food content, the quite famous one, Handbook # 8 , I think it is.
I contacted the USDA several months ago and asked if they had any sources
that listed vitamin and mineral content of food in the '30's or '40's and
now. They asked why I wanted to know and transferred me several times
(12-15 times, I'd have to check my notes to be sure) to several different
departments. Finally, I was given to a woman who didn't identify herself,
was extremely rude, and told me that there is absolutely no information
available that would suggest that the vitamin and mineral content in our
food supply is lessening, that it is nothing more than a myth.
As far as God not intending humans to eat meat, here are my thoughts:
I read the Biblical quotes that Bargyla provided, and as is quite often the
case with anything, I can see several different interpretations to them.
When I look at the human body, specifically the dental structure and
digestive system, I believe that our Creator had more in mind for us than a
vegan diet. There's only one way that we will find out what our Creator
meant for us to feast upon, and I'm guessing that when it's my turn to meet
my Maker, I'll have other things on my mind besides asking Him if I was
supposed to eat meat or only veggies.
