Hello and welcome to episode 84 of Elmar´s Tooth Talk: The missing link to total health.
In today’s episode, we investigate the United Nations and other questionable NGOs’ food agenda that tells us to eat insects and other critters to save the planet and end starvation.
They claim we are facing world hunger even though the earth presently produces more than enough food to feed everyone.
We must face that poor nutrition causes almost half the deaths worldwide of children under the age of five!
One could however argue the problem doesn’t really lie in food production rather than its distribution as well as education and some even say there is corruption in the food industry….. But that would obviously be conspiracy theory and we are not buying into such things, aren’t we? Until proven true, of course?
What’s in it for you in this episode:
We talk about:
- WHAT are the benefits of eating critters
- HOW can 2 billion people be wrong
- WHY critters are good for us
- THE Good, the Bad, and the Ugly when it comes to eating insects
- WHAT is the agenda behind all of this
- WHY Hegel’s dialectic of Problem, Reaction, Solution is more apparent than ever
For many of us it is definitely hard to overcome our innate aversion to creepy crawly things.
I guess just the thought of insects in the same cupboard where we store our food disgusts many of us.
Isn’t it repulsive? A sign of filth and uncleanliness. Why would anyone want to eat them?
But is it really as outrageous, as horrendous, and disgusting as one may imagine?
Well, turns out, the consumption of insects as food for humans and animals is a widespread practice in many parts of the world especially in Africa, Asia, and Latin America.
In these parts of the world insects are an integral part of traditional eating habits.
It is considered that approximately two billion people worldwide complement their diets with insects.
Europe seems to be lacking behind in this trend but even here, this practice seems to be benefiting from growing popularity.
The insect species reported to have the greatest potential for use as food and/or feed in Europe include houseflies, mealworms, crickets, and silkworms.
Despite the fact that two billion people are already consuming them, relatively little is known about these little critters.
Okay, we know about their potential nutritional value but are they really safe to eat if we can get past the yuck factor?
Let’s have a look and check-out the good, the bad, and the ugly when it comes to edible insects.
Insects are great sources of nutrients.
- 100 gram of grasshoppers averages 20 grams of protein which equates to more than 50% of your recommended daily allowance. That is the RDA’s opinion
- Now if you want to build muscle mass this amount is far away from you reaching your goal.
- To build muscle mass you need between 1.2- and 2.2-gram protein per kg bodyweight.
- Which means if you weigh 75 kg your protein intake should be at least 90 gram per day. This brings you to 450 gram of grasshoppers
- 100 gram of red ants yield a whopping 71% of your iron RDA. That is if you believe the RDA values are actually correct.
As we know proteins are the basic building blocks of our body which help improve weight loss, increase muscle mass, and increase strength.
Combined with iron it becomes a powerhouse forming haemoglobin which is needed to get oxygen to your blood cells.
One could also say, that eating insect meat is resource efficient
100 gram of beef yields the same amount of protein as crickets, but crickets require hardly any water and much less feed, emit only one gram of greenhouse gas per kilogram protein whereas beef emit 2850gram.
There is very little data about how these critters might affect our bodies especially knowing that food allergies are becoming an increasing challenge.
Many insects feed on decaying matter such as rotten food, animal corpses, human waste which all are full of bacteria. Not a very nice thought, isn’t it?
The chitin of an insect has been found to contain small amounts of anti-nutrients such as phytic acid, tannin, and lectins.
And the use of pesticides, fungicides, and other harmful chemicals is pretty much unregulated.
Eating insects is proposed as an alternative to factory farming because it has lower environmental impact.
But all things considered it is not necessarily more humane than factory farming of livestock. It’s actually worse, because it involves killing vastly more animals per unit of protein.
The number of insects required to produce a single meal is orders of magnitude higher than the number of chickens or especially cows required to produce that meal.
You would have to eat about a thousand grasshoppers to equal the amount of protein in a twelve-ounce steak.
And in the long run, once this industry grows and faces pressures to cut costs when supplying bulk quantities to big food corporations, isn’t it likely that the high ideals of animal welfare will go out of the window? If they have even been there in the first place…
The crickets, if mass produced, are probably going to be eating industrial chicken feed or industrial soy,” which means the logic doesn’t change.
