BAD NEWS FOR VEGETARIANS:
PLANTS FEEL PAIN
It has come to our attention at THE UNCOVEROR that something startling has
been discovered by Dr. Bill Williams, a botanist at The Helvetica Institute. If
his preliminary findings turn out to be true, they will prove that killing
plants for food is no less cruel than killing animals for food. "Plants are aware," says Dr. Williams, "and they feel
Dr. Williams, and his team were doing experiments on talking to plants. He
had set out to prove that this helped them only because it blows carbon dioxide
over their leaves. He had one team speak lovingly to the plants, and another
threaten and verbally abuse them. To the surprise of all involved, the plants
that were lovingly spoken to thrived, producing large, lovely flowers. Their
growth rates were off the charts! The plants that were verbally abused and
threatened never bloomed. Some even withered and died.
His team then connected EEG electrodes to several plants, and measured their
responses to various stimuli. "They definitely felt it when we pricked them
with needles. One of my staff even burned one with a lighter. Not only did its
EEG go off the charts, but so did every plant in the same room!"
Dr. Williams is submitting his findings to other scientists for further
review. He told me that plants not only seem to be aware and to feel pain, it
looks like they can even communicate. They may even be sentient beings.
me, "I hadn't thought of it until now, but how does a fruit tree know how
to make a sweet attractive fruit that animals will eat when it drops off, and
spread the seeds? How do flowers know how to attract bees with sweet, fragrant
nectar, and get their pollen spread about, assuring a next generation? They may
be doing this consciously!"
Maybe Disney will make a cartoon about a
happy little vegetable. He will be called Buddy the Carrot. He'll lose his
mother to the farmer when he picks her, and eats her. That could do to
vegetables what Bambi did to meat! Carrots may in fact be more intelligent than
deer. Who knows for sure? You read it here first at THE UNCOVEROR.
For those with diabetes your diet becomes an important part of your health, so if you need some medical advice before you make a serious change like vegetarianism, then you could stop online and read health info before making a doctor's visit.
