According to iVillage Health, horse meat may be healthier than beef. "This past January, a food scandal unfurled when, during a routine check of a few hamburger patties in Ireland, one burger was found to contain nearly 30 percent horse meat. Since then, horse meat has been found impersonating (or, one might say, im-cow-ating) beef in several European countries including Britain, France, Germany and Sweden. Some of the retailers found to be serving up Seabiscuit include Burger King, IKEA and Taco Bell.

Though U.S. officials say contamination of our meat supply is unlikely, it prompted us to wonder (fraudulent activity aside): Seriously, what’s wrong with eating horse meat" MORE

No, I wouldn't.  I usually stick to fish and sometimes chicken or turkey but basically stick to veggies and non-meat food.
