Please try not to vomit as you watch the video below, and here is hoping that this is NOT the answer to the world's hunger problem.

Japanese scientist Mitsuyuki Ikeda has been busy playing Dr. Frankenstein -- he's developed a "burger" made from protein extracted from human feces. Yep, you read that correctly, real human poop.

He combined the synthesized protein with soya and added some steak sauce for taste and dubbed it a burger. According to the video, which explains the process, it even tastes like beef. "It's 63 percent protein, 25 percent carbohydrates, three percent lipids and nine percent minerals to make one Turd Burger."

So if the poop burger becomes a thing, will vegetarians eat it or is it considered an animal product?
