The question was not “Should you eat human flesh?” says one historian, but, “What sort of flesh should you eat?”
I love these pieces,
This is not to say that we have moved on from using one human body to heal another. Blood transfusions, organ transplants and skin grafts are all examples of a modern form of medicine from the body. At their best, these practices are just as rich in poetic possibility as the mummies found in Donne and Shakespeare, as blood and body parts are given freely from one human to another.
