And don't forget the milk!
WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Meat and milk from cloned cattle are virtually identical to the same products from prize animals bred the old-fashioned way, researchers in Japan and the United States reported on Tuesday.
While cautioning that their study is not the definitive report on whether it is safe to eat cloned animals, the researchers said it suggested they might be.
The only differences that researchers found between the cloned animals and their "home grown" friends was that the clones had extra fat associated with them. Not only will they be able to standardize our way of getting meat to the table but increase our chances of obesity as well (as if we have enough problems with being overweight already). And you wonder why Europe is scared to eat our food?
"The fact that both clones had consistently higher amounts of mesentery fat and fatty acids compared with the comparators is hardly surprising because these two clones are genetic copies of a top breeding bull and they both exhibited the most preferable values as expected," [Xiangzhong] Yang's team wrote.
If cloned meat is what's for dinner, give me a salad. I rather eat the animals grown by God then ones grown by government/private labs. At least I know what could go wrong by eating these beasts, and from the looks of it devouring nature's beasts will lead to a healthier life as their is enough obesity in America today.
