Better yet, who was the cheese made from ?

Would you eat cheese made from HUMAN FEET and ARMPITS? Scientists create stomach-churning delicacies using skin bacteria

It's long been known than a smelly pair of feet bears more than a slight resemblance to a block of ripe cheese, but scientists have taken this link to the next level by making cheese from a foot.
Experts have made the stomach-churning creations using bacteria from the human foot as well as a belly button and even an armpit.
Scientist Christina Agapakis and scent expert Sissel Tolaas gathered microbes for their project

The cheese is supposed to reflect the flavours of the humans they belong to.
Like the human body, each cheese has a unique set of microbes that metabolically shape a unique odour.

Each cheese was crafted from starter cultures sampled from the skin of a different person. The bacteria included that harvested from an armpit (pictured), a foot and a bellybutton
Urgh! Would you eat cheese made from human bacteria

The samples of bacteria used in the cheese came from armpits, a foot, a bellybutton and tears and were taken using sterile cotton swabs.
Ms Agapakis told Dezeen: 'Despite [their] chemical and biological similarities, there are obviously very different cultural and emotional responses to stinky cheese and stinky feet.

Ms Agapakis said: 'By making cheese directly from the microbes on the body, we want to highlight these bacterial connections as well as to question and potentially expand the role of both odours and microbes in our lives'

Ms Agapakis and Ms Tolaas say that their project explores synthetic biology through the practices of traditional cheesemaking
'By making cheese directly from the microbes on the body, we want to highlight these bacterial connections as well as to question and potentially expand the role of both odors and microbes in our lives.'
A short film was also created that explains the process of the human cheesemaking, along with interviews with the people who donated bacteria samples.
However, the designers said that the cheese wasn't made to be eaten and instead has been created 'to inspire new conversations about our relationship to the body and to our bacteria.'
