Plants can feel themselves being eaten, studies suggest

The line between non-vegetarians and vegetarians is set to be narrowed due to this new study conducted by the researchers at the University of Missouri.

The researches have proven that plants can feel the vibrations of someone chewing on them and responds accordingly.

Plants are known to respond defensively to environmental threats by creating chemicals and the study proves that the sound of being eaten makes them react as well.

The defensive response had also strengthened when the recorded sounds of organism feeding on them was played without the actual process of eating.

And now, the vegetarian argument of animals feels pain when eaten can be cancelled out as plants also go through the same reactions.
