Roughyed BS: Vegetarianism the truth (75* d) RE: BS: Vegetarianism the truth 30 Apr 03


What humans who eat meat usually are is carrion eaters. Very few humans eat meat while it is still kicking like true predator carnivores. No they wait until it has been dead for a long while, then cover up it's taste by spicing, cooking, salting - anything to make it taste different to freshly killed raw flesh.

Some of the people on this site must have very strange bodies if they think they are naturally omnivorous. We resemble our nearest cousins the gorilla and orang utan (both frugivores) in dentition, digestive enzymes and gut formation a damn site more than we resemble the average pig (although I have seen some people that I would say the jury is out on).

I don't think that this invalidates anyone's diet. Eat what you like but don't misrepresent biology.
