The title of a (great) sci-fi film starring Charlton "from my cold dead hands" Heston, made in 1973.

The name comes from a combination of 'soy' and 'lentils'.

The film was (loosely) based on an anti-contraception novel, called 'Make Room! Make Room!', by Harry Harrison.

It is, of course, famously made from people.

Taken from a 70's film. Soylent Green is a supposedly soy and lentil based nutrition source which later turns out to be made out of harvested humans hence the quote "Soylent green is people".

Sometimes used to describe a big and nasty lie told by a large company or goverment.
