    Beyond the ethics cannibalism or even eating other primates is just a bad idea healthwose, you'd get whatever diseases and parasites they had really easily. On top of that they'd have all sorts of medication in them most likeley, especially if they were old... Sounds like a rrecipe for your own death to me.

    I would like to know how my human was raised first. I wouldn't eat old people either I don't think.

    Genuinely think I would try it depends on the human.

    Don't think I'd want to try it but what about placenta? People eat that anyway and as long as it was freely donated would that be a problem? The biggest problem I could see is that it would likely needed testing and that could be prohibitive financially.

    I personally would like the meat of humans, like lamb is to sheep.

    So it's ethical to eat placenta but not use it for stem cells ?

    I'd try it out of morbid curiosity, to see what it tastes like (apparently like a cross between veal and pork but much sweeter), but that's it.

    What better way to celebrate the life of an animal (humans included), than by eating it? I'd probably eat a human if (and only if) it had died naturally, and if it would be a safe and healthy thing to eat.

    I'm a bit clueless as to the nutritive quality of human meat, though, so you'll have to forgive me. It's not something I've endeavoured to bone up on, in all honesty.

    Perhaps it's the stem cell thing that some people find questionable rather than the actual donation as people do donate things like organs and body parts alive and dead. For the record I've no particular opinion on stem cells.

    Usually the person consuming the placenta is the person who owns it and in the context of the OP it would still seem a bit weird however it isn't generally viewed as cannibalism. Mainly with the placenta thing the donor isn't dead.

    Here's another thing to make people spew over their cornflakes what about the fat that sucked out of folks from liposuction? Actually I'm feeling nauseous at that thought myself. :puke:

    Breast milk, there's another one.

    The strongest case against cannibalism is a version of mad cow disease or Creutzfeld-Jacob disease known as kuru to the Fore people of Papua New Guinea. If you absolutely must eat a body part, you may want to avoid the brain, spinal cord, bone marrow, and small intestine, which are the ones most likely to be infected.

    Have you guys ever smelt a burning human body or charred body? It does not smell like BBQ chicken trust me you'd vomit alone from the smell of the human meat being cooked.

    One could probably prepare it so that those parts of the body that release a horrible smell don't get cooked. Human flesh isn't really that different from the flesh of a pig, and we seem to do all right with cooking pigs.

    If you burn any meat it's not going to smell nice. It didn't smell that nice when they were burning all those cows after the BSE thing.

    There's a difference between burning and cooking!

    With regards to the original question, seriously don't know. I'd like to think I'd try anything once but honestly don't know about this one...
