DON'T MESS WITH THE GODS - Cloning animals for meat/beef purposes.

1) I'm a meat eater and will become a vegetarian if meat presented to me either in the supermarket or a restaurant is cloned. Cloned animals have died early with a number of maladies. I don't want that transferred to me. I will not believe labeling that tells if it is cloned or not cloned. I will avoid it regardless of the labeling because I won't trust the meat industry nor the FDA on this one.

2) Humans are not God. We are HUMANS. Understand that distinction. What arrogance for the FDA or the meat industry to think that we can create life through cloning ($$$$) and that it will be safe. Think mad cow disease. How reprehensible.
