In some primitive belief systems it is thought that when certain body parts of an fallen enemy are consumed, it confers strength, bravery and other
attributes to person doing the consuming. Typically the body part is a heart or brains, but the liver may confer some "power" as well in their
beliefs. Cannibal behavior is on going in African tribal conflicts. It is a very ancient belief. In this case it also probable causes fear in the
enemy as well.
