Cattle do get bute, you know. It's not just given to horses.

You want the truth? You can't HANDLE the truth!

Not if they are intended for human consumption.

Bute was banned for use in humans a long time ago and is also banned for use in all livestock intended for consumption
If this report is true the fact that its actually been traced in something as processed as corned beef means that its able to remain in the tissue longer and more efficiently than previously believed
On the positive side unless you eat an awful lot of anything that does have trace amounts of bute in it you aren't going to suffer in any way - and I mean A LOT!!!

Bute is not given to humans as it is highly carcinogenic.
Bute should never enter the human food chain in Europe (i am fully aware that it does but it should not).

The US may allow it but they also allow massive loads of antibiotics (banned in europe) and steroidal growth enchancers (again also banned in europe)

RIDE your horse FORWARDS and keep him STRAIGHT

Maybe there's a little horse meat mixed in. Gives it a little extra kick

This is what happens when you have democrats in office

different animals metabolise things differently. Some Things given to dogs would kill a horse and vice versa.

Bute is carcinogenic when humans metabolise it
