Why we be concerned about horsemeat....
Something people aren't talking about with the horse meat.
It's not just that people are finding out about eating horse meat all of a sudden, it is what is in horse meat.

On a hunch, I decided to look up diseases of the horse, and found out this:

[link to www.greenhorn-horse-facts.com]

"Anthrax - is a highly contagious, mostly fatal disease that affects all animals. Horses acquire this disease by grazing on infected pastures. This bacteria can lie dormant in the soil for up to 50 years.

The first signs of anthrax are high fever, colic and the appearance of hot swollen areas of the throat, neck and belly. A horse will develops a staggering gait, rapid breathing, coma, then death.

Because of the hazards of this disease to humans, great care must be taken when handling these animals. Because of the rapid progression of this disease, death often occurs before treatment can begin. "

So that being said, was horse meat added to the supply on purpose? What are your thoughts?

How much testing was done before they threw the horse meat in the meat batch?

there is so much that is swimming around in meat period. What is also an issue is how that stuff stays in your blood and also what composite stuff is used and called "meat" now.

Horses are less susceptible to anthrax than cattle and sheep, mostly likely due to their differences in the digestive system.
