Processed MeatsAccording to an article on, Russia has issued a ban on US meat after discovering it contains ractopamine – a beta agonist drug that increases protein synthesis, to make the animal more muscular. This ban is reported in a very good article called "American Foods Chockfull of Ingredients Banned in Other Countries" which recently came out on

The article says that more than 3,000 food additives; preservatives, flavorings, colors and other ingredients are added to foods in the United States. Many have been deemed too harmful to use in other countries. This is shown by the Russian ban on US meat due to the feed additive ractopamine in the meats. Ractopamine is a growth stimulant banned in several countries, including Russia, according to the article.

From the article:

"Processed Foods Depend on Additives — When foods are processed, not only are valuable nutrients lost and fibers removed, but the textures and natural variation and flavors are also lost. After processing, what’s left behind is a bland, uninteresting "pseudo-food" that most people wouldn’t want to eat.
