the infant from the flames.” In the article, “A Change of Heart about Animals” by Jeremy Rifkin, he asserts that “animals feel pain, suffer, and experience stress, affection, excitement and even love.” I believe animals are exceptionally similar to humans. They should be studied more due to the similarity of characteristics that they share with humans. I agree with Rifkin’s article because he uses great insight and valuable information. Since animals are our fellow beings we should live to respect
his article “A Change of Heart About Animals” (September 1, 2003) is not very effective in creating a strong argument that would change readers’ attitudes toward the treatment of animals and animal rights. Rifkin is an economic and social theorist, writer, public speaker, and activist that writes about the impact of scientific and technological changes on the economy and society. His work focuses mostly on the economy, science, technology, and political science but not so much on animal studies thus
" Brian Doyle focuses on how a heart is mesmerizing in various ways. He uses the hummingbird's heart to describe how small a heart could be so powerful and other examples of hearts to show what it could endure. He mainly tells us with shifts and changes of tone, imagery and sensory being used to convey his message across. Doyle shifts his tone when he writes," ... Mammals and birds have hearts with four chambers" he gave examples of animals because he wants readers to think deeply about what animals could go through like the hummingbird
genetically manipulated, put on drug regimens that cause chronic pain and crippling, transported through all weather extremes, and killed in gruesome and violent ways.” Who?

Vegetarian Diet Vs Omnivorous Diet
Vegetarian: a person who does not eat meat or fish, and sometimes other animal products, especially for moral, religious, or health reasons (Oxford). Evolution dictates undisputedly the fact that in order to survive all animals including human beings must consume the by-products of DNA (Evolution).
