View Full Version : The: Too much chicken = bad? Thread

Hi all,

I'm not sure on this topic, but I've just heard, secondhand, from quite a few people now that there is something bad about eating too much chicken.

Supposedly, because the chickens are raised in such cramped quarters they aren't able to remove the hormones injected in the "grace" period from the last shot to time of slaughter.

Is this true?

Haven't heard anything about it.

Added growth hormones in chicken? More bang for your buck. :D

"Are hormones used in the production of chicken?

No hormones are used in U.S. chicken production. The Food and Drug Administration strictly prohibits the use of hormones in broiler-fryers. Nor are additives allowed on fresh chicken. If the chicken is processed, however, additives such as salt or sodium erythorbate may be added, but must be listed on the product label. "

One more in regards to chicken:)


After reading through some various web pages it seems that the hormones used in the dairy industry should warrant more concern. You could always go with organic food if it is really a concern:D

Too much chicken is bad by definition :) Too much is just too much which is not good :D But I don't think eatting a lot of chicken is bad for you at all.

Too much of any "one" protein is not good in terms of building muscle.

I eat chicken everyday for lunch. In my meals I do a broiled chicken, steamed or wild rice, and veggies. I have not had problems with to much chicken. If there is a health problem with it I am really going to be messed up so far it has worked really well for me.:cool:

get organic chicken meat then, its exspensive. but does not have hormones in.

if you live in the right country they do not add hormones to the chicken

Speaking of too much chicken being bad, is too much cholesterol bad? I know dietary cholesterol isn't though (like Omega 3's and 6's).

Dietary cholesterol will have little impact on blood cholesterol levels.

I know dietary cholesterol isn't though (like Omega 3's and 6's).

Omega 3s and omega 6s are fatty acids, not cholesterol, but a good balance of omega 3 and 6s is beneficial for various reasons.
