Do Vegans and Vegetarians Have More Empathy?

Do Vegans and Vegetarians Have More Empathy?


  • By: Katie Medlock

Scientific research suggests the answer is ‘yes’.

When compared to omnivores, or those who eat both plant and animal products, functional MRI brain scans reveal a more powerful empathic response to both human and animal suffering in the minds of vegetarians and vegans. But, these findings may only be telling us part of the story.

The recent research using fMRI technology did, in fact, show that certain areas of the brain associated with empathy light up more in identified vegetarians and vegans and that the response to images of animal suffering is especially strong. What it does not reveal, however, is where this empathy comes from and if vegetarians and vegans are born with more of it, compared to their omnivorous counterparts.

When considering this chicken-or-the-egg (er, apple-or-the-seed?) scenario, we must remember that most vegans begin as omnivores. While there are some families who raise their children with vegan ethics, many of us came around to the philosophy years into adolescence or adulthood. Colleen Patrick-Goudreau, author and animal rights advocate, calls the phenomenon “waking up” after a period of being asleep.

She and others would argue that important components of our compassion are lying dormant as we grow up in a world which hides away the suffering of animals and tells us it’s normal to eat them. These parts of ourselves are revitalized when we are able and ready to “wake up” from what is, quite literally, being fed to us.

The mechanism of ignoring empathy-provoking experiences is a protective one. On a small scale, how many times have you purposefully scrolled past an article about some horrendous happening in the world? Our minds can only handle so much at a time. Our empathy has its limits largely because there is so much out there asking for a piece of it. When we are presented with information that requires us to tap into our empathy—and to even consider changing a part of our daily lives—we either rise to the occasion and process it or retreat from the uneasiness of cognitive dissonance, back into our comfort zones.

More research into empathic responses could be helpful in further understanding the mechanics of empathy, not just who appears to have more of it.

So, do vegetarians and vegans actually have more empathy? Perhaps they are more plugged into the empathy reserve we all have inside of us. As John Mackey, CEO of Whole Foods, told Men’s Journal about his decision to follow a vegan philosophy after being presented with the horrors of the animal agriculture industry, “Remember The Matrix? Take the blue pill or the red pill? I didn’t want to go back to sleep.”

The Connection Between Animal Agriculture and Climate Change.




by Joe Loria March 9, 2016

A recent VICE News article spotlights the connection between animal agriculture and climate change.

Raising cattle for dairy and beef is one of the leading producers of methane, a dangerous greenhouse gas that has 25 times the global warming effect of carbon dioxide on a 100-year scale. As developing countries become wealthier and increasingly switch to a Western-style diet, global emissions are expected to rise.

The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) reports that intestinal gas from livestock, mainly cattle, is the second-largest source of U.S. methane emissions. According to a report released by the EPA last week, these emissions added up to the equivalent of 648 million metric tons of carbon dioxide in 2014, with manure adding another 60 million.

Americans eat a huge amount of meat. We eat 60 percent more than Europeans and somewhere between 150 or 200 percent of our needs,” remarks Dawn Undurraga, a nutritionist with Environmental Working Group.

While many think eating chicken, a less carbon-intensive meat, is better for the environment, consuming just a four-ounce serving is still comparable to driving a typical car nearly two miles. The same size serving of pork adds another mile.

British think-tank Chatham House reports that worldwide, livestock accounts for about 15 percent of global emissions and reducing consumption of animal products “will be critical” to hitting the climate change targets leaders set in Paris in December.

Governments of developing countries are trying to avoid the mistakes of the Western world. In Brazil, one of the largest beef producers, the government has established a set of dietary guidelines that encourages consumption of less carbon-intensive protein sources.

“I find it hard to believe we couldn’t waste less and eat better and not pollute the planet as much,” Undurraga says.

USA: Dairy Worker Drowns In Manure – Not The First Time !

According to farm labor union United Farm Workers, a dairy worker drowned in manure last month. On February 16, 2016, Ruperto Vazquez Carrera, 37, died shortly after showing up for work at Sunrise Organic Dairy in Paul, Idaho. His body was found approximately 10 hours later submerged in a 20-acre manure lagoon.

Similarly, Randy Vasquez, 27, drowned in a manure lagoon on February 24, 2015, while strapped into a front loader at Riverview Ranch, a dairy in rural Mabton, Washington.

These deaths are not isolated cases; Idaho alone reported three dairy fatalities in 2013.

Manure lagoons are enormous stores of animal feces and urine that can span several football fields.

See for yourself:


They are terribly toxic and otherwise dangerous for those working near them.

In July 2015, an Iowan father and son were working on their hog farm when they were overcome by fumes and died.

Employees at all factory farms work in hazardous conditions. On average in Washington, one dairy farm worker dies every 16 months and one is injured per day.

BuzzFeed News reported earlier this year that at processing plants owned by Tyson, the world’s largest meat producer, an average of one employee per month is injured by equipment and loses a finger or limb.

In order to make a profit, factory farmers blatantly disregard the environment, their workers, and the animals they confine, mutilate, and kill.

The best thing we can do to protect people and animals is to boycott the industry that abuses them.
