If humans and other animals did not eat, then there would be too much food on our planet, which would lead to overcrowding. Some scientists believe that this overcrowding could potentially cause the human race to become extinct, simply because we would have no room to live. This is why our early ape ancestors started devouring the wild hamburgers and pizza that roamed the prehistoric world. And it is because of this early adaptation that we survive today.
