I was thinking about respecting peoples opinions and beliefs. I’m honestly quite confused by this topic. All the time, regardless if it’s family, friends, strangers, or anons, I get negative feedback. I usually hear anything from “you’re taking this vegan diet too far” to “I don’t know what’s happened to you, but you’re becoming very narrow minded”.
All of this has to do with veganism and animal rights. Nothing else. The reason for this? Guilt.
At one point does it become ok to point somebody down based on their opinion? Or better yet, what point does it become ok to take somebody’s life away? I won’t ever understand why somebody could ever want to contribute to the meat, dairy and/or egg industry, or why they would refuse to know the truth. Really think about it - how is it possible to go ‘too far’ by saving a life full of pain and furthermore, murder? I just don’t understand it.
It’s not an ‘opinion’ if you’re taking away a life for your benefit. Not only is that murder, but it’s beyond selfish.
If anyone would like to be my vegan bffl, I’m pretty much a loner, so it’d be really cool to have on real life vegan friend. And I mean one I can’t actually chat with face-to-face.
be kind, rewind (your thinking)
I don’t know what this is from but it seems really good. I love Dr. Masaru Emoto, he is a very smart man. Forget the tap, bottle, distilled, reverse osmosis, or any other crazy way of messing with our water and go find a spring and bottle the water for free using glass bottles!
Vegans think differently—really. Last month, an Italian-based research team published a study indicating that vegans and vegetarians use different parts of the brain in response to images of human and animal suffering than do meat-eaters. The team used MRI scans to investigate whether vegans and vegetarians who specifically made food choices for ethical reasons “might show brain responses to conditions of suffering involving humans or animals different from omnivores.” Well, it turns out we do.
Using MRI, the brains of 60 adults (20 omnivores, 19 vegetarians, 21 vegans) were scanned while they were shown images of human and animal suffering, alternating with natural landscapes. Basically, when compared to omnivores, vegans and vegetarians used different parts of the brain associated with empathy and social cognition in response to images of suffering, especially of animals.
The article is titled “The Brain Functional Networks Associated to Human and Animal Suffering Differ among Omnivores, Vegetarians and Vegans”. Check it out for all the fascinating details.
