While perusing the blogosphere (with the help of Google Alerts) I came across a great blog entry by a guy named Jeff Erno. In it, he theorizes on why people should eat animals rather than plants. A lot of this theory stems from the fact that animals are simply a safer food to eat.
He explains, “If you are an animal then evasion seems a great way to avoid predation. Run faster. Climb higher. Fly…” These are things that plants simply cannot do. Instead, for the most part, plants became toxic or poisonous to avoid predation.
There are exceptions to every rule, but who really wants to be eating from a food group in which most of the relatives are trying to kill you?
