Hamburger! MMMMMMMM! Good. 26 different forms of parasites in the meat alone, benign to humans, much of the very protein made up from around 100 forms of insects the cow consumes while browsing, not to mention around 1500 different forms of bacteria in the warm, raw meat along with the minute germs in the blood. * Delicious!*
Same with rich, scrumptious pork! Only more so because basic pigs eat virtually anything which will not eat them first, even some types of poisonous snakes.
Chicken! Even better. Now enriched with ecoli and staph due to not only being fed their own feces, which is gathered and a portion recycled into their food, but due to sloppy processing at the meat plants. At least 4 different forms of potentially dangerous fungus and bacteria resides in and on raw chicken. Deep fry mine please! I like my fungus crispy.
Humans are the top predators of the Earth, meaning we are omnivores. We eat anything which will not eat us first, including certain forms of dirt. We consume readily various insects, assorted forms of fungus, mold, bacteria and organic poisons with little harm.
Chitosin – the new fat absorber is insect exoskeletons, but we also consume insect parts in all prepared foods. We consume mushrooms, use certain forms of mold to make wine, beer, yogurt and buttermilk with. Mold makes sourdough, and a form is used to breakdown and flavorise expensive meats. Bacteria and mold age and flavor cheeses – though I’m surprised anyone even tried to eat the first limburger. Any alcohol product is an organic poison. We consume gallons of milk and that phlegm buildup afterwards is a very mild allergic reaction to the stuff.
We consume dirt in oysters, clams, some root vegetables and some leafy greens.
In hard times we have eaten sawdust. Our guts are teeming with nasty bacteria, without which we could not digest our foods. Our blood swarms with hundreds of pathogens, to which we have an immunity. A human bite is second only in filth to that of the Komodo Dragon. We excrete solid waste alive with more bacteria than any herbivore. We void liquid that is part water and part poison. Our mouths secrete a caustic organic solvent. Our blood is so rich that it makes an excellent fertilizer. We hold a quantity of major caustic acid in our stomach, designed to rip apart virtually anything organic that touches it.
Those hot peppers you ate in Mexico that seemed to light you up going in and coming out are not as dangerous as the acid in your stomach that you make yourself.
A gland on our liver squirts a concentrated, greasy solution of poisons into our waste products in our intestines, giving them the brown color. This stuff is pure, concentrated toxin! Our livers store up a great supply of a natural chemical, which if taken in a massive dose, will kill one quickly, but without which we die.
We eat quantities of a natural acid for our health. (Vitamin C.) The seeds of some of the fruits we eat have to protect themselves with a jell in order to pass through our systems, unharmed, but most do not make it.
We even eat that which will readily eat us.
Nature may be gross, but we are the ultimate product of nature. We are the Omnivores!
To a science fiction writer, we meet the specifications for a nearly invulnerable, hideous monster.
