The possibility for plants feeling pain
We live in a world of uncertainties. Here, the lamest of the thing is given value, but the severe matters are ignored profoundly. Lately, there have been a debate and extensive research investigating that if vegetables and plants sense pain. Some websites entail science scholars and researchers seeking solutions for plant justice. It is also known that torture is immediately experienced when the tissue is affected or damaged. Plants are made up of cellular membranes, which breaks when we tear or pluck the leaves or stems. This builds a possibility of pain and sensation.
Perhaps, the anatomy science believes that pain is felt through the sensory nerves which are only present in the human and animal body. Everything which grows is living and dies after their life cycle time when they have completed it successfully or are removed from their food and energy source. This lead to another question saying are vegetables dying after plucking? If yes, then in how many of minutes or hours it takes to lose a life. For people who cook straight from the kitchen garden, are they preparing the living vegetables?
Shall we eat the dying plants and vegetables?
Religious people never took a back seat here, they thoroughly discussed, what bible says and what bible does not say. The holy book said that humans could eat anything which grows on land and which swim in water and has fins, though judging each other for eating or not eating shall be disgraced. Activists are earnest about “plant rights”. The studies have shown, that there is always a smell associated with the freshly cut grass, that smell is the release of chemicals out of the grass when they are harmed, cut or eaten. This chemical phenomenon is retrieved as a defence system, and one would only defence in the situation of pain. Perhaps, if we refrain from cutting plants or vegetable for eating, our ecology system will be facing trouble.
