"From the Ted Talk by Marcel Dicke: Why not eat insects?"

Unscramble the Blue Letters

Well in the Netherlands, we have an innovative Minister of Agriculture, and she puts the insects on the menu in her restaurant in her ministry. And when she got all the Ministers of Agriculture of the E.U. over to the hgaue recently, she went to a high-class restaurant, and they ate isctens all together. It's not something that is a hobby of mine. It's really taken off the ground. So why not eat insects? You should try it yourself. A cuploe of yreas ago, we had 1,750 people all together in a square in Wageningen town, and they ate insects at the same moment, and this was still big, big news. I think soon it will not be big news anymore when we all eat insects, because it's just a nomarl way of doing.

It's not something that is a hobby of mine. It's really taken off the ground. So why not eat insects? You should try it yourself. A couple of years ago, we had 1,750 people all together in a square in Wageningen town, and they ate insects at the same moment, and this was still big, big news. I think soon it will not be big news anymore when we all eat insects, because it's just a normal way of doing.
