have we evolved to become fruit eaters?
or did we lose our way somewhere along the course of history?
if we are designed to eat only fruit why did humanity add animals to the dinner plate?
was it related to the ice age and having no access to sufficient fruit?
did a band of people leave the tropics out of adventurous curiousity, eat meat out of necessity, become aggressive and return to the tropics to enslave the peaceful fruit eaters thereby forever changing the human diet?
there is no question about the snowballing of hard scientific evidence proving we are in fact frugivores. It cannot be long before the power of mass communication changes the way the entire world eats.
what is the endgame? will we all move back to the tropics and live off fruit?
imagine the entire human population dropping everything they are doing and travelling to the nearest tropical climate all on the same day.
my head is going to explode if i think about it anymore...
someone else pick up the conversation :)
p.s. i have a plane ticket to nicaragua for april 30th. see you all in paradise.
my mother used to say the exact same thing about the pineapple. that and 'i'd end up wasting too much'.
i think we need to start a therapy group. lol.
Evolution is an imperfect art form although the theories are interesting to study.
What counts is what is important today, and many studies have proven that a low fat diet low protein diets high in fruits and veggies are optimal for human health.
One problem with the human population today is that when we did start eating high animal based diets, we messed up our hormones by ingesting their hormones. On top of that, a high fat diet ensured that high hormone levels circulated in the blood. Therefore, the human sex drive became out of control resulting in our high numbers.
Of course, it is inconceivable that the tropics could support 7 billion people. But we can start making small improvements with what we have to work with.
Many of us can start at home. Many areas of the United States for example are quite temperate and can support orchard based crops and even things like figs and dates could possibly be grown in areas like Missiouri, Arkansas, and Texas.
We turn cattle lots into vegan lots, and short term that might include growing dry crops like grains and beans. Long term, we can plant more orchard and permaculture based crops.
We can practice responsible short term procreation with one or less children per person until we get things back in control again.
Just some thoughts. Peace, PK
