You already know with these animals. Cockroaches, one of the animals who have a penchant for wandering around in dirty places. So that automatically makes us regard her as a grubby animal.
The tiny and nimble animals, also can make us run away when they start to fly. But now, think twice before killing cockroaches that you find at home. Because, a team of scientists at the Institute for Stem Cell Biology and Regenerative Medicine India have recently discovered that the cockroaches milk probably be one of the superfoods for us in the future.

As we all knew, most cockroaches indeed breed by laying eggs. But the species of cockroaches Diploptera punctate be the exception. This species is the only cockroaches that reproduce by means of delivery.
D. punctate has a milk containing solid crystalline protein to breastfeed her child. "Initially, we do not believe this is a protein crystals," said Subramanian Ramaswamy, one of the researchers involved in the study. However, further studies of these crystals using X-rays revealed just the opposite.

From these experiments, it was revealed that the cockroaches milk include the most nutritious substances and loaded with calories throughout the planet. Crystals in milk contained fat, sugar, amino acids and other nutrients are four times more nutrients than cow's milk. Thus, cockroaches milk has a great potency to be food for human population that continued grow on Earth.
"This is a complete food," says Ramaswamy referring to the crystal cockroach. In the parent sac, embryo sipping liquids. Then the protein turns into solid crystals in their stomachs.
"Nothing is wasted. Their mouths open while the back is closed," said Ramaswamy when describing embryonic cockroaches. In the mother's pouch, the baby cockroaches rely on the nutrient concentrates to grow in the speed of aliens.
Because these animals do not have nipples, cockroaches milk can not be milked like a cow's milk, but will be processed into a kind of yeast. In addition, the brand "cockroaches" certainly not good in terms of business.
"I do not think people would like it if we tell them, 'We extract the crystals from cockroaches milk and process it became food'," says Ramaswamy.
In addition, further research is needed and a series of tests to determine whether the cockroaches milk safe for human consumption in the long term. *** [EKA | FROM VARIOUS SOURCES | CNN]
