“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!

Probably. This is a quite intriguing result reported at the most recent Experimental Biology meetings in Chicago.
“For (this) study, the researchers analyzed the genetics of 818 men and women of European ancestry and gathered information about their diet using a questionnaire. The researchers found that the genes they studied did play a significant role in a person’s food choices and dietary habits. For example, higher chocolate intake and a larger waist size was associated with certain forms of the oxytocin receptor gene, and an obesity-associated gene played a role in vegetable and fiber intake. They also observed that certain genes were involved in salt and fat intake.”
