It was interesting they were at the cleveland zoo with the guy who feeds the animals and they were getting the gorillas bucket of food ready full of fruits and vegtables-not super size hamburgers and fries-ha ha.

So true! Chimps have 98% of our DNA, practically identical intestinal tract, similar dentition. If a zoo was caught feeding their apes SAD there'd be a terrible outcry. In fact, in nations with poor zoo standards where visitors can get away with throwing choccy, chips, and ice cream into the enclosure you get chunky monkeys that wind up featured in the 'weird world' stories in the corner of tabloids.
In our mixed-up world you'd be a crank if you fed yourself or your kids mostly raw greens, fruits and veggies. Why do we think we deserve worse diets than apes?

Read Victoria Boutenko's "Green for Life" book. She thoroughly studied them and their diet and thus came up with us humans eating greens. It's very interesting!
AND isn't it amazing that they are the strongest animal on Earth? Too cool! Mama Earth knew what she was doing - creating all this goodness for us!
