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.
