I thought I had seen it all until I found this video. How could this woman be addicted to eating her own husbands ashes? That is just totally gross and insane.

I don't know what to say about this. I think someone needs some serious therapy. If I think too much about it I might need therapy too! Who knows, in some cultures this might be the done thing.

I wouldn't say so. After a body has been cremated it isn't really any different from fireplace ashes. Mainly left over carbon and such. However this is still very strange! I mean... DAMN!

ETA: More specifically, after cremation no human cells remain, so no, it definitely is not cannibalism.

Dare I say it?

....but at least she will run out soon.

My single problem with all these shows about "strange addictions" is that without the television, these people would never get the attention it seems they so desperately seek. There are some seriously bored people out there, or mentally ill, that need to keep their minds and hands occupied. Apparently if they don't, these strange and often disgusting habits come about.

I will never understand the incredible thing that is the human mind.

Strange that you believe she does it just for attention and that you believe if there was no tv she would not do it.

She realizes that it is not right and has asked for help - she is in grief, she does not want to let go of her husband. Hopefully she has found the help she needed to let go and move on- this was 2011.

Infact,


It is believed that some Native American cultures such as the Mayoruna people practiced endocannibalism in the past.[1] Ya̧nomamö consumed the ground-up bones and ashes of cremated kinsmen in an act of mourning. This is still classified as endocannibalism, although, strictly speaking, "flesh" is not eaten.[2] The Aghoris of northern India consume the flesh of the dead floated in the Ganges in pursuit of immortality and supernatural powers.[3]

Anyone can post anything they want on wiki answers and without mentioning a source. Even Wikipedia is not ok to directly quote, you should use that info to start your research, especially the sources at the bottom of the page...but wiki answers is just average joes talking smack.

I did, hence the reason I quoted text from the main WIKI page a couple of posts above. From there I was able to click the links [sources] and conclude that it is indeed a form of endocannibalism.

Did you see my post above regarding this. Check it out and follow the links


Cheers

Edit to add:


The Yanomami people practice ritual endocannibalism, in which they consume the bones of deceased kinsmen.[6] The body is wrapped in leaves and placed in the forest some distance from the shabono, then after insects have consumed the soft tissue (usually about 30 to 45 days), the bones are collected and cremated. The ashes are then mixed with a kind of soup made from bananas which is consumed by the entire community. The ashes may be preserved in a gourd and the ritual repeated annually until the ashes are gone.

You keep linking to wiki sources...

Are you just trying to troll or just don't understand that cannibalism is the consumption of ones flesh by another of the same species?

Modern crematories completely destroy all flesh including bones, your sources are referencing tribal rituals of consuming 'charred' bones (cells still remain). There is a difference, not huge, but the small difference changes the whole scenario as flesh is not consumed.

I do, for you to further your research by clicking the links provided.

No, not at all. And don't be so rude. I understand what you appear to be missing in that there is more than one term/meaning of cannibalism. You appear to be settled on just one version without following my links and sources to find the others. I have supplied quotes about endocannibalism in which certain tribes eat the ashes of the dead, this is the topic and questions being asked in the thread after all.

Of course my sources are. The topic of this thread is about eating human ashes with members asking the question " is it classed as cannibalism ". It is and its classed as endocannibalism regardless if its modern or tribal, the truth still remains the same.

Why can't you follow this is beyond me


Follow the links and think outside the box man. There is a lot to learn other than citing one reference to reference cannibalism


Cheers

a reply to: Spiro

Dude you are so lost it's not even funny.

Eat charred bones = cannibalism
Eat ashes = not cannibalism... just gross
endocannibalism = eating someone of the same tribe

I'm not missing anything. All (reliable) sources define cannibalism as eating flesh (not ashes)

Since modern crematories can get sooo hot they also destroy the bones (human cells, flesh) eating the ashes is not cannibalism. (no cells are left)

Again the difference lies in the fact that the tribes you are linking to were actually eating human cells and modern crematories are hot enough to leave no cells behind.
