Polish minister states that eating beaver is an aphrodisiac because he calls for hunting the animal
Eating beaver is an aphrodisiac, the Polish minister claims, since he declared the animals edible and hunted.
- Agriculture minister Krzysztof Ardanowski made the statement in parliament
- Mr. Ardanowski said that beaver hunting quotas were by no means exhausted
- Some cultures believe that the tail is an aphrodisiac, but it is not medically proven
- But they are protected by the 1979 Bern Convention on the Conservation of European Wildlife and Natural Habitats
Beavers should be hunted and eaten if their tails are an aphrodisiac, the Polish minister of agriculture said.
Krzysztof Ardanowski said in parliament: & # 39; If people remember that the beaver's tail apparently has aphrodisiac properties, this problem might be solved. & # 39;
The minister said that beaver hunting quotas, protected under the 1979 Bern Convention on the conservation of European nature and natural habitats, are by no means exhausted.

But there is no medical evidence suggesting that beavers (tail photo) tails act as an aphrodisiac or some other claim that it is a cure for epilepsy
Yet Mr. Ardanowski said: & # 39; & # 39; If people remember that the beaver's tail apparently has aphrodisiac properties, this problem might be solved & # 39;
Mr. Ardanowski added that & # 39; currently nobody knows what to do & # 39; with a beaver carcass, according to footage broadcast today by the TVN24 network.
& # 39; At the moment it is not clear what to do with a beaver, even though it has already been hunted.
& # 39; If people remembered that the tail of beavers allegedly has characteristics of an aphrodisiac, it may appear that the beaver problem will disappear. & # 39;
He said he has taken steps to include beavers and European bison on the list of animals that can be hunted and considered an edible species.
Mr. Ardanowski called for an alliance between farmers' groups and others such as the Polish Hunting Union.
And he added that ritual slaughtering for the Islamic meat market will be done, saying that those who don't like it should simply live with it.
The beaver is a very active rodent, known for building in aquatic environments or wetlands, and making dams and attacking trees. This makes it unpopular with some people.
But there is no medical evidence that beaver's tail works as an aphrodisiac or any other claim that it is a cure for epilepsy.
It is believed that in some cultures the castoreum it produces, a resinous exudate from castor bean castor bags, can help with some treatments because it contains salicylic acid – used for skin conditions such as acne and dandruff.

The Minister of Agriculture (left, meeting with the Romanian Minister of Agriculture Petre Daea on 4 June) said he has taken steps to include beavers and European bison on the list of animals that can be hunted and considered an edible species.
And in the Middle Ages doctors used it for problems such as headache, cramps, hysteria, nervousness and impotence.
The Bern Convention on the Conservation of European Wild Animals and Natural Habitats aims to pay particular attention to endangered and vulnerable species, including endangered and vulnerable migratory bird species.
It also resembles the conservation of wild fauna and flora and their natural habitats and promotes cooperation between EU countries.
States that have acceded to the Convention – including the United Kingdom, the Netherlands and Belgium – must promote national conservation policies, promote anti-pollution measures, promote educational and informational measures, coordinate efforts to protect migratory species and take legal and administrative measures.
