Famine can cause a spread of a large group of men cannibalizing each other.  This apparently happened during the Holodomor also known as the “Famine-Genocide in Ukraine”.  During the man-made famine millions of people who reside in Ukraine died from the starvation.  It was also regarded by other countries as the genocide of Ukraine. The death toll was estimated by the scholars at around 1.8-12 million individuals perished on the said famine.  It is said that in order for one to survive, one has to result to desperate measure.  Based on the work of Timothy Snyder’s “Bloodlands: Europe Between Hitler and Stalin”:
“Survival was a moral as well as a physical struggle. A woman doctor wrote to a friend in June 1933 that she had not yet become a cannibal, but was "not sure that I shall not be one by the time my letter reaches you." The good people died first. Those who refused to steal or to prostitute themselves died. Those who gave food to others died. Those who refused to eat corp…
