Start your day with a glass of bug juice?


How do you feel about starting your day with bacon, eggs, and a glass of insects?

A new study shows bugs have more antioxidants than orange juice. Certain insects like crickets, grasshoppers and silkworms have five times the antioxidant levels of orange juice.

Scientists say their work could be important in unlocking more insect based antioxidants. They add more testing is needed to fully know the impact of insect antioxidants on humans.
