Study feeding meat to horses
This sounds cruel, and it is. But I have to ask someone. A long time ago when I was first starting to question whether it was in fact healthy for humans to eat meat, I remember stumbling across a study done for a long duration, months, years? Anyway, it was a study where they fed meat to horses to see what would be the effect. It wasn't 100% of their diet, only a portion. Don't remember how much exactly % wise. So they were still getting oats and stuff to eat as well. But I remember some of the results. Facts that stuck out to me, one, the meat had to be cooked so that they could digest it. Two, they developed a craving for it. At first they didn't like it but after a week or two (maybe less?) they craved it over their normal food, the grains and grass. After the study was completed they killed them and autopsied them to find that they were in the early stages of heart disease, plaque was building up in their arteries.
I mention this because I wanted to find it again, but suspiciously I cant seem to find that study, or any other study for that matter where they fed a partial meat diet to herbivores long term. SURELY there are studies out there where people have done this! But it seems awfully strange that I can not find any. I'm suspecting cover-up by the industry? Has anybody ever heard of this?
