Ready for some exciting bug-related news? It was recently discovered that one of your favorite insects can produce "milk", and it's surprisingly nutritious.
So just which bug is overflowing with the white, nutrient-rich liquid?
That's right. Someone actually realized that you can milk cockroaches. If you're not currently eating something, keep scrolling to hear more about the scientific breakthrough.
Cockroaches have been around for a VERY long time.
So long, in fact, that the first reported appearance of them dates all the way back to 320 million years ago.
These scrappy little pests have serious staying power, and we’re guessing they’re not going anywhere anytime soon.
For most people, the discovery of an infestation of cockroaches in one's home leads to an immediate call to the exterminator.
There’s something so repulsive about them that just imagining one crawling across your kitchen counter is enough to make your skin crawl.
They’re also quite hard to get rid of, due to how highly adaptable they are.
So that's why, when a recent report about cockroach "milk" surfaced, people were collectively disgusted.
CNN posted this article to Twitter boasting the newly discovered “superfood”.

Twitter was NOT happy.
Several users responded with screenshots of them blocking CNN.
Others just voiced their disgust on the new discovery.
And can you blame them?
However, getting past the repulsiveness of the study, the information is somewhat amazing.
According to CNN, “the insect milk may someday be transformed into a food supplement worthy of human consumption, new research indicates.”
Could you imagine drinking that stuff?
