“You can’t tear flesh by hand, you can’t tear hide by hand. Our anterior teeth are not suited for tearing flesh or hide. We don’t have large canine teeth, and we wouldn’t have been able to deal with food sources that required those large canines.”

–Renowned anthropologist, Dr.Richard Leakey (Neal Barnard, The Power Of Your Plate, Book Publishing Company: Summertown, Tenn., 1990, p.170) According to biologists and anthropologists who study our anatomy and our evolutionary history, humans are herbivores who are not well suited to eating meat.

Unlike natural carnivores, we are physically and psychologically unable to rip animals limb from limb and eat and digest their raw flesh. Even cooked meat is likely to cause human beings, but not natural carnivores, to suffer from food poisoning, heart disease, and other ailments.

People who pride themselves on being part of the human hunter tradition should take a second look at the story of human evolution. Prehistoric evidence indicates that humans developed hunting skills relatively recently and that most of our short, meat-eating past was spent scavenging and eating almost anything in order to survive; even then, meat was a tiny part of our caloric intake.

Humans lack both the physical characteristics of carnivores and the instinct that drives them to kill animals and devour their raw carcasses. Ask yourself: When you see dead animals on the side of the road, are you tempted to stop for a snack? Does the sight of a dead bird make you salivate? Do you daydream about killing cows with

your bare hands and eating them raw? If you answered “no” to all of these questions, congratulations—you’re a normal human herbivore— like it or not. Humans were simply not designed to eat meat.

Although many modern humans eat a wide variety of plant and animal foods, earning us the honorary title of “omnivore,” we are anatomically herbivorous. Biologists have established that animals who share physical characteristics also share a common diet. Comparing the anatomy of carnivores with our own clearly illustrates

that we were not designed to eat meat.

Teeth and Nails

“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, which contains cholesterol and saturated fat, was never intended for human beings, who are natural herbivores.”

–William C.Roberts, M.D., editor, American Journal of Cardiology (Fact And Ideas From Anywhere, Baylor University Medical Center Proceedings, Oct.1999)

Although many modern humans eat a wide variety of plant and animal foods, earning us the honorary title of “omnivore,” we are anatomically herbivorous. Biologists have established that animals who share physical characteristics also share a common diet. Comparing the anatomy of carnivores with our own clearly illustrates

that we were not designed to eat meat.

To contrast human physiology with that of carnivores, start at the beginning of the digestive tract. Teeth, nails, and jaw structure indicate that nature intended for people to eat a plant-based diet. They have much shorter and softer fingernails than animals and pathetically small “canine” teeth (they’re canine in name only). In

contrast, carnivores all have sharp claws and large canine teeth capable of tearing flesh.

The jaws of carnivores move only up and down, requiring them to tear chunks of flesh from their prey and swallow it whole. Humans and other herbivores can move their jaws up and down and from side to side, a movement that allows them to grind up fruit and vegetables with their back teeth. Like other herbivores, human back

molars are flat and allow the grinding of fibrous plant foods. Carnivores lack these flat molars. If humans had been meant to eat meat, they would have the sharp teeth and claws of carnivores. Instead, their jaw structure, flat molars, and lack of claws

indicate that they are best suited for a plant-based diet.

Dr. Richard Leakey, a renowned anthropologist, summarizes, “You can’t tear flesh by hand, you can’t tear hide by hand. Our anterior teeth are not suited for tearing flesh or hide. We don’t have large canine teeth, and we wouldn’t have been able to deal with food sources that require those large canines.”

Stomach Acidity

After using their sharp claws and teeth to capture and kill their prey, carnivores swallow their food whole, relying on their extremely acidic stomach juices to do most of the digestive work. The stomach acid of carnivores actually plays a dual role-besides breaking down flesh, the acid also kills the dangerous bacteria that would otherwise sicken or kill the meat-eater.

As illustrated in the chart below, our stomach acids are much weaker in comparison because strong acids aren’t needed to digest pre-chewed fruits and vegetables. In comparing the stomach acidity of carnivores and herbivores, it is obvious that humans fall into the latter category. We can cook meat to kill some of the bacteria

and make it easier to chew, but it’s clear that humans, unlike all natural carnivores, are not designed to easily digest meat.

