meat rots in your stomach

    So... my coworker is convinced that one when eats red meat your body doesn't digest it, rather it rots in your stomach and that's how the body breaks it down. apparently some doctor on Oprah said this is true so she's convinced of it.

    Someone tell me if this is true or not please as I simply can't believe humans lack the enzymes to digest meat properly!

    Is it that hack doctor that always shows up on Oprah in his scrubs as if to say "look I'm a doctor! And I'm a celebrity too! Check my shoes, I'm edgy!"

    It depends how you define rot.

    1. to undergo decomposition; decay.
    2. to deteriorate, disintegrate, fall, or become weak due to decay (often fol. by away, from, off, etc.).

    in that sense, everything you eat rots inside you by definition.

    I know if I eat pork its out of me long before it has a chance to "rot" per say.

    according to harvey diamond of "fit for life" fame, this occurs when you eat a protein at the same time as a carbohydrate; the different enzymes needed to digest the protein and the carbohydrate neutralize one another (something to do with pH maybe, i dunno i read that book years ago) and then everything in your stomach just rots.

    its true. red meat cannot digest in your body...instead it sits and decomposes over the course of 3 days...then is released...most people that eat red meat smell really bad during that period...its gross...comes through their skin... ugh!

    [geminigirl] It doesn't rot as much as you will in hell for eating it in the first place [/geminigirl]

    LOL @ Skipper!!!

    There are not enough 'solid mass in mah belly' horror stories in the universe that would make me give up bacon or steak.

    Well I don't know about the rotting, but it definitely ISN'T the dumbest shit ever. In fact, eating starch with meat IS a bad thing to do (sucks for us Westerners who are hooked on bangers and mash, steak and potatoes, burgers and fries).

    Was looking for a reference via google but couldn't, maybe someone could help out here?

    Great use of tact too janiecakes - you can disagree without bein a jerk - but I guess I'm forgetting this is the internet, where people will talk to others in ways they would never attempt in person...;)

    People who believe this shit are the same people who believe in detoxifying, regular enemas, eating only vegetables and get mystery illnesses in thier thyroids because they're "healthy"

    Cancer is natural, living to the age of 98 is not.

    Turns out you didn't have to wait too long for a new contestant. A mere two minutes later, this little gem:

    Now Jane....which is the dumbest shit you've ever heard?
