Digging into a big bowl of salad is not only good for you — it makes you feel good as well!
In addition to being filled with other foods your body needs to stay healthy, it’s a primary meal for people who have chosen not to eat meat products — unless it’s something covered in crispy bacon, like this bacon potato salad!
Since veggies aren’t conscious of whether they’re being eaten or not there’s nothing to feel bad about — right?
Well, apparently, several scientists at the University of Missouri have found evidence that suggests plants can actually feel when they are being eaten. In fact, the evidence suggests vegetables can actually hear it.
How is this possible you ask? It all has to do with the ecological vibrations that plants can feel and respond to.
Check out the details of their fascinating research below — you will never look at a head of lettuce the same again!
Listen up, veggie lovers! New evidence has surfaced that will make you look at your bowl of salad a little more sympathetically.
Though we may think that vegetables have no idea when we are chowing down on them, researchers at theUniversity of Missouri (MU) may have turned that theory on its head.
They found that plants can identify different noises — including the sounds of them being chomped on — and try to defend themselves accordingly.
