"During the upcoming holidays, many events will involve traditional foods, such as turkey at Thanksgiving and Christmas. That microorganisms can spoil any of these foods, and thereby the entire party, is well known, but perhaps less obvious is the fact that microbiological processes are involved in the production of nearly all types of food. ... As made clear by the recent Position statement on food security and safety ... microbiologists can have a pivotal role in this important field. The position statement outlines nine research themes through which microbiologists can participate in food safety and security, including the investigation of microorganisms that cause food poisoning or kill crops and livestock, as well as research into the ways in which microorganisms can improve food production."
Interesting overview of the impact of microorganisms in food production and safety.

"Oonincx says that based on these results, insects do seem to put more of their food into growing plump and less into polluting the atmosphere than do traditional livestock. "The species I've looked at so far suggest that insects could be a more environmentally friendly alternative," he says."
But what about bacteria and yeast?
