Andre said:[omnivores] have the same characteristics as carnivores... [consuming meat is] not healthy or beneficial to human beings...We are primates...
Slowwwww down. That's way too much kool aide for one gulp. I spent about three years as a vegan and did a good bit of reading into those types of assertions. Do most Westerners eat too much meat? Without a doubt. We eat too much meat. That doesn't mean we're not omnivores, that we shouldn't eat meat or that meat has not been beneficial to human beings. Omnivores do not have identical characteristics to carnivores and primates don't eat only vegetation. This article is a good place to start:
