Nature does not allow any exact reproductions of itself - similarities, yes as we see everywhere in our world, but exactnesses, no. It is impossible to clone the psychological and built-in information systems at the cellular and molecular levels of the animal being cloned. Human beings also have built-in cellular and molecular information systems that already know how to use the nutrients of animals in the digestive process for the purpose intended i.e. nutritional value - support and growth of the consuming human. When one (science) meddles with the proper (natural) flow of information at the cellular level, whole new realities are created which may be undesirable. Cloning for consumption should therefore NOT be allowed and vehemently opposed. To even think this is 'ok' to do - and then possibly not even inform consumers - is the height of unconscionable and unethical behavior. I STRONGLY urge you not to allow this to happen. There are so many other ways to achieve sufficient, optimun and profitable food sources that are supportive of the human condition.

Thank you,
Alice Martin
