The story of the fly and how it could save the world will take you behind the pesky reputation and inside the brain and body of the much misunderstood fly.It investigates the insect as a pest and how man has tried tirelessly, often unsuccessfully) to kill it exploring everything from how it walks on ceilings to how it survives Ice Ages and outsmarts all manner of fly swats, toxins and traps. The book also reveals how, throughout history, innovative humans including Genghis Kahn, Napoleon Bonaparte’s surgeon, NASA, various forensic entomologists and the UK’s National Health Service have harnessed and researched the fly to help mankind.But ultimately it introduces the fly as a future hero that could help save the world.How? By recycling waste nutrients and generating sustainable protein to spare the fish in the ocean and feed the ever-growing number of people on our Earth. That’s a story worth telling. And one worth reading, too.
