With the great variety of plant and animals on this planet why do we only use such a small number of them for food? Meat is only beef, pork, chicken, lamb, or fish and only a slightly larger selection from the plant kingdom. The consumer can only buy what can be found in stores and stores can only stock what farmers will grow. Isn’t there a large number of species left out that would provide good nutrition that could be raised for food? Thanks.
