Q
Nutrition in Animals

Question:

Can we survive only on raw, leafy vegetables/grass? Discuss.

The grass is rich in cellulose. Ruminants have cellulose digesting bacteria in their rumen. Human cannot survive by eating only grass because humans cannot digest cellulose as we do not have cellulose digesting bacteria in our stomach.
