I think I'll pass on that raw T-bone

People can eat a a vegan or almost entirely vegan diet and live quite healthily.  Unlike you, most don't know what they are doing and believe that being a healthy vegan just means eliminating meat.  Eating almost entirely raw vegan is particularly tricky, since our digestive systems are not set up to handle grains and many other forms of fruits and vegetables without some kind of preparation.  Most often, such preparation involves heat or fermentation.

On the other hand, people COULD eat considerable raw meat and live healthily too.  But most wouldn't because, once again, they would have no idea what they were doing.  Eating only raw meat is in many instances even more tricky than eating only raw veggies and fruits, because, once again, our digestive systems are simply not set up to efficiently get nutrition from tearing off and wolfing down most common meats (with Sushi/seafood being a notable exception).  If not cooked, meat must be somehow prepared and tenderized (such as curing. aging, marinating, pulverizing), in order for our digestive systems to properly extract all the nutrients.

Unlike what some would have us believe, we have NOT evolved as raw eaters of most forms of meat.   Even the most conservative estimates tell us that man has been altering meat and other foods with heat (fire) for at least 200,000 years.  Some estimates have us doing so as far back as 1.6 million years.  I don't think evolution/adaption is so slow that our needs and habits should be the same as 200,000 years ago.  I think we have had plenty of time to adapt to altering our foods with heat (cooking in other words) as modern man has been doing for eons now. I would also point out that our teeth are not the teeth of carnivores and are ill prepared for ripping and chewing raw meat.

Like you, I find the idea of eating most meat raw to be a repulsive chore - and, other than fish, not one I am inclined to perform.  So pass me the sushi, perhaps a bit of wild/organic meat and some raw/steamed veggies and I will be just fine, thank you very much.
