Insane (But True) Benefits of Eating Bugs You Need To Know

If you’re someone with entomophobia (a fear of bugs) or you just don’t like them, the thought of eating bugs is sure to creep you out; you may even start to feel sick to your stomach. Depending on your culture, eating bugs may be as common as eating meat, or it may be a delicacy. Entomophagy is the practice of eating bugs, and surprisingly about 2 billion people eat them each day.

For those of you who do not eat bugs the question is: should you eat bugs and what are the benefits of eating them? This video from TED-Ed is pretty convincing. It explains how eating bugs dates back to our ancestors, yet over the years we’ve become urbanized and have lost our taste for bugs.

Starting around the 1:45 mark, you’ll see that there still are some areas in the world where eating bugs is culturally acceptable. Be sure to watch the entire video to see some international bug recipes; around the 2:25 mark you’ll start to learn the health benefits of these little critters. Would you believe that most edible bugs are contain much more iron than beef?

Personally, I just cannot see myself eating any type of bug, no matter how nutritious it is. How about you? In due time, do you think entomophagy will make a comeback?
