Bugs. It's What's For Dinner.
I can't make up crazy stuff like this...
U.N. Conference Promotes Insect-Eating For Everyone From Famine Victims to Astronauts
"Prof. Arnold van Huis, a tropical entomologist known as "Mr. Edible Insect" in his native Netherlands, blamed a Western bias against eating insects for the failure of aid agencies to incorporate bugs into their mix.
"They are completely biased," van Huis said. "They really have to change. I would urge other donor organizations to take a different attitude toward this ... It's excellent food. It can be sustainable with precautions."
I don't care how nutritious bugs are, I won't knowingly engage in entomophagy.
