So, lately you have found yourself sitting around wondering when it would finally be possible to eat cloned animals, right? I mean, we all wonder that. In fact, I was thinking about it this morning when I was making bacon and eggs! Well, finally the government has an answer for you – it’s A-OK! Hurray! Now when that 2 headed chicken shows up in your local supermarket, you can just be thankful that you are getting 2 heads for the price of 1. What a deal.
If you have not passed out from being so pissed off yet, then please, by all means, continue reading. I am sure you will feel much better with information such as:
The government has decided that food from cloned animals is safe to eat and does not require special labeling.
Well, thats a relief. I figured they would have to spend a fortune on an extra sticker on every package, but I am glad they found a way to save some of my tax dollars from going to waste.
Carol Tucker Foreman, 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.
Gee, ya think? I mean, they pump us full of pills, insecticides, hydrogenated crap, lead, mercury and other crap that damages our reproductive systems, so its no surprise they don’t want to warn us of yet another danger.
Some surveys have shown people to be uncomfortable with food from cloned animals; 64 percent said they were uncomfortable in a September poll by the Pew Initiative on Food and Biotechnology, a nonpartisan research group.
Some surveys? SOME? I would imagine if they asked most people, the answer would be “no way in hell”. I cannot believe that only 64% said they were uncomfortable…who they hell were they asking?
You can read the rest of the article at ENN, but just google “FDA clone food” and I am sure you will find much more solid evidence that this eventually won’t cause an absurd amount of problems in the future. No really, I am sure its fine. Bring on the turkey flavored pork sirloin fish fry!
