Genie Singh Posted February 3, 2012 Report Share Posted February 3, 2012 In the animal jungle we have creatures who are meat eaters Carnivore (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Carnivore), eat everything Omnivore (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Omnivore) and Eat plants Herbivore (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Herbivore) Now when we look at saliva, stomach acid and teeth set of all creatures we can decide which one they fit into. Humans can not eat meat naturally if you put a goat and an apple in front of a todler, the todler will play with the goat probably name it and eat the apple. The teeth set of a human are not strong enough to bite through flesh raw, or saliva that of a tigers or stomach acid to digest it. If humans were to eat animals raw they will catch several diseases and die we have some history of attempts and deaths. Now the cellular structure of plants and animals are different that Herbivores have the capacity to digest plants, however humans were clever to invent food technology we cook the meat of creatures until the cell structures are slightly damaged that we can consume the animal. Even with the human body at certain point such as starvation we end up consuming our own fat and muscle fibres a bit like how we consume other animals. We brought various animals into our food technology plot bread them, and eat them. While we can't eat every animal due to dangers such as some fish so people learnt the poisonous parts cut away eat it. Food technology has helped us but has brought us problems from refining certain things. We learn from the human organs such as the appendix humans once used to eat grass. When we look at the pimate family we find the trend in apes who eat fruits and veg. The problem we are facing today is to do with certain geographical locations which have low sunlight intensity such as the uk which was in an ice age when it melted people migrated, so due to that milk from cows are not strong enough, crops and vegetations are low malnourished. Other places which is too hot were we face deserts we find a lack of crops, so people in desperation turned to poultry. Now today some are debating that the origin of various illnesses is to do with meat consumption which is against some of our function. Even carnivores seek fibre from certain plants themselves tigers have to eat grass for fibre. The problems we are facing with poultry industry is we have resulted in producing diseases such as foot and mouth, mad cow disease, bird flu, swine flu, e-coli we created problems with mercury dumping into fish supplies and effected the food web and food chain. We saw a rise in animal cruelty and other issues to the eco system. Also through meat eating humans wiped out the dodo bird, which we replaced with chickens (Gallus gallus domesticus) which came from China approx 6000BC and we bread. Now some philosophers argue that the unnatural meat eating has caused various problems into the human psychology and abnormal violence which some blame has raised violence. It has been quite difficult for people to consume animals slaughtered before themselves. However so meat eating has been found to be addictive due to various chemicals ingested which have a drug like effect. 0 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
