Why do we have canine teeth?

I admire vegetarians, but there's one hurdle in their ethos: we have canine teeth.
I welcome a vegetarian to explain to me the presence of canine teeth in humans.
You!

    I'm a vegetarian. any vegetarian who tells you we aren't meant to eat meat is a wacko. We have canine teeth because we are designed as omnivores.

    I think your a wacko that needs to start doing some research. Take the human digestive tract for example, its not designed to properly digest meat among many other reasons like our lack of hydrochloric acid content in our stomachs. Our "canine" teeth are a joke, are you kidding me? Seriously lady, before deciding to respond on a subject, do yourself a favor and actually know what your talking about otherwise you just look stupid.

    Not sure what you mean exactly by me not using the English language properly. You sound like a fool. Your probably one of those people who say things just for the sake of saying them. Anyways, have a nice life.

    Having feet does not necessitate walking. It merely encourages it.

    canine teeth can be very usefull for tearing many vegatables apart and ripping them from the vine or out of the ground. Lets compare animals with eyes on the front of their face to ones on the side

    Humans are omnivores, especially because our bodies require nutrients from meat. I'm not a vegetarian, but this is a simple question to answer. Vegetarians choose to be because of various reasons varying from protesting animal abuse, not liking meat, etc.

    What nutrients are those exactly? Because anything necessary to sustain our life can be found in plant foods. Before anyone tries, let me nip the protein bit in the bud, look up broccoli before going there.

    Same reason we have an appendix. I don't think any vegetarian will deny that human beings evolved with the ability to eat meat- most of them argue that meat is not healthy/ethical.
