Throughout history, humans have resorted to cannibalism, the practice of eating human flesh. Bill Schutt author of *Cannibal: A Perfect Natural History,* explains that cannibalism hasn’t always been a last resort to hunger like the crash survivors from the Uruguayan Air Force Flight 571 in 1972 or the famine-driven cannibalism during Mao’s Cultural revolution where families exchanged children so they wouldn’t be force to eat their own. Some of the Solomon Islands, Africa, and ancient Europe saw the eating of human flesh and organs as a natural way of life. “With human cannibalism, what shocked me was how extensive medicinal cannibalism was in Europe for hundreds of years. Human body parts were used right up to the beginning of the 19th century,” he told National Geographic. Schutt says that if modern day culture had not made cannibalism taboo, we would be seeing it much more commonly.The man in his 20’s had beheaded the seven-year-old and was in the midst of eating him when caught.
