GMO Meat import from U.S. refused by Russia, synthetic vitamins wreak havoc on human health



The growing concern about the meat industry in the U.S. is being fueled more with Russia refusing to import any more meat product from America. Natural News reports that the main reason behind this Russian refusal is the prevalence of ractopamine in U.S. meat products. The U.S. exports over $500 million of pork and beef to Russia every year. With this sudden decision from Russia, the meat industry in America has been totally taken aback, though the trade authorities in the U.S. are claiming that ractopamine is absolutely safe and are accusing Russia of politicizing the whole affair.


Ractopamine is generally fed to animals in order to induce growth in them so that they can reach productive age fast. As a matter of fact, most of the pigs in the U.S. are fed ractopamine though this particular drug is banned in China, India and all of the European Union nations. It is well known for its ill effects on pigs that sometimes even die due to excessive consumption of ractopamine. It is reported that the consumption of ractopamine may lead to cardiovascular problems, endocrine disorders, musculoskeletal problems and even behavioral changes.

There is a concern regarding the vitamin tablets as well. It is now being reported by Natural News that synthetic vitamins that are widely used nowadays in order to reduce the vitamin deficiency in the body capable of breeding diseases in the human body. It has been seen that most of these vitamin tablets contain chemicals like sodium benzoate, carnauba wax, methylcellulose titanium dioxide and silicon. All these chemicals can result in diseases like cancer, arthritis, Alzheimer’s disease and osteoporosis. Some multivitamins are also reported to contain Aspartame which is one of the main origins of Irritable Bowel Syndrome and Fibromyalgia.