Intestinal Length

Evidence of our herbivorous nature is also found in the length of our intestines. Carnivores have short intestinal tracts and colons that allow meat to pass through it relatively quickly, before it has a chance to rot and cause illness. Humans, on the other hand, have intestinal tracts that are much longer than carnivores of comparable size. Like other herbivores, longer intestines allow the body more time to break down fiber and absorb the nutrients from a plant-based diet.

The long human intestinal tract actually makes it dangerous for people to eat meat. The bacteria in meat have extra time to multiply during the long trip through the digestive system, and meat actually begins to rot while it makes its way through the intestines. Many studies have also shown that meat can cause colon cancer in humans.

Comparing our anatomies clearly illustrates the fact that the human body is built to run on a vegetarian diet. Humans have absolutely none of the distinguishing anatomical characteristics that either carnivores or even natural omnivores have. Read author John Robbins’ discussion of the anatomical differences between

humans and carnivores.

Here is a chart from “The Comparative Anatomy of Eating” by Dr. Milton Mills that compares the typical anatomical features of carnivores, omnivores, herbivores, and humans. Notice how closely human physical characteristics match those of herbivores. Review Dr.Mills’ entire article on the topic.

Meat: Delicious or Disgusting?

“In the next ten years, one of the things you’re bound to hear is that animal protein…is one of the most toxic nutrients of all that can be considered.”

–Dr.T.Colin Campbell, director of the Cornell-China-Oxford Project on Nutrition, Health, and the Environment.

While carnivores take pleasure in killing animals and eating their raw flesh, any human who killed an animal with his or her bare hands and dug into the raw corpse would be considered deranged. Carnivorous animals are aroused by the scent of blood and the thrill of the chase. Most humans, on the other hand, are revolted by the sight of raw flesh and cannot tolerate hearing the screams of animals being ripped apart and killed. The bloody reality of eating animals is innately repulsive to us, more proof that we were not designed to eat meat.

Ask yourself: When you see dead animals on the side of the road, are you tempted to stop for a snack? Does the sight of a dead bird make you salivate? Do you daydream about killing cows with your bare hands and eating them raw? If you answered “no” to all of these questions, congratulations—you’re a normal human herbivore—like it or not. Humans were simply not designed to eat meat. Humans lack both the physical characteristics of carnivores and the instinct that drives them to kill animals and devour their raw carcasses.

If we were meant to eat meat, why is it killing us?

In addition to being anatomically ill equipped to digest meat in the short-term, the long-term damage that a meat-based diet wreaks on the human body confirms that we were not meant to eat flesh. Natural carnivores never suffer from heart disease, cancer, diabetes, strokes, or obesity, ailments that are caused in humans by the consumption of the saturated fat and cholesterol in meat.

Dr. William C. Roberts, M.D., editor of the authoritative American Journal of Cardiology, sums it up this way: “[A]lthough 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, which contains cholesterol and saturated fat, was never intended for human beings, who are natural herbivores.”

Studies have shown that even when fed 200 times the amount of animal fat and cholesterol that the average human consumes each day, carnivores do not develop the hardening of the arteries that leads to heart disease and strokes in humans. Indeed, researchers have found that it is impossible for carnivores to develop hardening of the arteries, no matter how much animal fat they consume.

Carnivores are capable of metabolizing all the fat and cholesterol in meat, but humans are a different story: Our bodies were not designed to process animal flesh, so all the excess fat and cholesterol from a meat-based diet makes us sick. Heart disease, for example, is the number one cause of death in America according to the American Heart Association, and medical experts agree that this ailment is the result of the consumption of animal products. In fact, meat-eaters have a 50 percent higher risk of developing heart disease than vegetarians, and a low-fat, completely vegetarian diet has been repeatedly used to unclog the arteries of heart disease patients—it not only prevents but also treats the disease!

In addition to pointing out the damage done by saturated fat and cholesterol, scientists have also shown that eating animal protein can be harmful to human health. We consume twice as much protein as we need when we eat a meat-based diet, and this leads to osteoporosis and kidney stones. Animal protein raises the acid level in human blood, causing calcium to be excreted from the bones to restore the blood’s natural pH balance. This calcium depletion leads to osteoporosis, and the excreted calcium ends up in the kidneys, where it can form kidney stones. The strain of processing all the excess animal protein from meat can also trigger kidney disease in meat-eaters.

