I know I really should have ended this article at the punchlines, but I’ve got more to say. (And before we go any farther, I am not arguing that we should never eat vegetables: I’m just busting a silly myth.) First, I’ll footnote the essay above with these references. Bacterial concentrations in this region are 10(2)-10(5) cfu/ml intestinal content. Significance of microflora in proteolysis in the colon. “Proteolytic activity was significantly greater than (P less than 0.001) in small intestinal effluent than in feces (319 /- 45 and 11 /- 6 mg of azocasein hydrolyzed per h per g, respectively).” and that doesn’t count what already occurred in the stomach.In the colon, bacterial concentrations of 10(11)-10(12) cfu/g faeces are found.” In other words, So bacterial digestion (‘rotting’) is not significant anywhere in our digestive tract but the colon. If meat were being digested in the colon, we would expect a far greater amount of proteolysis to occur there.Meanwhile, the surface of the small intestine absorbs anything that our enzymes have broken down into sufficiently small components—usually individual amino acids, simple sugars, and free fatty acids.
Now if vegan pseudoscience is right, we would suspect that the hose was being plugged by pieces of meat. I became so curious about this that I once swallowed the largest chunk of meat I could possibly get down without choking.
And that 3.4% is likely due to dead intestinal bacteria (which make up a significant fraction of feces), not undigested meat.
Because of my excessive output, we had to make a rig that had a hose extending from the ostomy bag that drained into a one gallon jug.
“Humans can’t actually digest meat: it rots in the colon.” And its variant: “Meat takes 4-7 days to digest, because it has to rot in your stomach first.” (Some variations on this myth claim it takes up to two months!
) Like most vegetarian propaganda, it’s not just false, it’s an inversion of truth.

As the proverb says, “When you point your finger, your other three fingers point back at you.” Let’s take a short trip through the digestive system to see why!
