A correction to what I earlier posted ... it is the carnivore that has the shorter intestinal tract.
Meat is in a state of degeneration as soon as the host is 'killed', whether it is later cooked or not. Why put something in your physicality that is putrefying ?
Is your physicality designed to eat meat ?
Meat-eaters: have claws
Herbivores: no claws
Humans: no claws
Meat-eaters: have no skin pores and perspire through the tongue
Herbivores: perspire through skin pores
Humans: perspire through skin pores
Meat-eaters: have sharp front teeth for tearing, with no flat molar teeth for grinding
Herbivores: no sharp front teeth, but flat rear molars for grinding
Humans: no sharp front teeth, but flat rear molars for grinding
Meat-eaters: have intestinal tract that is only 3 times their body length so that rapidly decaying meat can pass through quickly
Herbivores: have intestinal tract 10-12 times their body length.
Humans: have intestinal tract 10-12 times their body length.
Meat-eaters: have strong hydrochloric acid in stomach to digest meat
Herbivores: have stomach acid that is 20 times weaker than that of a meat-eater
Humans: have stomach acid that is 20 times weaker than that of a meat-eater
Meat-eaters: salivary glands in mouth not needed to pre-digest grains and fruits.
Herbivores: well-developed salivary glands which are necessary to pre-digest grains and fruits
Humans: well-developed salivary glands, which are necessary to pre-digest, grains and fruits
Meat-eaters: have acid saliva with no enzyme ptyalin to pre-digest grains
Herbivores: have alkaline saliva with ptyalin to pre-digest grains
Humans: have alkaline saliva with ptyalin to pre-digest grains

Personally, I think that there is a lot of cherry picking full stop. This doesn't detract from the points that are made though.
Have you heard of the Aquatic Ape theory ?
So who says that we evolved from hunter gatherers ?
Would that be scientists ?
And some would state that no one should advocate raw animal foods at all.
Why should anyone's diet consist of meat at all, whether raw or cooked ?
Others advocate not cooking food above a certain temperature. Some promote fermented foods. Some are fruitarians. Some eat seasonally. Some eat from 'signs in nature' specifically to nourish parts of the physicality that the foods correspond with.
Actually, it isn't my article. It's by by Joel Fuhrman MD, as noted at the beginning of the article.
It IS evidence, whether you like to think so or not.
The Weston A. Price Foundation (WAPF), co-founded in 1999 by Sally Fallon (Morell) and nutritionist Mary G. Enig (PhD), is a U.S. 501(c)(3) non-profit organization dedicated to "restoring nutrient-dense foods to the American diet through education, research and activism."
The Weston A Price Foundation is a non-profit organisation ... in other words, it has ties to the Rockefeller Foundation. The Rockefeller's are also the ones that set up the modern medical system and the institutions that teach and train medical practitioners.
Weston A Price didn't even set up the Foundation, food activists Sally Fallon and Mary G. Enig did.
It's a-okay, nothing you could do could insult me, only I can do that to me.
Simply because the predominant (mainstream) medicine is "pretty much bunk", doesn't mean that it is ALL "pretty much bunk". I prefer not to throw the baby out with the bathwater and will assess each piece of information on its own merits, no matter where it comes from.
I cook food, yet I haven't been sick for well over the twelve years that I have avoided eating animal products. Am I an exception to your rule ?
There most definitely is cures available for cancer. You might like to check some of them out that have been posted on this forum, they are in the CANCER sub-forum ...
... you can even watch one cure that I've uploaded at this link ...
One Answer To Cancer
... though there are others available in the CANCER sub-forum as well.
Do you consider sitting in front of a computer and typing to be a part of "mutant lifestyles" ?
How about living in a house, driving a motor vehicle, or using public transport ?
Considering that the China Study (the largest nutritional study ever done - 10,000+ people) shows that animal protein 'turns on' cancer cells, why would I believe these people ?
Do they have verifiable documented evidence to present ?
Or is it all unverifiable personal testimonials ?THANK YOU
Sorry, I don't yet know how to reply to each indvidual part and I'm kind in a hurry so I'm going to do my best to address each of your points from down here.
Your author completely ignores the highly specialized set of stomachs (2-4 of them) that ruminants have, and that we don't. They also have almost 60,000 times more enzymes than we have to digest cellulose, to obtain the fat and proteins in plant matter.
- Also our digestive tract is 2.5 times shorter than most herbivores. Veggie fiber passes through an herbivore's system in about 48hrs compared to the 24 hrs it takes to pass through us. This is due to our shorter digestive tract and the lack of the multiple stomachs (we don't chew cud). Enter cooking, but I believe cooking to be unnatural, which is why we're not born breathing fire. (though that would be totally farking awesome!)
We also don't have gizzards to grind seeds like birds do, and our teeth really aren't that great at it, and even then, we wouldn't be able to utilize those raw seeds because they contain antinutrients and enzyme inhibitors that sap minerals and inhibit digestion and utilization of the nutrients. Sprouted grains fall under the vegetable category.
Our digestive tract is similar to frugivores, but eating a diet mainly of fruit, for most people will lead to teeth falling out, hyperactivity and a rollercoaster of energy and crashes. Unlike frugivores, we have a mainly acidic digestive system. Unlike carnivores we don't produce as much acid in the stomach, but we do produce the same amount of acid over our entire digestive system. Accomodating proper digestion of raw meat over the length of our longer-than-carnivores digestive tract.
Ok, now I'm out of time, will have to come back and continue this later, but thanks for the discussion! And thanks for the PM in detail re sacred geometry, I can't wait to learn more about it, thank you thank you!
