Is horse meat a danger to health: are we panicking unnecessarily? Is the problem really about fraud?


The danger appears to be with possible contaminants such as the drug phenylbutazone, or "bute," which is used as an anti-inflammatory painkiller in the treatment of rheumatoid arthritis in some animals, but is not considered sufficiently safe for use on humans, as it can have a severe toxic reaction. Is a minute quantity ingested with your beefburger really sufficient to cause illness.........or are we really just angry about horse meat being misrepresented as beef, even though it is considered to be edible in many countries?
