Nashville, TN (PRWEB) May 16, 2013
According to the Huffington Post and other media outlets, a new United Nations Report from the Food and Agriculture Organization states that insects can be eaten by humans, pets and livestock to help alleviate the problems of world hunger and malnutrition.
The report says that 2 billion people are already supplementing their diets with insects such as grasshoppers, ants, beetles, crickets, caterpillars and many others, some of which are high in protein and minerals including copper, iron, magnesium and zinc, and are a source of fiber. If more people were to consume insects as part of their diets, there would be fewer food shortages, the report claims.
Food4Patriots, the supplier of emergency food suitable for long-term storage, survival and emergency preparedness, is all for ending world hunger, but believes that most people would be better served by stocking up on foods that are more filling than bugs.
The company will launch soon to help people prepare for emergency situations. Some of the foods that will be included in Food4Patriots’ 72-Hour Emergency Kit, 4-Week Emergency Kit and 3-Month Emergency Kit are granola, oatmeal, potato soup, chicken rice, chili, beef stroganoff and minestrone.
Those who order one of the Food4Patriots Emergency Kits will also receive four reports: “The Top 10 Items Sold Out After Crisis,” “The Water Survival Guide,” “The Survival Garden Guide” and “How to Cut Your Grocery Bills in Half.”
Most do-it-yourselfers know that dehydrating food and then storing it properly is a good way to build a supply of emergency food. Check out this Power4Patriots blog post to learn how to build a food dehydrator.
