Are we meant to eat plants?
🍒Berries and twigs have always been around. Maybe even mushrooms.
❓So are we supposed to eat plants?
There are about 390,000+ plants in the world.
🔎Yet we eat about 200 different plants.
❌As I grew up in the city, I was taught at a young age never to eat mushrooms or wild berries off a random bush.
⚠️There are more plants that are dangerous than there are safe plants for consumption.
❓So why do we think plants are the most beneficial for health?
🥩Some plants can have benefits (via hormesis) but most plants were consumed because of limited access to meats.
📚Dr. Miki Ben-Dor is a paleoanthropologist that has researched and published his findings on diet during all of human evolution.
💡And his findings suggest that plants are not optimal or ideal for optimal human health.
🍇Even the fruits in the grocery store today are not what nature intended.
