Excessive eating chicken meat negatively affects health
Experts at the Mayo Clinic medical and research group in the United States recommend that the percentage of protein that each person consumes in a day should be between 10% to 30% of the amount of calories he gets.
In addition to the nutritional value that white chicken meat contains, especially the beneficial protein for the body, it becomes harmful if it exceeds a certain limit.
Consuming large quantities of it, the body stores it in the form of fat, and this leads to weight gain and high blood lipids.
One of the disadvantages of having more chicken is that it increases the risk of heart disease, due to the cholesterol and saturated fats it contains.
And data from the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention indicates that heart disease is among the leading causes of death in the United States.
Experts warn that "those who eat more chicken find it difficult to control their weight, unlike vegetarians, who have a better metabolism and have the ability to convert what they eat into energy more quickly."
On the other hand, experts warn that a large number of chickens may make our bodies less responsive to drugs when we get sick, due to the increased doses of antibiotics provided by the breeders to the chickens to grow better.
Experts recommend cooking chicken meat at a temperature of at least 73 degrees Celsius, to avoid infection with some of the parasites it may carry.
