Eew! #Japanese #scientist makes #artificial 'meat' from human #sewage

Professor Mitsuyuki Ikeda of Japan's Okayama laboratory has created artificial meat from human sewage mud teeming with protein-rich bacteria. He admits that a 'psychological barrier' is a key weakness of marketing his new product. Thankfully, you won't see Ikeda's 'miracle meat' on supermarket shelves anytime soon -- it costs almost 20 times as much as real meat to produce. STOMPer Poopsicle wrote: "This has to be a joke right? Even the thought of eating a product made from human waste turns my stomach. "According to the (mad) scientist, human sewage teems with nutritious bacteria, which is killed by heat. The 'waste' is then purified of toxins, before being mixed with soybean protein to 'improve the flavour', while red food dye gives it a more appealing colour. "I'd still rather just put poop on a plant and let Mother Nature do the recycling for me, thank you very much."
