Japan Invents Feces Meat

It’s June, not April, so pinch your nose and pray this is a joke:

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.

Listen, I don’t want to be accused of preaching…but maybe you could eat some rice and beans now and again?

And how about that Hemp protein… I mean, who knew?
