    Do you eat spiders in your sleep?

    Do you eat spiders in your sleep?




    Nope, says MythBusters. There's no evidence that spiders secretly crawl into our mouths while we're sleeping. Even if you were lying perfectly still, your breathing would scare a spider off, so it's unlikely to hang out around your mouth.
    Alas, the bad news: You probably consume more spiders when you are awake -- in your food. Here's why: The Food and Drug Administration guidelines allow a certain level of whole insects or parts in some food products, such as those containing fruits or vegetables. Yum.

    I do remember finding what I think was a moth in a fig newton once. It wasn't Nabisco if it matters.

    Took food science at ISU and learned of all of the stuff thats allowed in food. Rat hair, bugs, etc. Its interesting, but its no different than it has been since the dawn of man.

    I think there is also an FDA percentage for allowable feces in food. I agree with Bos though, our food is way, way safer than it has ever been.

    I still think its funny how other countries can have markets with raw meat hanging in the sun and flies all day like its no big deal. But we cant leave processed turkey on the counter for longer than a half hour.
