Ractopamine Banned in China, Russia, Taipei, Taiwan, Malaysia,the European Union &150 other countries!  7 January 2013

Ractopamine Banned in China, Russia, Taipei, Taiwan, Malaysia,the European Union &150 other countries! LOOK at WHO is behind this!

What is Ractopamine?   It is a  drug that is used as a feed additive to promote leanness in animals raised for their meat. Pharmacologically, it is abeta-adrenoceptor agonist. It is the active ingredient in products known as Paylean for swine and Optaflexx for cattle, developed by Elanco Animal Health, a division of Eli Lilly and Company, for use in food animals for growth promotion.

In other words Ractopamine is a growth  hormone. Legal  in the USA and Canada? Wonder why? Interesting though, check this out. Please enjoy our work on healing and other matters in the world today. We encourage your comments as well as additions to this blog for humanity.

IN 1958, scientists at pharmaceutical company Eli Lilly discovered a compound that they thought could be developed as an asthmatic drug.
However, the drug was eventually deemed “lousy for humans” because the therapeutic dosage required was too high. (Ironically, this would later prove to be the factor that made it safer for humans when used in animal feed.) This compound, called ractopamine, sat in the company's library for 20 years, until Elanco Animal Health, the animal health division of Eli Lilly, took a fresh look at it for use in animals. Ractopamine, classified as a phenethanolamine, was approved by the US Food and Drug Administration in 1999, and approved for use in animal feed in Malaysia in June 2005.
“Ractopamine will re-partition or transfer the nutrients in the food that the pig consumes to the muscles of the body and less to the fat,” says Dr Chee Liung Wun, regulatory and technical manager of Elanco. Simply put, it brings about more efficient usage of the nutrients, as most of the nutrients will go to the muscles, creating more lean meat. “Ractopamine is a beta-agonist, but it is different from the other types of beta-agonists like salbutamol and clenbuterol. It has a different chemical structure, and it acts on a different receptor (beta-1), which is mostly only found in the muscles,” says Dr Chee.
“Ractopamine has been studied in pigs for more than 20 years to determine its safety,” assures Dr Wong Hon Siong, country manager of Elanco. “It has been in the US market for more than six years and more than 100 million pigs have been fed with ractopamine and marketed to consumers worldwide with no adverse effects.” ( Lihat ne, manusia telah dijadikan tidak ubah sebagai tikus ujikaji demi kepentingan keuntungan sesetengah pihak. Tiada sebarang consent diambil dari kita semua !!!)
Dr Chee and Dr Wong repeatedly make the point that not all beta-agonists are the same, despite belonging to the same group of compounds.

Ractopamine has been banned in over 160 countries worldwide, excluding the US, Canada and of course Australia. The chemical ractopamine is a beta agonist agent given to Pigs to increase protein synthesis. The public has not been made aware of this dangerous chemical and continue to eat it when dining on Australian pork. Ractopamine is responsible for Quote:
responsible for hyperactivity, muscle breakdown and 10 percent mortality in pigs. The problem with allowing this chemical to be given to pigs on such a large scale is that there has been no proper testing to show the short and long term effect to both new generations of pigs and even humans.
Although it is just one of the many thousand dangerous chemicals we encounter every day, it should be brought attention to none the less.
As much as twenty percent of Paylean, given to pigs for their last 28 days, Optaflexx, given to cattle their last 28 to 42 days and Tomax, given to turkeys their last 7 to 14 days, remains in consumer meat says author and well known veterinarian Michael W. Fox. Ractopamine is used in 45 percent of US pigs, according to Elanco Animal Health, which manufactures all three products.
Ractopamine is even banned in China (not famous for its food protection). Note that its handling instructions are: “Not for use in humans. Individuals with cardiovascular disease should exercise special caution to avoid exposure. Use protective clothing, impervious gloves, protective eye wear, and a NIOSH-approved dust mask”. Yet the FDA has classed it as safe to swallow!!! ( Korang fikirlah jahat tak jahatnya FDA ne ) In the latest round of inspections, two samples of Australian beef and two samples of New Zealand beef tested positive for ractopamine, said the Department of Health (DOH, 衛生署) yesterday. In addition, one sample of Australian beef tested positive for zilpaterol, a growth promoter more toxic than ractopamine ( Dasyatkan demi sesuap keuntungan duniawi ).  In a round of inspections that ended March 11, health authorities tested 219 imported meat products nationwide for growth-promoting drugs. Ractopamine was detected in 36 samples. Thirty-two of these imports are from the U.S., two from Australia, and two from New Zealand. Findings are pending confirmation, the DOH said yesterday. In another sample of Australian beef, the DOH detected zilpaterol at the concentration of 0.88 parts per billion (ppb). A hot pot restaurant in the northern Taiwanese city of Taoyuan has reportedly served Australian beef containing the leanness-enhancing feed additive ractopamine, which has been at the center of controversy in the country.

