Do Kids Know Where Dinner Comes From?

Is your child aware of where the food on the dinner table actually comes from? A Japanese television show called Souda, Sakanaya-san e Ikou! (translated: Yeah, Let’s Go to the Fish Market!), decided to test this simple question with a funny and thought-provoking experiment.

For this test, they put a few cooked salmon pieces in an aquarium, and let them swimming inside the fish tank as a new kind of salmon species. After a brief moment of confusion, it seems these kids still understand that what they eat is different from what is swimming in the ocean. Otherwise, can you imagine a world where sliced sashimi swims under the sea, or where chicken fillets run happily in the farm?

Should men be able to give birth to children?

Lisa Mandemaker: Using an artificial womb could lead to more equality between sexes, but also between different family layouts. If men would be able to give birth to children, it would maybe be easier for male same-sex couples to have a child together.
