Consumption of edible insects: your choice of better food
Modern food, including beef, pizza, fast food and others with their fat sauces and oily dressings turned out to be really dangerous for our health. They contain too much fat, are too stodgy and too rich in carbohydrates. And yet, we prefer this kind of food at the exclusion of many others. And this is even without taking into considerations that traditional farming requires a lot of water and space and is very harmful for the environment. Meanwhile, breeding of edible insects requires less energy, less water and feed and pollutes nearly naught. And last but not least, they are much more healthier compared to any other sources of animal proteins.
Insect proteins, including those found inside giant worms, are proving to be much better and healthier than those provided by traditional farming. Also, they are much more easy to digest, thanks to their high levels of fibers.
