Humans have been eating meat for thousands of years. Due to the longevity of this type of diet, the human body has adapted to processing both plants and animals. This is seen in the teeth, facial structure, and digestive system of humans. Meat was easier to chew than plant material and it provided equal if not more calories than plants. This made meat the ideal food to eat millions of years ago. Many of the features that are associated with being human can be contributed to our ancestors eating meat. Humans’ larger brains, smaller guts, bipedalism, and language can all be traced back to our ancestor’s food. Today, meat has many benefits to the body and can usually be easily broken down due to evolution. Eating meat seems to have worked out pretty well for our ancestors, why stop now?
