Cloning animals for the purpose of food consumption is an extremely bad idea and presents dangers to the health of humans both directly from their consumption of these animals as well as indirectly from synthetically altering animals that then in turn alter the ecosystems which sustain our very existence. I think to allow this to take place in order to ensure producers laboratory access to the livestock that produce the greatest yields does not think of the health of the public but instead puts the producers above the people and the expense of consumers. This in turn is destroying our free market and limiting our world in many ways, especially if the consumer is not allowed to know whether or not they are purchasing meat or milk products made from cloned animals. The consumer must be informed about what they are purchasing. I do not want to purchase or consume meat from cloned animals. I do not want to purchase or consume milk products from cloned animals. Therefore I would like to be able to use my freedom of choice to vote with my cosumer rights and choose to not support these farming practices. If in fact these practices are being employed I want to make sure that I am not one to ever contribute to these practices. I say NO to cloning animals. Another reason why this is bad is that it destroys the genetic variability that nature relies on for sustainability. I think that if most people were polled or had an opportunity to express their opinion as to whether or not they approve of this they would not approve. People at the very least need to be informed of what it is they are consuming because their health depends on it. Furthermore values of the consumer should also play a role. Most people do not agree with this and people need to be told if this is the meat they are choosing to purchase or eat. Label it, please. Protect the people that are detached from the industries that feed them and clothe them. Label it, please. label it, please. label it, please. label it, please, label it, please. label it, please. label it, please. label it, please. label it, please. label it, please. label it, please. label it, please.
