Certain varieties of chicken can also be linked to urinary tract infections or UTI. According to a study published in the American Society for Microbiology’s journal mBio, chicken with a particular strain of E.coli can cause a range of infections, including UTI.
“The team found E.coli in nearly 80% of the 2,452 meat samples and in 72% of the positive urine and blood cultures from patients who consumed the meat”, according to Science Daily. In order to prevent such infections, it is best to consume chicken that is “raised without antibiotics”.
