Medic: Don’t eat horse meat
Friday, March 1 2013
CHIEF Medical Officer Dr Dr Akenath Misir has warned that the consumption of horse meat, from race horses may not be safe for human consumption. “The drug, phenylbutazone,” Dr Misir said, “is used in race horses and is known to cause cancers in human beings.”
Misir made the remarks yesterday at the opening of a two-day sub-regional workshop of agricultural and public health officials at the Hyatt Regency, Port-of-Spain, in response to a question by a member of the public on whether or not horse meat was safe for consumption.
