Texas experiment tries to poison feral hogs with sodium nitrite – the same ingredient found in bacon, hot dogs and beef jerky – but ends up poisoning hundreds of birds to death instead
06/05/2019 // Mike Adams // Views

The average American has no idea that a highly toxic, cancer causing poison is deliberately added to their processed meat products, including hot dogs, sausage, bacon, lunch meats, ham, jerky, pepperoni and even the meats found in canned soup. That toxic chemical is called sodium nitrite, and when combined with stomach acid, it forms nitrosamines - a chemical compound so effective at causing cancer that medical researchers inject lab rats with it when they want to cause cancer.

Like many southern states, Texas has a feral hog problem, and wildlife researchers have spent years trying to find an effective way to eliminate the feral hogs without killing other wildlife. Their latest experiment involves the use of sodium nitrite-laced hog bait that kills the hogs from the toxicity of sodium nitrite. Yes, this is exactly the same chemical that's added to processed meats at your local grocery store. It kills hogs more quickly than it kills humans, but it's also responsible for decades of the cancer epidemic in America.

The USDA was made aware of sodium nitrite's cancer problem back in the 1970s but was pressured by the meat industry to keep the ingredient legal in the meat supply. The FDA has done nothing to investigate or ban the toxic chemical, either, since it produces millions of new cancer patients every decade, generating a windfall of profits for the cancer industry that the FDA serves. (Yes, it's all about money, just as you've always suspected.)

Note about the feature photo for this story: Skeptics might say this photo doesn't depict wild hogs, because they might say wild hogs are black. I beg to differ. I've seen wild hogs that are beige, pink, brown, spotted, gray, black and all sorts of spotted or blotchy variations in between. They can be almost any color, and in large groups, you'll see a wide variety of colors in the same group. People who don't know that wild hogs can be spotted don't know anything about wild hogs.


Feral hog poisoning experiment accidentally kills hundreds of friendly birds

Last year, the science geniuses in an unnamed county in North Texas decided to field test a new hog bait product that's laced with sodium nitrite. The product is called "Hog-Gone," and it's made of some of the very same ingredients found in a typical grocery store hot dog that parents feed their children. When wild hogs consumed the bait, they died. But so did hundreds of birds, too, causing a wave of unintended bird deaths.

"Justin Foster, Texas Parks and Wildlife Research Coordinator for Region 2, said he has been conducting research on feral hogs for more than 10 years, and has never seen a bird kill of this magnitude.," reported the Times Record News last year. That same article also admits that sodium nitrite is being tested as a preferred alternative to the use of warfarin, a prescription drug taken by millions of Americans.

Any curious person should, at this point, be asking why these chemicals (warfarin and sodium nitrite) are FDA approved for use in medications and the human food supply if they're so toxic to feral hogs, who are also mammals. It's a reasonable question, especially given the widespread consumption of processed meats across America and the vast collection of scientific evidence linking processed meat consumption with increased risks of cancer.

It's not just for hogs: Are humans being baited with toxic food chemicals to reduce the human population?

As it turns out, sodium nitrite is toxic to both feral hogs and human beings, but it's more toxic to the hogs due to a genetic predisposition that doesn't allow the hogs to clear the toxic poison from their bodies as efficiently as humans do. But it's still poison either way, and we can't help but wonder if the globalists are reducing the human population through sodium nitrite-laced "food bait" that's labeled "Oscar Mayer" or other popular brands of processed meat.

Maybe the hogs aren't the only living beings that are being deliberately poisoned, culled and removed from society. In fact, almost all the food that's promoted with coupons is toxic food in one form or another. In this way, large corporations provide financial incentives for low-IQ populations to eat themselves to death. (Have you ever noticed how nearly everything promoted with coupons is toxic junk food that promotes degenerative disease?)

Note carefully that people who shop with a lot of coupons aren't very bright, since coupon-promoted products are the most toxic products available. Those products aren't even a good value, either, since they're mostly just junk processed foods and chemical-laden personal care products that promote cancer. (See CancerCauses.news for more coverage of the real causes of cancer.)

