You Could Be Eating 140,000 Pieces Of Bugs Each Year

YUCK! It’s possible for a person to ear nearly 140,000 bug parts every year!

Terro has released a new study called, Consuming Creepy-Crawlies, with the claim that eating that many is completely safe and normal.

The government allows a small amount of insect material to pass into our food. The exact number depends on what the food is but, in general, processed foods have more insect fragments and foods that are consumed whole have more complete insects.

For example, broccoli and berries have a lot of complete insects hiding in there –- and things like cinnamon, ground pepper, and wheat flour have a bunch of insect fragments.
