Dr. Larrey and Horse Meat

"Before lemons and limes were widely available, one of the most famous cures for scurvy was fresh horse meat. This cure was recommended by Dominique-Jean Larrey, a surgeon with Napoleonís army. When scurvy was running rampant in the army in Egypt, Larrey ordered an infusion of fresh horse meat."
