Issue Areas/Comments
Using cloned animals for food has not been studied thoroughly; this proposed plan has not taken long-term health risks for both animals and humans into consideration or study.

Cloning itself is fraught with risk, with most attempts failing. Complete health profiles of large enough numbers of cloned animals have not been accumulated or studied.

Without long-term studies on cloned animal health, food from these animals is clearly not safe to eat.

Please resist the pressure from corporate food producers and politicians trying to maximize profits at the risk of human health as well as animal health and welfare.

Thank you.
