Horses have BEEN food animals all along, so how exactly will this change things?

So a full 2 % do pose a threat? Scary stuff.

And to answer the original question of this thread:

How can you, as a veterinarian, support euthanasia? Do you actually enjoy killing animals? I thought you were supposed to help them and heal them!

Say, I've got an idea....

From what I've read, even soy products contain some sort of estrogen which can negatively impact the system.

Also um...if you don't want to eat horse...don't?
Honestly I don't see a massive market for horse burgers in the US anyway...

Of course this is just an estimate. I myself haven't done much research on the statistics. However, the 2% or so encompass drugs that are probably not those that are going to be given to a horse in the first place. Something so powerful that it would negatively impact the secondary consumer is NOT something I would give directly to my horse.

Of course, if we all hate our horses, I suppose we'd give them these drugs.

They released a research in Europe (really lengthy, like 10 years or so) that all that "organic" food (and that it's better for the health) seems to be on same page as "global warming". I may try to find a reference (as it's been some time after I read that), but I definitely can see the point.

Since when? Find me the law. When was it illegal to slaughter or eat horses in the US?

It has never been illegal to consume horse slaughter in the states.

Just a reminder to everyone: please, stay civil and avoid the personal attacks and direct insults!
