Japanese scientists convert human sewage into steak.

From a pure scientific research point of view, the following article is quite ingenious but the last line goes a little too far in my opinion :

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.

At least it didn’t taste like shite!

Expect the global warming worshippers to pick this one up sometime soon :

“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.

Huhne would love this – make us eat our own shite whilst being bent over and forcibly shafted to fund his green dreams.

    I enjoyed the steak I ate last night, I hope the Japs have the same enjoyment when eating it foir the second time.
    They could have thought of this during WW2 when their cpative guests were made to eat rats and fucking beetles, I hope they gag on every mouthful.

      Patrick – second, third, fourth … times.

      This shit (excuse the expression) sould be repeated ad infinitum.

      I suppose it was only a matter of time before someone tried this but rather them than me – I would like to think the thing I was eating once had four legs and wasn’t once described as a stool.
