I have just come across the most cogent explanation for why our digestive system identifies us as carnivores. It also explains why a high-fat diet is necessary for us. What an herbivore consumes and what ends up in its bloodstream are very different due to the action of cellulose fermenting bacteria in either the foregut or hindgut of the herbivore. What appears to be a high-carb low-fat intake actually ends up being low-carb high-fat nutrition by the time it is fully digested and assimilated. Check out the article and see how that happens: www.second-opinions.co.u
I must say, after reading this, the macronutrient composition of cow milk makes more sense. It likely resembles the end product of cow digestion.
