Humans are not natural carnivores

We at Pound360 hear it all the time. All the time. "Being a vegetarian is unhealthy. You need to eat meat. It's natural." Well, "that’s simply not true, scientifically." (Alternet)

You may love eating meat, and that's fine. Do it. But be careful, "when we kill animals to eat them, they end up killing us, because their flesh, which contains cholesterol and saturated fat, was never intended for human beings, who are natural herbivores.”

What about lions and tigers? They eat meat and they seem perfectly healthy. They are. But that's because in nature, "carnivores have short intestines so they can quickly get rid of all that rotting flesh they eat."

Oh, but humans have canine teeth for devouring prey, right? No. "[human canines] bear little resemblance to the canines of carnivores

So how did we end up as "behavioral omnivores"? Early humans may have scavenged meat from animals killed by carnivores during times of scarcity, developed a taste for it, and started herding animals about 10,000 years ago.

About Me

My photo
I started pound360 to channel my obsession with vitamins, running and the five senses. Eventually, I got bored focusing on all that stuff, so I came back from a one month hiatus in May of 2007 (one year after launching Pound360) and broadened my mumblings here to include all science.
