“That’s an absolute myth, plants cannot experience pain like animals do, they have no brains or nervous systems.

Plants do experience a chemical response to outside disturbances, but it’s in no way actual physical pain, which requires actual nerves to feel and experience.

80% of the plants on this planet are grown and harvested solely to support animal agriculture, and it takes 16 pounds of plants to make 1 pound of meat (not to mention 2,500 gallons of water per pound of meat!).These are not arbitrary statistics, these are federal averages, and the gallons of water statistic was actually voluntarily offered by the Cattleman’s association in America.”
