In the 1950s, the Pentagon conducted a study to find out what people would do at different stages of starvation.
What they discovered was shocking.
After just 10 days without food, 90% of people will steal, pillage and kill for food.
But after a mere 15 days, almost all human beings become cannibal... ready, willing, and...
Even Eager to Eat Their Neighbors!
Nasty stuff right? But at this moment, you are probably quite full. Or, at the very least, you know that your last meal was less than 6 hours ago.
But think about it, in a long-term food shortage, you may not eat for days, possibly weeks.
After just one week without food, hunger will be gnawing away at a person's stomach like a lab rat... fear will be stalking his mind like a serial killer.
But after two weeks, desperation sets in, making people do truly crazy things. Things like theft, murder and yes... even cannibalism.
