You make a great point. Our tastebuds are actually (generally speaking), pretty good indicators of the usefulness of a food source. In the wild, humans would naturally enjoy foods high in sugars (fruits), as these are great sources of energy (as well as various vitamins and minerals). We would also be repulsed by rotten or otherwise spoiled foods, and we don't have much natural propensity for killing mammals, birds or amphibians.

Children naturally get distressed at the killing of an animal of any significant size or intelligence, and we know that repeated exposure to this kind of violence is a risk factor for psychopathic tendencies as an adult.

Yes, meat can undoubtedly be a catalyst for better brain development and certainly, we are capable of digesting a variety of animal products, but if left to our own devices, most children would choose not to kill mammals or other intelligent species for food.

Fruit, vegetables, butter, cheese, milk, yogurt and fish are adequate sources of all the nutrients the body needs.

My point being: the dietary tendencies of human children, and our own tastebuds, are a fantastic indicator of our "natural" nutritional needs.

People also enjoy doing drugs and eating junk food, the latter of which is usually characterized by being full of sugar. Pleasure can be an indicator of something being good or harmlessly enjoyable, it can also be a trap. How many fruits do you think people actually ate in nature before we started to make the man made fruits you buy in the grocery store? Name one fucking fruit you've ever eaten in your life that wasn't selectively bred or genetically modified, you could probably only come up with about 2 or 3 if any. This is because natural fruit mostly tastes like shit and has very little nutritional value.

these are great sources of energy (as well as various vitamins and minerals).

You're fucking brainwashed, man. They are full of "energy" because they give you a sugar high, and when you look up the actual vitamins/minerals in most fruit it's almost nothing with the exception of vitamin C and sugar. Again, most of the fruits you think are healthy are actually just man-made sugar bombs that never existed in nature and which our ancestors never ate but were created through thousands of years of selective breeding. Before agriculture, humans rarely ate fruits and almost never ate grain,seeds or vegetables of any kind.

we don't have much natural propensity for killing mammals, birds or amphibians.

Then why do all human cultures hunt and kill animals? And why you leave out the poor reptiles?

Domesticated humans are conditioned to be afraid of blood and killing. Children who haven't been brainwashed will obviously react to it, and might even get sad if they understand death, but they will only believe in morals and such if they are brainwashed. In nature humans accept death as a part of life, all primitive cultures know "the circle" and whatnot. You think exposure to violence is what makes people psychopaths but it's the opposite, it is suppressing their natural instincts that makes them want to kill because they don't hunt, drink blood and eat raw meat like humans are supposed to.

Yes, meat can undoubtedly be a catalyst for better brain development and certainly, we are capable of digesting a variety of animal products, but if left to our own devices, most children would choose not to kill mammals or other intelligent species for food.

"I know animal fat, vitamins and proteins are vital for health but let's all be pussies and destroy ourselves because the poor animals, googoo gaga".

I choose brain development over man made morality.

Fruit, vegetables, butter, cheese, milk, yogurt and fish are adequate sources of all the nutrients the body needs.

You're only alive because of the animal products. There's over fifty nutrient you can't get if you were to eat only plants, and absolutely nothing from plants that we can't get from organs and meat including vitamin C and anti-oxidants which can be found in the eyes, heart and liver of many animals.

My point being: the dietary tendencies of human children, and our own tastebuds, are a fantastic indicator of our "natural" nutritional needs.

That's correct, so why do you think kids almost always hate vegetables and like meat? No human on earth likes grains unless they are highly processed, no human likes vegetables or legumes naturally. If you were to offer a baby a choice between a raw grass-fed steak or a bowl of raw beans, they would ALWAYS choose the steak because raw steak is delicious and healthy and raw beans are poisonous and disgusting.
