I think that eventually, eating insects would become more mainstream and cease to be something that's only eaten in Fear Factor or by connoisseurs of weird food. I personally have tried eating bugs once. It tasted fine. What got me though was the idea that I'm eating bugs. And how gross it looked.

A lot of Asian countries swear by eating bugs! Not only is it a relatively inexpensive source of protein, there are studies that show it's high nutritional value pound for pound. I personally am not a fan of the things as I'm not used to eating them but they surely bring a lot of value to people in most cultures.

I've been to Thailand and bugs are sold in street carts everywhere! It looked like it was a big part of their diet, kinda like how we treat other animals food sources like fish and pork. I've never heard of a massive health outbreak due to bugs so I'm thinking that it's safe to eat.

Cultures had to adapt to survive back in the day. That's why cuisine always vary from one place to the next, it basically depends on what's available at a particular place. Personally, I am not a fan of eating crickets but I absolutely understand why other people do.
