That completely depends on the environment. Living in a civilized country that provides ready access to much cleaner (and albeit better tasting) food and yet choosing to ingest a live insect off your windshield (God knows where else it has been) is a valid reason to LOSE* a certain amount of faith.
Around the world, bugs are eaten by literally billions of people each year. And why not? Lots of them are pretty good for you. Consider this: Most westerners will eat a cow but won't eat a grasshopper--both of these animals eat grass. On the other hand, we pay a premium to eat crabs and lobsters--these are ten-legged monsters that eat slime from the bottom of the ocean. So why the hypocrisy about eating things like grasshoppers?
