Should Humans Be Carnivores?

Most humans are omnivores, incorporating both meats and plants into an everyday diet.

Some diets, like the paleo diet, are focused on eating significant amounts of meat and eliminating processed foods.

Unfortunately, all calories (and meat choices) are not created equal.

For example, indulging in a cheeseburger is not the same as eating grilled chicken. Yes, they are both meats, but the cheeseburger is unhealthier than the chicken. In fact, many doctors suggest limiting your red meat consumption due to risk of heart disease.

This may have you wondering: should humans be carnivores?

Gary L. Clayman, DMD, MD, FACS, shares his personal opinion on whether or not humans should be carnivores.
