Eco Wackos Scheme About How to Make People Eat Bugs

A study -- and don't we all love new "studies" commissioned by the leftwing thought-controllers? -- says that people can be made to eat zee bugz, but virst ve must break down zeir zilly psychological aversion to eating zee "disgusting" bugz.

The "disgust factor" must be overcome if insect-based foods are to become mainstream, according to a study.


Hundreds of millions of people in Asia, Africa and Latin America are estimated to already eat insects to some degree.

There are hopes Western attitudes could shift over time, perhaps in a similar way that food such as sushi has become mainstream.

"Insects are a potentially rich source of protein and micro-nutrients and could help provide a solution to the double burden of obesity and undernutrition," said study lead Dr Lauren McGale, from Edge Hill University in Lancashire.

It can solve the problems of both overeating and starvation.

You're not being hustled at all. By the way, becoming trans will solve your psychological problems of aggression and shyness. Both of them!

"Some insect proteins, such as ground crickets or freeze-dried mealworms, are cheaper and easier to farm, often lower in fat and have a lower environmental impact than traditional livestock."

We're still on that "fat is bad" talking point? What is this, 1975? Did you hear that on Merv Griffin?

This is being pushed, as usual, by radical vegetarians. Every time you see a "study" attacking meat, it's by a vegetarian extremist group.

They don't care about human health, only animal welfare.

However, most people are still very reluctant due to preconceptions over taste and appearance.

But the study also found they were significantly more likely to give insects a go if they are ground into a powder.


Only 13% of the 603 people questioned in the UK study said they would be willing to regularly eat insect food.

Some 47% said they wouldn't eat it regularly, and 40% were unsure.

More than 82% of people expected insect food to be crunchy, 64.6% salty, and 62.4% bitter.

Only 24% said they expected to like the flavour, with just 14.1% believing insect food would look appetising.

Younger people also appeared more squeamish - and each year younger was associated with a 2% increase in saying "no" to the idea.

Their plan, I speculate, is to just start using bug powder it as filler in packaged foods and then in ground meats. They will lobby to allow adding it without disclosing to the public that the food contains bug powder. They will claim it's just animal protein -- well, not animal, but protein -- so why should they inform the public that some protein has been added?

That'll help get them over the squeamishness hurdle.

From Beege Welborne.

Apparently, in Germany, they're already adding bug powder without telling customers. People had to set up websites to inform the public of what foods the bug powder is being added to:

And yes -- they've already voted down a proposal to mandate telling the public about bug powder in their food in the Soviet State of Minnesota.
