The FDA just approved cloned meat for human consumption. I find this completely outrageous and just as disturbing is that they have also decided that since cloned meat is just like real meat, they won't disclose on food packages that you are purchasing cloned meat. I was a vegetarian for 6 years and have recently been moving back in that direction. This news has pushed me back over the edge. Since it was announced yesterday, the public has 90 days to respond. Go to the FDA website, look under "Hot Topics" in the right hand column, and choose "Animal Cloning." From there you can read a brief article on the subject and towards the bottom are links to comment on the decision. Remember that the public only has 90 days to comment so go tell them whether you love it or hate it!
