Crickets as food

“In just a few years, there will be 9 billion people on the Earth. All those mouths will demand food – and especially animal protein. But the current waste produced by mass farming of beef, pork, chicken and other meats may prove unsustainable for a teeming, hungry human population.  The solution could be bugs, many have argued. They have more nutritional “bang for the buck” – and they could help feed the growing masses, some food experts say.”

In a related note, the local paper today carried an article about the pending retirement of Dr. Tom Turpin, one of the best proponents of bugs (as food and otherwise).  God speed, Tom and enjoy your retirement!

Dr. D.
