Pests or plate-worthy: Should we eat insects to save the planet?
Insects have been part of human diets around the world for centuries — but not in the U.S. Is it time for Americans to consider eating insects to save the planet? In our pilot episode of the Planet Forward Podcast, we speak with Shobhita Soor, CIO of Aspire Food Group, about bug farming and the market for edible bugs. And then Planet Forward Senior Correspondent Katherine Baker, who has an M.S. in Human Nutrition and is an MPH candidate at Columbia University, gives us her thoughts about adding insects to our diets, the health implications, and the environmental benefits.
