A BBC Science journalist decided he wanted to try something he had never eaten before. He had decided he would try meat that is so rare that less than 200 pounds exists in the entire world. After he obtained a little, he had a lab work on it for a while and he was ready.
What is this rare meat he was about to eat? It was part of his leg, although not the meaty part. Eating human flesh, even if it’s your own is illegal. He was able to use a little muscle from his leg and the lab turned it into aroma, which Greg Foot then cooked on top of a patty made from lamb and pork and cooked it. Initially the aroma made him back off but then he said it smelled good and when the burger was done he began to eat it.

BRITISH ROYALTY DINED ON HUMAN FLESH, CLAIMS NEW BOOK
They have long been famed for their love of lavish banquets and rich recipes. But what is less well known is that the British royals also had a taste for human flesh.
A new book on medicinal cannibalism has revealed that possibly as recently as the end of the 18th century British royalty swallowed parts of the human body.
Even as they denounced the barbaric cannibals of the New World, they applied, drank, or wore powdered Egyptian mummy, human fat, flesh, bone, blood, brains and skin.
Moss taken from the skulls of dead soldiers was even used as a cure for nosebleeds, according to Dr Richard Sugg at Durham University.
Whilst James I had refused to take human skull, his grandson Charles II liked the idea so much that he bought the recipe. Having paid perhaps £6,000 for this, he often distilled human skull himself in his private laboratory.
Dr Sugg said: ‘Accordingly known before long as ‘the King’s Drops’, this fluid remedy was used against epilepsy, convulsions, diseases of the head, and often as an emergency treatment for the dying.
‘It was the very first thing which Charles reached for on February 2 1685, at the start of his last illness, and was administered not only on his deathbed, but on that of Queen Mary in 1698.’
Pass the Phil.
