I've fed beet pulp for years to my senior horses to help keep weight on them in the winter. If it were soooo toxic as this loon is claiming, I'd have thought my oldsters would have dropped over dead by now.
Unless it's in a scientific journal with actual studies and articles to back it up, it's nothing more than hoo doo and anecdotes as far as I'm concerned.
But but....I thought they couldn't put anything on the internet that isn't true.....
No, seriously....I wouldn't raise a youngster on bp alone, but as part of a balanced diet and putting weight on a needy oldster, sure I'd use it
