Issue Areas/Comments
As the parent of a 4 year old I have spent these last 4 years seeking out natural, organic and fresh foods to feed my child. I am concerned that the food we eat is responsible in a large part for disease and lowered resistance to illness. I spend a great deal of extra money on fresh natural foods in the hopes that my son will grow up healthy and resilient.

I see NO Benefits to my families health or well being from being fed cloned food. What if for example, the host is a carrier of something that is dangerous to humans in quantity? We would not have any indication that ALL of a product we consume may be detrimental to our health versus naturaly selected and varied gene pools in the food we eat.

I am AGAINST the cloning of animals for health reasons not for religious or moral reasons. Protect our food sources!
