From Pre-History Until Today, Human Flesh, Fetuses and Bodily Fluids Have Always Been on the Menu…
Early West Asians (“Europeans”) Ate Human Meat for Hundreds of Thousands of Years
For some European cavemen, human meat wasn’t a ritual delicacy or a food of last resort but an everyday meal, according to a new study of fossil bones found in Spain. Cannibalized human bones were found in cave layers spanning a period of around a hundred thousand years, suggesting the practice was fairly consistent, according to the study.
Scientists believe the abundance of good hunting meant the early Europeans did not need to resort to eating each other but did anyway. “They did not practice cannibalism through a lack of food,” explained Dr de Castro. “They killed their rivals and used the meat.” His team has determined that the practice continued through generations and that the majority of the victims were children or adolescents.

In one cave in Spain, the butchered remains of at least 11 humans were found mixed up with those of bison, deer, wild sheep, and other animals, said study co-author José Maria Bermúdez de Castro. As well as de-fleshing marks and evidence of bone-smashing to get at the marrow inside, there are signs the victims also had their brains eaten. (Source)
“gastronomic cannibalism” was commonplace and habitual—both to meet nutritional needs and to kill off local competition. Humans attracted to Sierra de Atapuerca, Spain would have fought over the fertile territory—and cannibalism would have been a good way of dealing with the competition.
Medieval Mummy Medicine
‘The question was not, “Should you eat human flesh?” but, “What sort of flesh should you eat?”.
From creating candles made of human fat in the 1880s, to drinking blood at the scaffold, or making remedies out of crushed skull powder, many Europeans had no moral or ethical concerns about eating, drinking or otherwise using the bodies of dead people.
According to a new book Medicinal Cannibalism in Early Modern English Literature and Culture, by Louise Noble, many Europeans – from royalty to scientists – routinely ate remedies containing human bones, fat and blood in order to solve everyday complains from headaches to epilepsy.
Some followers advocated drinking blood fresh from the body, which does not seem to have caught on, but poor people could pay a small price for a cup of warm blood, served seconds after executions.
Sugg also quotes a French recipe from 1679, which describes how to turn blood into marmalade.
The other belief at the time was that human remains contained the soul of the body, with young men or virgin women seen as the ‘freshest’, and highly prized.
Even the great Renaissance man Leonardo da Vinci said: ‘We preserve our life with the death of others. In a dead thing insensate life remains which, when it is reunited with the stomachs of the living, regains sensitive and intellectual life.’
Sugg found such examples as an Englishman, in 1847, being advised to mix the skull of a young woman with treacle and feed it to his daughter to cure her epilepsy (which he dutifully carried out, but allegedly it failed).
And in 1908, a last known attempt was made in Germany to swallow blood at the scaffold. (Source)
In 2014, two human heads were found at an unnamed hotel restaurant and wrapped in cellophane, according to a report out of Anambra, Nigeria, in which police were tipped off to the restaurant allegedly serving human meat in burgers. (Source)

Woman Uses Bacteria from Vagina to Make Yogurt
“What could be healthier than taking healthy bacteria from her vagina,” Westbrook reasoned, “and culturing more of it to later ingest?”
The “collection method” was done with a wooden spoon. She set up a positive control (made with actual yogurt as the starter culture) and a negative control (plain milk with nothing added), and combined her own home-made ingredient to the third batch of yogurt. Left overnight, the magic of biology created a respectably-sized bowl.
Her first batch of yogurt tasted sour, tangy, and almost tingly on the tongue. She compared it to Indian yogurt, and ate it with some blueberries.
