A scientist in Sweden suggested eating human flesh to fight against climate change.
A Swedish scientist speaking at the Stockholm summit offered an unusual possible tactic in combating global climate change: eating human flesh.
Stockholm School of Economics professor and researcher Magnus Soderlund reportedly said he believes eating human meat, derived from dead bodies, might be able to help save the human race if only a world society were to "awaken the idea."
Soderlund's argument for human cannibalism was front and center during a panel talk called "Can You Imagine Eating Human Flesh?" at the Gastro Summit, reports the Epoch Times.
"Conservative" taboos against cannibalism, he said, can change over time if people simply tried eating human flesh.
Some of the talking points at the seminar included whether humans were too selfish to "live sustainably" and if cannibalism is the solution to food sustainability in the future.
When asked during an interview after his talk if he personally would try human flesh, Soderlund said he was open to the idea.
