Comments Off on INFOGRAPHIC: Why We Should All Eat Insects

Though some may balk at the proposal, eating insects can change the world for the better. They’re efficient to produce, healthy, and absolutely delicious. They take only 8-10% of the resources needed for the production of beef and emit 9% of the CO². Adopting them in our diet can help fight both world hunger & global warming. The Grasshopper Suppliers is a new initiative that’s aiming to kickstart a food revolution by breaking the main barrier preventing it: the cost of edible insects.
