Anonymous asked: You say out GIT is herbivorous. Herbivores either have a four chambered stomach or an extended caecum and we have neither I don't understand.
despite NOT having the aforementioned bits our intestines match those of herbivores?!
veganism removes the ability to logic from people’s brains.
incontrovertible proof here!
You know I really wish Milton Mills MD’s (who is not an anatomist) “Comparative Anatomy of Eating” would fall of a cliff somewhere into a deep dark hole so that people would stop thinking their myths have any scientific basis. That bullshit is far to easy to refute if you have even a basic grounding in human biology and evolution. But don’t take my word for it, here’s a vegetarian (who happens to also be an anatomist and primatologist):
No. I said our intestines match other herbivores which they do. Ours are very long but carnivores have short intestines so they can quickly get rid of the flesh they eat. We are biologically entirely herbivorous.
Intestinal absorption is a surface area, not linear problem. Dogs (which are carnivores) have intestinal specializations more characteristic of omnivores than carnivores such as cats. The relative number of crypts and cell types is a better indication of diet than simple length. We are intermediate between the two groups.

(seriously go read the whole thing, he talks about jaws, saliva, evolution… tldr take home? homo habilis ate meat, humans today eat meat, ergo we are omnivores, now stop.)
Eat what you like, but enough with the pseudo science already.
