Consumers may not be able to avoid cloned food
2008-02-18 17:36:00
Less than a dozen years after Dolly the sheep became the world's first cloned mammal, grocers and restaurateurs are digesting the fact that milk and meat from cloned animals could soon filter into their supply chains.The government took major steps toward easing cloned livestock and their offspring into the food supply in mid-January, when the Food and Drug Administration concluded they're safe to eat.The question is, will consumers swallow the new technology? And how will food businesses cope if their customers balk?Many food merchants are still framing their policies while they warily monitor public opinion. The historic commercial debut of cloning comes in an era when a significant segment of consumers have rejected other foods the FDA deemed safe, such as milk from hormone-treated cows and genetically modified corn.Cloning is an attempt to create a new animal using the DNA from an existing adult animal. The FDA, while noting that livestock cloning produces many malformed or il...

CONSUMERS UNION WANTS CLONED FOOD CLEARLY LABELED
2008-02-02 14:55:00
Survey shows 89% of consumers want labels on cloned meat, milkConsumers Union is calling on Congress to require tracking and labeling of milk and meat from cloned animals in response to the Food and Drug Administration’s assessment that food from cloned animals is safe for consumption.“The FDA’s own data show that a large proportion of cloned animals do not make it to their first birthday. Many fail to survive gestation, and others have birth defects such as squashed faces, deformed limbs, and immune deficiencies. Consumers have a right to choose whether they eat milk and meat from clones,” said Michael Hansen, PHD, Senior Scientist with Consumers Union.“It should be mandatory for clones and their offspring to be tracked and their products labeled in the supermarket,” Hansen said. “If cloning were a new animal drug, its use would be prohibited, since animal drugs must be safe for animals and well as humans. But because cloning is a new reproductive technology, there is...

US Company Claims Cloned Humans, Made Stem Cells
2008-01-23 12:02:00
A California company said on Thursday it used cloning technology to make five human embryos, with the eventual hope of making matched stem cells for patients. Stemagen Corp. in La Jolla, California, destroyed the embryos while testing to make sure they were true clones. But the researchers, based at a fertility center, said they believed their ready source of new human eggs would make their venture a success.Other experts were skeptical about the claims, published in the journal Stem Cells. If verified, the team would be the first to prove they have cloned human beings as a source of stem cells, the master cells of the body.There are several types of stem cells. Embryonic stem cells, made from days-old embryos, are considered the most powerful because they can give rise to all the cell types in the body.The Stemagen team said they got five human embryos using skin cells from two adult men who work at the IVF center. They said they had painstakingly verified that the embryos were clo...

FDA TO ALLOW CLONED ANIMALS IN FOOD CHAIN
2008-01-20 12:25:00
Agency finds no reason not to eat cloned crittersAfter years of study, the Food and Drug Administration says it sees no reason cloned livestock and their offspring cannot be used for food. The ruling comes in spite of opposition from some consumer groups and concerns by the food industry.The decision was not unexpected, as the agency had telegraphed its intentions as it completed work on the seven-year study.According to a summary of the final report posted on the FDA Web site, the government is not advocating or requiring any special labeling for products from cloned animals. Left unclear is when a voluntary moratorium on the use of cloned animals will be lifted.More than 30,000 people – ranging from consumers to industry trade organizations -- filed comments with the FDA on the proposed lifting of the moratorium. Many lawmakers also expressed reservations, with Congress passing a measure urging the FDA to carry out more studies before making its decision.The agency, apparently, ...

Cloned meat is safe - and the peanut gallery explodes
2008-01-17 23:25:00
The following rationales are valid for not wanting to eat meat from cloned animals: eating cloned meat makes you go “ewwww”; you think cloning is “playing God”; you find cloning for food an unethical use of the technology; you think cloned meat should be labeled; you think genetic engineering of food is wrong; you’re a vegetarian; you consider the technology is unethical from an animal welfare standpoint. The following is not: “the meat isn’t safe.” When I first heard about the FDA ruling, I was not at all surprised. After all, clones are nearly genetically identical to their “parent,” and so their tissues would naturally be identical to their parent’s as well. So long as the parent was edible, the clone would be too. This is, after all, the very definition of a clone: “an individual grown from a single somatic cell or cell nucleus and genetically identical to it”. And it takes no more than a middle sc...

