Japanese-Turd-Poop-Burger.jpgA Japanese scientist has developed steaks and patties made from "sewage mud," which is, in other words, poop. The researcher Mitsyuki Ikeda "extracted protein from human poop, mixed it with soya, added steak sauce and called it hamburger patties." The result is 63% protein, 25% carbohydrates, 3% lipids, and 9% minerals. At the end of the day, though, still 100% human shit. [Youtube via Gizmodo]
