There's this series on the History channel on Evolve. How we attained certain parts of our bodies like jaws and our guts. The one on guts/digestion tract suggested that our discovering fire made food tastier and easier to digest that we started to evolve smaller guts then our cousins the apes which still eat raw food.

So since I have a smaller gut due to the surgery a few years back, I maybe might do better to not eat my steak rare. I might digest it better if it were cooked more. Been thinking on that. Course, I don't eat steak much.

I do like my steak rare tho,

If we don't count our blessings
We are just wasting our time