Russia bans US beef, pork imports over ractopamine
31 01 2013
Russia has announced it will ban imports of US beef and pork from February 11, threatening a trade worth about $500 million a year to US cattle and pig producers. Russia’s veterinary and quarantine authority Rosselkhoznadzor said it had imposed the ban after the US Food Safety and Inspection Service could not guarantee that future shipments of US beef and pork would be free of the feed additive ractopamine.

Ractopamine is used to promote leanness in meat-producing animals, and is known to increase the rate of weight gain, improve feed efficiency and increase carcase leanness. Countries such as Russia and China have banned its use on animal and food safety grounds, while US authorities argue that scientific evidence shows it is safe to use. The United Nations has agreed on acceptable levels of the drug. Earlier this month Russia warned countries that use ractopamine, including the US, Brazil, Mexico and Canada, that imports into Russia would be inadmissible if they contained ractopamine.

“The USA is the only one country that has taken no measures to ensure compliance with said requirement ( kenapa yek?? ),"Rosselkhoznadzor said in a statement foreshadowing the ban this week. The US shipped 39,000 tonnes of chilled and frozen beef to Russia in 2011, representing 6.5pc of total imports, and 59,680 metric tons of pork, or almost 9 percent of total imports, according to customs authorities quoted by the Bloomberg news service.

The Voice of Russia news outlet said the move was the latest in a series of trade disputes that had triggered concerns among analysts that US-Russia relations were falling into “a Cold War pattern of tit-for-tat”. “Since Vladimir Putin returned to the Kremlin as president last May, Russia has taken a series of anti-American steps. In recent months, his government has ended USAID programs in Russia and banned adoptions of Russian children by American parents,” the Voice of Russia reported.

“Russia on Wednesday banned imports of American meat and pulled out of an agreement with the US on law enforcement and drug control. “The measures were widely seen as retaliation for a new American law that bans alleged Russian human rights violators from receiving US visas or opening US bank accounts.” Canada has indicated it will be able to satisfy Russia’s ractopamine requirements from February 28, but will be subject to the same restrictions as the US until that date. Australian beef exports to Russia slowed throughout 2012, according to Meat & Livestock Australia, with total exports down 41pc on 2011 to 32,162 tonnes swt.

MLA said that after two strong years for Australian beef shipments into the Russian market, 2012 saw a combination of factors contribute to a slower year. “A significant depreciation in the Brazilian exchange rate, cheap product coming out of Paraguay, and resurgence in Australian manufacturing beef exports to the US manifested in reduced volumes to Russia.” Although overall export volumes declined, the market for Australian beef can be broken into two distinct markets, chilled product and frozen product. The vast majority of beef shipments to Russia are frozen (97pc in 2012); with Australian beef largely used for further processing. This beef competes with South American product directly, with importers very price sensitive, leaving Australian product exposed to any price decreases from South American suppliers. High quality chilled beef, mostly going into high end steakhouses, has largely avoided the competitiveness issues associated with frozen beef. Australian chilled beef exports to Russia throughout 2012 totalled 1,109 tonnes swt, a 9pc increase on 2011 and 11pc above the five year average of 998 tonnes swt. Australian chilled product competes for the most part with US product in the high end steakhouse market. Russian imports of chilled US beef in 2012, January to September, totalled 816 tonnes, while imports from Australia for the same time period stood at 768 tonnes (Global Trade Atlas). MLA also noted earlier this month that Russia’s recent succession to the World Trade Organisation (WTO) should ensure that market access (excluding technical issues) for beef and sheepmeat remains at least at stable levels over coming years. In 2013, the overall quota for frozen beef remains unchanged, at 530,000 tonnes. Australia has access to 407,000 tonnes of this frozen quota, shared with other WTO countries, while the US (60,000 tonnes), EU (60,000 tonnes) and Costa-Rica (3,000 tonnes) all have separate access to the frozen quota. The quota for chilled beef is set to increase in 2013, from 30,000 tonnes to 40,000 tonnes. The EU has access to 29,000 tonnes of this chilled quota, while access for other countries is set to increase from 1,000 tonnes to 11,000 tonnes. “This will provide increased access for Australian chilled beef into the Russian market. “Currently, chilled beef shipped to Russia outside of this quota and not classified as ‘High Quality Beef’, attract a 50% tariff. High quality beef, currently defined as any beef entering Russia at greater than €8/kg, attracts a 15% tariff, with most Australian chilled product entering under this arrangement.”
