Can eating insects help save the world? Food Adventurer Stefan Gates thinks so and talks about insect-eating benefits in his new documentary Can Eating Insects Save the World?

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7DS6p8lbZVc

According to Gates the 5 reasons to eat insects are:

  1. There are no emotional strings attached
  2. Insects are very nutritious
  3. Insects as food offer a great variety of flavor and texture
  4. Sustainability–their capacity to endure is evident to any human being that has encountered them
  5. If we were willing to eat them, we could end world hunger

Hmmm. I just don’t know if I could do it. I like the idea of solving world hunger, but those guys don’t look very appetizing to me.

What do you think? Would you be willing to make the switch to insects?
