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."</div>

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.
