The world's biggest pigkiller, animal slayer and agony causer, human disease generator, environmental destroyer, major polluter of the Atlantic and other seas with pfiesteria, ecoli (colon bacteria), etc. is Smithfield, with operations in the US, Mexico, the UK, Romania, Poland etc.
Smithfield is being bought by a Chinese company, Shuanghui International Holdings Ltd. China already has at least 2 billionaires whose fortune is derived by the murder of pigs. Before this acquisition, Chinese businesses were slaughtering 450 million pigs a year.... genocide on an unprecedented level.
