Entomophagy, the consumption of insects as food, has been gaining popularity, and last week Inhabitat stopped by an event where curious New Yorkers were trying out the trend and tasting some crunchy cricket canapes. Click here to see our video with reactions from these brave foodies, and tell us in our poll below whether or not you would be willing to embrace bugs as a food source.

Would you incorporate insects into your diet?

  • 139 Votes Sure, I would try it as a healthier, more sustainable source of protein.
  • 66 Votes Yech - no, thank you.
  • 67 Votes Maybe, but they would have to be transformed to the point that I didn't recognize them as bugs.

    Imagine a world where this too was normal, on top of all the other animals and insects we continuously murder every second, for supposed health benefits, (which are non existent). What will be next? Will we start eating our pet parrots, dogs, mice and cats? Humans are herbivores (we don\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\’t have claws, we grind our food etc). There is sufficient variety of plants on earth. We do not need to kill our fellow earthlings for food! Becoming vegan is the answer!
