Would YOU Eat Human Cheese?


From grist.org:

Human cheese is initially a pretty shocking concept to most people. In that way its a great conversation starter -- people very quickly bring up all sorts of different issues. I've had questions come up like, is it OK for a vegan? Is it empowering or exploitative of the woman? Is it dangerous, or actually healthier?

Many people feel uncomfortable because they don't know the woman, or what she is eating -- but how often do you know the cows whose milk make your cheese, and what they are eating?


Here's another question: what the f#$@! is wrong with you??? People feel uncomfortable about it because (in the words of Chandler Bing): "It's juice squeezed from a person." I would no sooner eat human cheese that I would drink lemonade made from saliva. I would not could not on a train. I would not could not in the rain. I would not could not eat them with some lox. I could not would not, even if she were a fox. Ugh.

This is a prime example of "sure, you could do it, but should you?" I'm going with no.


Thanks to Tony for sending this and turning my stomach.
