GENERAL
I am completely opposed to cloned animals entering the human food chain. I do not believe there has been enough testing or time elapsed to determine if cloned meat or dairy products are safe, especially considering that cloned animals develope diseases and die earlier than non-cloned animals. If these products are to be sold to the public, my opinion is that they must be labelled as to their origin. I personally would not consume these products if I knew of their origin. Just like bringing a new drug to market, sometimes it takes years to find out that it is not safe or has too many side effects. Please do the right thing and test these products for ten years or more. We don't want another mad cow like problem.
