UN: Eat Insects, fight world hunger


Insects; just might be the Solution to World Hunger...this is according to  a United Nations Report...
You see,due to prior modern scientific research by the Haya years ago... we in Tanzania were aware of this...

Senene anyone?
The report by the UN Food and Agriculture Organization says that eating insects could help boost nutrition and reduce pollution.
It notes than over 2 billion people worldwide already supplement their diet with insects.
However it admits that "consumer disgust" remains a large barrier in many Western countries.
More on protein and healthy eatingWasps, beetles and other insects are currently "underutilised" as food for people and livestock, the report says. Insect farming is "one of the many ways to address food and feed security".
