Cloning Animals For Food

Cloned Livestock Poised To Receive FDA Clearance -

This has to be one of the most unbelievable stories I have ever read. I've always thought of cloning as a means to produce healthy organs for transplant cases. Not for endless supplies of food:
After more than six years of wrestling with the question of whether meat and milk from them are safe to eat, the Food and Drug Administration is expected to declare as early as next week that they are.
Think about it, McDonald's will never run out of food. Just as long as they keep cloning Bessie, they can keep mass producing Big Macs.
"Most consumers do not find this appealing," says Marguerite Copel, vice president of corporate communications at Dean Foods Co., one of the nation's largest milk producers, which says it won't sell any milk from cloned animals.
Downright disgusting is more like it. I am physically sick thinking of these cloning factory slaughterhouses, and hey, they don't need to worry about PETA or ethical treatment either, because the clone was never supposed to be alive anyway.
