A man has done the unbelievable by having a chunk of his flesh cut off and having it cooked so that he could know how the human meat tastes.
Do you know what human flesh tastes like? That was the curiosity that pushed a man to remove a small chunk of flesh from his leg and cooked it. He says it tastes somewhere between pork and lamb, with a smell that 'similar to beef and ale stew.'
 
Journalist Greg Foot took the extreme measures and the analysis revealed the muscle contains fibers similar to those found in both chicken Bosom  and some cuts of beef.
Because eating human flesh - even if it's your own - is illegal, the BBC science journalist cooked his biopsy for chemical analysis of the aromas.
 
Smell is a huge component of taste, and Foot says sniffing his cooked meat will give him an accurate idea of what it would be like to eat it.
After initially recoiling, Foot says: 'That actually smells quite nice. It's really meaty... a lot richer than pork or chicken.' A chemical analysis places his flesh as somewhere between pork and lamb.
Using the aroma from his flesh sample, Foot then made a replica burger using lamb and pork.
 
Quote
'It's good, it's like really beefy, a bit lamby,' said Foot.
'I think it's the closest I'm ever going to get to tasting human, and I tell you what, it's pretty good.'
 

While eating human flesh now is illegal this wasn't always the case. it was reports that a new book on medicinal cannibalism recently revealed that at the end of the 18th century British royalty swallowed parts of the human body.
 
The book claims that eating human flesh was widespread among the well-to-do in Europe and in America.
 
Dr Richard Sugg at Durham University, said:
Quote
'The human body has been widely used as a therapeutic agent with the most popular treatments involving flesh, bone or blood.'
'Cannibalism was found not only in the New World, as often believed, but also in Europe.
 
'One thing we are rarely taught at school yet is evidenced in literary and historic texts of the time is this: James I refused corpse medicine; Charles II made his own corpse medicine; and Charles I was made into corpse medicine.
'Along with Charles II, eminent users or prescribers included Francis I, Elizabeth I's surgeon John Banister, Elizabeth Grey, Countess of Kent, Robert Boyle, Thomas Willis, William III, and Queen Mary.'

He actually didn't eat his flesh as the headline made us believe.

Before, I wasn't sure, but now I know for sure that most people on here don't read the stories and articles before jumping to the comment section. Or it's either some people just can't COMPREHEND. Too BAD... The dude didn't EAT his meat.. READ... Lazy Minds..
