So this is something I’ve wondered about on and off but ever got to actually trying to study it. I remember growing up , and even now, often hearing from those who eat meat, and especially from the Christian vegetarian community, that the foods the Hebrews were prohibited eating were all unhealthy foods. That Yahweh was looking out for them by banning unhealthy foods for them to eat. Like non kosher foods like shrimps and octopuses were unhealthy. But in general i almost always hear of these foods as healthy, for those flesh eaters that chow down on corpses anyways.
So it made me wonder has anyone looked into the specifics of why they had the prohibitions they had?
