Fuck the UN, I ain't giving up my bacon for bugs


ROME (AP) — The U.N. has new weapons to fight hunger, boost nutrition and reduce pollution, and they might be crawling or flying near you right now: edible insects.
The Food and Agriculture Organization on Monday hailed the likes of grasshoppers, ants and other members of the insect world as an underutilized food for people, livestock and pets.
A 200-page report, released at a news conference at the U.N. agency's Rome headquarters, says 2 billion people worldwide already supplement their diets with insects, which are high in protein and minerals, and have environmental benefits.
Insects are "extremely efficient" in converting feed into edible meat, the agency said. On average, they can convert 2 kilograms (4.4 pounds) of feed into 1 kilogram (2.2 pounds) of insect mass. In comparison, cattle require 8 kilograms (17.6 pounds) of feed to produce a kilo of meat.

  1. The heads of the U.N. should start by picking the bugs off of each other.

  5. This is old news. I wrote about this idiocy two-three years ago. Nice to see these globalist kleptocrats haven't thought up any new outrages in the interim.

    Bugs will be a step up in the food chain compared to the socialist Bull$hit obama has been feeding us the past 4 1/2 years.

  7. The feed conversion ratio for chicken is also 2:1. When I have too many bugs I release the chickens on them.

  8. Brilliant.

    They demand we eat bugs while burning food for fuel.

    The only thing that should be more of a concern is that this isn't surprising at all
