Chicken Wings and Steroids


Would you just look at these delicious barbequed chicken wings!! These days, I have drastically cut down on them. And all because of this email which I have repeatedly received from well-meaning friends. I'm sure you have received it too.

Chicken Wings - It's Dangerous

Avoid eating chicken wings frequently - ladies, especially; a true story...!

A friend of mine recently had a growth in her womb and she underwent an operation to remove it. The cyst removed was filled with a dark colored blood. She thought that she would be recovered after the surgery but she was terribly wrong.

A relapse occurred just a few months later. Distressed, she rushed down to her gynecologist for a consultation.

During her consultation, her doctor asked her a question that puzzled her.

He ask if she was a frequent consumer of chicken wings and she replied yes wondering as to how, he knew of her eating habits.

You see, the truth is in this modern day and age; chickens are injected with steroids to accelerate their growth so that the needs of this society can be met. This need is none other than the need for food.

Chickens that are injected with steroids are usually given the shot at the neck or the wings.

Therefore, it is in these places that the highest concentration of steroids exists. These steroids have terrifying effects on the body as it accelerates growth. It has an even more dangerous effect in the presence of female hormones, this leads to women being more prone to the growth of a cyst in the womb. Therefore, I advise the people out there to watch their diets and to lower their frequency of consuming chicken wings!


And I've been asked to forward the email to friends and loved ones, that's why it's posted here.

Is there any truth in this, do you think? Shed some light, anyone?

  1. Yeah I heard about the injecting of chicken wings story. Food has become so genetically altered these days.

  2. They do, don't they? The wings, I mean.

    Yeah, with increased population, demand is overtaking supply, thus food production has to be accelerated. Next, we'd be growing chicken in our backyard. Kidding.

    The story is false -- eat all the wings you want! (Well, actually they aren't the healthiest food BUT...) Growth hormones have actually been banned in chickens in the US for quite a while.
