Yes. Fecal matter contains fiber, and the fiber can be used to make paper.

Of course money is printed on paper! But not wood fiber paper. It is printed on cotton fiber paper. It is more durable than wood fiber and harder to counterfeit. There are also red and blue fibers embedded into the paper for anti-counterfeiting purposes. Ben Franklin invented the cotton/red blue fibered paper we still use to print our money on today.

Paper has cellulose fiber but human body can't digest cellulose fiber.

No, paper towels are made of paper, which is wood and plant fiber pulp. Cotton is a natural fiber. Both are mostly cellulose, but cotton is generally not used in paper towels.

I'm not really sure. But since lead is used in the process of making paper money to keep the printing from fading...I'd pass on trying to "digest" it. Paper is mainly made of cellulose fibers and human body can't digest cellulose fiber.

No, although the components are similar. The "paper" used for US currency is made from a special fiber blend consisting of roughly 3/4 cotton and 1/4 linen.

Paper money was used in china because it was easy to carry around. Paper money could be carried in large amounts unlike coins. Paper money was the main currency in the song dynasty of china. Soon paper money spread around the world and is still being used today.

It depends on the country. In America, it's made mostly of cotton fiber.

Due to the insufficient amount of gold coin paper money was used instead. In the Confederacy also Postage stamps were used as paper money.

Well, PAPER money is made with wood pulp. This would result in "monopoly money", however, and would get destroyed when wet. REAL money (Currency, like the American dollar bill for instance) is made with a blend of Cotton and Linen (25% and 75% respectively) with special security fibers also added.

Any plant really can be used, but the primary source of plant fiber (pulp) for making paper is trees.

Most of our paper comes from wood fiber. However other plant materials are also used in special circumstances.
