| Meat from cloned animals being allowed seems premature for public consumption. It seems that all is well and no issues will occur, and seems like an ideal approach for good yield and great quality.
Is it that history will teach us nothing? The usage of asbestos was deemed as an ideal material safe for the public. Everything has asbestos - brakes, building insulation, etc. - decades went by - now we know the affects to the lungs and to the body as deadly. This was a huge mistake, we are still removing asbestos with costs of money and lives, and lifestyle.
Is there any guarantes this is safe over the long run for all of humanity? NO I assume. If modifications of the genetic type are to be allowed, why not have a simple lable on the product for public awareness? Is it too honerous to have a simple lable? IS it too much to declare it along with the nutritional information on the lable like calories? Why have NO information about the sources? If there are no issues with the meat, then there should be no issue with public discluoure.
