FORM DEFINES FUNCTION

Comparative anatomy works on the simple and demonstrable fact that the biological form usually defines function. Scientific observation provides us with an indicator of ideal human nutrition, which is clearly closer to that of an herbivore and not a carnivore or omnivore:

Notice that the only thing humans have in common with carnivores or omnivores is a simple stomach which, coincidentally, is the only thing that differentiates us from (some) herbivores.

 

The human body evolved to be able to digest meat in times of need, but it doesn't do it very efficiently, especially not when inundated with the quantities many of us consume multiple times every day. Eating too much protein is one of the worst acid-producing behaviors, as is eating too many carbs.

 

Carbs and proteins are necessary for our health and survival, but most of us eat way too many of them and not nearly enough fruits and vegetables. It's not our fault that we aren't taught to eat by design or with respect to the different types of digestion, and it's not our instructors' faults that they are ignorant of the truth.

 

Sadly, ignorance is no excuse in the eyes of Mother Nature. When we sin against Her, we pay—ALWAYS—whether we recognize the price immediately thru suffering digestive upset, flash headaches, rashes, lung congestion, bowel problems, etc, or if it builds cumulatively over years and results in the development of chronic health problems including obesity, diabetes, fibromyalgia, erectile dysfunction, Alzheimer's, COPD, Crohn's, and cancers. When we eat with disregard for Nature's indicators, the result is nutrient deficiency, and deficiency breeds the whole host of human health problems.

 

But when we flip the old script and start eating more of the alkaline nutrient-dense fruits and veggies than acid-producing carbs and proteins—and stop eating these acid-producers together—our health improves dramatically, and remarkably quickly as well. It should be obvious by this that we are, by Nature, designed to eat as herbivores (regardless of how much we may we love the taste of meat), since eating a more plant-based diet naturally encourages our bodies to function properly.

 

In reality we are frugivores, or fruit eaters. Our bodies are designed to digest and assimilate fruits more than any other type of food, and when you consider that "fruit" is defined as "the sweet and fleshy product of a tree or other plant that contains seed and can be eaten as food," well then that includes not only all the things we commonly recognize as fruits but also lots of things we call vegetables as well: Broccoli, cauliflower, cucumber, eggplant, green bean, okra, peppers, summer/yellow squash, and zucchini, to name a few... To which we should also be sure to add plenty of edible leafy greens, stems, and some roots.

 

As with everything else in life, it's about moderation and being sensible: Let fruits and veggies slowly take over and then dominate the daily diet, with milk, proteins, or carbs taking the side stage but never together in the same meal.

Cultivating these 2 habits alone will do wonders for anyone's health, longevity, and quality of life.
