Cockroach farming is booming in China as the country looks for new, cheaper medicines for its rapidly ageing population, says Malcolm Moore.

Sorry, what meds are derived from cockroaches again?

I wonder how much I can get if I trap the palmetto bugs we got here and ship 'em over to China. *wanders off deep in thought*

'A phantom,' said my Uncle Mycroft, who had just materialised, 'is essentially a heteromorphic wave pattern that gains solidity when the apparition converts thermal energy from the surroundings to visible light. It's a fascinating process and I'm amazed no one has thought of harnessing it - a holographic TV that could operate from the heat given off by an average-size guinea pig.' ~ First Among Sequels, Jasper Fforde

But they have become popular in China not for their taste, but for their medicinal benefits.

So are the Chinese actually using it themselves or are they making cheap tat medicines to sell to us?

In an ideal World a law would be passed were NO guns were allowed and all those out there destroyed, trouble is the law makers are not going to take a risk of trying to pass that without making sure they are armed first.
