My dad when he was still with us dabbled in weight-training/body building and used to get a magazine called Muscle& Fitness.
There was the usual arguments and such from the top blokes... one of the best being Arnie and his mate (can't remember his name right now) about as to what was best, high reps with loads of sets (Arnie's argument) or lower reps and lower sets (his mate's argument) ... this went on for weeks as memory recalls...lol.
Anyway my dad's favourite muscle builder was a fellow by the name of Steve Reeves, who went on to do some really bad movies.....lol.
Main thinmg being THIS as to do with the post..... my dad's favourite up-to -date body builder was a French guy who went by the name of "Serge Nubret" see here : http://www.google.co.uk/imgres?imgurl=http://www.muscle-munch.com/wp-content/gallery/serge-nubret/serge-young-old.jpg&imgrefurl=http://www.muscle-munch.com/tribute-to-the-black-panther-serge-nubret-rip.html&h=423&w=455&sz=34&tbnid=PUf0lEmdhhwHUM:&tbnh=79&tbnw=85&zoom=1&usg=__xOgCH5J_TB6FAmWfI_6U-peTEWs=&docid=Tqye3-m9eG1AoM&hl=en&sa=X&ei=t69DUfmFB8LQ0QWE5IBw&sqi=2&ved=0CJMBEP4dMBI
He had a quite symetrical build and not over-done in any one area.
Serge loved nothing better than to say that he loved horse steaks given that they were SO RICH in protein...... makes you wonder ?

Does it? I've eaten horse on the continent many times and it's really tasty (when cooked correctly). We seem to have some odd ideas in this country about eating meat - cow and sheep are okay, but horses is not or is weird. Why? In my opinion, unless you're a vege, you need to be asking yourself what makes eating beef and lamb okay, but you'd turn your nose up at other meat.
Firstly, this can't be just a recent discovery. It's too widespread for horse to enter the chain over the past few weeks. I'd say this has happened for years. Secondly, as the Prof says, we're happy to eat other meats and horse is no different. I used to know someone who worked at Ronald's processing plants... OMG
Anyway, I'm off to shampoo my mane.

I think that's a really valid point and one that I share. I ate horse as a child in France and it was pretty nice as I remember.
I must confess though, I am really outraged by this scandal but on the basis of the deception rather than the actual meat type. What really annoys me is the likes of Tesco et al now telling us they're sorry and they will endevour to source local British meat from now on blah blah blah - THEY SHOULD HAVE BEEN DOING THIS IN THE FIRST PLACE
That said, I actually don't think I've fallen foul of it as I don't buy/eat convenience meals or processed meat products
