Is it possible that in the distant past humans could have been mostly vegan or vegetarian due to a very different Earth climate?

    VITAMIN B-12 does not exist in large enough quantities from dirty produce, thus making ancient vegans impossible.

    Humans put there spin on everything natural and we wonder why we live in a sick society.. not a reference to meat but nature in general.. the world will take a big leap if we were to have a more natural approach, food, energy etc and we have the means to do so, ignorance holds us back.

    Humans are frugivores. Our intestines are not long like herbivores nor do we have more than one stomach and our liver has trouble processing lots of green. We crave fruits; visually, mentally, bodily and energetically. Examples I use to prove we are fruigavore biologically is that we have both Citric acid (citrus) and Malic acid (apples) in our Kreb cycle. Its built in our body direct to break these fruit acids down. Nowhere do we find vegetable elements the same way. Our saliva is alkaline, our teeth shape, size and placement, our mouth is small, our gut, our extensive chewing, our intestines, our jaw shape, mouth shape, jaw strength, Large salutatory gland size, intestine length, having one stomach, colon size, stomach acid strength, pH alkaline of mouth, Pancreas size, low ability to break down Uric acid, low ability to break down cellulose, Intestines 9 times body length, 4­5pH in stomach, Urinary pH alkaline, limbs (prehensile hands), Nails Flattened, sweat glands all over body, digestion time 12­-18 hours, we can only metabolize phytosterols efficiently. visually fruits are appetizing not animals or vegetables, peristalsis requires fiber, craving and ease of obtaining fruit shows that we naturally are designed for fruit as our primary source of sustenance.
    Of course today we can't maybe be 100% only on fruits. I'm eating 90% of fruits and 10% comes from herbs, tonic mushrooms and from chlorella and spirulina. This is because our soil lacks today in some nutrients and we need to get our certain nutrients from powerful herbs . There's a Chinese man who lived to be 256 years. He ate very little and no animal products in he's life. He was a herbalist. And who cares what did the ancient people ate, mostly they were on a survival mode, they ate to survive not to thrive . We see today and it's been scientifically proven that animal products create a disease in our body whether it's cancer or Alzheimer's disease – everybody has a gene for what kind of disease you are likely to get. And we also see that animal protein ages us and so with cooked food . We look like mold when we are at our 70s . There's over 70 years old woman , she's been raw vegan for most of her life and she looks like a million bucks! There are couple other old raw vegans who look fantastic! And you hear that people saying " oh I've reached to over 100 because I ate chocolate or I ate eggs " – that doesn't mean that they are healthy and is it the egg that she ate everyday or maybe it was the blueberries that she ate or .. maybe she was sleeping a lot or drinking water . There's a man who lived to be over 100 years old and he was smoking everyday . – the fact that somebody reaches to live over a hundred doesn't mean that they were healthy . It could have been the genes or many other factors like low stress levels trough out their lives , lots of sleep , or the fruit that they ate everyday.

    we dont have claws, or canine teeth, we cant run down a gazelle.
    meat-eaters rip off huge chunks of meat and swallow without chewing, thier digestive tract is shorter, and ejects the toxins faster.
    they salivate at 3 day old dead carcasses, or sick animals, and their enzymes can handle the bacteria. they cant digest a lot of carbs like us. they can, and often do go several days without a meal
    we are very slow compared to a carnivore, our hands are perfect for gripping and holding fruit, our molars are great for grinding apples and tubers.

    There were abundant plants to forage. we have lost thousands of species.
    think of just corn. there had to be hundreds of steps between the original plant, and what we have. almost none exist except teosinte

    our bodies have been evolving since before we became human, millions of years we were almost completely vegan.

    If hominids had not eaten meat we would not have survived a single winter or been able to migrate to the America's. Besides the fact that a vegan diet does NOT contain all the nutrients that humans need to survive in the first place. I often come across the argument over our teeth when there's a very simple explanation that not only do we not tear meat from the bone we are one of the few species that uses tools to eat and the ONLY species that cooks our food. This makes it easier to chew and digest both meat and vegetables, some we wouldn't be able to eat if we didn't cook it. Even tribal people in the tropics eat meat occasionally, the facts are we are opportunistic omnivores. Listening to the video and looking over the comments many of you are siting things that have not been confirmed whatsoever, it's all a lot if maybes. I find it interesting that only vegans put so much effort into convincing everyone else that their diet is superior and "right" and try to get as many people as possible to follow their diet. I can only guess to help them feel more validated or overcome some sort of insecurity. Fact is life is beautiful and cruel and life feeds on life.

