There is way too much nonsense going around in nutrition.
People don’t seem to agree on anything and trying to make sense of it can be overwhelming.
However… eating healthy does NOT have to be complicated if you keep a few things in mind.
Here are 15 things that everyone needs to know about nutrition.
1. Meat Does Not Rot in Your Colon
One of the most ridiculous myths about meat, is that it rots in your colon.
This is absolute nonsense, kept alive by people who want to scare others away from eating meat.
The truth is that meat gets broken down by stomach acid and enzymes, then absorbed, mostly as amino acids and fatty acids.
The human digestive system is well equipped for meat consumption and our bodies make full use of the proteins, fats, vitamins and minerals found in meat.
If you want to know what really rots in your colon, then it is indigestible plant matter, also known as fiber.
This is actually a good thing… the friendly bacteria in the intestine digest the fiber and turn it into short-chain fatty acids that have important benefits for health (1).
