Fried chicken is one of the worlds most popular foods and is eaten by a growing number of people in China as the population gets richer.Some chicken and other meat products have been found to contain growth hormones and other substances during tests in various parts of the world. The nightmarish ordeal for the man was just beginning. Robert Van Deer believed he was simply suffering from a basic illness, such as the flu, and started taking more vitamins. He continued his frequent visits to his favorite fast food place and continued his love affair with chicken.
Van Deers condition continued to get worse. He began suffering from depression, fatigue, low energy levels, erectile dysfunction, and an increase in fat around his waist and thighs. The man also noticed he was developing female breasts and decided it was time to visit a physician. Doctors ran blood tests on Robert Van Deer, which showed he had extremely high level of hormones in system.
Through a very arduous level of testing, doctors were able to attribute Van Deers condition to his high level of consumption of fast food chicken. The antibiotics and hormones given to the bird, which was meant to promote rapid growth, caused a chemical reaction that resulted in a compound produced that mimicked the effects of taking estrogen. Van Deers constant consumption was, in fact, reassigning his gender.
Van Deer filed a lawsuit against the company, seeking $5 million in damages. Courts are unable to provide the name of the company because of the ongoing litigation. If Van Deers case is successful it will cause a massive shakeup to the fast food industry.
A recent report byNew York Daily Newsrevealed that the antibiotics given to chicken could be causing bladder infections in women. Eating chicken may be placing more than 8 million women at risk of developing drug-resistant bladder infections, the report revealed.
The long ranging effects of the antibiotics and hormones being given to animals which humans will eventually consume, has become a national debate.
