DeeRae I don't necessarily think that's the theme, "..all humans have it in them to survive...". Many that had resorted to cannibalism died. I think it was simply telling their story. It also may have been a way to reintroduce them back into society and their own everyday lives. If an author can put you into the mind of the characters, in this case the team, you can rationalize their choices, their actions. Perhaps it paved the way and provided understanding for society to allow them to resume normal functioning and not be perceived as monsters for resorting to cannibalism. Or maybe it was a money maker? I haven't researched the motives, and it was before my time ;)
