Im just a meaty kind of guy. Yep. Juicy Medium-Rare, smothered in Garlic and coarse black pepper. Black on the outside and pink on the inside. Im ok with cloning as long at they only do the best of the best and not the cheap stuff hehe.

I love meat, thats why I don't want it messed with. When BSC ( mad cow disease) was running amok in the UK, there was a world wide ban on feeding animals with other ground up animals. But the US used a loophole by saying that cows cannot be fed to cows and sheep to sheep and so on, instead they are still able to feed cows to sheep and vice versa.

 

I think our food should be the embodiment of health, that way we get the best product. but these farmers who don't give a damn about the food rather than the amount of it they can produce will put any thing on and in their product to make more money. Greed always prevails. When you buy "organic" food you get half as much in your shopping cart but for the same money, catch 22 when you have a big family and low income.

I'm a meat and potatos man. No matter how many studies come out saying red meat is bad for you, I'll eat meat. But I'll draw that line at byproducts from cloned animals. They still can't make up their mind on if eggs are good/bad for us. How am I supposed to believe they have enough data on whether or not cloned animal meat is safe for us? It's easier for me to believe that food brought into this world naturally is better for the body than some test tube grown .. I know I'm eating some man made junk when I buy a bag of potato chips, but I also know I'm NOT eating some DNA spliced atom nuked garbage either. I eat/drink unhealthy stuff all the time ...but the thought of this just leaves a bitter taste in my mouth. I keep thinking of the movie Twins, where Danny De'Vito is the left over dna garbage lol ...who knows what ur getting!

 

Right now cloned animals are so expensive they're not even considering milking them, let alone slaughtering them for meat. They may do so on the offspring ...which means it makes no financial sense. So essentially we're only doing it because we can, not because it makes the most sense. Oh and btw, cloned animals are more succeptible to illnesses so they didn't root out the weaknesses like Sci-Fi books would have you believe. So who knows if clones will introduce new bugs for our scientists to try and outsmart.

 

 

Then the FDA encourages these clone farmers to inject this into our food supply without giving us a choice. #### you. These are the people who are supposed to take care of us?! They know the . wouldn't sell if people had a choice between born and bred meat/milk versus cloned, so they essentially turned us into Alpha testers. It's annoying when software publishers do it, but tampering with people's health kind of ups the anty. I'll take Microsoft over the FDA anyday. :confused:

Since we have been eating food products synthetically created, or created from genetically engineered plants, or from cloned plants, I don't see the issue.

 

Plants are easy to clone; snip, snip. stick in little foam dohnut, add rooting compound and BAM you're cloning.

 

It just happens to be a slightly more delicate process when dealing with animal DNA.:spam:

This is the problem though, we are slowly but surely making weaker and weaker strains of our food until it is of no more use to us other than taste. When you are eating large amounts of food with tiny amounts of vitamins your doing yourself no favors at all, then you end up with a nation of obese people wondering why they are fat, hmm sounds familiar lol. Food is a product like any other, they will use any and all shortcuts to produce as much of it as they can for nothing more than profit. Incidentally food is the only product where there is no governed limit as to how much you can sell it for so the profit margin is huge, this is what I believe is the main point to GM food, Money not for the good of mankind.

 

Even bottled water says "added minerals for taste" on the label, when I drink water I want it to be just that, water. And did you know the water that comes out of your tap is said to have passed through at least 3 people on average...Eww!

 

I look at the food industry like Dell make computers, they say its meat but you know its surrounded by crap lol

If cloning helps produce MORE product for the industry to profit from, then maybe they will clone prime, unaltered examples of what God/mother nature/Allah/your higher power has blessed us with. I would much rather eat copies of the best, strongest natural specimine we can find than eat what the industry serves us now. Which is pumped so full of hormones so that it will grow larger that we now are seeing the side effects of eating this crap for so many years. At least that is why I think children are physically developing way earlier than history shows they should.

I doubt there is one perfectly healthy unaltered Cow left in the developed world. Might have to go to Vietnam or Peru for that one lol. I agree that kids are developing way to quickly, christ! I saw a 14 year old the other day with stubble, I was just getting used to pubes at 14 :D

That's the thing though, it doesn't! The sci-fi tech geek nerdy part of me wants to believe the hype but the reality of it is currently the technology is not even close to Prime Time yet. Why do you think they don't want to slaughter direct clones? It's not because the Cloning God will be angry. It is because there are so many failures which makes the "healthy" ones too valuable. Currently clones are more succeptible to diseases and genetic flaws. So why are we doing it? Because we can. Someday they would like to achieve the level of greatness you envision now. That's great but we're not there yet so why are we injecting this crap without a filter? It makes as much sense as agreeing to exchange my 50cents for your $50 bill.

