Cloning of Livestock and other animals for human consumption

what are your views on this topic title ?
and would you eat it ?
and do you know they are trying to bring it to market ?
and do you know they don't want to tell you the meat comes from cloned animals (ie cloned meat sold in the same package as regular) ?
should it be labeled specific as cloned meat ?


I don't eat meat, not my problem to deal with but i sure as heck don't agree with it in any aspect( as such labeling needs no answer).

I think its absolutely ridiculous if you ask me. Why the need for cloning livestock and other animals? There is plenty of meat to go around. Its not going to help their marketing issues at all nor do I believe it to be cheaper in any way.

I think if they do or are doing it they should label the packages as to whats regular and whats cloned. Who knows what goes into cloning animals and/or the side effects it could cause for humans who eat it.

They should clone the meat for themselves and leave the regular meat for the rest of us. I would be okay with that :P

I personally don't eat meat so it wouldn't affect me, but I would find cloning anything to be disturbing and something I wouldn't ever agree with.

One of my qualms with this subject is about the effects on quality/genetics of the meat...what effects do cloning tissue cells repeatedly (copies of copies) have on cellular structure? More importantly how could this potentially affect the consumer?

I know everyone quit posting on this forever ago, but whatever.
I would never eat cloned meat. I actually don't eat feedlot meat either.
Feedlots already take the natural process out of your food, why go many steps further and create essentially "fake" meat? Completely unnatural. We are already eating too much genetically modified crap.
As far as labels go, I want to know everything about the food I'm eating. Whats in it, how it was made, and where its from. It's this major disconnect and ignorance about our food that is leading to alot of serious health problems. The government is letting it happen and is encouraging it.
Pick up some grass fed meat, people, if meat is your thing. Not only more ethical but healthier, and you wouldn't believe the taste.
