Food and agriculture organization of the United Nations (FAO) has released the official advice, according to which the inhabitants of the Land proposed to include in your diet insects.

According to the view of FAO, the way people will help to overcome food transient and reduce pollution around the world.

In the guidance notes that in almost all Western countries one of the main obstacles to taking in food such protein source remains the feeling of disgust that people have for insects.

For use in food apply more than 1.5 thousand species of insects, including a number of beetles, caterpillars, bees, ants and wasps.

The organization emphasizes that similar food is particularly a principal source of nutrition for malnourished children, as many insects contain high levels of fatty acids.

In the end, FAO believe that the breeding of insects causes the least harm to the environment than breeding cattle.

Thus, 100 grams of caterpillars contains of 28.2 grams of protein, and beef mince — 27.4 grams. And to gain this weight, insects require 10-12 times less food than paracobitis and areas for their nutrition needs in 8-14 times less than for cattle.

Greenhouse gas emissions while growing mini-livestock, small: 5.5-12.5 times less than in the production of beef.

Now the farm for livestock occupy 70% of agricultural land, and by 2050, the demand for livestock products promises to double up with the trend of the upcoming growth. Because of the food and agriculture organization of the United Nations calls upon the inhabitants of the planet:
"Eat insects".

This call, according to the professionals, has long followed by 2 billion people — almost a third of the population of planet Earth, mostly inhabitants of Africa and the Pacific. From 1,5 thousand edible species of insects in popularity lead beetles, caterpillars, bees, ants, and close the ranking unusual delicacies locusts, crickets and grasshoppers.

In General, Europeans to expand menu interferes with disgust. But progress is already there. So, the government of the Netherlands last year invested 1 million euros in the development of legislative framework for the construction of farm-breeding insects.
