The Other, Other White Meat

Is cannibalism such a farfetched idea after all? In a world stricken with food shortages and other finite resources, such a proposition may find it’s way to a dinner table near you. What I’m not proposing is that everyone disband  and consume each other left and right, that, would be wrong. However, what if we were to consume those who have passed away through natural causes and the like?  Their bodies no longer of use to the original owner, human flesh harbors crucial nutrients key to survival; Nutritionally, cannibalism is sound. In addition to decreasing the food shortage, cannibalism also would decrease the amount of bodies filing up graveyards and crypts, increasing opportunity costs for land usage. If you’re interested, i discovered an interesting documentary on cannibalism. The short movie contains some interesting scientific discoveries pertaining to cannibalism that may surprise you.

What are your thoughts?
