There is a rational, even persuasive, argument for voluntarily eating insects: Bugs are high in protein, require less space to grow and offer a more environmentally friendly alternative to the vertebrates we Westerners prefer, advocates of the bug fare say. However, this topic is not a hotbed of research, so while some data exist — in particular on the protein content of insects — there are some assumptions built into the latter part of this argument.
I’m sorry but the rest of you can save the planet by eating bugs if you want to. I wish to be no part of it at all. If that makes me a bad world-citizen, so be it.