    I MOST DEFINITELY believe humans were vegan in the ancient past, for sure!! It is very true, the digestive system, the teeth characteristics, etc. all points to the fact that humans are natural herbivores…not to mention our natural compassion and gentle naturedness towards animals starting when we are young children and usually only ending after being tainted by our human supremacist society. Also not to mention– the fact we have no natural carnivorous instincts (at least as of now in our present state of evolution) such as to run after animals we see in our backyard, chase them and kill them with our bare hands and eat their dead bodies raw. I am extremely grateful to finally see a spiritual/metaphysical type video actually talking about veganism. You have no idea how much this has given me a feeling of hope today. Have been vegan for the animals for 3 years and know many vegans who have been vegan longer than that–some who have been raised vegan since birth. Even when I was a child I was devestated to find out that 'meat' was actually a dead animal. Of course only being a child, and continuously being told not to think about it or that it was necessary, I continued to eat animals, dairy,eggs, etc., until I saw with my own eyes what happens to animals and snapped out of my willful ignorance and decided to live in alignment with the fact that animals are sentient conscious beings, have the right to their own lives, and that we have no right to enslave them, kill them, etc. and especially when we have no physical necessity to consume them. Also, what you said about the fall of Atlantis affecting the path in which humanity went and how we are now.. is very true to me on an intuitive level, for I've believed I was around during said time for a while now and that I witnessed said fall and how it affected the way in which humans regard animals. Of course, there are other levels to this as well–the negative ETs and interdimensional beings have also played a strong role in the way in which we view and treat animals. Anyways, thank you for sharing this video. !

    See aquatic ape theory. Then decide if you want to be the ape that never developed into Man. Salmon is not a vegetable.

    I remember seeing a video of yours a while back where you were defending the fact that you were eating meat. Glad to see you seem to be heading towards veganism! (?)

    I personally have always battled with eating animals. I have chosen for over a decade not to eat four legged animals. to me they feel to close to me. like pets. I do feel better when I eat less animals. but every now and then I love some ck. or fish. the garden of eden must be in our memories some how for some of us to be on the fence about eating animals. can't imagine the first person who had no choice to go from abundance of fresh produce to having to kill and this having to be a new way for survival. I went to the museum of science in boston mass as a young adult and learned of how at one time we ate just produce and such. it is very intriguing. thanks for being open minded to sharing this Part of history. good food for thought 🙂

    The Annunaki aliens cloned us 400,000 years ago. The egg came from the vegetarian neanderthal/bigfoot and they are meat eating reptilian hominids. So we are clones, came from hospitals, never lived in caves, and the best diet for us is moderation. The 5 longest living peoples in the world all eat meat and fish, starting with Okinawans, and Hunzas, Campos, etc, albeit fish 2-3 times a week and meat rarely.

    I absolutely feel that past humans relied much less on meat than the official story. Eating meat complicates sustenance greatly. Hunting, butchering, cooking, it involves much more work than a non-meat diet. Meat eating was just not expedient.

    I really enjoyed your thoughts on this subject. Just the idea that our earth was once so consistently abundant leaves me feeling spellbound. The garden is a constant source of joy.

    I really believe that humanity were mostly vegan/vegetarian in the past. And then as the fall of consciousness began to spiral downward we started to eat more lower vibrational foods. There is also really amazing evidence of negative extraterrestrial beings coming to some cultures and distorting them with animal husbandry and animal slaughter. Also cannabalism as well. It's really interesting to learn about our ancient past. Have you ever looked into Graham Hancock's work? He does incredible work on our ancient past and putting pieces together… not really about diet, but it all just fits together and makes sense.

    Cool topic! This idea makes a lot of sense to me. There are many stories of man living in paradise followed by "the fall of man". The human body still thrives on the vegan diet today so I think that's evidence for this theory.

    Before the fall of man we never consumed meat . We were corrupted when our world broke , making it easy for others to manipulated mankind . A Completley Traumatized race . Forces on this world never give us the time to heal , they contrive to bombard us with every weapon they have at their disposal. The truth is diabolical…

    "Veganism" was carbon dated back to August 1944 London England coined by Donald Watson branching off from the "Leicester Vegetarian Society". The new Vegan Society, then with six members, held its first meeting in early November 1944 at the Attic Club, 144 High Holborn, London.

    True indeed! No need to eat meat or other animal products when there is an abundance of fruit and vegetables. Eating meat may be a by-product of the ice age's scarcity of food. Here we have Devonian animals and plants that look very tropical… the earth was hugely green with oxygen making us live 900+. LOVELY PLACE, GABRIEL! <3 B-)

    Well I admit that is a possibility, geographic evidence would suggest that Africa was once a lush jungle environment, without the vast deserts it is so commonly known for, and we would have been in a jungle environment anyways before we would have created an advanced civilization. Like all jungle dwelling primates (where all primates come from), we likely started off as insectivores (a vegan diet with insects), and were forced to start consuming animals and more exotic plants like mushrooms when Africa began to dry up.
