Eating meat or drinking milk from cloned cows is safe

Everything is good in the cloned cow. An independent investigation has shown that "there was no difference between ordinary cattle and cloned cattle," said Andrew Wadge, the scientific director of the UK food safety, the Food Standards Agency (FSA), quoted Thursday by the Daily Telegraph.

The study "has confirmed that between meat and milk from cloned cows and the same food produced conventionally, there was no substantial difference. It is therefore unlikely that there is a risk to food security. No trace of allergies, toxins or side effects were detected.

Similar results obtained in 2005

This study was launched after the revelation in August that meat from cattle born to a cloned cow had been sold in Britain in 2009. A discovery that sparked a lively debate in the realm of ethics on animal cloning. A similar survey conducted by American and Japanese scientists in 2005, had already reached the same result as the animal is healthy.

The news was enough to reassure the British farming community in which many people believe that cloning is nothing more than a sophisticated technique of reproduction, no more controversial than artificial insemination.

Already cloned meat in the UK plates?

"The evidence showing that cloning is safe accumulate. But to encourage producers to fight against public opinion and to submit an application to market milk from cloned animals, it remains to be seen," cautions, however, a spokesman for the British dairy industry at the Daily Telegraph.

Satisfied or not, British consumers have anyway already tasted them blind to the cloned roast beef, the FSA has admitted in September that the U.S. had cloned meat because of the relaxation of import rules on this type of food.

And you, what do you think? Would you trust food from cloned animals?
