Death Primes, Dr's Knowledge of Plant-based Diets & Vegan Labelling

You can listen to this episode above or by subscribing to the podcast on Itunes or Stitcher. You can also find episodes of VeganSci on Soundcloud, Omnystudio, Mixcloud, and Archive.org. (71mins, 68mb)

In this episode of VeganSci, we update you with some Quick Science, including: a short description of the unified model of vegetarian identity, the idea of animal nations, and how dogs make us more social.

We get stuck in-depth into a paper focused on whether whether our fear of death makes us more willing to support killing non-human animals, and the best way to teach your dog and possibly humans.

And finally in the bullshit corner we discuss whether a raw diets really is the best thing since sliced bread (uncooked bread obviously).

You can find links to all of the research we discussed in the episode notes below.
