Very interesting! It's interesting to note that the Biblical story of Adam and Eve had them created as vegans while living in the Garden of Eden, but when they 'Fell' and were expelled they then became omnivores.

We saw an undercover video some 20 years ago, quite by accident, which showed the terrible cruelty and suffering of pigs, cows and chickens in slaughter houses. It was horrific and sickening. We stopped eating animals right then and there and are nearly vegans, but not 100% yet. Soon, hopefully.

We thought eating eggs and dairy was not so bad until we discovered that all little boy chicks are unwanted at the factory egg farms especially and are either dumped alive into grinders to make pet food or are dumped in large plastic bags where the ones who aren't crushed on the bottom are suffocated.

And everyone know what happens to the little boy calves that don't give milk on dairy farms - they're treated cruelly, kept in tiny boxes so their muscles don't develop and then are literally thrown and kicked around the selling floors because they can't stand up or walk so they can be then hauled off to be killed for veal. (How any decent human being can eat this evil 'meat' is unbelievable.)

Go Vegan and get healthy and leaner and stop the horrific suffering of other sentient beings, who have just as much right to life as we do.

Thanks Giana

A lot of the differences shown are differences of Primates vs. family Carnivora. I once even saw a deer eating at the high tide line, and went over to discover it had been eating a dead fish - it is possible that it was ingesting the concentration of salt, as grazing herbivores need extra not uptaken by grasses and some other browse or plants.

Our close relatives the Chimpanzee, has been shown to be carnivorous and cannibalistic.

One healthy member of the Carnivora, the Coyote, often eats large amounts of vegetables, even for over a month or months at a time in deserts.

I note in passing that the wolf cannot tolerate dog food, made with vegetable ingredients - their intolerance is much a failure of failure to digest these parts of food. The domestic dog, however is now adapted - and most breeds (i don't know all) have smooth tongues, unlike the wonderfully coarse cleaner of the wolf.

I prefer the carrion smell, and the various fur and glandular smells of the wolf who adopted me to ANY products made to change human smells - these actually turn my stomach. But, then i'm neither female nor i suppose typical. But since I am NORMAL(!) I feel that smell preferences in the video are not completely accurate but individual/cultural.

The Maasai, drink blood mixed with milk for their main nutrition.
Although I share some food with this wolf, I have found that fruit is the highest quantity of a healthy human diet in some tropical countries, paralleling my own taste for eating massive quantities of mangoes, oranges, apples, figs, huckleberries, blackberries, melons, etc.

The video is not perfectly accurate due to the lacks mentioned, and I invite everyone to

There are some people who insist that humans are meant to eat meat, as a way to justify the cruelty of the livestock industry. Humans are capable of eating meat, but as the video shows, we really are more suited to a plant based diet.

I like this video but it shows humans as we are at present in modern, western societies. On an evolutionary timetable human beings went through a very long hunting and gathering phase where scarvening meat or hungting formed a major part of the diet. About 8-10,000 yrs. ago early forms of agriculture developed and took off and led to massive population growth because of the increase in calories. Modern hunter gatherers still practice the same kind of diet, high in meat, with wild plants, berries and other vegetation when available and they are very healthy and not overweight. Chimps and many other animals that were believed to be wholly vegetarian have proven to be carnivorous and hunt monkeys. I have witnessed a squirel eating the brains of a sparrow that bonked into a tree and fell onto our lawn. It was quite a shock. I believe that we are omnivores but that we can choose to amend our diets because of ethical reasons.

Suzanne's comment makes a lot of sense. I feel for those who still eat meat it should be limited in quantity and larger amounts of our foods in non meats. I also feel that these factory farms need to cease and that for those who still want a smaller amount of meat in their diets that the animals be raised in a healthy and humane way, eating the foods they are meant to eat, roaming outside in the sunshine. That fish be plentiful and free to swim in the rivers and oceans not penned up. We need to stop using so much pesticides which are adding toxins to our soils and food, the run off going into our rivers is hurting the fish and the bees are also being affected. We need dramatic changes to a healthier way of eating.
