Charlies Bug Persuasive Writing

This activity was about persuasive text. We have to write our point of view here is mine. This piece was about if we should or should not eat bugs in our diet.   point of view - I think we should eat bugs

Why people should eat insects

You might look at bugs and scream, especially if you see one in your food, but actually around 2 billion people eat bugs. Mostly people from poor countries, and some cultures eat bugs for all meals! I Think that eating bugs is a good idea because it is way healthier than livestock, it is really cheap to farm or even free, and it causes less greenhouse gases than farming meat!

Firstly farming bugs is very cheap because it take 22000 Liters of water to farm 1 kilogram of Beef ,  3500  Liters of water to farm 1 kilogram of pork, 2300 liters of water to farm 1 kilogram g of chicken and It takes 1 liter of water to farm 1 kilogram of cricket. Secondly Bugs are a lot more edible then chicken of beef. You can eat 80% of a bugs while you can eat 50% of a chicken and 40% of cow, and guess what it takes 200 square meters to grow 1 pound of beef and it only takes 15 square meters to grow 1 pound of cricket.
Now if you compare 100g of cricket compared to 100gs of meatScreenshot 2016-09-13 at 12.23.05 PM.png     you might  find that they have almost the exact amount of protein in each of them . Also crickets contains a lot of vitamins and minerals like calcium,  zinc and iron Screenshot 2016-09-13 at 12.39.21 PM.png        

Also similar the ,mealworm contains mostly fibre as well.

Cricket is and lots of other bugs are also good to eat because of the greenhouse gases. When farming cows there are lots of greenhouse gases.greenhouse gases are caused when the cows fart. Also bugs don't fart or maybe only a little bit .
