.S?

I've heard the same about effects of GMO food.  It does give me pause about the whole thing.

When you add in the dyes, additives, preservatives, hormones, etc., much less the GMO; I wonder to what effect it has on health issues, diseases and the immune system? But anyway, unless you're a farmer or go way out of your way to get organic food, there's not much we can do about it... I've noticed an increase on the number of recalls on food products over the last few years. 

I don't fully understand why we have all these trade agreement to purchase food (both animal, vegetable and fruit) from other countries? We are more than capable of supplying everything we need with an abundance? Importing anything we ingest greatly increases the risk of everything.

I don't understand it either! It all comes down to politics and who or what group can profit the most from the having their hand in the global markets.  Agricultural markets have been strained for decades, with only temporary relief on occasion. I'll never claim to know much about supply and demand, but the U.S. should be able to incorporate their homeland supply into U.S. need better than it does. I'm sure there are other factors, too.

Hi all.

I hope you don't mind me asking, but curiosity has finally got the better of me. Lol.

In the U.S, do you really have chlorine washed chicken? 

And if you do, has it harmed you, or are you able to purchase non chlorine washed chicken?

I ask because it's currently a big scare tactic in the UK re; doing a trade deal with the U.S.

Curiosity has led me to ask you if this is all correct. I don't know much about it.

This is a very strange world. 

Let's praise the Lord that as believers we are all one in Jesus, no matter which country on the earth we happen to reside in. Our true citizenship is in Heaven. Praise God.

Becky.

I wash and dry all chicken in vinegar before cooking, not sure if it helps the safty of eating it but it helps me feel I cleaned it before I ate it

I have read numerous times that you are not supposed to wash chicken before you cook it. Most chance of contamination.
