Biologist Make Cheese Out Of Human Bacteria

Though there are few things on this planet that are more delicious than cheese, there's no denying that some varieties taste a whole lot better than they smell. The disgusting truth is that many of the most foul smelling cheeses have on them species of bacteria that are quite similar to the bacteria found on the human body, which explains why unclean individuals are often described as having a 'cheesy' smell. Are you grossed out yet? Because if so, I must warn you that this post is about to get a whole lot more disgusting! As part of an exhibition in Dublin, Ireland called Grow Your Own...Life After Nature, which is all about synthetic life, biologist Christina Agapakis and odor artist Sissel Tolaas worked together to create one of the more revolting art displays of all time, using human bacteria to make their own super stinky blend of cheese. As reported by the Los Angeles Times, swabs of bacteria were taken from the armpits, mouths, toes and belly buttons of volunteers, which the two then added milk to. After spoiling the mixture with a bacteria called Lactobacillus, the samples curdled and were aged with yeast to turn them into different varieties of cheese. The cheeses apparently smell similar to the unique body odors of each of the donors. Thankfully, the cheese wasn't made to be eaten, but rather to make those who gaze upon the display think. "Can knowledge and tolerance of bacterial cultures in our food improve tolerance of the bacteria on our bodies?," Agapakis asks, revealing the reasoning behind the vile creations. I've gotta ask; would you take a bite out of a block of human cheese?

I bought a cheese once, Danish cheese. Got home, went to make a sandwich, opened the package and almost puked. The smell reminded me of when I was a kid and standing in line waiting for the bus and this woman was right in front of me. She was a wreck, a big gash on her head, no bra, dirty allover. And I swear I could smell her vag odour. Got on the bus, the entire bus smelled of her... I gave that cheese to my room mate, he loved it not surprisingly.
