So a few years ago I caught an episode of Oprah where Dr. Oz was on talking about how (gasp!) any meat that you ingest essentially sits and rots in your intestines and isn't digested in a useful way. Oh, and it stops you up - slows the movement of food through your body. If I recall, this is a popular assertion of vegetarians and vegans.
I've googled trying to find evidence to support or deny this but so far I haven't found anything other than short snippets saying "this is false." No more detailed explanation (though maybe none is needed).
For the record, I think it's bull. I'm positive our bodies are capable of digesting meat but I can't find support of it. Anyone have explanations or know of resources I can go to?
