In one of the more unusual programs any Rotarian can remember, David Gracer told why he is a zealous proponent of entomophagy, consumption of insects, which are loaded with protein, vitamins and minerals. Charles Darwin was the first to write about eating insects. He showed us a cookbook, The Insect Cookbook. Insects can be raised efficiently and help solve global food shortages.
David Gracer holds termites in a scene from
a National Geographic special.
He reminded those of us who recoil from eating insects that the crustaceans we eat are bottom feeders eating feces, dead things, while insects eat green things!! We can purchase frozen insects from Thailand in small Asian markets in the city.
David is a lifelong passionate educator, an adjunct professor of writing at CCRI and also teaches at the prison. He has boated to all 51 islands in Narragansett Bay and participated in a 220 mile survival special in Africa where he got most of his nutrition from insects.
