Swedish scientist says people should become cannibals to combat climate change because eating human meat is more sustainable & # 39; is then the meat industry
- Professor Magnus Soderlund claimed that people could eat the flesh of dead bodies
- He said cannibalism could stop the global warning if society woke up & # 39;
- Eating people could be an ore sustainable option than eating insects, he claims
A solution for tackling climate change is to eat human flesh from dead bodies, claims a Swedish scientist.
Professor Magnus Soderlund, of the Stockholm School of Economics, believes that practicing cannibalism could save the planet if society awakens & # 39 ;.
Speaking on Swedish television, he suggested that dead bodies would be more sustainable than the meat and dairy industry – or even eating insects – if food sources became scarce in the future.

He also claimed that & # 39; conversation & # 39; about taboos of cannibalism can change over time and that people can be & # 39; misled & # 39; to & # 39; make the right decisions & # 39 ;, reports the Epoch Times.
Professor Soderlund first presented his argument during a panel discussion entitled & # 39; Can you imagine eating human flesh? & # 39; at the Gastro top.
When asked during an interview whether he would try human meat, he said he would be open to taste it, the publication reports.
& # 39; I feel a bit reluctant, but not to look too conservative … I should say …. I would be open to at least taste it & # 39 ;, told he the Swedish TV4.

People are known to practice cannibalism, such as Papa New Guinea tribes that cook and eat the dead that were thought to free the mind.
A French paleontologist has also found evidence of cannibalism of 100,000-year-old Neanderthal bones.
However, science has shown that cannibalism in humans is at risk for blood-borne diseases such as hepatitis or Ebola.
Why the meat industry is not sustainable
According to scientists, avoiding meat and dairy products is the greatest way to reduce the impact on the environment.
This is because livestock used for industry requires huge amounts of land.
The use of agricultural land can be reduced by more than 75 percent if the world chose to switch to a vegetable diet.
This is the size of an area that is equivalent to the United States, China, the European Union and Australia combined.
The loss of natural habitats for agriculture is the main cause of extinction for wildlife.
In Brazil, farmers set fire to the Amazon rainforest to free up space for livestock used for leather and meat.
Scientists also discovered that even meat and dairy products with the least impact still cause more damage than the least sustainable vegetable and grain crop.
