(BBC) – The BBC wants you to think that cloned meat from the dead carcases of cows is good for you and that it “will become the norm” within ten years. Continue reading
(NaturalNews) We already know that cloned beef has entered the food supply both in the United States (http://www.naturalnews.com/023718_f…) and the UK (http://www.naturalnews.com/029411_c…). Now, thanks to revelations from JR Simplot, a U.S. company specializing in the cloning of cows for beef production, we’re learning that dead cows are cloned to produce the next generation of beef cattle.
Here’s how it works: A large number of cows are slaughtered and then chopped into steaks that are tested for their flavor, texture and other qualities important to steak eaters. The source animal of each steak is recorded, and cells from that source carcass are preserved for possible cloning in case the steak turns out to taste good. Once all the steaks are gauged for their desirability, the dead cow carcasses from which the flesh was cut to produce the steaks are harvested for their DNA.
This DNA is then used to clone new cows who are fed, raised and slaughtered to see how their flesh steaks taste. This cycle is repeated through multiple generations in order to “evolve” cow clones with great-tasting flesh. Continue reading

The petition, delivered by activists wearing “cloned” masks of Prime Minister David Cameron, was hastily organised after news emerged this week that meat from offspring of a cloned cow had entered the food chain.
Written by Compassion for World Farming, the petition called for more openness about food production and expressed concern about the welfare of cloned animals. Read Entire Article