The consumption of animal protein has also been linked to cancer of the colon, breast, prostate, and pancreas. In fact, according to Dr. T. Colin Campbell, the director of the Cornell-China-Oxford Project on Nutrition, Health, and the Environment, “In the next ten years, one of the things you’re bound to hear is that animal protein… is one of the most toxic nutrients of all that can be considered.”

Eating meat can also have negative consequences for stamina and sexual potency. One Danish study indicated that “Men peddling on a stationary bicycle until muscle failure lasted an average of 114 minutes on a mixed meat and vegetable diet, 57 minutes on a high-meat diet, and a whopping 167 minutes on a strict vegetarian diet.” Besides having increased physical endurance, vegans are also less likely to suffer from impotence.

Since we don’t have strong stomach acids like carnivores to kill all the bacteria in meat, dining on animal flesh can also give us food poisoning. In fact, according to the USDA, meat is the cause of 70 percent of foodborne illnesses in the United States because it’s often contaminated with dangerous bacteria like E. coli, listeria, and campylobacter. Every year in the United States alone, food poisoning sickens over 75 million people and kills more than 5,000. While carnivores can process all the saturated fat, protein, and bacteria in animal flesh, a meat-based diet can send humans to an early grave. Clearly, people were not intended to eat meat.

    “But flesh with the life thereof, which is the blood thereof, shall ye not eat. And surely your blood of your lives will I require; at the hand of every beast will I require it.” (Genesis 9.4-5)

    “Every moving thing that is alive shall be food for you; I give all to you, as I gave the green plant. Only you shall not eat flesh with its life, that is, its blood” (Genesis 9:3,4).

    “It shall be a perpetual statute for your generations throughout all your dwellings, that ye eat neither fat nor blood. (Leviticus 3.17). . . And whatsoever man there be of the house of Israel, or of strangers who sojourn among you, that eateth any manner of blood; I will even set My face against that soul that eateth blood.” (Leviticus 17.10)

    “To what purpose is the multitude of your sacrifices unto me? Saith the Lord: I am full of the burnt offerings of rams, and the fat of fed beasts; and I delight not in the blood of bullocks, or of lambs, or of goats. When ye spread forth your hands, I will hide Mine eyes from you: yea, when ye make many prayers, I will not hear, for your hands are full of blood.” (Isaiah 1.11,15)

  3. Very enlightning! Exactly what I was looking for. I had been told about the dangers of meat, but this hit the spot. Very eye-opening.

  4. i think its ok 2 eat meat but not so much.
    in supermarkets you see hundreds of meat lying down there, but not everything will sell, there are leftovers that can be threw away, so they threwed away a animal. so sick

    • I agree entirely. Not only does this person ignore the fact that we have both herbiverous and carniverous teeth (Canines! Hello!). But we have a dual digestive system as well.

  5. This article is pure, unadulterated ignorance.

  6. Very refreshing.. Even more evidence to prove the point that we were meant to eat a plant based diet. Within just a few months, my cholesterol has dropped from 220 down to just 130, and have never felt better, from omitting animal products in my diet. As for the Bible verses.. like any other subject in the bible, it can be interpreted a number of ways… but I personally feel that every vegetable, fruit, grain, nut, seed, root, legume, etc.. *things we can GROW* ..was put on earth for our consumption. Animals were most likely created for many reasons.. we are, after all.. a mammal as well. Whether for are convenience (transportation, horseback riding), companionship … whatever.. i believe they are also are *LAST* resort for food for our survival. But, you know.. as long as something tastes good and is convenient, it will be supported and defended by many.

