Buddhism, Zen Meditation should not eat animal products?

Asked: Buddhism, Zen Meditation should not eat animal products?

I was told by a Buddhist monk that we should not eat animals products if we call ourselves Buddhist or practice Zen Meditation. He said that we are Fruitarians by nature and designed to eat Fruits/greens and some nuts and that we are primarily primates. He said that primates eat occasionally insects when they can't find fruits but if given the choice they prefer fruits. He said that Buddha was wrong in his teachings by permitting Buddhist monks to accept meals with fishes or meat in them. He said that one should not eat dead animals , that by doing so they are encouraging more killings and sufferings and therefore the diet is not compatible with the Buddhist views. He said that animal consummation leads to chronic diseases ( Cancers/heart diseases etc..) and that by itself should be a clear warning that we are not designed to eat animals products. He said that any Buddhist that is not a vegetarian/vegan should be ashamed of himself.
