It was OK for Israelites to Eat Locusts

The book of Leviticus is a pretty tedious read, or listen, as the case may be. I’m interested to learn how many of the prescriptions related to health, germs, and limited medical treatment as it was known at the time. It’s also interesting that locusts were legit to eat. 

Leviticus 11:22-23 NLT

“The insects you are permitted to eat include all kinds of locusts, bald locusts, crickets, and grasshoppers. All other winged insects that walk along the ground are detestable to you.”
