Insects Are As Good A Source Of Iron As Beef
New research has found that buffalo worms are a better source of iron than beef, and grasshoppers aren’t far behind.
Insects are an attractive replacement for food animals like cows. They’re high in protein and relatively low in fat, which makes them a healthy option. They also have environmental advantages over livestock, like not needing a lot of land to graze on. And they don’t fart as much as cows, who make the greenhouse gas methane.
