    Meh i bet the ppl in Africa who are starving wouldn't complain.

    While it seems foul to put it into perspective we do the same thing with sewage water to tap water.

    Unfortunately this seems to ignore all of the other chemicals present in sewage. Not only are there drug residues but also contamination from run-off, household waste etc. Getting rid of the bacteria is trivial by comparison.

    You'd be surprised how much infected meat already goes into your burgers. Check the Food Inc. movie. They treat the E.coli infected meat or other meat that is one or another way contaminated and treat it with amonia. Om nom nom much? Sure its cool that they don't want to waste anything but the question is how reliable are such methods...

    EDIT:
    Lmao, check the video and pay attention to the text on the fridge...

    I had to laugh at the vid you posted Rej. With the side caption about OBL it makes it look like they didn't really bury him at sea. :laugh:

    I mean, I know there's hunger in the world, but it's mostly bad management rather than shortage of food.

    Takes sewage which contains poop, adds more poop.... Takes pointer which acts like a hand, adds hand.... Both of these things seem a bit redundant.

    Poop ferilizes Grass feeds Cow feeds Person creates Poop -> repeat.

    I'll stick with the way nature performs this process, thanks anyway Japan.

    I agree on that one. Export the poo and import the real meat :p

    He he he. I heard this on the local radio station last week and thought it was a bit they were doing. Seeing the fridge, it almost confirms my suspicions. Could be worse though.

    The Japanese think of some pretty screwed up things. If they can conqueror the deep inbred revulsion with eating crap, and the various issues with what sewage actually contains, then more power to them. I think I'll eat chicken.

    America should jump on this. Cheap poo meat exports. I mean we already have the collection systems and the volume of production. This is one thing we could do at least as cheaply as china.

    Right now im very glad i live in Scotland you get some really nice and fresh beef here.

    People in lets just say Ethiopia since i know that has food crisis all the time wouldn't need to worry about eating burgers made from sewage if humans learned to manage distribution and not waste food, IMO food in the developed world food has been made into a product to be sold for profit rather than just a necessity.

    people in ethiopia dont need huge chunks of real or poop meat they need carbs.. but thats beyond the point.. if japan put as much time into curing cancer as they do with robots and poop meat we'd have a cure by now
