humans are omnivores, as shown by dental evidence. we need meat and vegetation to survive, unless there is some change in our immune systems, since meat is a great spot for bacteria to grow and also the fiber in vegetation helps digest the meat.

The traditional Maasai diet consists of meat, milk and blood. Nowadays, though, they also eat corn and other crops.
