The latest health trends are always at our reach, but apparently the newest one is at our feet? Literally!
Cockroach milk is the latest "superfood" that experts say is extremely beneficial to humans. The untraditional trend is apparently compromised of the nutrient-rich milk crystals found inside the Pacific Beetle cockroach.
The protein crystals found in the cockroach milk are used as food for infant cockroaches, but new research suggests that it could be beneficial to humans, too, as it's one of the most nourishing and highly caloric substances on the planet. Woah, that's actually insane! According to the article, cockroach milk has a more viable future as a"vitamin pill".
