Meat rots in our body

This is one of the most common myths about meat - it rots in the gut. The meat is exposed to the acids and digestive enzymes in the stomach. Proteins split into amino acids and fats split into fatty acids. Thereafter they are absorbed through the intestinal wall and enter the bloodstream. As a result, there is nothing that could rot.
