Rumor says:

Chicken meat contains hormones and chicken wings and feet are the parts containing the most hormones and antibiotics.

Nowadays, the captive-reared chickens have high contents of hormones and antibiotics so children should eat them as little as possible. In addition, the hormones and antibiotics are normally injected to chicken wings and feet. Women eating too many chicken wings and feet are more likely to suffer from uterine cancer.
