GENERAL
Meat from cloned animals is no different from any other animals. There is no logical reason why cloned animals should not be used for human consumption. In fact, the use of cloned animals is very likely to lead to improved quality and more healthy meat since cloned animals can be consistently be bred to have better qualities such as lower fat content.

Since meat from cloned animals is no different from any other meat, there is no reason to give in to demands from the irrational Luddites who are demanding that cloned meat be labeled as such. The anti-technology fanatics who oppose every technological advance want to use labeling to scare gullible consumers into thinking that there is something dangerous about meat from cloned animals.
The USA must not follow the irrational European protectionist mentality.

I am a consumer without any financial interest in the meat industry, but I know that willingness to accept technological advancement has been a prime reason that the USA leads the world in the standard of living of the average person, and that the rantings of anti-technology zealots not worthy of consideration. I urge that the FDA approve the sale of meat from cloned animals without delay and without labeling.