  7. Hi…. I agree completely! ….
    Humanity Evolved from a Common Ape Ancestor. Our Nearest living Relative is The Chimpanzee. Chimps live Their lives in a Very Similar way to us, Natural Parent Bonding, Making Wars and Also Making Tools. Chimps are also Mainly Vegetarian! Although it is known for them to Go Hunting, this is Only Very Occasionally and the Animal/Bird caught is Shared between the Entire Group, giving each Individual only The Smallest Portion of Meat! …. Surely Our Digestive System has NOT Evolved to be that much Different from Chimps? Surely it is Our Nearest Relative We should be looking at for Clues to the Many Questions We ponder about Ourselves!? … With Modern Research, it is Obvious to me that Mankind should NOT be Eating Meat on such an Enormous Scale (If at All!) and as We are now seeing from Our Cultures Obesity and Bad-Health Issues, We should be taking a Very Serious look at Our Diet. Imagine The Savings on Medical Schemes and Bills and More Importantly the Benefits it Could have on Our Daily Lives, Both Physically and Mentally!!! … Best Regards …. Paul.

  8. Wow, rubbish. All the same can be said about eating plants… How about you spend your time doing something useful like creating a flux capacitor or something that actually benefits humanity.

  10. This is retarded, it seems to me the research you put into this was clearly biased; you scanned the internet looking for things not to figure the truth out, but to support your argument. Ask yourself, if humans stop eating meat, what would happen? You may be right when it comes to anatomy, but if you think about it we evolved to be omnivorous, and we have taken a relatively high place on the food chain, do you realize the problems that will come about if we do, or a large part of the population did, if you take a major meat eater out of the equation of this, there would be many problems, overpopulation would occur in many species, then they would die, some might go extinct, probably not but its possible, lowering the population of something would cause something that ate it to starve. So you and vegetarians alike, stop trying to recruit. And as you saunter along blithely with ignorance, believing blissfully, that you are doing a service to humans and animals, as all the problems drip down the food chain, you leave a path of destruction in your wake. And what you thought you were saving, dies

  11. You know, I don’t give a damn what a person choses to eat… however, you should be damn glad our ancestors ate mixed diets. The added energy and food supply gave us an edge freeing up energy and time to thrive.

    You are now, thanks to technology and modern understanding, able to chose your diet to suit your needs… with portions of the planet not having such luxuries I might add.

    We are omnivors. As are many apes. Yes, our bodies aren’t adapted for a fully meat diet, nor are we for a total plant diet (Without caution for specific vitamins and minerals of course).

    If you chose to use such a diet, that’s fine. Enjoy, and I’m happy it’s working out for you and wish you the best. However, you really need to get over yourself. This whole artical is a plea to ignorance, and cherry picking research results which support your views… which I might add is a very common theme among vegan sites. I’ve seen many go so far as to proclaim proudly they only follow research done by vegans when researching vegans… yeah, that’s good un-biased science.

    I won’t be back, so respond as you see fit… I’m sure it will be the typical “Oh, he doesn’t understand” nonsense… people aren’t annoyed by vegans for eating vegatables, we’re annoyed that you won’t shut up.

  12. I think all these points are valid.
    First of all, Joe, the only reason there are
    so many chickens, and cows, ext. Is because we
    overbreed them for meat. If we did not eat meat
    we would not to breed them, they would live for
    milk, and eggs.

    I believe when you eat meat you are being so
    selfish, you are brainwashed to think killing
    something ALIVE, and something with feelings,
    is okay to eat? Do you not relize what you are
    doing ! Animals love, they think, they feel
    pain. Go watch some videos on youtube how pigs
    are slaughtered, they cry out in PAIN, and
    you believe this is OKAY?

    I am only 17 years old,
    and i relized it was wrong to eat meat,
    first of all i am much healthier being
    vegetarian i hvae so much more energy,
    and eating a vegetarian meal makes you feel
    good, it does not make you feel bloated like
    meat does.

    I used to eat meat when i was little and i
    loved it, i come from a polish family,
    and meat was always part of the meal.
    People do not relize how eay it is to stop
    eating it.

    If you believe that animals should not need to
    suffer this kind of pain for our own selfishness,
    then try it, stop eating meat for a month, and
    i guarentee you’ll feel so good about yourself.

    Go on Peta and find some vegetarian dishes
    they are delicious!

    If you think that animals are meant to be
    tortured for food then you have no heart,
    why don’t you go eat your dog then?
    & if you care about the environment
    what do you think is the leading cause of
    global warming? The MEAT INDUSTRY.

