All About Mummification And Cannibalism

105 Words1 Page
Chapter 10 is all about mummification and cannibalism. Roach explores cannibalism within many different cultures. A man from Arabia died after only eating honey for a whole month. After he died, his body was saturated in honey for a year. His remains then worked well to heal wounded limbs. However, this can only work if the person died unexpectedly. Roach is interested by the idea that economics plays a big role in why humans don’t usually eat each other. Roach says that humans are demanding and expensive since they end up needing more food to feed them than what one would gain by eating them.
