My parents would serve veal, and I've enjoyed it at restaurants, but for no particular reason, I have never once purchased veal at the grocery store and cooked it at home. It just doesn't occur to me to buy veal.
Usually, I treat myself to a little block of truffled foie gras around Christmas/New Year. I skipped it this year.
I was once lectured by a hardcore TM fanatic about the spiritual, nutritional, and ethical supremacy of the Ayurvedic lacto-vegetarian diet, so I did a little Google searching. As it turns out, the way the dairy industry in India deals with unneeded calves is even less humane than the veal industry in the West. When I told him that, his response was to simply brush off the current reality as an artifact of this being the age of Kali Yuga
There's a chiropractor in town who is completely devoted to his TM practice and Maharishi's knowledge, and a lot of his clients are middle-aged baby boomers who have been vegetarian meditators for decades. He's seeing all sorts of health problems from these "ideal" vegetarian diets (mostly too much soy and carbohydrate), and he's managed to convince a number of his clients to ditch the soy in favor of eggs, chicken, and fish. As a result, people slip PETA literature under his office door.