    • I know your post is almost 2 years old, but wow. You think plants aren’t ‘alive’? Just because they don’t have cute puppy dog eyes or make noises when we rip their life from them? Everything in the universe is made of the same matter, animated in different ways and to differing degrees. The sad reality is that everything must kill to survive, regardless of how you want to look at it. You chop down a fruit bush to eat, you’re depriving millions of LIVING cells their spark of life in order to keep yours burning. Hopefully now that you’re 19 you’re a little less naive and peta-brainwashed.

      • Paula Pawelec

        OMG go educate yourself. I know plants are alive, but they do not have a nervous system. Find a different argument so unintelligent.

        Sent from my iPhone

    • Sorry Paula but you’re completely brainwashed, and are basing your diet on some pretty subjective things. You can eat meat without TORTURING ANIMALS. The factory farming industry is sick, but the eating of meat itself isn’t the problem, it’s how it’s done. It is possible to humanely raise and kill animals without them crying out in pain. I agree that that’s horrible, but then I also think deforestation is horrible, but I’m not about to stop using anything wooden, you’ve just got to use wood from a sustainable source.

      I agree with Digital. We are what we are and have the luxury of sitting around debating diet BECAUSE of eating meat. Otherwise we would be sitting around all day nibbling on fibrous plant material like gorillas. Looking at how apes live should NOT be a guide for humans. Our species diverged millions of years ago. One of the things that changed was our higher reliance on meat.

      I agree that a lot of people eat too much meat, but as we’ve been eating meat for millions of years and the higher incidences of heart disease and cancer and whatnot have only occurred in the last hundred or so years, it’s very unlikely to have anything to do with meat itself, but rather is to do with modern processing, diets high in sugar, less and less exercise, pumping animals up on antibiotics, feeding them grain…

      Vegetarianism is not the magical answer to solving the world’s problems. There’s a lot more to it. People who have made the effort to change to vegetarianism obviously had an interest in health in the first place and are likely living overall more healthy, balanced, active lifestyles. I would like to see some unbiased figures on the differences between vegetarians and balanced meat/veg eaters with the same lifestyles.

      I really can’t stand the holier than thou attitudes a lot of veggies have. This article is pretty unscientific in its wording as well. We weren’t DESIGNED or MADE for anything, we simply evolved, by the best behaviours and traits for our survival being selected. Meat eating was selected for. You just can’t argue with that. It’s possible that we’ll now gradually evolve to being herbivores, but evolution is slow, it’s going to take thousands of years at least, so get off your high horses and let people make their own decisions based on unbiased facts, not some Garden of Eden fairy tale.

      Saying people being repulsed by the sight of a ripped up animal means we aren’t meant to eat meat is another bad argument. People raised on farms, who are USED to seeing and dealing with death, do not find it disturbing. That’s not to say it’s fun or nice, it’s just part of life. It’s called culture, something else you can thank meat eating for. Many people eat raw meat, too, another thing that differs across cultures. Meat eating increased with the use of tools (millions of years ago), so our not having claws or the strength to rip things limb from limb, again, is no argument.

      As for global warming in Paula’s comment – changes in the earth’s temperature have happened since the dawn of time. Ice ages, times when there were no polar ice caps. The only difference these days is that the changes are more rapid, but if you look at the data, the decreasing gaps between the changes have, themselves, been happening for millions of years – long, long before agriculture and the domestication of animals.

      Agriculture is probably the worst thing that’s happened for this planet, apart from things that couldn’t be controlled like meteors. And it’s been as detrimental to humans as it has been beneficial, what with the epidemiological transition that came with agriculture (way more infectious disease among humans).

      Physiologically, we’re Hunter Gatherers. Why deny it? Why hide behind childish squeamishness about the fact you have to kill to live? A squeamishness probably caused by our only needing to pop down to the supermarket to get everything we need all nicely packaged – again, an effect of culture.

      As a Pagan, I cannot see an animal as more valuable than, say, a tree. Just because it’s further removed than us, just because we can’t sympathise, just because we don’t think it’s “sentient,” doesn’t mean its life is less valuable. Of course I wouldn’t kill my pet dog for food. But I don’t have a problem with people eating dogs in places where it’s common to eat dogs. Again, it’s culture. I wouldn’t eat another human and don’t think any carnivore would eat their own kind unless they’re desperate, either.

