  1. I hated liver when I was a kid, my opinion has changed drastically.

  2. Actually, when I was a young boy I liked when Mom cooked us liver and onions; but I I never knew liver could be that good for you.

  3. I hated liver and onions as a kid but actually enjoy them now.I am anemic and it is loaded with iron.I did not know all the other benefits you just mentioned though!! Terrific write, very informative and helpful!

  4. Hated as a child and now I like it.

  5. Perhaps kids need this liver more than us. Too bad they don’t like it.

  6. There is a reason why people shouldn’t be enjoying calf liver today; the calves are tortured to provide that liver. I’m not a vegan or even a vegetarian, and I have no problem with human consumption of meat as long as the animals are treated in a humane manner, but when it comes to calves, the treatment is nothing short of intolerable cruelty. They take a calf from the mother at birth, (traumatic for both the mother and the calf). Then they chain the calf to a little 3 by 3 shed with a short chain so it can’t even walk around, because they want the muscles to deteriorate so the meat will be tender. Deprived of their mothers milk, the calves are fed a substitute formula intentionally deficient of iron and fiber, to increase the value of the calf meat when they are sold for veal. Many of these calves die from this brutal treatment before they are even sent to slaughter house at 16 weeks of age. Calf liver may be high in nutrients, but I think there are enough other places to get those same nutrients without supporting animal cruelty.

  7. In india calfs liver is banned…

  13. Good article but I guess I can live without it!

  14. thanks for the information…

  15. Thank you woodlandelf for providing us with this information. I hate see anything destroyed and in such a humane way. But do we just cease to exist. The meats that we consume in our bodies are basically been done in this manner. But thank you for pointing this out. We can stop eating meat, but how many of us are willing to do that?

  16. Diamondpoet I agree, people probably aren’t going to stop eating meat, and they shouldn’t have to. There are plenty of farms that treat cows just fine; grass fed beef is usually pretty good as far as treatment. The cows are healthy and roam the pasture until they are old enough to slaughter. When it comes to calf meat, however, there is almost no farm that treats calves humanely. I’m not saying people should give up meat, just calf meat.

  17. Good read, still won’t eat it
