Let them eat sh*t! Japanese scientist synthesizes meat from human feces

Remember the movie Soylent Green, the science fiction thriller where star Charlton Heston discovers the government is making food from dead people? Well, the Japanese have now created "Soylent Brown"; a synthetic meat created from human poop. No joke. Researcher Mitsuyuki Ikeda created a meat substitute using proteins from human excrement. Tokyo Sewage sponsored the research because of the overabundance of "sewage mud".

The researchers then extracted the proteins from the sewage and combined them with a reaction enhancer. The mud is then put it in an "exploder" which creates the artificial meat. The “meat” consists of 63% protein, 25% carbohydrates, 3% lipids and 9% minerals. It is then dyed red with food coloring and the flavor with is enhanced with soy protein.

The scientists say it tastes just like meat. Yummy.
