Let me rephrase that…
Are you eating meat from CLONED cows or pigs? Did you even know that you might be…?
I certainly didn’t!
Or if it’s not the meat, is it the MILK from a cloned cow?
THIS IS UNSETTLING NEWS! Not even in my wildest midnight thoughts would I have suspected that 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 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?
Wheat and corn are both GMO (genetically modified organisms) now to such an extent that finding non-gmo sources is sometimes 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!
