Perspective - January 12, 2007

Streetwise

asked in downtown Danville

Would you eat meat or dairy products from a cloned animal?

No. What God created is good enough. We don't need anything that man has tampered with. But I would get a pig heart if I needed a heart and couldn't get a human one.

Frank Hanna

owner of telecom company

I would eat it or drink it. But I would probably eat or drink something that was uncloned first.

I'd have to say not yet. Theİlong-term effects of anyİgenetic modification worry me. If the FDA gives their final approval, theyİmust mandate that cloned meat be marked as so.İFrankly, even if they don't, concerned consumers will just buy from companies that voluntarily mark products likeİtoday'sİ"organic" labeling does. Itİwould be aİconcern for meİthat we even have cloned meat in the food stream.

Jay Naganuma

IT director for international company

Absolutely, if the controls and subjects were tested appropriately. If the majority are doing it, why not? I love cloned things.

Jason Pauletich

I'm not gonna lie. I probably wouldn't because it's unnatural to clone. I don't think it's normal. If God wanted us to be cloned, he would have done it.
