Are Humans Designed To Eat Meat ?

I simply enjoy eating Chicken Curry, Rogan Josh (Mutton), Fish Curry, Sea Food. 5 Years back I turned into Vegetarian for nearly a year but when I went back home for Puja holidays my Mom got furious to know that I turned into Vegetarian she said “Son this is not the time for you to turn into vegetarian, when you get old then you can opt for it but not now” Then I again started enjoying meat and I still love them.

Today I came across a very interesting and important video about the facts of Meat and Human, it is about “Are Human Beings Designed to Eat Meat?”. Although I knew that we Humans are made for eating apples and banana by our mother nature as we do not have any canine teeth and we take 72 hours to digest meat meal but apart from missing canine and super slow digestion of meat I didn’t knew any of the other facts.

The prominent Swedish scientist Karl von Linne states, “Man’s structure, external and internal, compared with that of the other animals, shows that fruit and succulent vegetables constitute his natural food.”

The chart below compares the anatomy of man with that of carnivorous and herbivorous animals.When you look at the comparison between herbivores and humans, our body nature resembles much more closely to herbivores than meat eating animals. Humans are clearly not designed to digest and ingest meat.

1) Claws

2) Skin

3) Teeth

4) Salivary Gland

5) Saliva

6) Digestive Juices

7) Intestine 

Based on a chart by A.D. Andrews, Fit Food for Men, (Chicago: American Hygiene Society, 1970)

If you Watch following Video then there you find more distinguish traits that proves the point that we are designed for eating apples not chicken .
