"If slaughterhouses had glass walls, everyone would be a vegetarian." 
Paul McCartney

And we say also that if dairy farms had glass walls, everyone would be vegan!


  Info Box
Colon cancer affects 20% of American families.  The facts are that meat, dairy and eggs can be linked directly or indirectly to about 90% of all physical problems and deaths in America today! 
    50% of all Americans die from heart attacks and strokes 
    33% of all Americans die from cancer 
    8% of all Americans die from diabetes

What we put into our mouths truly affects our bodies for good or bad.

 

Are we carnivores? or are we herbivores?  

Let's take a look at how we are made, physically.  Knowing how the body is made will help us understand how it works and what types of foods are best.
 

 

Carnivores have the following physical characteristics:

  • Digestive System: short and straight for quick process of animal flesh. Meat does not remain in system long enough to decay
  • Saliva: acidic to dissolve bones plus a high hydrochloric acid content in their stomach to breakdown and digest flesh
  • Teeth: sharp for ripping and tearing flesh, cannot move side to side for grinding
  • Cholesterol: able to deal with cholesterol and uric acid from meat which requires higher levels of acid to breakdown
     

Herbivores have the following physical characteristics:

  • Digestive System: Long with many twists and turns for breakdown of plant fibers. Meat stays in 98.6 degree system long enough to decay and leach toxins into blood stream
  • Saliva: alkaline to digest complex carbohydrates
  • Teeth: flat for grinding, moving side to side, and breaking down plant fibers
  • Cholesterol: not able to deal with cholesterol and uric acid from meat, our bodies make their own cholesterol. Meat has no fiber requiring higher levels of acid to break down - in human body this results in acid reflux and also causes the body to pull calcium from our bones to re-balance the body's pH

Protein Let's take a look at protein now that we have a little better idea of how our bodies are made in relation to meat.

  What are we?
"Although we think we are one, and we act as if we are one, human beings are not natural carnivores...When we kill animals to eat them, they end up killing us because their flesh...was never intended for human beings, who are naturally herbivores."
William Roberts, editor in chief of the American Journal of Cardiology, 1991 editorial
