There is a long-term debate on what to eat in the weight-loss world. There are "God" enzymes, slimming teas, and later salad leaves, and the existing ketogenic diet. In fact, everyone can not argue, because scientists have long given a perfect solution.

This program is cannibalist!

Eating human flesh, low calories

< /section>

James Cole of the University of Brighton in the UK seriously studied the nutritional value of human flesh and found that the cannibal diet Calories are much lower than other traditional diets.

This kind of serious research also won this year's Nobel Prize in Nutrition for Cole, which is the 28th first Funny Nobel Prize (well, they have to count this number).

So, is he doing research with modern human flesh (curious face)? Yes!

In the study, Cole used the average weight of each part of the four male bodies to analyze the calorific value of each part (fat and protein) by chemical composition, and constructed a human nutrition. Template. These data come from modern humans.

Compared with the raw human meat, the nutritional value of modern human flesh may still be worse. In the case of the already extinct Neanderthal, Cole guessed that their muscle mass is greater and the nutritional value of skeletal muscle may be higher.

Cole also compared the caloric value of some human meat with the "human flesh nutrition template". The remains of these animals were discovered in the Paleolithic era and where human eating behavior occurred. In other words, these animals are likely to be the rations of humans living in these places at the time.

Col found that the nutritional value of human skeletal muscle is roughly the same as that of animals of comparable size and weight, and there is nothing outstanding. However, if compared to mammoths, hairy rhinoceros, and some larger animals like deer,, human flesh is clearly a food with low nutritional (caloric) value >.

At the Funny Nobel Prize Presentation Ceremony, several people I also want to try a pot in public, and I was stopped by the Discipline Committee.

< p>Prehistoric people eat people, eat for millions of years

Speaking of eating human flesh We are better than primitive people. Archaeological evidence indicates that primitive human consumption of human flesh is not a temporary rise, and this method of eating may have a history of millions of years.

In 1936, the scholar Jia Lanpo found three human skulls. Some cracks and holes in the skulls indicate that the Beijing monks have the same kind of food.

In 1899, the Neanderthal discovered by anthropologists in the Krapina caves of Croatia, 30,000 years ago, and the other Nian, excavated in the Ferris Cave in France in 1909. The Det Skull and the 1940-year-old Southern fossils found in South Africa in 1924 have traces of rounded spikes on their heads. These all indicate that they may be involved in eating people.

Different from modern people's pursuit of low-calorie weight loss, primitive people want nutrition. In the early days of the evolution of human beings, humans had a lower status in the food chain and it was difficult to capture animals. It is very likely that they would eat their bodies and even kill similar foods as a source of protein. But it’s not just nutrition. Some scientists speculate that eating people may also be related to war and religious beliefs.
