There is increasing pressure from influential interest groups such as the World Economic Forum to get people to consume insects.
Dutch political commentator Eva Vlaardingerbroek is one of a growing number of critics of the lobby.
– The push for the eating of insects is nothing but a compliance test, she says.
London-based Horizon Insects is a leading company in the insect food industry, an industry that the World Economic Forum, with high-profile globalist Klaus Schwab in the driver’s seat, among others, wants to become the norm on food plates around the world. On its Twitter account, Horizon Insects advertises worms, crickets and grasshoppers for human consumption.

Dutch political commentator Eva Vlaardingerbroek, formerly based in Sweden, has launched a fierce attack on the insect industry via social media, condemning it as a means of trying to humiliate the population.
– It’s a way to degrade and humiliate us and they’re simply trying to see how far they can go.

Vlaardingerbroek says that people around the world must remain vigilant – and resist.

Entomophagy (from the Greek éntomos, "insect", and phăgein, "to eat", meaning insect-eating) refers to eating of insects as food. In nature, the phenomenon is mainly found in the animal kingdom but also refers to human consumption of insects.
