Gout is a Common Problem in Human Meat Eaters but so Many People Seem to Think we are Omnivores
By definition an omnivore is an animal that eats both plants and other animals, which many people, in fact most people will accept this as the category where humans fit in. The reason for this is because when we look around a bit we see humans eating both plants and animals. In that respect I suppose this is true, we humans eat both plants and animals.
If you change the definition of omnivores to the category of eater that has a body that is designed to eat both plants and animals then humans certainly do not fit in that group at all. As I explained in a previous post, we do have so called canine teeth but so do many other animals who do not eat much meat at all, in fact some eat no animal products and have huge canine teeth, which make the rather weak and flat ones in a human mouth look like they are not even canines. Tearing up fruits and vegetables are a much better use for these than tearing into a live animal in order to kill it and consume it. We would have a very difficult time getting through all the bones and tissues in most animals with only our teeth.
Why would we have a body designed perfectly to consume plants but lacks in it's ability to consume animals but still are designed to eat both plants and animals. There is no argument that bears and pigs are omnivores. Ok, maybe some of you will argue this but most people accept these facts. Compare the body of a bear or a pig to a human and we get few similarities. Our digestive tract is way too long. If we are meant to consume meat or animals if I may, then why would we have such a long digestive tract that we find meat putrefies before it is digested. If you don't believe me, then spend some time in a public toilet in a fast food restaurant, or in most any restaurant that serves meat and you'll soon find out. The stench of rotting flesh is in the air as soon as a meat eater sits down for their once a week bowel movement, ok so maybe it's once every 2 or 3 days but I remember when I was consuming animals, I rarely was able to produce a bowel movement more than once every other day.
Then of course there is the rarely mentioned fact that an animal's natural food will not make them sick. In fact a dog or cat can consume meat from freshly killed animals every single day of it's life for every single meal and they do not get heart disease, nor strokes nor any other meat related diseases. Bears and pigs are similar, they can eat lots and lots of meat and still never get health problems.
Why then do humans often get sick from eating meat? If meat is in fact a natural food of humans it should never have any negative effects on a human body, never. If you are not convinced, then I ask the reader to simply do a search with any search engine you please and find all of the studies that support that the cause of many cardiovascular issues in humans is related to the consumption of meat.
Gout is a serious cardiovascular disease that is caused by excess uric acid in the body. Uric acid is created when our body digests purines. Purines are in almost every food, both animal foods and plant foods. The only thing is that "purines from meat and fish clearly increase our risk of gout, while purines from vegetables fail to change our risk". The quoted part is from http://www.whfoods.com/genpage.php?tname=george&dbid=51 which is scientific factual information about purines.
How is it that our bodies are designed to consume meat (if they are so designed then there should be no problem with eating meat every day or even for every meal) but many people develop gout? No other species of omnivore has ever developed gout or any other food related disease that comes from a food that their body was biologically designed for. I wonder why our designer messed up so badly and made such huge mistakes in our design that we can't even enjoy the food we were designed for?
Oh, I know why, we need to eat meat in moderation. Yes, I have heard that one often, "everything in moderation"...ok yes we need to moderate our food consumption. I'm certain that we as humans are supposed to skip eating every other day so that we can enjoy that delicious animal carcass that we had a couple of days ago. I have never seen a cat or dog take a few days off because it needs to eat in moderation. This is simply craziness, we need to eat every day and the foods that our body was designed to consume will not make us sick, even if we eat it every day and for every meal.
