I'm not sure if people know it or not but humans are natural herbivores. I was not always cognizant of this fact. Our digestive system is like that of apes who live only by eating plants. When Jane Goodall lived among the apes she never observed them grilling hamburger patties on a Weber grill. Our intestines are very long (carnivores have short intestines so they can quickly get rid of all that rotting flesh they eat). We don’t have sharp claws to seize and hold down prey. And most of us (hopefully) lack the instinct that would drive us to chase and then kill animals and devour their raw carcasses. We are fruit and vegetable eaters by design. Our meat eating is a major cause of heart disease, diabetes and cancer. I now just stick to the basics.
