I was not going to respond until I saw that false statement. That is an old wives tale, no doubt fabricated by someone trying to force their lifestyle
upon others through the use of lies. Ask any abdominal surgeon. I have.
I believe that lie was most likely propagated by those profiting from High Colonic's. These confidence persons need a way to convince people a
worthless procedure is necessary and what better way than to convince you that you have something disgusting in your Colon. Well, actually you do, but
only just prior to defecation. The rest of the time you have a nice clean bowel.
The fact that we are Omnivores is proved by observing our closest ancestors; the Great Apes. All of which, eat meat when available. In fact Bonobo's
have been observed engaging in Cannibalism.
Your point about not salivating at the site of prey is an extremely fallacious argument. Due to our modern lifestyle we have been removed from the act
of obtaining food. Were that not true, I assure you that even you would salivate at the prospect of a food source high in protein and food value. It
is in fact our current culture and diet that is unnatural; not the other way around.
Grain is not however a truly natural part of our diet. Were you to attempt to subsist on raw grain, your teeth would be worn flat and useless at a
very young age. We also don't metabolize the overabundance of carbohydrates in grains. Obesity in our society is not from eating meat, but from
eating to many carb's in the form of bread, pasta and other grain products.
Animal protein is such an important part of our worlds diet, that if you were to remove it today; it would not be unreasonable to expect hundred of
millions, if not billions to starve the first year.
Being raised around Farms and Ranches and having hunted and fished all my life; I'm far closer to having a natural response than someone who has
never collected their own food. I assure you I do salivate. You don't because you probably live in a shell, insulated from the real source of your
food. It is that lifestyle which is unnatural, not the other way around.
Wild Game is incredibly nutritious and in fact counters all the arguments against eating meat. When I sit down to a meal of Moose or Elk, I am not
eating any of the bad fat's because this meat contains none. Likewise for Buffalo which I also enjoy. Salmon and other cold water fishes are also an
incredible source of nutrition that is natural for us to eat.
We evolved as hunter-gatherers. That is still at the core of our physiology I believe. Grains and sugars and other unnatural additions came as a
result of adding farming to our cultures. It is little wonder than we have not evolved to fully tolerate these sugars in the mere 10,000 years since
we added them to our diets. You should be far more concerned about these sugars you are eating to substitute for the calories you are not getting from
your natural diet that should include meat and fish.
