If you were a natural meat eater then you would be able to chase an animal down, overpower it and then kill it by biting, bleeding, suffocating and clawing it to death. After you kill it, then you would began to immediately eat it on the spot without cleaning it. You would eat the fur, scales, skin, flesh, diseased flesh, intestines with feces, liver, lungs, veins, arteries, eyes, sexual organs, fetus, anus, feet, tail, bones, brain, blood, etc.
You would either chase away, kill or yield to other natural meat eaters that are more powerful than you, as it is very important to know the pecking order and your limitations. If you find a rotting carcass in the wild or on the road, you would began to eat it on the spot or drag it to a safe place to eat-also without cleaning. I doubt if you can find a human meat eater that does this and if by chance one such person is found, then what kind of health condition is he or she is in?
If you use the argument that your ancient ancestors ate meat so we should eat meat as well, just look at the ingredient listed in processed meats like Chicken McNuggets, Spam, Fish Sticks, Chicken Fingers, etc. and ask yourself if this is what your ancient ancestors were eating or if the meat that we are eating today would have killed our ancient ancestors of the past and will it kill us in the future if we continue eating it? Even if you only buy unprocessed meats you need to realize that they came from a factory farm as almost all meat does these days.
These are not natural meats either because the animals in factory farms are fed a highly unnatural diet (some grazing animals are even fed other animals, forcing them to become carnivores), are raised in a totally unnatural environment, are given growth hormones to grow unnaturally big and fast. They are so unhealthy that they have to be given antibiotics all throughout their life span in order to keep them from dieing before this unhealthy and diseased ridden creature can reach the age of slaughter. Another sign that we are not natural meat eaters is when we are told that for safety purposes we need to cook any meat that we eat in order to kill any parasites and bacteria that could be living inside of it.
Natural meat eaters don't have to worry about worms, parasites and bacteria as they can eat these without worry as long as they clean themselves afterwards. Notice how a cat licks or clean itself after eating wild or domestic foods provided to it, especially raw meats. If humans have to worry about parasites and bacteria that could harm or even kill them -unless they kill the parasites, bacteria, etc. first by cooking them, then that should be a strong sign that we weren't meant to eat meat. The reason that animals can eat this type of diet is because their stomach acid is more than 10 times higher than ours and can easily handle things that could be deadly to us.
If the modern meat eater put some raw beef, fish, chicken, or pork in his or her mouth, his natural instincts would more than likely be to quickly spit it out and then spend the next fifteen minutes rinsing his mouth out with mouthwash to try to remove the taste, another sign that he, she, they are not natural meat eaters. Likewise, If the graphic images from slaughterhouse videos makes you lose your appetite then you still aren't a natural meat eater.
Natural meat eaters will salivate at the sight or smell of dead animals and not only would the footage from slaughterhouses not make us sick to our stomachs, it would be similar to watching a Burger King or McDonald's commercial. Don't even think of calling a slaughterhouse and asking them for permission to enter the slaughterhouse with a digital or video camera. You will be told NO period, because what goes on in those slaughterhouses must be kept from their customer's eyes since their main goal is to continue making fistfuls of money from the American consumer. One of the most obvious signs that we are not natural meat eaters is the fact that almost everyone who currently eats meat would probably be a vegetarian if were the only ones having to do the killing, cleaning and cooking as this is very time and energy consuming, don't you think?
So every meat eater and food shopper in general is also paying for product convenience. For example, you buy a can or jar of ready to eat peanuts so that you would not need to clean and shell the peanuts before you eat them. You buy roasted peanuts because you either don't want to roast them yourself or you don't have the time to do the roasting. We all should know that there is an epidemic of obesity and heart disease- which includes hypertension, atherosclerosis, arteriosclerosis and high cholesterol among many other things in the United States and most industrial countries of the world. Many organizations are trying to bring awareness to this situation. Some restaurants are attempting to make changes in their menus, no matter how small. Many doctors are changing their ways of treating patients. And while all of this is great, not enough of us are listening to, hearing or heeding those messages.
