Giving up red meat? Next time you’re in England( ( Or if you live there..) you may want to think twice before you order chicken. Recent tests by the British Food Standards Agency on imported chicken show they’re not exactly what you’d expect. Poultry companies in Holland and Belgium have been pumping water into their birds to inflate their weight and then advertising it as “more meat.” But how do you artificially inflate chickens? Inject the birds with extra protein, which allows the meat to retain more water. Chicken protein? No-- The tests revealed that pork and beef protein had been put into the chickens.
