How horrible is it that this just makes me crave bacon?
Mike Elgan originally shared:
 
Vet drug so toxic it's banned in China is fed to a majority of pigs in US.

A deadly drug called ractopamine is banned all over the world, including in China. Yet it's fed to about 60 to 80 percent of pigs in the US.

The drug makes pigs leaner and grow faster, but can make the animals sick. In fact, ractopamine has sickened or killed more livestock than any other drug.

Farm animals in industrialized agriculture are generally so sick that California passed a law banning the slaughter of animals too sick to walk, but the Supreme Court struck it down this week.

Instead of banning ractopamine in the US, the Obama administration is instead using America's economic power to pressure other countries into accepting US meat containing traces of ractopamine into their food supplies as well, so far unsuccessfully. The issue has strained America's relationship with Taiwan.

Enjoy your bacon. ; )

I thought that was maybe you and your coworkers standing in the back righthand corner. It looks like a bunch of Crayons. Then I enlarged the picture to see that it is a castle.

I agree with Cuban. I don't think pros should be playing in the Olympics.

His reason is probably motivated by money, but he still has to pay his players if they get hurt and can't fulfill their obligations. For that reason I think he has every right to oppose it.

For me, the Olympics is about amateur athletes so that is why I don't like it.

As much as I hate going to the dentist, I love this office. I've been more times than I'd like to count. The staff has always been very compassionate. The doctors take the time to explain procedures and put me at ease. My only negative experience has been with scheduling errors which they corrected as best they could given the situation.
