Get ready to be convinced that you should be eating insects! Pat Crowley, Founder of Chapul Bars, is this week's guest on What Doesn't Kill You, and he's got his sights set on introducing bugs to the American plate. Chapul Bars are protein bars made using insects as healthy, eco-friendly, and tasty alternatives to unsustainable sources of protein. Pat makes a compelling case for eating insects. Grossed out? Pat and the folks at Chapul are making their protein bars using milled cricket flour, helping the consumer psychologically deal with eating bugs. He remembers a time when sushi seemed foreign to American consumers, and thinks insects are going through a similar phase right now. Could his cricket bars be the new California roll? Could insects solve our unsustainable protein problem? Tune in and get the inside scoop on insects. This program was sponsored by Fairway Market.

"Bugs are an unknown future as far as agricultural products are concerned. If you look at it objectively - it's a no brainer that we should have insects in our diet. the only reason we don't is a psychological one." [03:00]

"All of this has been about spreading an idea and creating change for future generations." [26:00]

Today on Eating Disorder, we talk about strange eating habits. From sword-swallowing to compulsive eating and other disorders. Sword-swallower Fred Kahl joins us on the phone, and psychotherapist Michelle Cleary in studio to discuss how these habits come about as well as the effects they have on people. After the break, Michelle explains more in depth what it's like to deal with an eating addiction by analyzing the role food plays in our host Spyro's life. This program has been sponsored by Heritage Foods USA. Today's music provided by Snowmine.

"We are a culture of people who are looking for comfort and satisfaction in food and feeling good from something outside of themselves. So everybody's reaching...for food, they're reaching for drugs, they're reaching for alcohol." [23:00]
