Does meat rot in your colon?

Okay, this may be a strange subject, but it just happens to be one I’m interested in.

I overheard a conversation about meat taking days to digest in the system and I got to thinking about it so I decided to do a little research.  Based on my own personal observations, I tend to lean toward this way of thinking.

Does Meat Rot In Your Colon? No.

What Does? Beans, Grains, and Vegetables!

I found this information over at Gnolls . org.

Some excerpts from the article:

“On average, a ‘mixed meal’ (including meat) takes 4-5 hours to completely leave the stomach—so we’ve busted yet another part of the myth. (Keep in mind that we have not absorbed any nutrients yet: we’re still breaking everything down.)”

“It turns out that pepsin, trypsin, chymotrypsin, and our other proteases do a fine job of breaking down meat protein, and bile salts and lipase do a fine job of breaking down animal fat. In other words, meat is digested by enzymes produced by our own bodies. The primary reason we need our gut bacteria is to digest the sugars, starches, and fiber—found in grains, beans, and vegetables—that our digestive enzymes can’t break down.”

“In other words, meat doesn’t rot in your colon. GRAINS, BEANS, and VEGETABLES rot in your colon. And that is a fact.…And That’s Why Beans Make You Fart.”

“You can demonstrate the purpose and limits of human digestion with a simple experiment: eat a steak with some whole corn kernels, and see what comes out the other end.

It won’t be the steak.”

I don’t want to post all of it as it is a long article.  Please read the rest of this article here.

The Benefits of Lemon Water

This is something I’ve read about on more than one occasion lately.  Sounds worth a try.

Here’s some information from Look Great-Lose Weight-Save Money.

“Lemon water is truly beneficial in anybeauty care regimen.  Lemon and water both have clarifying actions in your body. Both lemon and water help flush out toxins in your system. 

Although lemons are acidic, they are alkalizing in your body.

Most of the foods we eat are very acidic and too much acid can bring about a barrage of health problems. That’s because your body actually prefers to be alkaline. Instead, most people bombard their systems with too many acidic foods and drinks, which have long lasting detrimental effects. That’s why lemons are so important to consume. They help alkalize your blood and your body thanks you!”

“Lemon water helps clean the toxins out of your body. Your skin can’t look healthy if your body is holding onto toxins! When you get rid of toxic waste in your system, your skin will show it first!”

“Lemon can help relieve many digestion problems when mixed with hot water. These include nausea, heartburn, constipation and parasites. It is even known to help relieve hiccups when consumed as a juice. Lemon juice acts as a liver tonic and helps you digest your food by helping your liver produce more bile. It decreases the amount of phlegm produced by your body. It is also thought to help dissolve gallstones.”

“Because of its high Vitamin C content, it is used to prevent and treat many infections, hasten wound healing, and diminish allergies. Lemon juice also relieves symptoms of asthma, tonsillitis, and sore throats.”

“Lemon is a diuretic. This means that lemon water is especially good for people with urinary tract infections.”

and …

Start your engine everyday by drinking a glass of room temperature, lukewarm to warm, lemon water first thing every morning!
