There is a museum everything these days. The latest museum to open may turn you your dinner. It is the Disgusting Food Museum, which opened earlier this week Malmo, Sweden. The new exhibition will allow people to analyze why they love and hate certain foods. It might also lead them to consider alternative food sources. The museum's founder, Dr Samuel West, explained why he created the project. He said he was researching the effect meat consumption and its effect the environment. This made him think alternative sources protein, like insects. He said: "If you ask people if they want to eat bugs, they say 'that's gross.' That's the obstacle, but maybe I can make them reconsider."
The museum is a 400-square-meter space that will challenge four our five senses - smell, touch, sight and taste. The displays include food from the world that some people might think is "disgusting". However, people other parts the world think this food is totally normal and is a regular part their diet. The food exhibits include American favorites such as Jell-O salad and world food like fried tarantula, fermented shark, roasted guinea pigs and sheep eyeball juice. Dr West said we could all eat any food, but our culture tells us what is tasty and what is not. He said: "What we find disgusting has to be learned - it's purely cultural." He added: "One my worries is that it will start stinking here."
