The United Nations have advised starving people to eat more insects which are believed to be rich in protein and low in fat. The world organisation said this will help in fighting global warming, pollution, and hunger.
The United Nations said if this idea catches on it will ultimately be great for small businesses.
According to the UN report, “The concept of eating insects as part of a regular diet is known as entomophagy is already practices by an estimated two billion people.”
Read the UN report below:
“In 2012, the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation named Dr. Aaron T. Dossey’s ‘All Things Bugs’ company the winner of the foundation’s annual Grand Challenges Explorations contest. The group received a grant to pursue its project to come up with viable insect protein options to combat malnutrition in children.
“There are reportedly more than 1,900 edible insect species. The international governing body suggested people try red ants, bees, caterpillars, crickets, grasshoppers, locusts wasps and certain types of water beetles.”
Now, go figure!
