We actually DON'T need more protein... it's a common misconception (brought on by the billions of dollars in advertising the meat and dairy industries spends lying to the public) that we need to eat large amounts of protein, in order to be healthy. You'd actually have to be starving to not get enough protein in "the developing world"- as it's referred to here. Most (unprocessed) foods have protein, including all green vegetables. We ALREADY grow enough food to feed the entire world- but we feed it to cows, who are then slaughtered for food, who don't yield the same caloric intake as if we were just eating the crops ourselves. We absolutely do not need to start "manufacturing" insects on a massive scale- we already have enough healthy and sustainable food that can feed the entire planet.
