would you eat cloned meat? Ithink this is ridicoulas i will become a vegetarian if they clone meat. why dont they let the people vote on things like this. they are takeing advantage of everyone and if they want to clone it then we should have the right to know which meat is cloned so we can make the choice if we want to eat it. whats your opinion?

would you eat it

No absolutly not! Only if I were starving or did not know what i was eating. But when you think of it it is probably ok.Its just the thought of it ,like it is artificial meat or something.lol

I dont find it impressive enough. There is nothing wrong in having so because it is nutritious...just the thought makes it not eatable right?

yes, Thats my thought exactly .The way they are cloned doesn't make it any different , just knowing it isn't natural turns you away from it.

My problem with this is that they can do what they want to when they clone, Don't want the wings on a chicken, clone it without!
Don't use the brains on a cow, clone it out!
Don't use the tail of the pig, clone it out!

These will become designer animals in a sense they will design them for the most productivity, you will only see the parts that are most used and what is essential to keep it alive.

I would have a real hard time eating this meat if it were me, I would think of it being developed in a lab and have a real mental issue with it. I have always heard that if you seen the butchering process you would not eat meat, well I don't want to see any of it, thank you!

I think that we are getting away from the way things should be, we pay farmers not to farm, what is next?

I don't think that it should be legal to clone anything, It is just wrong, some people think that it is okay to clone animals well the next thing you know they will be cloning kids, probably already have and we don't know it.

So, would I eat the meat? Probably not and they better label it when they decide to do this. I will be raising my own or buying from the local farmers. Hope they don't let any cloned animals get into the population of ones that are not cloned. I really hope that this is voted down.

After putting it that way ,No I definitly will not eat cloned meant.I see my steak now as a brainless ,legless hunk and my pork as being tailess.Did yo know that the pig is not wasted ,you eat more than throw out.Pig's feet,tails, and so on.Sounds nasty to me.

lunchtime you got it no one will see the way its done and ive seen pictures of how they do fast growth chickens. Im definately gonna be a vegetarian when they start besides they may clone for a while before they tell us so they can say well youve been eating it for 6 months. I dont care if they clone and people want to eat it but they should have to mark it so those few sensible people dont have to eat obese induced meat.

hey everyone heres a good recipe for when they start cloneing meat.

one box of rigotoni or spiral macoroni
brocoli one bunch
cauliflower one bunch
celery 2 stalks
red and green peppers chopped up
two kinds of your favorite cheeze
red wine vinerette
mix it all together and you have everything you need for a meal.

Ok dadummy, are you going to eat some if one of us cooks it?

Where did they ever come up with this idea? I did not think that there was a meat shortage in the united states. My concern is that the restaurants will start using it and not telling us or are they all ready. Oh, god what will I be eating when I hit the McDonald's drive thru window? I am not comfortable with this idea at all and will always wonder about it when it all starts.

When is this supposed to start, wonder what marketing scam they will come up with to make this sound good enough for people to fall for it? I guess this will be a good way to change a lot of peoples eating habits if they are not paying attention before, they should be now.

I don't think they should do this and they should have to disclose that it is cloned meat in the supermarket, at resturants or any place else that you would purchase anything to do with meat. Every thing will be affected by this.

Dadummy, where do you come up with this stuff?

If someone could clone me up a filet mignon...even a good rib eye, you can bet your you-know-what that I'd eat it.

Having once killed an animal, cleaning its carcass, then cooking it, I actually think that cloned meat would be less gross--provided it looks and tastes the same. A few months ago, I saw a picture of cloned beef. It did not look anything like "what's for dinner" and I lost my appetite.

I just looked for a picture on google images; I think the current debate revolves around cloned animals...for some reason I thought the debate was about lab-grown meat, not a real animal. I cannot find the picture I saw on cnn.com several months ago (of meat grown in a petri dish). Since the issue is about cloning an animal into an embryo and subsequent artificial insemination, it doesn't bother me in the least.
