Point blank the general public should not be eating cloned meat. To make matters worse the FDA does not believe that the food should be labeled. If the government does decide not to label the food many consumers would not purchase the food. I personally enjoy eating meat and dairy products but if this idea is put into effect I would become a vegetarian in a heartbeat. It is bad enough that the general public have to eat processed food now we would be forced into eating cloned food. Perhaps it may be safe to eat it now but who knows the long term effet that it might have on people and their health problems. A long time ago smoking was accepted but who knew it could kill so many people. What may work now may not work in the future. Nautral selection is the way of the world and human beings should not be acting as if they are God. I am curious though as to how this idea that colned food is safe if people aren't already eating it and so far nothing drastic has happened in terms of health. To make such a bold statement that the food is safe to eat the general public would have to already be eating it without knowing.
