3. The Human Body is Not Designed to Eat Animal Protein

You might have heard vegans saying that humans are herbivores by nature, and that our bodies have an extremely difficult time while digesting animal protein. This is an outright lie. Humans have been eating animal meat for millions of years. Our bodies are perfectly capable of making full use of the nutrients in animal protein.

If anything, facts show that the human digestive system is nothing like herbivores. We have short colons and very long yet small intestines with lots of hydrochloric acid in our stomachs to break down animal meat. The different lengths of our digestive systems are in the middle between the lengths of herbivores and carnivores, which means that we are naturally designed to be omnivores.
