The Entopod

Perhaps you weren't eating bugs because it wasn't easy enough to prepare them. Well, now there's the Entopod. Designed by Edinburgh student Courtney Yule, the Entopod is a "starter kit" for eating bugs. It includes a grinder for making insect flour, detachable containers for heating the insecto-food in the oven, and more! She hopes it will encourage people to experiment with "entomophagy."

The only arthropods I'm interested in eating are crabs, crayfish and lobsters. The rest are pests.

Ooo, here's some fun stuff!:
An Ohio University fact sheet estimates that we eat from one to two pounds of insects each year, and without knowing it.

Do you know how many rodent hairs, insect fragments and maggots are in the food you eat? The FDA does!:

And yet we're all healthy and happy! (Well, maybe some of you may be a little less happy now, but c'est la vie.)
