Consuming human blood


We have learned about the prohibition against consuming animal blood; we are also prohibited from consuming human blood.

One whose own mouth is bleeding inside is not required to spit out that blood. However, if blood from his mouth gets on food that he is eating, he is required to scrape off the bloodied portion of the food rather than eat it.

(Shulchan Aruch Yoreh Deah 66:10)

Have a great day,
