Man-eating myth?

I don't usually read this newsgroup, so forgive me, etc. etc.

A number of years ago I read a book called "The Man-eathing Myth"
by an anthropologist who basically said that he could find no
evidence that any culture had ever sanctioned cannibalism.

I'm wondering if this is the generally accepted view in anthropology
today, or has he been refuted. I'm having an argument with some
friends about this who find it hard to believe.
