Modern food fads are beginning to bug me

Sometimes when I read those glossy magazine articles about latest nutritional advice I wonder how we ever got by as children without almond milk and soya milk and all those other oddball milks you're encouraged to use to wash down your spiralised courgette 'spaghetti'. And now a new one - cockroach milk. (This has to be fake news, surely). Reports claim it is protein rich.

And, says one company marketing the stuff: "It is the nature-friendly, nutritious, lactose free, delicious, guilt-free dairy alternative of the future."

Delicious? I'll take your word for that. And never mind the obvious yuk factor. How do you milk a cockroach?
