Dear Dave:

That's the key word, "desire."  There is no need for animal protein, only
desire.  Have you ever considered the fact that when Tenochtitlan's citizens
were being seized upon by the enemy, having the water and food supply cut off
for over 70 days, that even during a terrible crisis like the spanish siege,
the citizens of Tenochtitlan, staring death in the face, STILL had no
"desire" to indulge upon human flesh even when the practice of human
cannablism could have been justified considering the circumstance, for
example the Donner party?  So much for your hypothesis...
