From Patricia Doyle, PhD
Helllo, Jeff – The US FDA announced that food from cloned animals is safe to eat and does not require special labeling.
The FDA is totally insane.
Cloned animals have had genetic manipulation of their DNA and – in my opinion and that of consumer and food safety groups – the meat is not safe. It may look normal but it is very, very risky consuming altered and modified DNA.
Genetically modified DNA from GM plants were found in animals that had eaten such plants. We are now dealing with cattle and other mammalian livestock proteins and the public has a right to know if they are consuming cloned meat and milk.
If it is so safe then why not label the meat products as origin from cloned animals? Why hide the fact?
This is just plain nuts.
