The reason its not in any books is because it is COMMON SENSE. What book says that mealworms can eat through a lizard's stomach???? The PetCo Care Manual??? What do you think mealworm shells are made out of, steel???? I had a discussion about this with one of my college professors the other day who has a PhD in entomology and he said this THEORY (mealworms eating through lizards' stomachs) was absurd and he thought I was joking when I said people actually believe this. It is true that mealies have a higher-than-average amount of chitin in their shells, but IS digestible, otherwise NO insects would be digestible. You can continue to argue, but it seems to me you keep running into a small thing called REALITY.
