'Human Steaks' May Soon be Available for Human Consumption, Experts Insist It's Not Cannibalism https://www.techtimes.com/articles/...consumption-scientists-insist-cannibalism.htm Experts in the United States have created a "grow-your-own" human steak, which is practically made from your own body and is actually meant to be eaten, if you dare it. According to Metro, the project is known as The Ouroboros Steak, named after the Egyptian symbol of a snake eating its own tail. Soon enough, the people behind the project wants the public to participate with a DIY kit to grow their own Ouroboros steak, with tissue they can take from their own cheek, and then using mushroom mycelium scaffolds to produce them. According to the instructions on making these human steaks, they need to be kept in a warm place for three months before they can be fully grown and ready for eating. So, if you're eating something made from your own body and expired human blood, is it considered cannibalism? Many would think so, but apparently, it's not. Grace Knight, an industrial designer who helped with the project, said that the project is technically not cannibalism and that expired human blood is much cheaper and sustainable than FBS but is less-accepted as it's deemed as waste material in the medical system. As of now, lab-grown meats are not approved for human consumption.
