Poop Burger....(Evironmentalists Ultimate recycling process to save Mother Earth?)
Inhabitat.com ^ | 06/17/11 | Lori Zimmer

Posted on 06/17/2011 8:12:00 AM PDT by AngelesCrestHighway

The meatpacking industry causes 18 percent of our greenhouse gas emissions, mostly due to the release of methane from animals. The livestock industry also consumes huge amounts of feed and water in relation to the amount of meat that it yields, and many find the industry to be inhumane and cruel to animals. These factors alone are reason enough for vegetarians to replace their meat intake with vegetable proteins and legumes. But Ikeda, a scientist at the Environmental Assessment Center in Okayama, sought to further the field of alternative proteins by recycling a form of protein-rich waste : sewage mud.

“Sewage mud” is exactly what you think it is – poop. Ikeda’s process begins by extracting protein and lipids from the “mud.” The lipids are then combined with a reaction enhancer, then whipped into “meat” in an exploder. Ikeda then makes the poop more savory, by adding soya and steak sauce.

Currently, the price of the poop burgers are 10-20 times that of regular meat, due to the cost of research, but he feels they will even out in a few years. He admits that “some people” may have a psychological aversion to eating artificial meat made of their own poop at first, but thinks many would be open to personally completing the food chain. He also notes that the burgers are extremely low in fat.

Just goes to show you how important religion is to people.

Seriously, these people are advocating eating their own poop in support of their religion!

Any other religion that advocated something similar would be seen as completely ridiculous and fanatical.

My dog used to eat his own poop.

Who’d have thought he was a trend setter!

Is the name of this burger anything close to soilent? I suspect it is greener than green or would it be brown? Outlets will be named WHAT? There should be profiling of all who eat there so people will know which people to avoid. Yes I did say profiling. For anyone eating one has to be crazy.

many find the industry to be inhumane and cruel to animals

But I guess making burgers out of excrement for human consumption isn't inhumane and cruel to humans?

First thing that came to my mind but 'Green?' Actually, wouldn't it be 'SoyPoop' or maybe 'SoyLent Grunt?' Maybe McDonald's could start a line of 'Butt Nuggets.' Kids would love them.

Would the napkins come on a roll?

It’s true. Environmentalists want us to wear burlap sacks, live in caves, and eat ***. And even then that won’t be good enough for them. Their real aim for us is death, because mankind is an “infection” on the earth mother they worship.

Oh, good grief. Astronauts drink recycled urine because they can`t bring gazillions of gallons of water into space with them. If a breakthrough comes that creates “artificial” meat, more power to them. But I guess some feel that “real” meat loaded with pesticides, hormones, anti-biotics, steroids, and God knows what else is oh-so healthy.

I watched the video.......I’m 99% sure this is a prank. The dubbing is out of sync, and the video ends in China, not Japan.
Still, funny, in a gross sort of way, and creative as pranks go.

That is why some of us raise most of the meat we eat. Now for those inclined if they so choose please fill free to do so.

However please keep your distance and use some industrial strength tooth paste and mouth wash before meeting those not so inclined.
