|For an overview of human flesh in the Fallout series of games, see Human flesh.|
Human flesh is a consumable item in Fallout: New Vegas.
Unlike its Fallout 3 counterpart, 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.
