PUERTA-GIL, Marta. The legitimation of carnism and speciesism. A qualitative approach to speeches of university students. Rev. Bioética y Derecho [online]. 2017, n.40, pp.215-230.  Epub 02-Nov-2020. ISSN 1886-5887.

The fact that the human being has been fed animal products since its inception has made people accept this food supply as a necessity rather than a choice. However, people who include animal products in their diet are influenced by a belief system, often invisible, called carnism. This paper explores this belief system through a qualitative approach, as well as analysing the justifications that individuals use for the different treatment given to animals. Some are used as food, as opposed to those considered pets. Concluding that, although many arguments are used to support this consumption such as the need, taste, economy, or comfort, is the lack of empathy for other animals which perpetuates the carnist ideology.
