Human flesh is a consumable item in Fallout: New Vegas.
Unlike its Fallout 3 incarnation, human flesh heals very little health, faring no better than common consumable items like junk food but with a higher amount of radiation. However, in hardcore mode human flesh boasts a high amount of reduction in Starvation, outclassing relatively filling items like brahmin steak, though still being outclassed by common items such as squirrel on a stick and iguana-on-a-stick.
