This book available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle Format. Edible insects are a paleo-food predating early human. Use of insects for food, particularly for pregnant and lactating mothers and for young children especially around the time of weaning have surfaced continually as important traditional ecological knowledge worldwide. Sustainable, complete, local protein sources are necessary for the world's population to be entirely nutritionally secure. Nutritional security is on the road to peace, and therefore important to all human beings. Recognizing these interconnections is critically important and urgent for reduction of conflict and violence and necessary for world peace. Insects fill the complete nutritional needs of humans and make one of the smallest environmental footprint of other protein sources. Barriers to adoption, however, are significant with this sustainable protein source. In this book we will share a broad-reaching holistic approach for overcoming these barriers. The paleo-history argument for edible insects will be addressed along with the nutritional input and climate change amelioration. These revelations will be available in this book for the world not yet part of the two billion who already are traditional and newly adopted insect consumers. A holistic, inclusive, broad view of why insects and how insects can become widely accepted as a sustainable protein source Environmental impact of edible insects, particularly in tables and infographics where carbon, water, and land use footprints for various protein sources are being compared Nutrition-based infographics that add insects to the tables where other protein sources are being compared A world-wide, culture-specific and culture-general look into the roadblocks and the opening of the gates for insects to become a sustainable protein of choice, particularly among Euro-American cultures and other populations wanting to emulate Euro-American and European cultures
