According to the UN, you could be eating bugs earlier than you think
By 2050, the UN expects the world population to reach nine billion, meaning worldwide meat shortages could become a reality.
But never fear — insects are here.
Insect consumption could be the new culinary trend to resolve the meat shortage problem that is expected to occur.
A book published by the Food and Agriculture Organisation (FAO) of the United Nations said entomophagy, or eating insects, has many nutritional and environmental benefits.
The organisation estimates that bugs are currently present in the diet of about two billion people worldwide and is widely practised in Thailand, China, Ghana and Brazil.
