Just because we can eat meat, doesn’t mean that we’re supposed to. When you look more closely at our anatomy and biology and compare it to that of obligate omnivores you’ll notice some very obvious differences.
Obligate omnivores are designed to kill, rip apart and digest raw flesh using only their teeth, and they’re very good at it. Not only are humans physically incapable of doing this, but it would also make us extremely ill in the process. By comparison, we thrive on a plant-based diet including a mix of fruits, vegetables, nuts, legumes and whole grains. We are not obligate omnivores so we don’t need to eat animals.
