If you were to eat yourself around the world, you would learn to relish a variety of insects, and insect larvae even, but only if you left hot dogs at home in America. Talk about food that is "ew", hot dogs are at the top of the list. Food preference is an emotional choice, as much as it is nutritional. Hunger narrows the gap between the two.

Interesting, but I prefer other ways to eat protein.

Isnt there a drink called the grasshopper? That I would try. I would rather eat a crunchy insect than a gooey one, but only after drinking lots of grasshoppers! Are they eaten live? What if they want to crawl back out of your mouth? Sounds like a perfect case of instant vomiting= maybe the bug of choice for bulimics? I'd rather get protein from something else. Are we ruling out cannabalism? Seems like a good source of protein, I am tough and stringy, but maybe some of the plus size folks could make a really juicy steak or two.

With our growing population, we can eat all the insects we want. They will still be around long after we've bred ourselves into extinction.

With the growing population and pesticides we could run out of insects!
