Eating insects !
What does come to your mind?
Probably you can’t imagine it. But if you read this article, then maybe you think differently.
First, you know that eating insects is very usual in many countries, but why do we can’t think about it? In fact it depends on our food culture and you know that every country has it’s own culture. For example for us, eating the head of sheep is very usual and most of us think that it is very delicious, but in many countries, people can’t even imagine it. I saw a list that showed it’s the fourth worst food in the world. it shows that what we eat is based on our culture.
Second, why do we must think about eating insects? Is it necessary?
Yes. It is very important, because:
1- there are about one billion people in the world that they don’t have enough food to eat and it will grow up to two billion people in 2050. So by nurturing insects human can solve this problem and help poor people to eat.
2- insects have many times more protein in their bodies. So by eating insects we can help our bodies to grow better and be healthier.
3- insects have no chlostrol in their bodies and so by selecting them as our foods we will decrease the probability of heart and brain attack and live healthier.
4- every one can nurture insects in even one 12 meter room. So it means that eating insects can help people to have their own jobs. In fact by producing food from insects for 1 billion people, we can have 100 million more jobs in all of the world.
5- insects produce meat 10 times more than cows and sheeps. It means that by using equal amount of food to feed cows and insects, you will have 10 times more meat from insects than cows.
6- insects drink 10 times water fewer than cows so it can help us to protect our water resources.
7- the UNITED Nations selected 1800 types of insects which are completely healthy. So if we have a healthy way to grow them we can have super healthy food.
What do you think? Does it make you feel different? Now, Can you think about eating insects?
Do you want some kind of food that have more protein and less chlostrol?
Do you want to participate in having more jobs in the world?
Do you want to help poor people to have food?
Do you think that it’s necessary to investigate all the sides of an element and then judge about it?
I will be glad if I receive your opinions!
Thank you very much.
