Behold the bond formula of Ractopamine, the chemical that is partially responsible for the plague of tasteless pork that has infected our food supply since the evil fleas behind "The Other White Meat" campaign first bit the hapless American swineherd.
According to this Wikipedia entry
Ractopamine in feed for animals is responsible for dramatic muscle growth, yet it is not a steroid or hormone, but rather a compound known as a beta agonist. Only a trace amount of ractopamine need be added for a marked increase in protein and decrease in fat accretion in animals, in particular swine. For the last 90 pounds of live weight gain, a mere 18.5 grams of ractopamine added to a ton of feed (20 ppm) will increase protein by 24% and decrease fat by 34%.To its credit, China does not allow the importation of pork that contains ractopamine, and is currently engaged in talks with Sino-pork importer wannbe Smithfield Foods to limit it's exposure to porkonic plague via assurances that the mega-pork merchant will not allow it's suppliers to use ractopamine.
For the record: The "epidemiological algorithm" of porkonic plague is
