MOOOOVE OVER ELSIE
Word on the street (and in the papers and on the news) is that the Food and Drug Administration is all set to put their stamp of approval on meat and milk from cloned animals. Moreover, there will be no special labeling on these food products.
Yes, ladies and gentlemen, we are going to be eating and drinking from genetically altered cows. I guess the FDA didn't feel the hormones and pesticides in our food supply is bad enough. Even Congress recommended this act be delayed until more studies could be conducted. Already there have been offspring of clones that have made it to our dinner tables completely unbeknownst to the consumers. Yum, yum.
64% of Americans are uncomfortable with animal cloning and 43% believe food from clones is unsafe, yet the FDA is going to put it on our grocery shelves with no labling? I can buy organic, I can buy lactose-free, I can buy kosher, I can buy free-trade, but I can't choose milk that comes from a normal cow? What's wrong with this picture?
