Staying Vegetarian

The human body is designed to stay vegetarian – our nails are not long enough to tear open animal hides; we do not have naturally sharp front teeth to tear meat; our mouth has alkaline saliva with an enzyme called ptyalin to pre-digest grains; stomach acids in humans are too weak to digest meat properly; and our intestines are far too long to allow early detoxing upon eating meat. It is not crucial to turn vegetarian in order to stay flexible; just being aware of the difference is yogic enough.
