Answer #8

Hayyim is correct that it smells bad to us so we won’t eat it. You see, many species of animals can not get all the nutrients out of food in one pass they eat so they eat their own excrement. Chickens are one example. True carnivores can safely eat putrid and feces contaminated carrion so these things do not smell bad to them. Since humans are omnivores that lack the strong stomach acid to safely consume rotten meat and feces we have evolved to be revolted by the taste and smell of these things.
