CARNIVORE MAN?
by Jenny Moxham

We don't have strong

Digestive juice,

Short gut, sharp fangs

Or claws,

So why do people

Think we're meant to

Eat like carnivores.


With weaker 'juice'

And lengthy gut,

Short teeth and

Sliding jaw,

Man's diet clearly

Should be more

Like ape and herbivore.

Anatomy of a carnivore: Stomach that secretes hydrochloric acid to break down protein and kill bacteria found in decaying flesh; short and simple large intestine for fast elimination; long, sharp, curved canines for stabbing, tearing and killing prey; wide mouth and powerful jaws for seizing and dismembering prey; sharp claws.
