  1. Controversial, but I feel like I would try it. It’s not literally cheese someone has pulled out of their belly button. It’s just been cultivated using microbes sampled from there. We eat way grosser thing everyday. Food covered in skin cells, poop bacteria on your toothbrush etc. And at least this would be an interesting experience!
