Cambodians are being urged to stop dining on frogs … because frogs dine on “brown hopper” insects … that dine on rice … and that damaged last year’s crop. Story here.
“Frogs eat insects, so by eating frogs we are helping the insects,” secretary of state for the Agriculture Ministry Chan Tong Yves said by telephone. “The insects come to eat healthy rice because it is delicious. We should stop eating frogs, at least briefly, so the rice can grow.”
