In the meadow, four white-haired Shorthorn heifers peel off from the others, raising their heads at the same time in the same direction. Unsettling, when you know they are clones!

"What's for dinner tonight, Honey?"

"Clones."

"Yuck, I'm going vegetarian. Let's go out to this place around the corner, Vegie Feast."

"That's what I was hoping you'd say."

Just what is the point of this? There is absolutely no proof offered for any of the claims made by one man and a general reference to the EU where the matter is still under debate. Any danger in the meat or dairy would be immediately apparent to the testing done to ensure a true clone has been produced, otherwise it would not be done as the product would not be accepted by the customer buying the clone. Other than rabid hysterical fear mongering there is absolutely NO valid replicable scientific proof for any of the claimed dangers. And I must say that the BS about a ticking time bomb sounds way too much like Bush/Cheney and the Mushroom Cloud crap about WMD in Iraq.

Lloyd H. it states in the article that cloned animals have a shorter life expectancy. If you do your research you will find this is not the only problem with cloned animals with birth defects, miscarriages and mortality rates for the young at high rates. It is an area beset with many problems. Eating this meat and not labelling it is wilfully ignorant of the dangers based on the facts. Unfortunately you seem to be the rabid hysterical one actually. Calm down and do some more research instead of attacking someone with an opinion different to your own. By the way, the point is that mature discussion can take place while informing the public about what the scientific community are up to. Personally I think that genetically weakened animals are not the way forward and I definitely do not want to eat these unfortunate animals or their descendants.

Yuck! Go Veg!! Put the abusers out of business. You can get protein from beans, legumes, tofu, etc.

The meat industry has become the worst offender of animal cruelty. An offender hurting a pet can attract heavy fines or jail, the meat industry is laughing at the law. This is insane. My wife is Indian of Tamil origin and I keep telling her: do not give me meat. Southern India has a very good range of recipes, which are totally vegetarian.
The meat industry treats animals so cruelly, employing sadists giving them electric shock pods and a weapon to slowly kill them.
Karma, those sadists will meet their maker and will receive the same treatment.
Animals are animals, they do feel pain and they do absolutely feel love as well. Our Rottweiler is a gem. He has a huge bark, friends and criminals will not enter our home. I cannot believe that animals can be so sensitive and loving, that Rotti of ours has proved it.
.I grew up on a farm and never forgot the screams of the pigs before slaughter and the panic of the chicken. They knew their time was up, way before the butcher came.
How to deal with a cruel and sadistic world, it haunts me. The only thing that keeps me sane is a our Rotti, my best mate, even though I am only his caretaker.
