Smart People Already Know This, I Bet
If you do not like the idea of veal, which is produced by stunting a young cow's growth by keeping it in cages so it can't move and develop muscles, and then clubbing it to death or painfully cutting parts off of it until it dies, then you should also make sure the cheese you buy/eat has vegetable rennet and not dairy rennet, which is a by-product of veal production. I learned this because I wrote an e-mail to Ben Cartwright about what I was eating this morning. I found out that Ben like Kosher salt, which is delicious and Jewish, two things that I like but am probably ignorant about. I did not want to be ignorant about the cheese I was eating, so I looked it up. I should learn more because Wikipedia is not a good enough source. Any suggestions?
