Is it acceptable to have horse meat derivitives in our food chain?
Horse meat or no horse meat?
Hmm... While I cannot say that I would specifically "choose" to eat horse meat, and while specifically eating horse "meat" is not a particularly popular American food choice, I don't see how it's any different than eating Chicken, Pork, Squid or Crab.
So long as the horses are well cared for during their lives, and not forced to live in confined spaces or mistreated in any other way, than it's just another form of protein.
IMHO, all animals are sentient, and we have to come to terms with that when we eat any meat, or even plant matter, as I believe plants also have their own form of 'sentience'. So under that presumption, life is life and meat is meat. If you're going to eat it, why not horse? =P
Good comment you made here BizGenGirl.. but the trade in unwanted horses is a 'big time' industry.Recent revelations in UK have been worrying.Supermarkets like Tesco's etc have been selling hamburgers with horsemeat in for years,without public knowin
As it stands now, no. There is no regulation to what the horses can ingest or be pumped full of, so without that, no horse meat should hit the grill. Buterol, Steroids, and a huge wealth of other drugs are carcinogens, or just plain unhealthy to humans. You CAN eat it, but you can also eat radioactive waste. Mmmm, bon appetite.
no, horse is a beautiful creature. We don't eat horse meat here. Eating rabbit meat and deer meat are consider inhumane for most of the people i know. We ride them, how can we eat them? Aren't we becoming monster???
