  1. Lets hope this continues on to the point where the plug is pulled on horse meat from Canada. No one knows how many people in Europe had been treated for serious illnesses that was caused by eating horse meat imported from Canada via the US. Unless a doctor actually suspected that was the cause none of them would even think about it. I would suggest that Canadians start telling their doctors about horse meat and suggest the MD’s start asking their patients if they eat it in light of the serious diseases eating horse meat can cause.
