Could cannibalism be ‘perfectly natural’? This scientist thinks so.

Although cannibalism is often depicted as aberrant behavior, Schutt found that it occurs all the time in the natural world. We humans have also long made a habit of consuming our own—Renaissance Europeans drank human blood as medicine; Pacific Islander communities ate the flesh of deceased relatives as a gesture of grief. Schutt even tried a taste of a human organ (don’t worry, no people were harmed in the making of this book).

Oh, I wish I had the time to break this article down fully. There are so many problems with this, so many logical inevitabilities, which I’m sure the author of the book (Schutt) would deny, but which will inevitably develop, anyway, for anyone who adopts the principles he is espousing. Human cannibalism became taboo in the Western world for a reason, and it should remain taboo.
