Cannibalism...

Post by i_r_e_d » Tue May 09, 2006 1:51 pm

Yeah i was doing research on the Aztecs and i found out that they used to eat humans, drink blood from the enemies skulls, and dance inside a victims skin.... :? I was just wondering if this could have any long term effects on humans... the whole human blood thing...

i wouldnt think that the actual eatin of the blood would cause ne harm. its more the moral of eating the blood of somethin else. or even ur own blood. its just sick. the thought of it causes me to want to barf

As for drinking blood I don't know, but in new Guinea, ritual cannibalism is suuposed to be the causeof the spread of a prion disease named Kuru.
