I’ve heard of alternative medicine, but…

I deal with a lot of different perspectives on health… from people who are diligently devoted to modern medical practices to people who are folk practitioners. This one gave me a surprise, though…

62-year-old William Provost, 51-year-old Dennis Ratcliff, and 36-year-old Michael Dore are accused of eating people for medicinal purposes

According to the Miami Gazette, police found three men who had been practicing ritual cannibalism to self-treat diabetes and depression. It appears they have been doing this for some time, targeting homeless people who would not be easily missed.

Police were responding to a noise complaint and arrived to find the stereo blaring the Enya song, Only Time.

So, just to be clear. I’m OK if your personal medical practices lean toward use of herbs and such, unless you are playing shake-and-bake with your fellow humans.
