Insects are not food for humans, Nottingham Trent University.

Share this post

The Farming Today of 4 November, 2023 talks about how insect farming is at present allowed for  animal feeds – but this will never be acceptable for most humans.  Sustainable food production needs to think more carefully. Insect farming is NOT NECESSARY  AT ALL  to dispose of food waste etc.,  This is simply not true. There is risk of transfer of disease and this science is simply leading people away from natural traditional nutrition. there is a far better science to transform food waste into fertiliser. We have this science and its seems the rest of the world doesn’t. Prof Emily Burton  from Nottingham Trent University has to be addressed about this. There must be no more broadcasts stating that breeding insects is the only or best way to dispose of food waste. This is misleading society. We will be contacting her shortly.

      The Science is that anyone can easily compost their own food waste, cooked food waste, diseased plant material, obnoxious weeds like Japanese Knot Weed and sanitation waste etc., very easily with with our HH-2 or HH-1 technology.
      It’s a shame BBC won’t give us the airtime to discuss this. They are holding the whole world back from this technology.
