    Japan scientist synthesizes meat from human feces

    It's being called the "poop burger". Japanese scientists have found a way to create artificial meat from sewage containing human feces.

    Somehow this feels like a Vonnegut plotline: population boom equals food shortage. Solution? Synthesize food from human waste matter. Absurd yes, but Japanese scientists have actually discovered a way to create edible steaks from human feces.

    Mitsuyuki Ikeda, a researcher from the Okayama Laboratory, has developed steaks based on proteins from human excrement. Tokyo Sewage approached the scientist because of an overabundance of sewage mud. They asked him to explore the possible uses of the sewage and Ikeda found that the mud contained a great deal of protein because of all the bacteria.

    The researchers then extracted those proteins, combined them with a reaction enhancer and put it in an exploder which created the artificial steak. The “meat” is 63% proteins, 25% carbohydrates, 3% lipids and 9% minerals. The researchers color the poop meat red with food coloring and enhance the flavor with soy protein. Initial tests have people saying it even tastes like beef.

    Inhabitat notes that “the meatpacking industry causes 18 percent of our greenhouse gas emissions, mostly due to the release of methane from animals.” Livestock also consume huge amounts of resources and space in efforts to feed ourselves as well as the controversy over cruelty to animals. Ikeda’s recycled poop burger would reduce waste and emissions, not to mention obliterating Dante’s circle for gluttons.

    The scientists hope to price it the same as actual meat, but at the moment the excrement steaks are ten to twenty times the price they should be thanks to the cost of research. Professor Ikeda understands the psychological barriers that need to be surmounted knowing that your food is made from human feces. They hope that once the research is complete, people will be able to overlook that ugly detail in favor of perks like environmental responsibility, cost and the fact that the meat will have fewer calories.

    Waste not; want not.



  2. Disgusting but i'm sure there are tons of starving people in the world that would eat it.

  4. obviously, nothing good can come from this...

  5. That just looks soooo terrible...

  6. Disturbing.....

  7. "the biggest problem will be the physiological barrier"......you got that right!

  8. It looks like poor quality beef jerky.
    So not only is it made from human feces but it's 10-20x more expensive? I'll still with top round serloin.

    But going on what T50 said, when you're starving food is food. You don't care where it comes from as long as it provides nutrients.
    By believing passionately in something that still does not exist, we create it. The nonexistent is whatever we have not sufficiently desired.

  9. hmmmmm

    Probably tastes like sh*t...

    This. ^^

    It probably could very well be better for you, but things in the world would have to change before you can get anyone willing to eat anything **** derived. Here's a better question - would people be more upset at eating something coming from ****, or coming from people? In this case, both are true.

  16. Wow. Ok this makes the idea of eating insects seem delicious.

    (Actually a pretty cool video and solid arguments if you have the time).

    Definitely an informative video, I think I would rather eat bugs than poop. The poop burger just has me thinking all kinds of zombie things, aka contaminated poop burger creates mad people disease (like madcow) and its TEOTWAWKI, I wonder if the scientist actually works for Umbrella.

  25. I've eaten some larvae and grasshoppers and they're not bad. They have a nutty flavor when you cook them. Ants are good when eaten alive, but it seems a bit pointless because you'd have to eat half a nest to get enough .
