Vegan Brains Unique

An Italian study finds that vegan brains react differently to images of animal cruelty than omnivores.

A recently released study has found that vegan brains and omnivore brains respond differently to images of animal cruelty. Italian researchers compared the MRI scans of 60 adults, pulling from a pool of 21 vegans, 20 omnivores, and 19 vegetarians and found that vegans and vegetarians used alternate parts of the brain controlling empathy and social cognition when confronted with images of animal cruelty. The scientists behind the study initially theorized that vegan brains would respond differently to animal suffering based on their ethics and empathy.
