Cloning cows (for reproduction purposes)

USA's Food and Drugs Administration says that eating meet or milk from cloned animals is safe for humans.

Interestingly enough: cloned animals are too expensive to eat them... so why doing it?
Mostly to spread more some nice features of existing animals.

Read more about it here:

Incredibly enough for me (thinking as a European, used to decisions coming from the top of a hierarchy), there are now 90 days in which anyone (probably USA citizen) can provide comments to FDA... a nice democratic approach I'd say :)

Q: How can I throw in my opinion during the 90-day period of public comment?

A: To submit electronic comments, visit and search for docket 2006P-0415. Written comments: Division of Dockets Management (HFA-305), Food and Drug Administration, 5630 Fishers Lane, Rm. 1061, Rockville, MD 20852. Comments must be received by April 2 and should include the docket number 2006P-0415.

Truly: food for thought for us European (think about the recent European Constitution mess! :D )
