UN says eating insects could tackle world hunger…


Published on 13 May 2013

The United Nations says that eating insects might provide one of the answers to global hunger.
There are 19-hundred edible insect species on the planet and 40 tons of insects to every human. Insects are rich in protein, vitamins and minerals and do not damage the environment.
But the UN admits that getting over people’s squeamishness will be a big challenge.

Al Jazeera’s Jessica Baldwin, reports from London.

      Yep! We all could breed our own food source, We could make bluebottle burgers, maggot mayonnaise,as part of the dressing. In fact, we could create anything we wish – with all the varieties of insect at hand. Why did we not think of this before?

      I start to hear alarm bells ring when the UN come up with ideas like this. You live in a 3rd world country, you are starving, and the United Nations have the audacity to tell you that you must eat insects in order to survive, while western countries waste food! It is utterly immoral and disgusting!!!
