The NewStandard has a story on recent claims by the Center for Food Safety (CFS) that the US Food and Drug Administration "cherry picked" research findings to downplay the relationship between cloning processes and the risk of genetic abnormalities resulting from consumption of meat from cloned animals. Their claim is that the FDA's studies don't look thoroughly at consumption, but focus selectively on cloned animal physiology - assuming a direct relationship between the health of the animal and the safety of humans consuming meat from it.
The FDA's public comments period on cloned animals ends on April 2. You can also submit comments via the CFS. If their approval stands, there will be no required labeling of cloned meat to separate it from conventionally bred animals.
The contradictions of the "free market" continue to escalate.
