Question

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

Solution 1

No.Humans cannot survive only on raw, leafy vegetables, or grass. It is because the grass is rich in cellulose, which is a type of carbohydrate that humans are not able to digest due to the absence of cellulose-digesting enzymes

Solution 2

We know that the animals, fungi, bacteria, non-green plants and human being do not have the ability to make their own food. They depend upon autotrophs for their food directly or indirectly. The green plant (leafy vegetables/grass) trap solar energy and make their own food in the form of glucose. So, we can say that leafy vegetables and grass can provide sufficient energy to help us survive.
