interesting tidbits in the article about presence of ractopamine in 60 to 80 percent of pigs raised in U.s. it is meant to boost growth and lean muscle mass. "ractopamine can cause restlessness, anxiety, a fast heart rate, and other conditions." and "it increases the risk of injury and lameness in pigs." "Consumer Union...pressed for a ban of the drug, citing insufficient evidence that it's safe" give it a read, interesting.