      Like it or not, our place in the food chain, the cycle of life, is above the herbivores, and I don’t think we should be throwing things out of whack. Simply, you can be healthy and ethical without being a vegetarian.

  13. irene misanvu omalla

    thank you for you search.its very true africans like meat they have acquired all these disease.but do not now the cause,my daddy died of intestine cancer,my mum
    diabetics but i never new the cause,that
    today my subconscious talked to me .am changing my diet before its tolate.thank you.

  14. It is important to have a balanced diet. Incorporating lots of fresh, organic ingredients is crucial to your health.

  15. If proto-humans never began to eat meat, you would not even be intelligent enough to write this garbage.

  16. And a note about Peta!

    PETA’s Dirty Secret
    Hypocrisy is the mother of all credibility problems, and People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) has it in spades. While loudly complaining about the “unethical” treatment of animals by restaurant owners, grocers, farmers, scientists, anglers, and countless other Americans, the group has its own dirty little secret.

    PETA kills animals. By the thousands.

    From July 1998 through December 2009, People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) killed over 23,000 dogs, cats, and other “companion animals.” That’s more than five defenseless creatures every day. PETA has a walk-in freezer to store the dead bodies, and contracts with a Virginia Beach company to cremate them.

    Not counting the pets PETA spayed and neutered, the group put to death over 90 percent of the animals it took in during the last five years. And its angel-of-death pattern shows no sign of changing.

    » Skeptical? Click here to see the proof.

    On its 2002 federal income-tax return, PETA claimed a $9,370 write-off for a giant walk-in freezer, the kind most people use as a meat locker or for ice-cream storage. But animal-rights activists don’t eat meat or dairy foods. And during a 2007 criminal trial, a PETA manager (testifying under oath) confirmed the obvious — that the group uses the appliance to store the bodies of its victims.

    In 2000, when the Associated Press first noted PETA’s Kervorkian-esque tendencies, PETA president Ingrid Newkirk complained that actually taking care of animals costs more than killing them. “We could become a no-kill shelter immediately,” she admitted.

    PETA kills animals. Because it has other financial priorities.

    PETA rakes in nearly $30 million each year in income, much of it raised from pet owners who think their donations actually help animals. Instead, the group spends huge sums on programs equating people who eat chicken with Nazis, scaring young children away from drinking milk, recruiting children into the radical animal-rights lifestyle, and intimidating businessmen and their families in their own neighborhoods. PETA has also spent tens of thousands of dollars defending arsonists and other violent extremists.

    PETA claims it engages in outrageous media-seeking stunts “for the animals.” But which animals? Carping about the value of future two-piece dinners while administering lethal injections to puppies and kittens isn’t ethical. It’s hypocritical — with a death toll that PETA would protest if it weren’t their own doing.

    PETA kills animals. And its leaders dare lecture the rest of us?

  17. Not to forget that plant eaters have flat faces like hippos and people, meat eaters have long faces like dogs and cats.

  18. Yes, it’s good to be a vegetarian, it could help the environment, we can be a more healthier being (include healthy mind & thoughts).

    I also heard animal distress produces toxin which could harm us who consume it.

    Other think is that animal also has a soul like us: animal has feelings too. Even though they are not smart like us but they know how to take care of their children from strangers (other animals)

    I got this site that I would like to share it’s called manifestation of fish spirit http://fpanhealth.com/i-kuan-tao/about/manifestation-of-a-fishs-spirit/

  19. Genesis 9: 3-6″Every moving thing that liveth shall be meat for you; even as the green herb have I given you all things. But flesh with the life thereof, which is the blood thereof, shall ye not eat. And surely your blood of your lives will I require; at the hand of every beast will I require it, and at the hand of man; at the hand of every man’s brother will I require the life of man. Whoso sheddeth man’s blood, by man shall his blood be shed: for in the image of God made he man.”

    Romans 14: 21 & 23 “It is good neither to eat flesh, nor to drink wine, nor any thing whereby thy brother stumbleth, or is offended, or is made weak. And he that doubteth is damned if he eat, because he eateth not of faith: for whatsoever is not of faith is sin.”
