      Would be interesting to know if anyone has done any real testing on meat in Canada. When horses, bison and cattle are slaughtered in the same facility one would be tempted to mix the meat bought for 25 cents a pound in with the stuff that costs a dollar or more!

        Absolutely, Jean. And even if they alleged to have conducted any testing, I’m certain their results would only be manufactured to suit their purposes and aren’t worth the paper they’re written on.

    Or people with no cerebrals at all!

  3. I do believe that most people are aware of the drugs in horses etc. Yet they choose to eat the meat. They cannot be to concerned about the ramifications. Guess there are more cerebral midgets than I thought!!
