"Eww, gross, not fucking eating that"
If that's your response to the weird white bits you sometimes find on raw chicken, then science has proven your response is the correct one.
That's because it's caused by a muscle disorder called "white striping", which is contaminating a lot of the chicken we eat.
The problem is the focus of a new campaign and video by Compassion in World Farming (CIWF), an animal welfare group.
Watch it here to find out more....
Here are just a few stats:
A spokesman for the National Chicken Council told Buzzfeed that white striping affects only a "small percentage of chicken meat," mainly "larger birds, not overall production," and "does not create any health or food safety concerns for people and the welfare of the chicken itself is not negatively impacted."

All these concerns about chicken aside, it might just be the most versatile food on the planet. It works in just about every dish you can imagine. Curries, burgers, roasts, nuggets, crisps, anything. I'd probably eat chicken if they made it a breakfast cereal and so would you.
Previously you might have thought that there's no better combination that chicken and a frying pan.
But in further chicken news, KFC just put something out on social media that might change your mind.
It might get you thinking: "aye, wait on, maybe chicken and pizza deserves the title of 'greatest food combination'?"
It seems that they're about to launch a 'Chizza'. It's a big ol' chicken breast fillet complete with cheese and toppings.
The news was shared on KFC's official Facebook page yesterday and we've been promised there's more to come when they officially announce the Chizza on their website.
