Human cannibalism

Human cannibalism is the act or practice of humans eating the flesh or internal organs of other human beings. A person who practices cannibalism is called a cannibal; the expression cannibalism has been extended into zoology to mean one individual of a species consuming all or part of another individual of the same species as food, including sexual cannibalism. The Island Carib people of the Lesser Antilles, from whom the word "cannibalism" is derived, acquired a long-standing reputation as cannibals after their legends were recorded in the 17th century; some controversy exists over the accuracy of these legends and the prevalence of actual cannibalism in the culture. Cannibalism was practiced in New Guinea and in parts of the Solomon Islands, flesh markets existed in some parts of Melanesia. Fiji was once known as the "Cannibal Isles". Cannibalism has been well documented around the world, from Fiji to the Amazon Basin to the Congo to the Māori people of New Zealand. Neanderthals are believed to have practiced cannibalism, Neanderthals may have been eaten by anatomically modern humans.

Cannibalism was practiced in the past in Egypt during ancient Egypt, Roman Egypt and during famines such as the great famine in the year 1201. Cannibalism has been both practiced and fiercely condemned in several wars in Liberia and the Democratic Republic of the Congo, it was still practiced in Papua New Guinea as of 2012, for cultural reasons and in ritual and in war in various Melanesian tribes. Cannibalism has been said to test the bounds of cultural relativism because it challenges anthropologists "to define what is or is not beyond the pale of acceptable human behavior"; some scholars argue that no firm evidence exists that cannibalism has been a acceptable practice anywhere in the world, at any time in history, although this has been debated against. Cannibalism has been practiced as a last resort by people suffering from famine in modern times. Famous examples include the ill-fated Donner Party and, more the crash of Uruguayan Air Force Flight 571, after which some survivors ate the bodies of dead passengers.

Additionally, there are cases of people suffering from mental illness engaging in cannibalism for sexual pleasure, such as Jeffrey Dahmer and Albert Fish. There is resistance to formally labeling cannibalism a mental disorder; the word "cannibalism" is derived from Caníbales, the Spanish name for the Caribs, a West Indies tribe that may have practiced cannibalism, from Spanish canibal or caribal, "a savage". It is called anthropophagy. In some societies tribal societies, cannibalism is a cultural norm. Consumption of a person from within the same community is called endocannibalism. Exocannibalism is the consumption of a person from outside the community as a celebration of victory against a rival tribe. Both types of cannibalism can be fueled by the belief that eating a person's flesh or internal organs will endow the cannibal with some of the characteristics of the deceased. In most parts of the world, cannibalism is not a societal norm, but is sometimes resorted to in situations of extreme necessity.

The survivors of the shipwrecks of the Essex and Méduse in the 19th century are said to have engaged in cannibalism, as did the members of Franklin's lost expedition and the Donner Party. Such cases involve necro-cannibalism as opposed to homicidal cannibalism. In English law, the latter is always considered a crime in the most trying circumstances; the case of R v Dudley and Stephens, in which two men were found guilty of murder for killing and eating a cabin boy while adrift at sea in a lifeboat, set the precedent that necessity is no defence to a charge of murder. In pre-modern medicine, the explanation given by the now-discredited theory of humorism for cannibalism was that it came about within a black acrimonious humor, being lodged in the linings of the ventricle, produced the voracity for human flesh. A well-known case of mortuary cannibalism is that of the Fore tribe in New Guinea, which resulted in the spread of the prion disease kuru. Although the Fore's mortuary cannibalism was well documented, the practice had ceased before the cause of the disease was recognized.

However, some scholars argue that although post-mortem dismemberment was the practice during funeral rites, cannibalism was not. Marvin Harris theorizes that it happened during a famine period coincident with the arrival of Europeans and was rationalized as a religious rite. In 2003, a publication in Science received a large amount of press attention when it suggested that early humans may have practiced extensive cannibalism. According to this research, genetic markers found in modern humans worldwide suggest that today many people carry a gene that evolved as protection against the brain diseases that can be spread by consuming human brain tissue. A 2006 reanalysis of the data questioned this hypothesis, because it claimed to have found a data collection bias, which led to an erroneous conclusion; this claimed bias came from incidents of cannibalism used in the analysis not being due to local cultures, but having been carried out by explorers, stranded seafarers or escaped convicts. The original authors published a subsequent paper in 2008 defending their conclusions.

Cannibalism features in the folklore and legends of many cultures and is most attributed to evil characters or as extreme retribution for some wrongdoing. Examples include the witch in "Hansel and Gretel", Lamia of Greek mythology and Ba


Du-par's is a diner-style restaurant chain based in Los Angeles, California. The first Du-par's was founded in 1938 at the Los Angeles Farmers Market by James Dunn and Edward Parsons, who combined their surnames to create the restaurant's name. After 20 years of ownership, the Oberst family sold the chain in 2004 to an investor group led by W. W. "Biff" Naylor, the son of noted California restaurateur Tiny Naylor, for an undisclosed amount. At the time of the sale, there were three locations, the original location at the Farmers Market, Studio City, Thousand Oaks. After 31 years, the Du-par's location in Thousand Oaks was closed and was slated to be replaced by a shopping center, it houses a The Pizza Cookery restaurant. Du-par's expanded in 2009 to include several locations from the bankrupt Bakers Square chain. A Bakers Square location in Oxnard was converted into a Du-par's in February 2009; the Oxnard location closed in August 2012. Du-par's expanded into San Diego by converting a former Bakers Square location in the Midway district in 2009.

The San Diego location was closed in September 2015 and reopened in the Gaslamp Quarter in August 2016. The Gaslamp location was closed six months in February 2017. In 2014, it was announced that Du-par's was taking over a former Hamburger Hamlet location in Pasadena. In 2010, Du-par's expanded for the first time outside California by opening a restaurant-bakery in the Golden Gate Casino in Las Vegas, Nevada. A second Las Vegas-area location was opened in the Suncoast Hotel and Casino in April 2016; the Du-par's Restaurant & Bakery inside the Golden Gate Casino closed for financial reasons on February 7, 2017. In March 2017, Boyd Gaming, the owners of the Suncoast Hotel and Casino, signed a licensing agreement with Du-par's to take over the management of the Du-par's restaurant inside their casino while still continuing the use of the Du-par's name and recipes.
