Fact: Human anatomy suggests otherwise. We’re designed to be able to eat meat occasionally, as a survival mechanism, but our digestive systems are very similar to those of the other plant-eaters and totally unlike those of carnivores. Also, the less meat someone eats, the less their risk of just about every major disease. Finally, people who don’t eat meat have better physical performance, whether they’re athletes or not. The argument that humans are carnivores because we possess “canine” teeth ignores the facts that other plant-eaters have these same so-called canine teeth, and that only plant-eaters have molar teeth.
