The jaw, the teeth, the intestines, optimal factors for proper nutrition of humans point to the fact that we should have some GOOD source of protein such as fish, seafood, and/or lean meat. In addition, more that 90 percent of ALL people who have lived to 100 were omnivores. Check out Okinowa, Japan and how many centarians they have and what they eat and drink.
The moderate meat is good for iron, protein, and energy. Not to mention it tastes good.
Those centurians live long because they have a diet lower on meat, dairy, and other things. There is a man in Nigeria who is 150 and he is a strict vegan and messes with herbs. Only reason I think he'll die is if he decides too. Those studies don't usually include the tribal areas where many elders are centurians. Those studies be biased.
The protein from meat ain't even organic protein. This protein has been known to increase cancer growth in humans and other animals. There is protein in plenty of plants and seaweeds like spirulina, kelp, etc. I even heard that when food is cooked, it denatures the protein so in truth meat doesn't have real usable protein. To even get a complete protein you would have to eat the whole animal from the legs to the arms to the instestines, to the head, etc raw! No complete protein is in one area of the body from my research.
Of course iron is in green leafy vegetables and plenty of energy comes from the sugars in fruits. Fruits give you a lot of energy.
Our new health scholars like Jewel Pookrum, Llaila Afrika, Dr. Sebi and others all say the bodies anatomy is naturally vegeterian. Just my opinion though.
