They Ignored This Back in 1940, Too!

Dr. Daniel Munro, M.D. was an early proponent of the high protein diet and he wrote about it in a book.

He stated in his book “Man alive, you’re half dead” back in 1940, that “herbivorous animals, such as the cow or sheep, eating only vegetable food, have specialized digestion. They are equipped to eat large quantities of food in proportion to their size, COMPARED TO HUMANS. They all first alkalize their food by much chewing (their saliva being alkali), and they all RE-CHEW THEIR FOOD for a long time (chewing the cud). They all have a large sack or pouch, where man has a tiny appendix.

“Man, with his small appendix, seems plainly in the class of meat-eating animals, rather than the herbivorous animals with their large pouches. WE CANNOT CHEW OUR CUD.

“Physiology of digestion was ignored. Let’s begin to think about it now…”

This was back in 1940, folks! Unfortunately, barely anyone took the time to think about this. Even back in 1940 it was not politically correct to extol the virtues of red meat. We can trace the unfortunate birth of politically correct nutritional science to this period, and widespread obesity and bad health have been the result – a nation bursting at the seams, overweight, exhausted, and susceptible to a myriad of illnesses.

Even now people try to “justify” vegetarianism by repeating the myth that our digestive tract is more like a sheep’s than a wolf’s. This is simply not true. For an excellent comparison of the carnivore, vs. herbivore, vs. man, take a look at this table: http://scienceofhealthindex.com/images/herbivorecarnivorechart.jpg
