RE: Original Research: Investigating The Therapeutic potential of Locally Consumed Grasshopper in Abuja, Nigeria, against Arthritis disease

in StemSocial5 months ago

Wow. That may not be articulate, but it certainly sums up my reaction. I think of all the medicines prescribed to treat arthritis. Every one of them has some nasty side effect. Wouldn't grasshopper eating be so much better?

Maybe I missed this in the essay, but how do we get around the problem of chemical contamination? I know birds are poisoned in different parts of the world because they consume insects that are laden with insecticides.

And congratulations on having your article discovered as a resource. I wonder how often that happens with STEMsocial posts.

Great article, as always.

That's Very true s regarding chemical contamination of this insect. The the probably solution is to use artificially bred ones for health purposes. This will help reduce the chances of chemical contamination.

😆 this is actually the first time I am noticing the possibility of sending tipping people. Thanks a bunch, much appreciated, Indeed!
Tanks a lot.
