This post on cracked.com (which, incidentally seems to be pretty new but is full of interesting crap like this), about all the crap that is in our modern foodstuffs.
I guess you are supposed to feel gross reading it, and the general bullshit that the food industry tries to pull does rile me a bit, all their 'all natural' and 'no added sugar!' claims despite being full of aspartame and other artifical sweeteners (that make me have migraines) make me angry. But as for eating insects? Well, whilst I wouldn't want to do any 'bush tucker trials' and would never willingly eat a live insect, the thought that red food colouring is made of red beetles doesn't bother me really at all. Nor the shellac thing either. Or the horse tallow being used to cook french fries (in france). I sort of feel like any animal is fair game. If I am going to eat a pig, cow, chicken or sheep, why not a horse? Or a cat or a dog even! If I was required to kill and dismember them, I don't think there is a single animal I would be able to physically turn into meat, but if someone else wants to do it for me and cook something delicious, then I would probably try it. So long as it doesn't look too gruesome once it gets to me. Sure that's a cowardly way of looking at it.
And consumers DO need to wake up and realise that there is all sorts of crap in what we buy and consume. 'sugar free' only means there are sugar substitutes that have half the calories but ten times the cancer in them. That 'natural flavour' is non-commital. And etc.
