When People Get Extremely Desperate And Extremely Hungry, They'll Literally Eat Just About Anyth

• The Economic Collapse Blog - Michale Snyder

If your family was on the verge of starving to death, to what extremes would you be willing to go in order to get food?  Some of the things that I am going to share with you in this article may make you cringe.  But you need to understand what people are willing to do when they get extremely desperate and extremely hungry, because the global food crisis that has already begun is going to greatly intensify in the years ahead.  Hundreds of millions of people go to bed hungry every single night, and children are literally dropping dead from starvation on the other side of the globe right now.  Unfortunately, most people in the western world don't even realize that this is going on because the corporate media rarely reports on it.  War, pestilence, natural disasters, bizarre weather patterns and historic crop failures are creating a "perfect storm" for global food production.  It is being projected that later this year things will get really bad in some of the poorest areas of the planet, and the long-term outlook is even worse.

When people get hungry enough, they will literally eat just about anything.

On Monday, I was stunned to learn that a team of archaeologists has discovered that settlers at Jamestown in the 17th Century actually resorted to eating dogs in a desperate attempt to survive…

The first English settlers to arrive in North America ate dogs to survive an extreme period of starvation, according to a gruesome new study.

Researchers at the University of Iowa discovered the remains of 16 indigenous dogs at an archaeological site in Jamestown, Virginia, that strongly suggest the 17th Century settlers ate at least six canines.

Their remains showed hallmark signs that the colonists had skinned the animals, dismembered their limbs and removed the flesh from their bones between 1609 and 1617 AD, the team said.
