I am highly disturbed by what people are being fed now days...
I don’t even eat meat, but what the heck…I am feeling for people who get ripped off. Meat industries only care about their profits.

Wildlife and Habitat Conservation News: America has a Horsemeat Problem too

Your take?

People don't "get fed" they choose what eat. They just need to make better choices. Choose organic, choose local, choose meatless.

If you're eating meat, why is eating a cow fine, but a horse is gross? A pig is good, but a dog is bad? That has to do more with feelings than anything.

Nothing wrong with horse meat. It's actually very tasty. The only problem with it was that it has to be included on ingredient list. That's all.

Gives a whole new meaning to "horse d'oeuvres."

Why? Scientists tell us humans have been eating meat of all kinds for millions of years, and insects too. It may be out of your personal comfort zone, but there is nothing at all unprecedented or even particularly strange about it if you just look around at human culture.

That is correct. But heaven help our society if we ever lose those "feelings".
