UN Advocating Bugs as Food

In many parts of the world, insects are an accepted part of the cuisine, and it would behoove Westerners to welcome bugs into their diets as well. A report from the UN Food and Agriculture Organization concludes that insects are "underutilized" as food. They are good sources of protein and minerals, and their production produces fewer greenhouse gasses and is less land-dependent than the raising of livestock.

Yes, it seems so. It saddens me most when people accept such things without anger.
