A lot of people think kale is gross, but that's got nothing on what many scientists are calling the next "super food"...cockroach milk. According to the Institute for Stem Cell Biology and Regenerative Medicine in India, the pacific beetle roach produces "milk" made up of protein-infused crystals with three times the energy of the equivalent mass of normal dairy milk. Scientists also say it is rich in protein and more nutritious than almond milk. While mass production is still a ways off, many think the potential for it is there.
