I don't know anyone that eats veal. What's your point Karen?
Are you only capable of seeing black and white in this discussion?
The past 100 years of agriculture cattle, chicken and pig farming is abhorrent, no one is arguing that fact. You are lumping all meat eaters into some moral low ground category, trying to guilt and shame us that eating meat is wrong while ignoring the abundant options of sustainable and healthy practices.
You will win more people over to your line of thought if you realize the human race will never stop eating meat. You're just going to have to deal with that fact. If you want to help, you can educate folks on supporting farmers that provide an alternative to the cruelty caused by the corporate meat industry.
You have choices when you buy food. You can buy vegetables grown by industrial operations -- conventional or organic, which are unsustainable and cause massive environmental damage. Or you can buy them from a source you know and are capable of assessing as sustainable and causing minimal environmental impact. You can buy vegetables that are grown thousands of miles away or you can buy them from a local farm.
What is true for your veggies is also true for your meat.
ANYTHING you buy in a grocery store, be it Vons or Whole Paycheck, is produced unsustainably on an industrial scale. Period.
My point Goatboy is that people should know how the animal lived that they are eating.
How can any animal that has suffered so much be good for anyone?
