Insects are eaten on at least three continents.

It may take a little time to get used to the idea of ​​biting into a burger made from crushed crickets or mixing mealworms with fried rice.

However, even if the thought of eating insects turns the stomach, some researchers say that insects should be an important part of our diet.

Although there is rejection in many western countries, human beings have been eating them for a long time thousands of years and in many parts of the world the practice is common.

About 2,000 species of insects are consumed in nations in Asia, South America, and Africa.
