Every wonder why your baby's penis is so small? Or, if you're pregnant, if it might turn out small?
PETA just put out a video on Facebook called "Eating Chicken Can Make Your Kid's Dick Small," citing a 2008 scientific study by the National Institute of Health that linked a chemical found in chicken flesh with "low-end" penis sizes in babies.
This is great news if you were fighting with your partner over who in your family gifted your offspring with tiny dick genes (sorry for the mental image), but it's also bad news in that it poses a real moral dilemma: on the one hand, you want your son to have the biggest, most terrifying penis on the playground. On the other hand, chicken is delicious.
Or, you know, PETA could just be making claims based on scant evidence to promote their agenda. The report only mentions that the compound Phthalate was linked to smaller baby penises; they never even mention chicken once. Per the report:
Phthalates have been measured in residential indoor environments in both house dust and indoor air. They have also been measured in foods, milk and drinking water. However, the relative contribution from the various sources and routes of exposure to phthalates is unknown.
Strange, PETA never mentioned the danger of terrifying drinking water or air.
Tl;Dr: eat the chicken, let your baby worry about his dick.
