Confirmation: Vegans think differently........

While anyone that is vegan knows that their thinking differs from non-vegans, it is nice to see some empirical evidence backing up subjective experience.  Over at the Vegan Soapbox blog, Elaine Vigneault (who is a wonderful asset for animals and the ethical vegan cause) has written about a recently conducted brain scan study identifying the differing areas of brain activity occurring when omnivores, vegetarians and vegans are presented with the same stimuli. 

So, next time you (a vegan) are in a conversation with a non-vegan and you begin to wonder if they are from the same planet you are.......well, they might be from the same planet but their brain is not operating the same as yours and now there is empirical data supporting that fact.
