When we look at the animal kingdom it is clear where we belong in nature among the other animals. We have many similarities to primates: chimps, monkeys and gorillas. We are most closely related to chimpanzees, with an estimated 99.4 percent of our DNA sequence shared.
Our hands are flexible, we have nails and opposable thumbs. Teeth that grind, flattened except for the canines. Our back molars are designed to grind up plants for easy digestion.
Animals like tigers, which are carnivorous animals, have inflexible fingers, which are designed to push out claws and retract them. The purpose of these claws are to tear into the flesh of their prey. Carnivore animals have sharp fangs, even their back molars are sharp, perfect for capturing and ingesting their prey. They eat their meals raw. It would be impossible for them to survive without the claws and teeth. Our hands, teeth and bodies weren’t designed to hunt and eat animals in the same way.
There are further differences, our digestive systems are also designed much differently. Our livers have low tolerance for uric acid. Animal protein creates uric acid as a by product. The tiger has a uricase, which is an enzyme in the tigers liver that gives it fifteen times the capacity to breakdown the uric acid from animal protein than the human’s liver.
Our stomachs are also much different. The stomach acid in a carnivore has a high concentration of acid. It efficiently and quickly digests raw animal protein. Human stomach acid is far less concentrated. Researchers have found that carnivore stomach acid is ten times more concentrated, some studies suggest that number is much more.
The human intestine is around thirty feet long and about twelve times the size of our torsos. It is extremely complex. It is purposely designed long so our bodies can digest and absorb minerals and nutrients from plants and fruits. These breakdown quickly and can pass through our bodies faster than animal protein can. Carnivores have short intestines designed to quickly get rid of acidic waste.
Our bodies are designed to eat a plant based diet. Our teeth, hands and digestive system all created to digest fruits and vegetables. Eating animal proteins creates disturbances within all of our bodies systems.
Digestion of animal protein in the body produces toxins. The liver struggles to process all of the uric acid. This leads to big trouble because the liver already has so much to do. It is in charge of cleansing the body of toxins and metabolizing fats.
The intestines, long and windy, were not designed to digest animal proteins. The digestive process takes so long in a hot environment it begins to petrify and rot leading to toxins and unhealthy bacterial growth. The toxins are then absorbed into the blood stream through the colon and spread through our bloodstreams. Our blood becomes clogged with toxins, depriving our bodies of essential minerals and nutrients. These toxins can prematurely age and clog the skin cells.
So where do we belong in nature? We are designed to eat a diet of fruits and vegetables, sprouts, seeds and nuts. With this type of diet, we thrive and flourish. We are able to get our essential nutrients and keep our bodies free of toxins. We avoid feeling sick, prematurely aging, and obesity.
