Raw Fooder since 1978
“Nature has seen fit to provide the ideal food for every creatures on Earth, and all creatures of similar type eat similarly. For example, horses – and all creatures that look like horses (zebras, donkeys and mules) – eat from essentially the same category of foods – those for which their biological systems were designed.
Do not let anyone tell you that humans are the one exception to this rule (called the law of similar) in all of the animal kingdom, for there are no exceptions: Cows eat grass, leopards eat meat, and hummingbirds eat nectar. There is simply no need to complicate this simple program, presented in perfection by nature in thousands of examples.
All of the creatures that are anatomically and physiologically like us known as the anthropoid primates. Gorillas, orangutans, chimpanzees, and bonobos (previously called the pygmy or dwarf chimpanzee) thrive exclusively on a low-fat diet that is predominated by fruits, vegetables, nuts, and seeds.
There is not one example of an animal with anatomy and physiology similar to ours that consumes grain.
99% of their diets consist of plant. Their caloronutrient ratios is: 80/10/10 (80% carbohydrates, 10% protein, 10% fat).
Bonobos, our closest genetic “cousins,” are considered the most intelligent (after humans). They consume mostly fruit and eat about 5% of their calories as vegetable matter. The anthropoids that are farthest from us are mountain and lowland gorillas, rely mostly on vegetation and eat approximately 70% of fruit as they have limited access because their great weight makes it impossible to climb the skinny branches of trees to procure fruit. In zoos, they eat a diet predominated by fruit. Although many people are surprised to hear it, that anthropoid primates in the wild eat a diet that is made up primarily of fruits and vegetables. We have never heard that chimpanzees or orangutans – which are typically five times stronger than humans, pound for pound – need more protein than the amount they get from their plant – based diet.” #rawvegan #rawveganfood #drdouglasgraham #frugivore #fruitarian #vegan #plantbaseddiet #mcm #mancrushmonday #speciesspecific
