    If you can't afford identifiable meat you're better off going vegetarian, that's for sure.
    But then I'd be a scrawny gimp rather than the hunk'o'man I am today!
    And your farts would be absolutely toxic.

    I'm a bit puzzled by the suspiciously swift and repeated messaged 'there's no danger to health' being touted about over this.

    You've got meat that no-one has yet identified the base source of. They have no idea if any of the animals involved were diseased and would only have been able to test a tiny fraction of the meat that's doubtless been kicking around unidentified for a while - I don't see how they can rule out a danger to health.
    Could it be that the factories also make cat and dog food, so there may have been mingling?

    Shergar's bum is an anagram of hamburgers.

    At least one of them said they didn't process horse meat at all, so not in their case. The suspicion seems to be extra meat bought in to be mixed with what they were processing, so it's mystery meat, yay!

    I'm amazed there's as much as 29% meat of any kind in these things.

    I bought a horse burger in France once. It was great. It came topped with a fried egg :)

    I don't see why we don't eat it here.

    Well I think cows and pigs and lambs and chickens and ducks are really cute. Doesn't stop me eating them.

    Horses are herbivores and taste nice. Generally the further you get up the food chain the worse things taste and the less nutrition from the meat, hence we don't eat predators such as cats or dogs.

    But I thought humans taste like chicken, and chicken tastes nice. So there goes your theory.
  • Deleted user 16 January 2013 12:41:45
    The real reason why we eat some animals more than others (other than taste which is a huge factor) is how easily and expensively these things are farmed.

    Horses are quite a high maintenance and expensive animal to rear and breed, and aren't really worth the effort for the meat, especially as they have far greater use as work animals and such.

    It's not a theory, it is a simple fact. Humans (along with pigs and to an extent dogs) are omnivorous, which is why the flavour and benefits of eating their flesh are better than something like a Cheetah.

    Edit: To clarigy I am not talking about the cultural reasons for eating certain things, but more the favaour / benefit order of why some things are eaten.

    Reports coming in that veggie-burgers have found traces of UniQuorn in them :D

    (Joke I saw on The Telegraph website.)

    Horse meat was a staple food in the UK during the Second World War, I heard somewhere.

    Also seem to remember that not everyone knew they were eating it, however.