Cloned food approved by the US
2008-01-16 18:11:00
In a showing up even further disregard for human and animal health, the US has approved the use and wholesale of cloned animals.  You can read the article here. It's amazing to me that we're actually stepping into this realm.  We already artificially inseminate turkeys and cows on a regular basis using unbelievably inhumane means (read about the 'rape rack') - and now we're breeding cows in labs to produce more milk, more meat and to grow larger faster.  What's next?

FDA Approves Sale of Meat from Cloned Animals
2008-01-16 16:35:00
The FDA concluded Tuesday that meat and milk from cloned animals is safe for human consumption, clearing the way for clones to enter the U.S. food supply.The much-anticipated decision was the culmination of years of review by the agency, which has been investigating whether cloning puts animals at risk of genetic changes that could be dangerous if consumed by humans."These products are no different than foods from traditionally bred animals," says Bruce I. Knight, Under Secretary for marketing and regulatory programs at the U.S. Department of Agriculture.The decision does not necessarily mean that milk and meat from cloned animals is likely to arrive on grocery store shelves. Producers instead are interested in using cloning techniques to replicate prize breeding stock that could then be used to sire cattle for beef or milk.In fact, the U.S. Department of Agriculture has asked producers to continue a voluntary moratorium on cloned animal products until the government and industry wo...

FDA Approves Cloned Food: Or Did They?
2008-01-15 17:55:00
I'll try to keep this one as centrist as possible and just give my thoughts, both pro and con on the subject and let the readers decide. I just caught a snippet about this news story this morning, and figured it may require at least a little looking into. CNN's few second clip merely mentioned that the FDA has approved cloned food products, but they won't be seen in stores for at least another year or two.Doesn't really say much does it, so it was necessary to find and read the actual article on the CNN.com site (read it HERE) to see what all the hub-bub was about. As it turns out, the FDA has NOT given the green light for immediate full scale production and distribution of a mass-cloned-cow industry. A 300 page report is being compiled regarding the subject, and the news flash was based on the paltry eleven pages thus far completed.Dr. Stephen Sundlof, the FDA's veterinary medicine chief has only mentioned that, "There's no evidence that meat or milk derived from healthy clon...

CLONED TURKISH ANGORA CATS GLOW RED UNDER ULTRAVIOLET LIGHT
2008-01-04 22:44:00
South Korean scientists have cloned cats that glow red under ultraviolet light, as part of research aimed at developing treatments for human genetic diseases, say officials. A team of scientists led by Professor Kong Il-keun, a cloning expert at Gyeongsang National University in Jinju, produced three glowing Turkish Angoras cats, say the country's Ministry of Science and Technology. According to the Korea Times, the scientists added red fluorescence protein (RFP) genes to the skin cells of the mother cat. They then inserted the skin cells into ova to produce cloned cats genetically modified to contain the RFP gene. "It marked the first time in the world that cats with RFP genes have been cloned. The ability to produce cloned cats with the manipulated genes is significant as it could be used for developing treatments for genetic diseases and for reproducing model, cloned animals suffering from the same diseases as humans," - says the ministry of science and technology. ...

I took this picture when we had our vacation to Florida. The cat on the picture was a stray cat wandering around the front beach villas. She loves to stay in front of our door, facing the beach. Maybe she got a crush on our two little doggies...hehehe. Cute Kitty! Anyways, I read this news talking about South Korean scientists that cloned cats by manipulating a fluorescent protein gene. The report said, it is a procedure which could help develop treatments for human genetic diseases. Sounds cool! According to thefreedictionary.com, scientists made the cats glow by inserting the fluorescent gene into the skin cells of Turkish Angora cats and then transplanting the genetically modified nuclei into eggs. But wait! they said that South Korea's bio-engineering industry suffered worldwide embarrassment after it was revealed that Hwang Woo-Suk achievement have been faked. Reports aid that he published two papers based on faked data. (Yay!) and is now standing trial on charges of fraud an...

Milk From Cloned Cows - Anyone?
2007-11-17 01:36:00
The Senate is still wrangling over the 2007-2012 Farm Bill. One new consumer-friendly amendment, vehemently opposed by the biotech industry, would force the FDA to reverse its current controversial regulations on milk from cloned animals. Despite widespread opposition from the OCA and other consumer groups, the FDA has approved the commercialization of milk from cloned animals as "safe" and will not require labels. The newly proposed Mikulski amendment to the 2007 Farm Bill would require the FDA to place a temporary moratorium on cloned milk and examine its potential health hazards for animals and humans. We have updated our Farm Bill alert to address this issue. Take action, contact your Senators
