Question and answer
how are metabolic processes necessary for survival?
Metabolism is the sum total of all biochemical reactions that take place in a cell or organism. Without these processes cells could not generate energy, synthesize proteins or replicate. [ In a word, they would be dead. Particular processes may be disposable. For example, humans cannot synthesize all the amino acids the way many bacteria can but we get them from consuming proteins so these processes are not necessary. But as a whole, metabolic processes are the biochemistry of life. ]

All living organisms need energy to grow and reproduce, maintain their structures, and respond to their environments. Metabolism is the set of life-sustaining chemical processes that enables organisms transform the chemical energy stored in molecules into energy that can be used for cellular processes.