 

And if you think those cloned cows are less drugged up than a born and bred cow (as Angry puts it) you drank the cool-aid. You said it yourself, we are already being fed crap with a tainted food supply ...guess who is supposed to regulate that? Give you a hint, it's in their name and the ones responisble to putting more crap in. :)

 

Your reason for saying yes is the same reason I have for saying no. I dun trust dem sum .. If they had waited till the technology was more advanced (rather than in its infant stages) I might be more willing to take the blue pill.

xxxx the FDA and xxxx cloned meat

 

momma and I have already made the rule that if the meat doesn't specifically say "NOT CLONED" or such, we won't eat it. We'll just get our 'beef' from local butchers who do nothing but grass-feed them on open range (best tasting beef in the world right there).

 

No feedlot cows, no cloned cows, no 'industry' cows, nothing. Only beef we eat is grass-fed open range.

 

Tyson, the company that makes all them chickens you love, has come out and stated emphatically that they will NOT use cloned animals because the customers have already been flooding their hotlines and email systems with OVERWHELMING refusal to eat anything cloned.

 

The hormones they put in animals pretty much keeps us from drinking regular store milk, and is already a huge reason we don't eat cows from any source but a known source like mentioned above (blah blah grass fed, local, open range all that ....I want meat I can trust...and while you can't really trust any meat unless you raise it and butcher it yourself, and even then who knows what genetics the damn thing has, but at least with a trustworthy local cattle rancher who guarantees no hormones, no feedlots, no clones, no grains, no mass-butchered meat in dirty, unsanitary slaughterhouses that aren't even inspected by the FDA, no, they are 'inspected' by people that the slaughterhouse/company hires so you KNOW that . is totally unbiased right?, anyway, at least with a trustworthy source, I can worry about other things instead of whether my steak is going to give me testicular cancer two years before mad-cow disease)

 

People are stupid who believe the FDA these days. Sure VIOXX and all those other meds are safe...why are they killing people? ., we don't know, must be someone else's fault as long as uncle Government (cough*republican congress + republican puzzlehead president*cough) doesn't do anything other than help corporations xxxx over consumers/citizens...

 

But really doesn't matter I'm sure. Every single day we eat processed.... basically. Chicken that might be chicken "parts" with water and fused together under pressure to resemble chicken, sprinkled with a shitload of man-made chemicals to make it taste like chicken even more than real chicken tastes like chicken...read the labels on your food sometime and try to guess what chemical you are ingesting and what that chemical 'cocktail' might be doing to your body...because you know, eating REAL apples is probably no safer than say...whatever apple filling nonsense in that 'little debbie apple snack' that is infused with 5 vitamins and minerals to make sugar and high fructose corn syrup healthy...

 

I'm not Richard Simmons. I'm not a health nut. I am however, as I grow older, more concerned about the . I put in my body, and a bit fearful of 34 years of ingesting mostly unnatural food-stuffs, preservatives, etc with a few bits of REAL food tossed in there here and there.

 

I'm sure that when we die, you won't even have to embalm us. We'll stay preserved until the third coming of the messiah.

 

Oh and yes I'm sure the USDA and FDA and Whatever-A agencies will all state "oh sure it's safe, would we let companies sell food to you that wasn't safe????". So you know, I'm definitely going to believe them over...say...common sense that says "SOMETHING GROWING OUT OF THE GROUND IS SAFER THAN PROCESSED FOOD-PRODUCTS THAT HAVE MAYBE 10% NATURAL FOODS IN THEM AND 90% CHEMICALS AND/OR HIGH FRUCTOSE CORN SYRUP"

 

Give me a xxxxing break. Just another reason to not have children. They might grow up to be stupid like all the sheep living in the country that believe this . as well as whatever else President Puzzlehead tells Fox News to tell you to believe....and they would probably get stupid from the brain/genetic damage all these chemicals and pollutants and who-knows-what-else that we have to live with every single day.

 

Ever wonder why everyone is depressed, bi-polar, whatever these days? Is it because Pharm companies need to convince you that you have problems so you have to buy their medications? Or is it because our genetic makeup is being destroyed by our light-speed entry into the industrial revolution without much thought as to what kind of harm industry and products of industry are doing to us as an entire race? But that's ok right, because medical technology and especially drugs from these corporate drug makers will cure any ills we have, and then we have the internet (ie: PORNO) and network television like Who Wants to Kick Donald Trump In The Balls and Britney Spears: The whore Who Smokes Pole For Crack to go along with our 24-hour Fox News which makes anyone who watches it stupider than even the dumbest of the dumb already are...

 

anyway...I'm very angry...someone came onto my property and stole my hockey stick and helmet off my snowman...but I hated the idea of cloned meat before and now I'm blowing off steam...a two-for-one (you get all the hate from me over thieves applied to my hate for cloned animals)

I know. They're the same pansies that get the flu shot every year.

 

I'm absolutely positive that if a clone steak tastes good that my body can handle anything "bad" within the +4 delicious steak of deliciousness.
