Everyone! Eat Bugs

By Landon
We Americans don't like bugs. We don't like to touch them, let alone eat them. There are people around the country who think eating bugs will save the planet. Their theory is that bugs don't waste energy to raise. Cows, however, have a lot of energy put into them that causes greenhouse gasses, and it is said that a cow's burp can damage the ozone layer. Bugs can just live off of the plants we grow around town. Also, bugs are said to be rich in protien and other helpful minerals. Hamburgers don't carry such ingredients. The only downside to this, though, is that bugs can cost up to 100 dollars a pound. Wow!

I have eaten a few teriaki crickets and found them to be fairly enjoyable, although a bit too crunchy. I am not sure I could eat a bug as large as the ones shown with your article.
