Global Warming


This should be the litmus test for all the tree huggers out there demanding radical change in our way of living due to the preposterous notion that mankind is warming up the globe. These eco nut jobs should prove their credentials and eat poop-meat. KGS

NOTE: It would be the first time that something going into the Eco whack-jobs  mouths, would match what comes out of them.

Steak Made from Human Excrement: Is It Safe?

The mere idea is stomach-churning: creating food from human feces.

But researchers in Japan say they have done just that. They have synthesized meat from proteins found in human waste, according to news reports.

While the concept of chowing down on steak derived from poop may not exactly be appetizing, we wondered: is this meat safe?

In theory, yes, experts say. But the meat must be cooked, which will kill any noxious pathogens before you eat it.

“In the food safety world we say, ‘don’t eat poop,'” said Douglas Powell, a professor of food safety at Kansas State University. “But if you’re going to, make sure it’s cooked.”

The Japanese researchers isolated proteins from bacteria in sewage. The poop-meat concoction is prepared by extracting the basic elements of food — protein, carbohydrates and fats — and recombining them.

The meat is made from 63 percent proteins, 25 percent carbohydrates, 3 percent lipids and 9 percent minerals, according to Digital Trends. Soy protein is added to the mix to increase the flavor, and food coloring is used to make the product appear red.

  1. In the understatement department: “…I’m sure there’s a yuck factor there.”

    Er… uh… no kidding, Sherlock!

    The Japanese are notorious for not wasting ANYTHING, but this is taking frugality to the nth degree of absurdity.

    Here in the U.S. the talk is about how to extract methane from sewage to drive electrical generators. It’s called “poop-to-power”. In fact, there’s a poop-to-power exhibit at the Museum of Science and Industry in Chicago, Illinois. Chicago, Illinois’ poop-to-power contributions are legendary.

  2. Fundamentally, the tree-huggers view is that the unwashed should eat such stuff to maintain their own continued access to the goodies.

    They will be all for it……….but.

  3. Where I reside, we eat a lot of steak – porterhouse, scotch eye fillet, rump, t- bone, and so on.

    There is an art – even a science – to grilling a nice tender juicy steak.

    It should be slightly underdone with a little pinkness in the centre.

    So for me poop steak would not be the go, thanks very much.
