Chicken consumption has been found to be useful in controlling blood pressure as well. This was observed in people with hypertensionand in many African Americans, though the diet was also comprised of nuts, low-fat dietary products, vegetables, and fruits.

My husband is in the medical field, so he’s around cancer patients a lot. I’m a big fan of prevention of cancer, so I’m going to say yes to chicken. Here’s what Organicfacts.net states:
