Fancy a diet based on insects?
The research into the consumption of insects as a source of protein has been occurring for years. In some Asian and South American countries, eating insects and certain species of worms is commonplace. For most westerners, this is a foreign concept for we have had access to an abundance of healthy fresh food, even on a small budget. There has been no need to resort to eating insects, regardless of their 'miraculous' protein levels.
You may wonder why this is even a 'thing', maybe you think this is just another fad, or a vegan activist trend that will hopefully fade into a dull memory of the top 10 stupidest ideas in history. Alas, it is not a trend unfortunately, it's a directive from those who control our food, courtesy of the likes of the World Economic Forum and United Nations.
The new protein rich insect diet which is seen creeping its way on all 6 legs through the backdoor into our food products, is well and truly being embraced by our food manufacturers and pushed onto us by climate change evangelists.
From whence does this fad crawl?
The browbeating via the likes of unqualified Greta Thunberg for this new insect-diet, coincides with the farming industry being badgered globally by excessive regulations, as well as the not-so-gentle push for plant-based and lab-grown meat to grace our tables in the near future by the CSIRO. You will eat bugs and maggots, and be happy.
You are what you eat. The next time the media starts pushing insects as a healthy choice of protein, remember the study below. Be sure to check the ingredient list on food packaging, as insect protein is now flooding the shelf products.
Would you care for some Plague with your Parasites?
According to an extremely in-depth study, an entire host of parasites have been found in 81% of insect farms. On 30-35% of these farms, these parasites were found to be pathogenic to animals and/or humans.
Consuming insects is not only a disgusting idea as a potential dietary inclusion, but they are also a dangerous carrier of disease. This research paper on the parasitological evaluation of edible insects and their role in the transmission of parasitic diseases to humans and animals' is absolutely a must read.
