Now what is that called, again, when food is being ‘digested’ by bacteria…? That is why beans and starches make you fart, but meat doesn’t: they’re rotting in your colon, and the products of bacterial decomposition include methane and carbon dioxide gases.Here’s a list of flatulence-causing foods, and here’s another: A partial inventory: “Beans, lentils, dairy products, onions, garlic, scallions, leeks, turnips, rutabagas, radishes, sweet potatoes, potatoes, cashews, Jerusalem artichokes, oats, wheat, and yeast in breads.(Keep in mind that we have not absorbed any nutrients yet: we’re still breaking everything down.) Eventually our pyloric valve opens, and our stomach releases the chyme, bit by bit, into our small intestine—where a collection of salts and enzymes goes to work.Bile emulsifies fats and helps neutralize stomach acid; lipase breaks down fats; trypsin and chymotrypsin break down proteins; and enzymes like amylase, maltase, sucrase, and (in the lactose-tolerant) lactase break down starches and some sugars.Because of the shortness of my bowel, it only took about twenty minutes for my stomach to empty into the ostomy.Better than two hours later, there were no signs of any meat chunks.Over time, fat would coagulate on the side walls of the ostomy bag, but never were there any solid pieces observed.” (Click for full article: Can Humans Digest Meat?

Rephrased less diplomatically: You’re not eating plants: you’re eating BACTERIA POOP. Contribution of the microflora to proteolysis in the human large intestine. “In the stomach and the proximal small bowel, the microorganisms found as normal flora are a reflection of the oral flora.And rabbits run their food through twice: they in order to get more food value out of the plant matter they eat.(For a more in-depth explanation of herbivore digestion, with lots of pictures, click here for an informative presentation (pdf) from the University of Alberta’s Department of Agriculture.) Humans, in contrast, don’t have gut bacteria that can digest cellulose.In the stomach, pepsin (another enzyme) breaks down proteins, and strong hydrochloric acid (p H 1.5-3, average of 2…this is why it stings when you vomit) further dissolves everything.The resulting acidic slurry is called ‘chyme’—and right away we can see that the “meat rots in your stomach” theory is baloney.
