GENERAL
Please do not approve putting cloned animal products (meat, milk, etc.) into our food system. Where are the scientific studies that assure that this is safe? What about as yet unknown genetic diseases that might be proliferated through cloning and, like mad cow disease, could be transferable to humans who consume the products?

To date, human beings have not proved to be trustworthy with this type of decision. We don't seem to have the capacity to take a wide enough view of the possible results of our actions and almost always find later that there are adverse results that nobody imagined could happen. History is rife with such things.

Don't let this happen on your watch!
