Eat insects for your health and the sake of our planet
Scientists want us to
eat insects, they say: "Eat insects for the sake of our health and our planet".
of eating insects dates from prehistoric times and is well-documented
in the early writings of most cultures. Even now, insects are
viewed as both a staple and a delicacy by many. Insects can
provide an important source of nutrition for people in many
parts of the world. In regions where drought makes raising
livestock or crops difficult, eating insects makes sense.
