Also doesnt eating human brains actually end up giving the person a horrible disease, I want to say it was a flesh eating bacteria. Seriously no joke. LOL due to the amount of nerve cells or something they are consuming. Thought I heard about some syrians who all died because they ate parts of the brains from some guys severed head.
Although it is not expressly stated in the umbrella values of most dogmas or individual moral compasses, eating people is generally frowned upon. Most would say, “it goes without saying.” So, morally, we have proponents that say cannibalism is bad. To look at it from a different metric of good and bad, the United States Department of Agriculture prefers lean proteins to fatty red meats, which will overburden your daily limit of empty calories. We Americans, bursting on a culture of hamburgers and thick steaks, consume large quantities of empty calories that create a decidedly full figure. Therefore, nutritionally, cannibalism is not the diet for beach season.
There exists a third reason (as well as many more that will not be addressed here) why cannibalism is bad for you, and it seems like karma. If you eat human brains, you may contract a disease that will return the favor: kuru will eat your brain. Worse yet, there is no cure. - See more at: healthmap.org...
Kuru was first identified in 1961 among the Fore tribe in Papua New Guinea. Research suggested that the epidemic may have originated around 1900 from a single individual who lived on the edge of Fore territory and who is thought to have spontaneously developed some form of Creutzfeldt-Jakob Disease.
From that infected individual, Kuru spread easily and rapidly in the Fore people due to their endocannibalistic funeral practices, in which relatives consumed the bodies of their dead, especially the brain tissue where prions are concentrated, to return the “life force” of the deceased to the hamlet. By the mid-1960s, Kuru was in decline among the Fore due to Australian colonial law forbidding cannibalism, as well as the efforts of local Christian missionaries.
But cases continued to appear for several more decades because the mean incubation (asymptomatic) phase of the disease is 14 years after initial exposure, although cases were reported with latencies of 40 years or more. The clinical (symptomatic) phase of the disease lasts an average of 12 months, before the infected person dies.

There's nothing wrong with getting some head. Asian cultures eat fish heads, arabic countries find goat head delicious, especially the eyeball. Its a matter of perspective...

Two things I cannot wrap my head around: how did they advertise that they were serving roasted human head for more than an hour without being raided and shut down. And how do you eat roasted human head? Seems the brain would be the only thing edible.

"I went to the hotel early this year, after eating, I was told that a lump of meat was being sold at N700, I was surprised," a pastor who had visited the eatery said. "So I did not know it was human meat that I ate at such expensive price.
Apparently it must have been "finger licking good" because this pastor claims to have had some without realizing it was human meat.
...I guess the large price tag (whatever N700 is) caused him to think he was eating something else. Or maybe he is just playing dumb. Who knows.
....I'm still a bit taken back and without many words here, so I'm sort of just rambling.
WTF is wrong with some people? I mean, I understand humans have a LONG history of cannibalism but can we please just relegate that to the past? It's not really one of those "bright points" in our history, I don't want to see it become "trendy".
.....this world is more lost by the day

Second source. (A more local source, I think)
....though, I would say, what is happening in this world because it damn sure isn't just one country or another. Evil has near full reign on this Earth at this point.
