Cannibalism has been called a tradition of savages. The populations that practice cannibalism are largely viewed as monsters and depraved. It's a violation of one of the deepest taboos, to treat the body of a human being as if it were meat. Despite the stigma, time and time again, human beings have opted to eat their own kind. Sometimes in order to survive - like the Andes plane survivors of 1972. Sometimes to terrorise. Sometimes to even convey love, for example, eating the body at a funeral. The thought of people eating the flesh of other people evokes strong emotions - but we are not as innocent as we would like to think... Traces of cannibalism exist all around the world. We've been eating other human beings since our early ancestors walked the Earth.
