I hope you enjoyed yesterday’s post about effects the animals have on an “every day Omni diet”.
Today I thought that I would talk about health and what what problems arise when eating meat and animal bi products.
The health side of being vegan was definitely the main reason why I wanted to know more about the lifestyle and I found it very insteresting, so I hope you do to. A lot of these facts come from a documentary called “forks over knifes” which mainly focuses on health and what problems people face and why. They do also touch a little on the animals. You can find it (along with lots of other pro vegan health documentaries on Netflix in the UK).
Most people at the moment believe that we humans are designed to eat meat. I have asked why and they say that we are at the top of the food chain. Can I just start by saying that we aren’t. Do you feel that you could kill and eat a lion with your own teeth and two hands? Without any kind of weapon? I can tell you now, you will lose, hard. We are not at the top of the food chain. We have invented weapons to protect ourselves, which sure, do give us an edge, but we still need to look out for ourselves.
If you look at a lion compared to us you will probably see their teeth first. Huge, sharp and ready to rip any flesh apart. Ours, are small round and pretty much blunt, there’s a reason we have to use forks and knifes to eat.
How about running? A lion, on average can run 80km/h. A human? 45km/h. Both in shorts spurts. A lion will thrash that race.
How about our digestive system? A lions intestines is about 5 feet where as ours is 25 feet which means the meat we eat is stuck in our bodies for longer and therefore creating more damage.
A lions stomach is also acidic, ours is alkaline. Do you want me to carry on with the differences here? We are not lions, we can eat like lions nor can we digest like lions.
However, if you look at a gorillas diet, who is a herbacour – vegan, then you will see that their teeth is very similar to ours, a grinding jaw, round teeth. Our intestines are also very similar. We have a lot of traits very similar to gorillas, not just in terms of our teeth or intestines. To me this shows that humans can live of plants and be very healthy.
So if we eat like a gorilla, will we get all the neccacery minerals and vitamins that we need? Shortly, yes. If you eat between 2000 to 2500 calories everyday that is balanced and full of fruit, veg and beans, you will not get ill.
That includes protein! Can I just say, if you are worried about protein, please ask yourself, have you ever heard of someone who eats a healthy balanced diet with the correct calories be ill from not have lung enough protein? No, I’m telling you know that no you haven’t, because it doesn’t exist. Meat companies made it up as properganda to sell their products and to earn more money. And anyway, do you really think that some of the strongest animals on earth, gorilla and elephants are lacking in protein because they don’t eat dead, rotting flesh? No. That also included a calcium! You don’t need a pint of milk to get your calcium, there’s more in tofu than milk, plus you don’t get all the crap that goes along with milk like puss, shit, hormones and cholesterol.
Meat and animal bi products cause a lot of illnesses. Like hurt attacks, cancer, high blood pressure, type 2 diabetises and so much more.
I think I will do a separate post on of that due to this post getting very long. I don’t want to bombard you. It will be up soon.
I hope you found this post interesting and opened your eyes a bit to the brainwash that goes on.
Health part 2, the environment and the sea will be following shortly. If you have any questions then please comment below and don’t forget to check out Forks over Knifes on Netflix.
