As the title suggests, it is my "opinion" that it is not natural for humans, that have evolved past animals (arts, religions, spiritualism, etc.),
to obtain their sustenance in phisical form. I say "opinion" because I happen to be a practising breatharian.
1. A decaying digestive system from teeth to appendix
a. Teeth - Humans lose most of their teeth with age. This is true of people of any background, regardless of diet. Ever seen a picture of an old
man from a primitive tribe, with nearly all or all of their teeth missing? (No, not because of sugars.) What do you think dentures exist for? Have you
ever seen a cow or a horse with missing teeth? A crocodile? What about sharks?
What about cavities that form in humans regardless of diet. So it's not sugars. People that live on low-sugar diets still have cavities.
Cavities occur in just 1.38% of the permanent teeth of wild chimpanzees, researchers reported. And chimpanzees eat a lot of fruit full of sugars.
According to the National Institute of Dental and Craniofacial Research, 92% of American adults aged 20-64 have had a cavity. Tell me what's natural
What is natural about the need to brush? No animal brushes their teeth. And what is it with fluoride in water and toothpastes? Why would humans
need that when animals are fine without it? Most of you claim humans to be omnivore, meaning we eat a wider variety of foods containing a wider
variety of minerals than, say, cows, or lions. They don't need fluoride or toothpaste - why would we?
What is natural about dentures, or the need for drilling, filling, and root canal treatment? Horses and all other animals seem to be just fine
Please endulge me and explain what purpose wisdom teeth serve. They usually don't come out until we are in our 30s and 40s. Just because we
have certain organs does not mean they are used or needed.
b. Stomach - The human stomach is the weakest I have ever seem- clearly hardly fit for the job. Why is it that animals have no problem digesting
raw meat, or drinking muddy water from rivers, but we get sick as soon as we do what's "natural"? Try drinking water from a pond or a lake. Your
dog can do it without getting sick. Why can't you?
c. The end bit - The appendix is a clear example of a decaying digestive system. Totally useless, mine was removed when I was a child. It serves no
purpose What about human feces of all sorts of consistency? And the accompanying conditions ranging from constipation to diarrhea. Any animal produces
feces of the same consistency - you can 100% predict what it will look like when it emerges from a cow, as opposed to a sheep or rabbit. Does diarrhea
feel natural to you? It's the body's way of telling you that the food you crammed into your body is f*cked up.
Also, the human aversion to the by-products of digestion is an obvious sign that we all consider the matter unnatural in our own subconscious
mind. No animal has a natural reaction that would be similar to a human when they come into contact with feces. In fact, your dog will happily go into
a full-body roll into the first cow dung it finds. Humans, on the other hand, have made the whole subject into a big taboo, and will hide in shame
when they're doing their "business" in the toilet, behind closed doors. Same goes for passing gas. Think about it. Your dog knows when it's done
something wrong, like when you come home to find it has torn apart a feather pillow, it will display its shame. But it will never feel ashamed about
defecating or farting. Only humans hide it. Why? Because it feels unnatural for us. We're not animals, we have evolved past all that. On every level
- mental, spiritual, AND PHYSICAL.
d. Miscellaneous - What is natural about reflux, heartburn and indigestion? Doesn't it sound like your stomach wants that [email protected]
out? Isn't the
message clear? What about irritable bowel syndrome? Or the numerous food allergies sweeping the human population all over the planet? What about
diabetes? Do these seem natural to you? Please tell me how obesity is natural. Have you ever seen an obese chimpanzee?
As you probably have guessed, all these organs are simply vestigial organs, the remnants from our previous evolutionary stages that we no longer need,
like the previously-mentioned appendix and wisdom teeth, but also lots of other thing like body hair, male nipples, tail bones (all similar in
principle to the wings of flightless birds). As long as they're being used by the majority of the species they remain functional. (Using the teeth
and tongue for speech is a distinct evolutionary advantage.) Even after their use has been abandoned by all members of the species it takes a long
period of non-use (usually hundreds of thousands or even millions of years) by a species for an organ to become dysfunctional and atrophied and even
more to disappear altogether.
2. The vitamin conspiracy - Before the "discovery" of vitamins humans were just fine without them. Even today, many vegans today live on a handful
(sometimes just one or two) of foods that do not contain ALL the vitamins (or minerals for that matter). Yet they do not suffer ill effects. Some of
them don't even bother with soy or other source of protein to "replace" meat. They live without proteins. Or did you think that the Inuit and
Eskimos have been living over the Arctic Circle for thousand of years eating carrots and oranges? I watched a documentary on Inuit lifestyle and they
admit openly: (paraphrasing) they don't bother with fruits and vegetables, they have no need for them. Don't be mislead by wikipedia. No, most
Eskimo families do NOT hunt for beluga whales, many don't even bother with fish as they are small and take long to catch. Most only eat seal as that
feeds the family for a long time (read: fills their stomach). There is virtually no vitamin in seal meat. Same goes for all people living in the
tundra, in Siberia etc. I maintain that either all that "science" is myth and conspiracy, or the human body is natively able to synthesise what it
needs. Yes, we do need certain vitamins, most notably vitamin C, however these can be obtained in alternative ways.
3. Those deceptive hunger pangs - Anyone who has done a dry fast for at least 2-3 days knows that it's not the body that will make you want to eat.
The hunger pangs will come and go the first day, from the second day onwards you NO LONGER FEEL HUNGER (wonder why), however your MIND will be
thinking about food non-stop unless you find an effective way to distract your attention. Simply put, eating is an addiction of the mind. You eat when
you're bored, you eat as a force of habit, you eat to socialise. Not because you need it or it's natural. Or because you're hungry.
