I was researching this morning to do an update on the degradation of the middle east including Iraq while Bush is declaring victory and over there talking Peace that will never happen. However, the issue of cloning resurfaced this morning so I thought that even more important to talk about today. I will get back to Bush's destruction of the middle east tomorrow. Today just one aspect on the destruction of avwerage American's.
You don't think the affluent is goint to eat this stuff do you? This isn't for our benefit it is for business. I set out to update a story I did on this years ago but nothing has changed. We still do not know if cloned meat is safe but now supposedly the final hurdle has been passed and it is being declared safe for average American's. If it is so safe mark it! If I thought vegetables were any safer today I would swear off meat! Anyway I am sticking with my original story but I recommend you read this so called new update and watch the video of The FDA saying cloned Beef safe
More about the FDA shortly and I do want to know what you think about the FDA and the idea of eating cloned, unmarked, meat? The FDA assures us after a supposed 6 year study for your safety they concluded that cloned livestock is "virtually indistinguishable" from conventional livestock. I really don't know what I think about this yet but I have learned not to trust the FDA. I have to ask how virtual is this virtually indistinguishable difference? and we don't need special labels? I understand the verdict is out for 3 months until a final decision is made on disclosure issue . While Joseph Mendelson, legal director of the Center for Food Safety says we are going to be having a product that has potential safety issues and has a whole load of ethical issues tied to it, without any labeling.
Also the director of food policy at the Consumer Federation of America said the FDA is ignoring research that shows cloning results in more deaths and deformed animals than other reproductive technologies. They have announced that they feel so good about this cloned meat that they will ask food companies and supermarkets to refuse to sell food from clones. Looking at the process used in the cloning it appears to be innocent enough but I don't know? How are we supposed to believe the FDA with their track record? we're supposed to feel better because they are only going to use these manufactured animals for breeding! Where the hell is the security in that? Cloned Food
