Help the Environment: Eat Insects


Want to Help the Environment? Eat Insects: ???Perfumey, tastes like salty apples,??? one says. ???Like a scented candle blended with an artichoke,??? another adds.

The giant water bug, or Lethocerus indicus, a three-inch-long South Asian insect that looks uncannily like a local cockroach, is just one of the items on the menu of this bug-eating bacchanal. The Gastronauts??? meal may seem more like a reality TV stunt than a radical environmental strategy, but Gracer is on a serious mission to shake up how we all think about our food supply.

Absolutely the definitive come-back answer to the eco-environmentalist vegans; having entangled a few here and there, I had to bookmark David Gracer's entomophagic crusade.
