Why Animal Protein Is Bad

Human beings are not carvivorous animals; not like lions or wolves or the cat who is curled up on your couch.

Your cat can eat animal protein because her stomach produces 20 times as much hydrochloric acid as yours does. Most of her digestion takes place in her stomach, whereas most of your digestion takes place in your intestinal tract.

That acid-bath in her stomach is so powerful that it can break down not only animal protein, but also bones and ligaments. Your cat can eat the whole mouse, because her stomach can digest its entire body. No parasites can survive the immersion in a carnivorous animal's stomach.

Your cat's intestinal tract is about 3 times as long as her body. That's true for all carnivorous animals. The food is almost completely digested in her stomach, and the remainder, the poop, is sent out of her body very quickly.

Whereas you and I have intestinal tracts that are 32 feet long. Look down at your lower abdomen, and picture a long garden hose, folded and refolded in perfect order. If I'm in good health, my long intestine is about the same diameter in width as my big toe. But someone who isn't healthy can have 32 feet of intestines that are anywhere from 3 to 10 inches in diameter. You don't have to imagine what someone would look like with 32 ft of intestines inside them that were 8 inches in diameter. You just need to look around you at your fellow Americans; tens of millions of people who are obese beyond comprehension.

So our stomachs are not able to completely digest animal protein. Chunks of undigested meat, therefore, pass into your long intestinal tract. And with that undigested meat, goes all the parasties and flukes that our stomach-acids were not strong enough to kill.

Your cat will quickly expel any undigested foods. But in humans, that putrified and decaying meat may stay inside you for anywhere from 20 to 48 hours. And if you're not healthy, it can take much longer.

The decaying meat produces poisons like cadaverine and putrescine, that become pathogens and toxins within the human body. And since your long, long intestine is your major organ of digestion, some of those toxins will be absorbed by the body.

Meat is the dead flesh of some animal. You've seen an animal dead on the road. It doesn't look pink and tasty. And neither would your supermarket steak if the meat processor didn't treat the dead flesh with sodium nitrates and sodium nitrites to make it look pink, instead of its natural sickly, gray-green color. Those color additives are cancer-causers in human beings; just two of a vast number of toxic chemicals that are found in meat.

The meat is also full of antibiotics, sedatives, growth hormones, and chemical feed mixtures. Most of the antibiotics produced in the USA go into the feedstuff of animals. Why? To keep them alive in the absolutely horrendous conditions in which they live their short, stunted lives. When you eat their "pink" flesh, those chemicals go into you. The antibiotics kill off most or all of the good bacteria in your long intestinal tract. That's why meat-eaters are usually sick with one or more illnesses and degenerative conditions.

The undigested meat isn't always expelled by the body. Instead, the putrifying flesh becomes an inner lining for the long instestinal tract -- swelling its normal diameter from, say, 1 inch, to as big as 10 inches. Day after day, year after year, decade after decade, that undigested flesh becomes a black, rubbery substance known as mucoid plaque. It lines the intestines like wallboard, and prevents normal digestion. An obscenely obese person may have only a tiny channel or tunnel through their enormously compacted intestine.

Final thought: meat-eaters are also ingesting all of the negative energy that accumulated in the animal during its short, horrific life; all of the fear, anger, hatred, dread, and anxiety that were stored in the cells of the animal. When you eat that "pink" flesh, you take in not only the toxic chemicals, but all that negative energy. It's not a very pleasant thought.

If anything I said resonated with you, I hope you'll consider giving up animal protein. Everything else aside, most of us need much less protein that we eat every day. Too much protein causes a vast number of problems.

Trust your intuition!

A cup of lentil or mung bean sprouts contains 10 grams of protein. Green-leaf vegetables contain completely usable protein, with all the needed amino acids. The world's biggest and strongest animals -- gorillas, elephants, hippos, giraffes, and rhinos -- all build their tremendously strong bodies with vegetable protein.

Yes, it's very easy to eat WAY too much animal protein. But since meat contains 5 to 10 times the amount of protein (compared to veggies), it's almost impossible to stuff yourself with too much vegetable protein.

And you asked if veggie protein rots in the intestines: The answer is "no." Your body knows how to completely digest vegetable protein. Your stomach and intestine do that job quickly. What isn't used, gets sent OUT of your body ASAP. Vegetarians don't have nasty smelling poop. Why? Because the waste hasn't been inside your body long enough to get nasty. It's that simple. The same rule applies to escaped gas. If a vegetarian emits gas, you may hear it, but chances
are you won't smell anything. At least that's the way I am after eating mostly living foods for the last 28 years.

Acording to Andreas Moritz , in his wonderful book, THE KEY TO HEALTH AND REJUVENATION (the new 2005 edition has been retitled TIMELESS SECRETS OF HEALTH AND REJUVENATION), "the blood's tendency towards clotting, which is considered the greatest risk for suffering a heart attack or stroke, stems almost exclusively from the saturation of the blood with protein. Fats, on the other hand, have no blood-clotting ability." (p.142) That's why heart attacks are common among meat eaters, and rare among vegetarians and gorillas and rhinos.

I hope that answers some of your questions. Trust your deep intuition when it comes to making important choices. The Deva of your Soul will never mislead you.