The average wild hog is smarter than the average human

The wild pigs, it turns out, might actually be smarter than the average human. Pigs adapt to baiting techniques and vary their feeding habits, eating many raw foods (roots, wild onions, etc.) which are rich in phytonutrients that prevent disease. Humans, on the other hand, eat whatever poison crap is dished out to them at the local grocery store. What health-oriented humans refer to as "superfoods" actually describes the daily, routine diet of wild hogs and other wild animals, who eat a diet that's almost 100% raw food.

Similarly, wild hogs work diligently to protect their young, but human "progressives" actually celebrate murdering their own young via abortions and infanticide, underscoring the fact that liberals are more stupid (and more suicidal) than wild pigs. In fact, no mammalian species is observed to murder its own offspring and then celebrate the act, yet that's exactly what "progressives" do in America today.

At my ranch in Texas, I will often encounter large groups of 50 or more wild pigs while I'm strolling along a nature path. These encounters are entirely peaceful, and I'll frequently see 3 - 5 large adult females with dozens of baby pigs ranging in size from very small (puppy sized) to medium sized. When they see me and my dogs, they flee with varying degrees of success, sometimes leaving behind young piglets that will occasionally try to hide in the grass and pretend they aren't there. (The baby pigs later find their way back to the "rally points" where their families meet up, usually in dense forested areas that are easily found by following hog trails.)

Even though I'm always armed when I walk, I don't shoot wild hogs. It's pointless and stupid. Although I'm highly proficient in the use of firearms, I train to shoot violent human criminals who are assaulting innocent people, not peaceful wild hogs who are minding their own business and mostly just trying to look for food.

Even from a firearms / hunting point of view, shooting wild hogs is no challenge at all, and it certainly doesn't qualify as a "sport." It's not exactly hunting, either, when I can just walk up on any group of pigs on any given day without even trying. One day on a casual walk, I encountered three large groups of wild hogs, probably numbering over 100 hogs in the aggregate. Never once has any wild hog tried to attack me, and I've never found them to be violent or aggressive. Not once. They're mostly really funny to watch, and they're easy to sneak up on since they usually have their snouts buried in the ground, rooting for wild onions. Anyone who tells you they had to deploy expert hunting skills to track down and shoot a wild hog is spinning a wildly exaggerated fairy tale. In truth, tracking down wild hogs takes no effort at all, since they're everywhere (in the wild, not in the cities, of course).

Basic evolutionary science: Why it's pointless to keep shooting wild hogs

The routine shooting of wild hogs is a pointless exercise, by the way. What Texas authorities and ranchers don't seem to understand is that by shooting wild hogs, you are in fact creating evolutionary pressure to increase the frequency of breeding cycles that ultimately produces more hogs. It is the hog hunters themselves who have caused natural selection pressures that have quickened the breeding cycles of hogs to the point where one female hog can give birth to 30 or more baby piglets each year. Before the hogs were being hunted by humans, they never achieved this rate of reproduction. Yes, predation alters the response patterns of the species, which also explains why deer can run so well just hours after being born.

This biological strategy on the part of the hogs is a cause-and-effect survival mechanism that emerges as a natural response to predation pressures. Any educated conservationist could explain this to anyone willing to listen, but I don't found many Texans interested in listening on this point. They would much rather just shoot the hogs and pretend they're making a dent in the population somehow. Shooting a hog at 100 yards takes no skill whatsoever, but it makes some people feel more manly for some reason, as if killing a living creature who posed no harm to you is a heroic act.

Yet even as local media outlets report, although about 30% of the hog population is hunted and killed each year in Texas, the overall population continues to increase by 20% per year. "Biologists and wildlife managers estimate that 70 percent of the hogs in the state will have to be killed annually just to maintain current population levels," reports The Truth About Guns.

In other words, unless you can kill 70% or more of the hogs each year, it's pointless to keep shooting them. They simply adapt and reproduce. After all, hogs are smart creatures. Smarter than most liberals, as I pointed out above.

Liberals are running their own self-depopulation agenda, by the way, through chemical castrations (LGBT agenda), gay couples (which are by definition incapable of sexual reproduction) and widespread abortion practices that kill off their own children. Somehow, liberalism has become a suicide cult, while feral hogs have become smart survivors. Long after the liberals have killed themselves off, the hogs will still be munching away on wild onions.

What's clear from all this is that the future of our world may not include many liberals, but it will certainly have plenty of hogs. And from what I've seen, the hogs are much more friendly to be around, and they don't try to take away my liberties and raise my taxes, by the way.
