The brilliant Indian scientist J.C. Bose demonstrated last century that plants, fruit and vegetables were living beings emitting an electrical current.
Carrots have feelings as do cows and they have a moment of death in order to feed us. We selectively honour the animal when the vegetable also experiences pain and sacrifice in order that we may survive.
We should give thanks, silent or spoken, a ‘prayer’ offered for the life given in service to us and our survival.
In London, Bose demonstrated these death spasms to Bernard Shaw, the philosopher and vegetarian who was unhappy to learn these facts and who said:
‘to find that a piece of cabbage was thrown into violent convulsions when scalded to death.’
