The development of insect proteins as a viable food source will get a boost in 2012. With an eye towards food science jobs, the future of food safety, and commitment to progress, the EU has offered 3 million euros (about 4 million US dollars) for a research project with the objective to "exploit the potential of insects as alternative sources of protein."

So instead of killing one pig, you'd have to kill like forty insects? That's just stupid.

Does it involve a lot of torture to the insects like other meat does? I wouldn't promote it either way, but I'd have to know more about how they treat the insects before forming an opinion.
