A restaurant in Tokyo, Japan, recently becoming the first in the world to legally offer human meat to diners is fake news. There is no truth to a report that a Japanese restaurant would be opening itself to costumers to taste in the delicious meat served up from humans.
Where did this fake news originate? Social media users shared a fake news article reporting that the people in the city of Tokyo would be able to experience human flesh in a restaurant:
But as far as the ambition and the aberration of the Japanese have come, to go so far as to eat their neighbor. In the city of Tokyo (Japan) the first restaurant in the world that legally offers human meat was inaugurated.
A scary restaurant nicknamed “The Resoto ototo no shoku ryohin”, which means in English “Edible Brother”, opened its doors to the Japanese public and from all over the world, where it offers its customers a varied menu where prices vary from 100 up to 1000 euros, that is to say the dish with human flesh, more expensive would be 1193 US dollars.
International news sources have reported that a tourist from the country of Argentina, was the first man to eat human flesh in the “Edible Brother”.
This diner I think the following: “It seems like eating pork, in this restaurant they cook the meat with spices, so the taste goes unnoticed.”
In Japan since 2014 a law was approved that allows the consumption of human flesh, obviously conserving conditions such as the sanitary level of this and the origin. However, there is no doubt that at least 99% of the world population would not agree with these grotesque acts, so to speak.
And the question we all ask ourselves, how do they get the meat?
The people before dying decide to sell their bodies to the peculiar restaurant, approximately for about 30 thousand euros or 35,799 dollars, this is the balance that those interested can leave their families, logically they are the only ones who can claim the money.
Only people who die young can sign the contract, in which they are subject to a special diet, where the meat is suitable for consumption.
And would you be willing to sell your body to be consumed after your death?
However, there is no truth to the above story, according to Snopes. Their research noted that the fake story had its origins in another language when you consider its abrupt opening and use of stilted English. Snopes explained that the fake news originated from La Voz Popular, a Spanish-language satirical publication, which published the fake news on July 12, 2016.
Here are some examples of people sharing the fake news on social media.
