Whale Poop In Perfume?

(OCEANS/WHALES) What's the most expensive ingredient in perfume? Poop, of course! Sperm whale poop to be exact.

However, a question of morality remains. With sperm whales being an endangered species, is it wise to put such a high price tag on the animal's by-product? Should those who stand to illegally make a profit from ambergris be prosecuted? Read on to learn more about this "gold of the sea" and tell us what you think in our poll. — Global Animal

Elana’s Meat-Free Monday: Tomato Basil Soup With Croutons

(VEGAN/VEGETARIAN RECIPES) Soup can be so satisfying on a cool day, and is many people's go-to remedy for when they feel a cold coming on. Tomato basil soup is an excellent choice in boosting your immune system, as both ingredients contain antioxidants that can protect against damage from free radicals. This is one of the easiest soup recipes to make, yet it tastes deceptively decadent. It is creamy, as any traditional tomato basil soup should be, and can be enjoyed as a full meal or paired with a sandwich or salad. Homemade sourdough croutons are the perfect complement to this rich, flavorful soup. Serve up a bowl for lunch, brunch, or dinner! — Global Animal
