To Our Roots
"Everything about us, as a species, says herbivore loud and clear: from our teeth, jaw and saliva down to our stomach acid and through our intestines. Herbivore, herbivore, herbivore! Heck, just trying to eat like any true carnivore - or even an omnivore - would probably have us in a hospital before the day was out."

Returning to Our Roots: Research Supports a Plant-Based Diet
- from Veggies in Motion News: www.detroitmeatout.org
Obesity, heart disease, stroke, and most cancers are all on the rise in the United States and are
clearly related to diet. With our continued failing health, as a society, maybe it's time to look at our behavior for
some important answers.
Think back to the last time you saw another human run down a squirrel or rabbit; jump on its back and
sink her teeth into its neck and crush its larynx. Maybe you just missed those super-human feats of athleticism and
caught the tail end of the chase when she tore through the tendons and gulped down mouthfuls of bloody flesh. Perhaps you
remember the swimmer who flashed through the water and, with mouth gaping, swallowed a frightened fish whole? Assuming
you missed that bit of fantasy as well, how about the man perched at the top of a small waterfall catching a salmon in
his mouth and devouring it?
No, you have never seen humans perform any of these common events in nature and you never will. True
carnivores are physiologically very different from us, yet we continually try to eat their diet.
We aren't fleet of foot, with a snout full of sharp teeth, or with fins and tails. Nature, in its
wisdom, gave us a large brain and it's time we started using it.
Everything about us, as a species, says herbivore loud and clear: from our teeth, jaw and saliva
down to our stomach acid and through our intestines. Herbivore, herbivore, herbivore! Heck, just trying to eat like any
true carnivore - or even an omnivore - would probably have us in a hospital before the day was out.
Scientific findings fully support our herbivorous ways. Day after day, reputable research comes out
supporting a plant-based diet. If you want the utterly convincing and captivating details, just check out the book The China Study and all doubts will be dispelled.
Dr. T. Colin Campbell, PhD of Cornell University, the author, has overseen one of the largest and longest studies on
diet and disease in the entire world.
His work is so impeccable that the prestigious Oxford University in England has signed on to his
research. This book could change the nutritional landscape in America for years to come - if the public ever becomes
aware of its truths. The China Study repeatedly
reveals that animal protein, saturated fat and cholesterol cause disease in humans; while fiber, antioxidants and
phytonutrients heal our bodies!
What you eat will likely determine the sickness and premature death you will suffer or the health and
longevity you could enjoy. The choice is yours - but to feel alive and thrive you must eat WHOLE, ORGANIC, UNPROCESSED
Apply the simple, logical principles in this book to your own life and you can STOP AND REVERSE the
many disease processes ongoing in your body today. This is NOT sensationalism, but has been documented in many, many
studies. Do yourself and your family a favor and read The
China Study. You will be a changed person before you reach the end!
If you are concerned about obesity, heart disease, cancer, stroke and many other diet-related
conditions, take steps today to explore a plant-based diet through books, classes, events and local vegetarian/vegan
groups. In returning to our roots as herbivores, not only do we resume our intended place in nature, but we hold the
scientifically proven key to long-term human health.
