Meat of The Matter: Cannibalism

Cannibalism- an act so unthinkable, we assume it only happens in desperately life threatening scenarios or as gruesome acts of evil insanity. However Bill Schutt, author of Cannibalism: A Perfectly Natural History, fleshes out the role that cannibalism has had in evolution and human history. Was it ever normal to eat another human being? What do humans taste like? Is it still happening today? We answer the questions you've always (or never) had about cannibalism, and why we find the notion of it both intriguing and repulsive.
