Orthoptera as food[edit]

This section makes blanket generalizations and vague allusions to Biblical tenets. There are no sources cited. A cursory search on the topic reveals there are many differing viewpoints and a complex subject such as this cannot be reduced to two unsourced sentences. (talk) 13:13, 26 September 2008 (UTC)

In Leviticus 11:22 Of them you may eat: the locust of any kind, the bald locust of any kind, the cricket of any kind, and the grasshopper of any kind., so yes the Orthoptera order is considered "clean food". I will add the reference and remove the dispute.```` — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 12:44, 20 December 2008‎
I agree, there are other people who eat them, in South-America for instance. They of course also are used to feed pets. I'm adding this to my TODO list. —PaleoNeonate - 03:54, 8 July 2017 (UTC)
