This is just my logic, but... You can produce sugar from protein (and fat if you count ketones) and fat from sugar. You cannot produce protein from any other energy source (to my knowledge). Therefore, protein is the most needed of all energy sources. Meat has alot of protein. Meat has always been what we need the most.
In all of the universe there is only one person with your exact charateristics. Just like there is only one person with everybody else's characteristics. Effectively, your uniqueness makes you pretty average.
