Is it true that chicken causes cancer, says Oxford University study?
There have been a lot of rumors about chicken, and one of the most worrying is that chicken causes cancer. What’s going on here?
The claim comes from an Oxford University study that collected data on the eating habits and illnesses of 475,000 middle-aged Britons between 2006 and 2014. The analysis found that increased daily poultry consumption was positively associated with the risk of breast, colorectal and prostate cancers, and that a daily consumption of 30 grams of poultry was associated with a 20 percent increase in risk.

Rumors about chicken don’t stop there. Some people say that the head is inedible, while others say that the innards and necks are inedible. Is there any scientific basis for these claims?
“Ten years of chicken head is better than arsenic”, I believe we have heard the saying, so many people in the daily eating chicken will throw away the head.
In fact, there is no scientific basis for this statement. Some of the food ingested by chickens will enter the blood after digestion through the gastrointestinal tract, and some harmful substances contained in it will be metabolized through the liver and kidney, so it cannot reach the head at all. Naturally, there is no such thing as a toxic chicken head.
The myth that chicken offal is inedible also says that it contains a lot of harmful substances, but this is not accurate.
Proper intake of chicken offal will not pose too great a threat to health, because offal contains a variety of vitamins and trace elements, which are good for health, as long as not excessive intake generally will not pose a threat to health. The saying that chicken neck should not be eaten mainly means that there is a lot of lymph in chicken neck, which is the gathering place of virus, and people will be threatened to health after eating it.
