Is cannibalism wrong?

Posted by: dietorangesoda

Ok so forget the cultural stigma and possible religious arguments against it and just think about one human eating another for nutrition or curiosity and mind you this is a person who has died not been killed and so who's body has no use anymore is this wrong?

Although it is not expressly stated in the umbrella values of most dogmas or individual moral compasses, eating people is generally frowned upon. Most would say, “it goes without saying.” So, morally, we have proponents that say cannibalism is bad. To look at it from a different metric of good and bad, the United States Department of Agriculture prefers lean proteins to fatty red meats, which will overburden your daily limit of empty calories. YOU Americans, bursting on a culture of hamburgers and thick steaks, consume large quantities of empty calories that create a decidedly full figure. Therefore, nutritionally, cannibalism is not the diet for beach season. There exists a third reason (as well as many more that will not be addressed here) why cannibalism is bad for you, and it seems like karma. If you eat human brains, you may contract a disease that will return the favor: kuru will eat your brain. Worse yet, there is no cure. -

Well they are not empty they have protine along with other things. It is not bad if you eat some once in an while.
