    Cheese made from human armpit

    Scientists have made cheese from their own body bacteria and called it Selfmade.
    This article was first seen here and written by the The Independant UK.

    Some cheese, stinky feet and armpits really do share a common aroma at times and it's no joke.

    'That’s exactly what American scientist Christina Agapakis and Norwegian scent expert Sissel Tolaas have done as part of an exhibition about synthetic biology in Dublin.
    Together with chef Michael Pollan, they took bacteria from curator Hans Ulrich Obrist’s nose, a sample from Eliasson's tears and dug out a culture from Pollan's belly button.
    They then made the cheese, 11 in total, which according to Agapakis actually smell and taste like the body odour of the donor.
    She told design magazine Dezeen: “It's no surprise that sometimes cheese odours and body odours are similar,” she explained. “But when we started working together we were surprised by how not only do cheese and smelly body parts like feet share similar odour molecules but also have similar microbial populations.” '

    Can you image it? I can't believe that it is so easy to just make cheese. And from any old area on your body that carries bacteria - the mind boggles (eeeuw).
    The funny thing is that the cheese itself looks rather good and being a huge lover of the fromage, it still doesn't turn me off.
    I'd love to see the exhibition and find out more. The project is called 'Selfmade' and the exhibition is being held in the Science Gallery in Dublin, Ireland. A little far away, but if you're in the area, is open until January 19th, 2014 and is called: Grow Your Own - Life After Nature.
