Human GI Tract Designed for a Plant-Food Diet

Human GI Tract Designed for a Plant-Food Diet
Does human anatomy and physiology reveal which type of diet we should consume? According to Dr. Milton Mills, "While most humans are clearly 'behavioral' omnivores, the question still remains as to whether humans are anatomically suited for a diet that includes animal as well as plant foods." Dr. Mills goes on to say, "A better...
