Memory Lane Monday: UN-Bugs Are the New White Meat

Hungry?Hungry, why wait? To start off October with the right amount of ick factor, our staff felt that touching base with the United Nations was the way to go.

Yes, even from before there manifesto to tyranny Agenda 21 insects were long on the UN’s menu (not for the representatives themselves of course, but for everyone else), but the cockroach campaign received new vigor when former UN Secretary General Kofi Annan championed the concept to The Guardian back in May of 2015.

Between condemning global warming skeptics and hocking Millennium Development Goal Six, Mr. Annan put on his chef’s hat for a moment during the interview and said, “A growing population and a rapidly growing middle class are increasing pressure on the traditional protein sources, beef and poultry meat, making it more difficult to meet demand. We cannot continue the way we are producing and consuming meat. Obviously, this should not go as far as governments telling people what to eat.”

Oh, obviously.

“However-”

However?Kofi Annan, the low rent Morgan Freeman.

“However, keeping meat consumption to levels recommended by health authorities would lower emissions and reduce heart disease, cancer, and other diseases and of course there are alternative sources of protein. For example, raising insects as an animal protein source. Insects have a very good conversion rate from feed to meat. They make up part of the diet of two billion people and are commonly eaten in many parts of the world.”

Well, hey if two billion people already do it, why shouldn’t the West be forced to do it too?

Then Kofi Annan finished with, “Eating insects is good for the environment and balanced diets.”

Balanced diets? Wait, Kofi, are you saying that maggots might be the next kale?
