Are you aware that you might be eating meat from CLONED cows or pigs? Or if it’s not the meat, is it the MILK from a cloned cow?
Animal cloning has been in the news for years, but who knew it was being done with commercial intent, to bring it into the hands of consumers? Not this [naive] person.
THIS IS UNSETTLING NEWS! The FDA approved it years ago…!
In 2008, the agency charged with US food safety, the Food and Drug Administration, approved consumption of meat and milk from CLONED cows, pigs and goats!
The source article this came from goes on to say:
“But the bottom line is you do not want large numbers of these animals for a number of reasons, number one being that cloned animals are generally unhealthy.“
Why is it we don’t have much of a say in what we eat anymore?
From cloning, to genetically modified organisms (GMO), and chickens genetically bred to have larger a breast, the consumer has little to say about what large corporate farms and their suppliers do to supply us with abundant food.
Wheat and corn are both GMO now to such an extent that finding non-gmo sources is often difficult. Stores can not keep enough organic / non-gmo food on the shelves!
…you just have to read the full article on Yahoo News where
The idea of tracking such animals elicits a shrug from Blake Russell, who heads Trans Ova’s animal cloning division ViaGen.
“There are cattle in the thousands globally now”, and their offspring and descendants are “going to multiply every year,” Russell said.
“It would be next to impossible to go backwards.”
I want REAL FOOD, don’t you?
Let’s be sure to buy local!
