They don’t listen to people, and they just keep cranking out the same nasty food-like products.

Mr. Pacelle purposefully misleads readers multiple times. One Example is taking The Texas Tech/K State paper’s statement about an 80% increase risk of death (not actual incidence)out of context. In reality the cattle exposed to ractopamine had a risk of death of ~ 0.48% and unexposed cattle had a risk of death of ~0.26% depending on the study cited. Which by the papers own admission is “is a relatively rare event in feedlot cattle”. Also this is an associative analysis which by definition cannot determine cause. Shame on Reuters for allowing such fear mongering. Lets have an honest discussion. Where is the other side of the story to this most extreme opinion?

Really? Ever heard of people like Pasteur, Crick, Newton, Galileo, Hawking? All Europeans. What a condescending, stereotypical, “ugly American” kind of comment.

Or a better solution we can revert back to 1800s all natural framing practices and let have the world starve.

Yeah, you apparently did not read the article. This is not medicine. It’s a feed additive for rapid weight gain (beta-adrenergic agonist). Has nothing to do with preventing or curing sickness in animals.

Stupid question. There are already two well-known answers in the books that every patriotic American Exceptionalist should know by now.

1. Our “exceptional” political lobbying system is there to ensure that corporate interests are well represented within the government. These drugs give our poor government subsdized farmers a chance to compete and to maintain our globla lead in obesity. I mean, anyone who would suggest sacrificing profitability and production quota just to satisfy over regulation by the FDA is clearly an liberal.

2. Europe, China and Russia are just pretenders in the game of scientific knowledge. Simply put, they don’t really know anything and certainly not more than us. This is ‘Murica and our superiority in the field of health is particularly unquestioned. Sure they might claim that some recent scientific study is on their side but the Almighty is on our side. That’s what counts in the end.

Stop questioning the ways of America or I will be forced to label you as an unpatriotic Muslim communist.

Bad food. It keeps the economy vital. Get sick today.

Cheaper meat equals meat tainted with growth hormones. If there were full disclosure on all meat packages I wonder how much of this meat would sell.
