"Yes, but native peoples eat them too, don't they?"
True, but that's a different cricket:
“The problem with eating insects is not that insects are dirty or wrong. There are plenty of cultures that eat them. It is true that some insects are a good source of nutrition. The problem, however, is that the insects they want us to eat are genetically engineered, mass-bred in factories where they are fed inferior food - the cheaper the better - and there is essentially nothing natural about these insects.
The second problem is the motivation why this is done; It is a new revenue model for the food industry that allows them to bypass parties such as farmers. So more profit and a monopoly position. That's why they are destroying the current food industry, to make everyone too dependent on factory food. Undesirable and opportunistic.
The excuse that eating insects will save the earth is a fallacy. If one wants to save the earth, one could put forward many other solutions.
But while people claim that cows should die because their farts destroy the earth, they just continue:
✔︎ Cutting down trees.
✔︎ Expand industry.
✔︎ Pollution of sea, land and air.
✔︎ The use of poison and pesticides.
✔︎ Producing unnatural “food” in factories.
✔︎ The use of refined sugars.
💚 Eat locally as much as possible.
💚 Eat as much as possible what you could make, grow and grow yourself.
💚 Read labels in the store and judge which of the ingredients is food or chemistry.
