Mitsuyuki Ikeda Wants You to Eat His Burger Patties Made from Human Waste

I know the world’s population is increasing by the thousands every second as we speak, and the time will eventually come that the world’s resources will no longer be able to provide for the needs of all the human beings on the planet.

Because of such impending phenomenon, scientists all over the world have worked long and hard to develop hybrid corn and crops that grow bigger and faster. Researchers are also working double-time to come up with innovations in recycling and finding further uses for our waste so that we don’t run out of natural resources too soon.


One Japanese scientist with probably good intentions took all this to heart and presented his suggestion to a disgusted audience: burger patties made with meat synthesized from human feces. (And yes, we mean human crap, poop, excrement, or deposit, whatever you want to call it.)

That’s right. Mitsuyuki Ikeda, a researcher from Okayama’s Environmental Assessment Center, wants to help alleviate the world’s food crisis with human poop burgers.

This really isn’t “meat” per se. It’s sort of an artificial meat that’s derived from human waste. The patties are composed of 63% proteins, 25% carbohydrates, 3% lipids, and 9% minerals.

He calls his meat “sewage mud” which I think is pretty appropriate. Ikeda maintains that his sewage mud will one day become a sellable commodity as opposed to the more costly process that is needed to produce and process real meat.

Like I said, his intentions and thoughts are noble and good. The final product? Not so much.
