Well, here’s another “gem of wisdom” from the
freaking idiots “fine lads and lasses” at PETA.
According to PETA, ladies, you shouldn’t eat chicken while expecting. Because if you do – and the child is male – PETA says there may be “dire consequences” for the youngster.
Yeah, they’re full of it. While there is a trace chemical in poultry (phthalate) that some studies show has been associated with – um, let’s call it “shorter stature” – poultry isn’t a significant source of exposure. Plastic containers and personal hygiene products are hugely more important sources.
PETA is simply misrepresenting and sensationalizing the facts again for propaganda and fear-mongering purposes. It’s just more business-as-usual for those clowns.
So, as the cows in the Chick Fil’a ads say: feel free to “Eat mor chikin”. (smile)
