This is confusing, and while companies are wrong to do this they are not acting illegally. Non-vegan ingredients in products: Th ..read more

The more frequent addition of modest amounts of meat to the early human diet came with the discovery of fire, which lowered the ris ..read more

Q:  Are animals conscious? In July, 2012, a group of scientists gathered at the University of Cambridge for the first annual Francis Crick Memorial Conference. Crick, who was the co-discoverer of DNA, spent the latter part of his career studying consciousness. The outcome of the meeting was the Cambridge Declaration on Consciousness which concludes that “non-human animals have the neuroanatomical, neurochemical, and neurophysiological substrates of conscious states along with the capacity to exhibit intentional behaviors.