And then one day organisations such People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals or Mercy for Animals will conduct undercover investigations that reveal neglected crickets, poisoned grasshoppers and sadistic mealworm farmers.
There is also the question if we want to avoid starvation, is it really about finding a single food to meet our nutritional needs or wouldn’t it be better if we learned to meet those needs by eating multiple foods from multiple sources.
Shouldn’t the way we grow, and harvest food reflect the ecological and biological diversity of the Earth. Therefore, striving for a single food source isn’t this missing the point entirely?
Even the cultures who have already incorporated insects into their diet have done this as one part of a diverse diet but not to replace all other food sources.
And now, after the Good and the Bad there is …
We have to face it, despite our best efforts to avoid eating insects, we have been doing it all along.
Did you know that in any cheese product, you may have as much as 225 insect fragments per each 225 grams?
It’s true! According to the FDA Defect Levels Handbook there are certain natural and unavoidable defects in foods which can be allowed without posing any threat to humans.
Well, after two years of non-sensical, untruthful and homicidal recommendations couldn’t one be inclined to question everything governmental institutions such as FDA, CDC, Health ministries, WHO, UN, Public Health UK, NHS, and so forth and even the Anglican Church, with dignitaries such as Fauci, Tedros Ghebreyesus, or Germans Minister Lauterbach the ongoing lies they are trying to sell us?
Food for thought for sure!
Ok, back to our little critters and The Potential Health Risks
These health risks are mainly due to:
- chemical substances (venom, antinutrients, veterinary drugs used in insect farming, pesticides or organic pollutants present in the environment or diet of insects, etc.);
- physical agents (hard parts of insects such as the sting, rostrum, etc.);
- allergens common to all arthropods (mites, crustaceans, molluscs, etc.);
- parasites, viruses, bacteria and their toxins or fungi.
- farming and production conditions, for which specific regulations need to be set in order to ensure the control of health risks.
- GMO altered
- And of course, any other unwanted ingredients they can’t get into us any other way
Now shouldn’t we question, why these critters for breakfast? Lunch and dinner agenda is pushed into our faces in the first place.
And this is how a story like this could have evolved:
To meet the challenge of feeding the planet in 2030, the United Nations Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) in 2013 has endorsed the large-scale development of insect farming.
Aren’t we again sold a bogus story that the looming food shortages are primarily the result of climate change and the Russia-Ukraine conflict?
Yet in July 2020, The Rockefeller Foundation had already predicted it and was calling for a revamp of the food system as a whole to address it.
“Reset the Table: Meeting the Moment to Transform the U.S. Food System,” published by The Rockefeller Foundation on July 28, 2020, describes how the COVID pandemic caused “a hunger and nutrition crisis” in the U.S. “unlike any this country has seen in generations”
According to The Rockefeller Foundation, the pandemic revealed deep problems in the U.S. food system that need to be “reset.”
“Reset the Table” was published just one month after the World Economic Forum (WEF) officially announced its plans for a “Great Reset,” and many of the contributors to the Foundation’s paper are WEF members.
While the report stresses the need for “healthy diets” and “sustainable” food production, the words “natural,” “organic” or “grass-fed” are absent, so obviously that is not what they are referring to.
Hegel’s dialectic which David Icke is bringing to our attention since many decades:
It goes like this: First create a Problem, which causes a Reaction, and then offer a Solution.
The manipulating body covertly creates a problem and then directs the media to constantly focus on it without offering any alternative.
The problem could be anything from war to financial collapse, a terrorist attack, a pandemic or a food crisis and it is always a false flag operation.
The task of the media is to use its power to create the false perception that a big problem exists, even if it doesn’t …
Once the problem is created you make sure that an individual, a group or an aspect of society is blamed.
Then the people demand something be done about the problem. This will rally the population behind the desperate leap for a solution to the problem.
Something must be done; they cry in unison.
The people who created the problem in the first place then come back in and offer the solution that the people demand.
This kind of solution always involves actions or legislation that never would have passed under normal circumstances.
We must remember that most people screaming for a solution do not know that the problem was artificially created in the first place.
The solution to the problem is always a further curtailment of freedom and an advancement of one or more aspects of the New World Order agenda – whether that is geopolitical expansion, new laws, or the implantation of new societal worldviews.
And with this, I finish today’s episode.
Thank you for tuning in.
See you next time.
