WASHINGTON - Meat and milk from cloned animals is essentially identical to that from animals that reproduced normally, a new study says. The findings should ease safety concerns by both the public and regulators about eating cloned animals, said researcher Xiangzhong Yang of the Center for Regenerative Biology at the University of Connecticut. The study was published in Tuesday’s issue of Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences.

The Food and Drug Administration has asked the food industry to keep products from cloned animals out of the food chain while it considers their safety.

If it doesn't taste any different, I don't see why not.
17 yrs ago - Tuesday 4/26/05 - 3:40:54 PM EST (GMT-5)
No.

But my Twin does.

17 yrs ago - Tuesday 4/26/05 - 3:42:36 PM EST (GMT-5)
Yes. It's meat, right?
17 yrs ago - Tuesday 4/26/05 - 3:45:27 PM EST (GMT-5)
No. Why bother if you can get regular meat without the worry of whether its safe or not? Now if it was cheaper.....
17 yrs ago - Friday 4/29/05 - 2:32:58 PM EST (GMT-5)
Yes, I mean, if it's for sale and healthy why not. Meat products are meat prodeucts. It makes no difference how the animal was made does it?
17 yrs ago - Friday 4/29/05 - 2:39:46 PM EST (GMT-5)
Yes, if it's deemed healthy and safe, sure.
17 yrs ago - Friday 4/29/05 - 2:50:37 PM EST (GMT-5)
No, the thought of that is gross.
17 yrs ago - Friday 4/29/05 - 5:40:51 PM EST (GMT-5)
All meat is a no no!
17 yrs ago - Saturday 4/30/05 - 2:35:21 AM EST (GMT-5)
When I first read that I thought it said clown meat.
17 yrs ago - Saturday 4/30/05 - 2:44:34 AM EST (GMT-5)
I'm afraid of anything cloned.
17 yrs ago - Saturday 4/30/05 - 5:17:35 AM EST (GMT-5)
This question is too narrowly focused. I am a vegetarian so no.
16 yrs ago, 11 mos ago - Wednesday 5/25/05 - 11:10:10 AM EST (GMT-5)
I'm a vegetarian too, I don't eat any meat.
16 yrs ago, 11 mos ago - Tuesday 5/31/05 - 8:42:04 PM EST (GMT-5)
why not?... I'm not a vegetarian though. It doesn't gross me out, because it's a normal cow... that has the genetics of another good cow!
16 yrs ago, 11 mos ago - Thursday 6/2/05 - 4:32:39 AM EST (GMT-5)
as long as it cloned the tasty
16 yrs ago, 11 mos ago - Thursday 6/2/05 - 10:50:23 AM EST (GMT-5)
if cloned pot is alright to smoke, why should cloned meat be bad to eat?
16 yrs ago, 11 mos ago - Thursday 6/2/05 - 10:53:51 AM EST (GMT-5)
Sure would.
16 yrs ago, 11 mos ago - Thursday 6/2/05 - 11:08:15 AM EST (GMT-5)
What's the point? It must be far more expensive than natural alternatives
16 yrs ago, 10 mos ago - Sunday 6/19/05 - 10:38:41 PM EST (GMT-5)
I thought we did anyway?
16 yrs ago, 10 mos ago - Monday 6/20/05 - 10:03:17 AM EST (GMT-5)
I don't think I would willingly.
16 yrs ago, 9 mos ago - Thursday 7/28/05 - 12:18:31 PM EST (GMT-5)
I don't eat meat at all but if I did I would.
16 yrs ago, 9 mos ago - Wednesday 8/3/05 - 6:02:24 PM EST (GMT-5)
In fact, I'd RATHER eat cloned meat. Imagine the hilarious names restaurants could give to dishes prepared with clonebeef.
16 yrs ago, 9 mos ago - Tuesday 8/9/05 - 9:15:17 PM EST (GMT-5)
Would you really be able to tell the difference in taste?
16 yrs ago, 5 mos ago - Sunday 12/4/05 - 10:31:35 AM EST (GMT-5)
I don't eat meat.
16 yrs ago, 5 mos ago - Saturday 12/17/05 - 6:11:42 PM EST (GMT-5)
I wouldn't mind if the animal was cloned. But I'm willing to bet anything that this will never happen. How could cloning ever be cheaper than conventional breeding?
16 yrs ago, 4 mos ago - Thursday 12/22/05 - 12:54:55 PM EST (GMT-5)
if it was proven to be safe why not
