5 Compelling Reasons You Should Eat More Insects (Especially Crickets)

Wed, 2016-02-03 13:56

The very thought of eating insects grosses people out. The image of a creepy, crawly, bug working its way down your windpipe doesn’t exactly conjure up feelings of the contentment we feel with other foods.

But why not? How is it that a cow, pig, chicken, or fish seem more appetizing than other creatures?

In fact, 2 billion people worldwide eat insects regularly as a food source, and North America is JUST starting to catch on.

I have been blessed. Don't think that I don't recognize it. I do. I'm still insanely driven and hyper-entrepreneurial, so I'm not always satisfied, but I am grateful. I get to spend a lot of time with people that many business leaders would spend fortunes to connect with. Over the years, I've done my best to give back as well. Nothing is more fulfilling than speaking to students who are interested in business, innovation, technology and marketing. I happen to live in the same city as McGill University.

Referring friends and associates for job vacancies can help to create a diverse workforce, a new study from the Desautels Faculty of Management at McGill University finds.
