For those who thought that genetically modified corn and soy was the worst thing to hit the American diet since corn syrup, comes news that the FDA last month approved the selling of the meat and milk of the offspring of cloned animals...Even if cloning is eventually found to be perfectly safe, there's still many other problems with meat production in America. It's not just the steroids and antibiotics that are fed to the animals that end up in the blood streams of those who consume cows, pigs and other creatures. It's also the quality of meat itself. Not to mention the cruelty inherent in raising animals to be slaughtered for food.
