Okay...don't read the following on a full stomach! This article will be quite helpful in achieving your dieting goals! LOL
"It's been estimated by an Ohio University fact sheet that we actually eat 1 to 2 pounds of insects each year, unintentionally. In every 18-ounce jar of peanut butter, there can be as many as 150 insect fragments and five rodent hairs. A typical chocolate bar could have as many as 36 insect fragments and about half a rodent hair and still be sold in supermarkets. An average of 225 or more insect fragments and 4.5 rodent hairs per 225 grams in an 8-oz serving of pasta. A 2-pound bag of wheat flour can have as many as 1,344 insect fragments and 18 rodent hairs!"
