This compound causes rapid pig growth, but a lot of pigs get sick and we wind up eating them... Yuk!

I really wish I could afford true organic foods.

I do know one way to get it, grow your own. Or hunt.

I'm gonna seem mean here, but I worry more about what its going to do to my health, not the pigs. Which this story seems to focus on. My daddy always said, don't play with your food.
