FDA Approves eating cloned animals and its problems

Post  sneubauer on Thu Jan 17, 2008 11:57 am

The Food and Drug Administration has now approved of the ingestion of cloned animals. The FDA has conducted experiments on the health risks of cloning and eating cloned animals. Hopefully, there will never be any food from cloned animals available to eat. According to CTV.ca, the Biotechnology Industry Organization applauded the FDA decision in a statement on their website. It says cloning “can effectively help livestock producers deliver what consumers want: high-quality, safe, abundant and nutritious foods in a consistent manner." Maybe, so the biotech companies can sell more steroids and hormone drugs to farmers.
Cloning is still new, and to bring back an old cloned hero, Dolly, the first cloned sheep, was plagued with poor health. Not to mention Dolly, died prematurely, of tumors. You know the saying “you are what you eat” it is true in this case. I think that eating a cloned animal is disgusting and wrong. Thankfully, cloning is too expensive to become practical in the present. But, in the future as biotechnology progresses don’t be surprised it if becomes feasible in about five years.
It also seems that the younger generations are developing faster due to the cattle that we are eating. For example, we as a population are aging much quicker, than that of our parents and grandparents.
