But eating brains could maybe lead to serious health problems, even though scientists are not sure why:

-Cannibals in Papua N G eating human brains got a disease similar to the mad cows in Europe
-Rednecks in the US used to eat squirrel brains, (but there is a lot controversy concerning all this) have a high percentage of the syndrome.

Maybe it has nothing to do with eating brains, but it is strange it just affects brain-eaters.

Maybe hunting baby animals for brains makes more sense as they are presumably less likely to have any  issues in them re parasites/bacteria or whatever. Plus, on a RVAF diet, I suspect one is better protected against parasites than otherwise.
