    Taboo Food

    I've seen a documentary about foods that are taboo. Things we don't usually eat in our culture, but other cultures do, like dogs, cats, insects from worms to tarantulas, reptiles like crocodiles and snakes and more.

    There is a yearly taboo dinner in the USA at a prestigious hotel where celebrities and rich peoples come to try the taboo food. Would you go to such an event? Would you eat taboo food?

    I wouldn't mind trying exotic meats like crocodile but I wouldn't knowingly eat cat or dog meat or insects simply because it looks disgusting.



    Dog meat just looks horrid, not to mention the creepy crawlers that pass for food over there in Asia.

    Yuck, no. I bet these celebrities and rich people who go to those dinners only do it for attention, and puke everything when the camera isn't on.

    I would eat some of those things if I was starving only. I think the celedrities are taboo themselves.

    I would never eat cats, and I think I would sooner starve than eat dogs, too.

    Most other things I would probably try to swallow if I had no choice.
    The most unusual thing I ever ate was probably sausages made from kangaroo meat, but I didn't really enjoy them, although they tasted okay. I remember watching 'Skippy the Bush Kangaroo' as a small child and I guess that childhood affection stayed lodged somewhere in my subconscious.

    I really like seafood, especially shellfish, but I believe eating such things is classed as unacceptable as eating insects in certain cultures.

    The insects it's said they contain many times more protein than meats. But we don't eat them because of the disgusting look, and because some are associated with insalubrity, disease or poison. I saw some peoples even ate scorpions.

    But if you watch the shows about survival, in nature when you find no other food, you've to eat insects, disgusting things like worms too, if nothing else is available.

    The most taboo thing is cannibalism. Many animals practice cannibalism and eat their dead but it's also practiced by some primitivistic cultures in the jungle. But some peoples were stranded on a rubber raft in the ocean, for days, without food and water, and one of them died. The remaining ones considered eating her meat to survive. The reason they didn't do it was because she died of many infections, and they didn't want to risk contamination. Otherwise I don't know what would have happened.

    Did you hear about the famous British TV chef who filmed a programme in which he was making the food for a child's christening?
    The 'high point' of the meal was the child's placenta, fried with shallots and garlic.
    Many people complained about this broadcast.

    Would this be classed as cannibalism? In my opinion, yes.

    I've not heard of this before.
    Yes in my view it's cannibalism too. Because cannibalism means eating your own kind, so eating any part of the human body is cannibalism.

    No I wouldn't eat it, especially dog or cat. I have a dog as my pet, ffs. How do these Koreans or whatever Asian people who eat dogs do it? They keep them as pets, play ball and walk them in the park, and then prepare them for dinner? Totally savage, disgusting habit.

    They make a difference between company animals (pets), and animals bred for food. The dogs are bred for food in batteries, like cattle or chicken are bred in European countries. The pets aren't killed for food, only the ones bred especially for that.
