Not entirely. We can’t it raw, that is aside from steak tartar from time to time but over all the meat we humans eat has to be cooked. Cooking brings out certain enzymes raw meat doesn’t. We don’t have a digestion system to process raw meat. We also don’t have the kind of teeth for meat eating that meat eating predators have.

Not to mention that carnivors have short digestive tracts, whereas human digestive tracts are fairly long.

Our ancestors thousands of generations ago did just fine eating meat. We’re all around today because they fought their way to the top of the food chain.

We have ripping and tearing teeth as well as grinding teeth. As humans we have the ability to adapt which included eating meat that has been cooked and killing instruments. We don’t need to kill prey with our teeth.
