A researcher in Japan has processed treated human feces into a high protein food that looks and tastes like steak. Could this lead to the end of world hunger or would people rather starve than partake?

 

Per the article:

 

When Tokyo Sewage approached Mitsuyuki Ikeda, a researcher from the Okayama Laboratory, and asked him to explore potential uses for an overabundance of sewage mud, Ikeda found that, because of all the bacteria, the mud contained large amounts of proteins. Ikeda and his team isolated those proteins, combined them with a reaction enhancer and put it in an exploder, thereby creating le cuisine de merdeThe lab-grown steak is made from 63 percent proteins, 25 percent carbohydrates, 3 percent lipids, 9 percent minerals (and 100 percent you've-got-to-be-kidding-me). Researchers enhanced the flavor with soy protein and used red coloring to give the poo-burger that appetizing, meaty charm. According to DigitalTrends, initial taste-tasters have said the butt steaks even tastes like beef.

After you recover from vomiting, console yourself with the thought that the retail cost (in food stores) will be more than anyone (but wealthy fetishists) will want to pay.

 

OMG What is the world coming to when people are so concerned about population growth and resource povety that they are prepared to eat shit!

Another friend of mine sent me this earlier in the week. It brings back memories of that Charlton Heston chestnut "Soylent Green" . Perhaps this outcome is more of a Soylent brown though.
At last - the food replicator has been perfected.
I hope MSG was not used as a flavor enhancer.
A solar winter seems so much brighter now.
