Methodology of evaluation is not extensive enough:
There is no evidence of consideration of observe effects of long term exposure on those who consume the product. For example, what are the potential effects on the consumer of long term consumption of cloned product in regards to phenotypic variability, disruption of immune function, and alterations in metabolism?
In assessing the risks of consumption, it was stated that there was no desire t o analyze various chemical compositions? What about the various possible chemical compositions of the presence of cells within the chemical composition of the consumer's body?

Animal Health Risks:
We all remember what happened to Dolly. The seemingly healthy sheep that rapidly declined into an animal that resembled that with 'Mad Cow Disease.'

Why are we constantly trying to alter our food supply? Why would we introduce this into the food system? Who is actually benefiting from this?

I do not want to consume anymore-unnatural foods!
