Would you eat cloned food?
 
The FDA recently approved cloned animal products fit for human consumption. Would you eat food if you knew it was cloned?

JoeDoe 2.0 01-15-2008 08:50 PM

Cl0ned BBQ RIBS for everybody!!

Yeah sure, as long as it has the same taste anything goes

Master_Archon 01-15-2008 08:54 PM

I say....Yoda.

Other than that I see no difference between real animal products and cloned animal products.

Alkonium 01-15-2008 08:55 PM

Hey, food is food. Unless it's radioactive or poisoned, I'll eat it.

El Sitherino 01-15-2008 09:10 PM

You know what I said in the chat. I don't see a problem.

Ate it once, I can eat it again. Gimme cloned meat.

Ferc Kast 01-15-2008 09:17 PM

I say Yoda because I dunno if I would willing eat cloned food.

Sabretooth 01-15-2008 10:03 PM

As long as they don't suddenly start following Order 66 and terminate me, I'm cool with all clones - edible, non-edible.

Jeff 01-15-2008 10:25 PM

I don't think I'd mind, its the same thing, and since its animals I don't see any kind of moral issues with this.

PoiuyWired 01-15-2008 10:47 PM

Yes.
And I would not choose yoda on the grounds that a cloned 800 year old green hermit would not taste anything clsoe to delicious.

Anyone against cloned food is against feeding starving children.

thank god i voted yes then :xp:

Pho3nix 01-16-2008 07:41 AM

Yes, definitely.

Jasper_Kazai 01-16-2008 07:51 AM

...Yoda.

Not until I knew it was safe and had witnessed people eating it and not dying.

Kurgan 01-16-2008 09:21 AM

A clone is not "the same thing" (literally, like some kind of identity crisis) it's just an identical twin of whatever. So as long as the original was conceived without defects, there shouldn't be a problem with the clone (at least at the time of conception).

Cloned food would be way more expensive than regular food, so I don't really see the point right now.

So certain are you?

More or less I have issues with cloning because of the intentions used. On the issue of food, well if I agree that if scientist should try to figure out a way to clone individual organs for transplants then I don't have a problem. I chose Yoda because of the sensitivity of the issue.

Clones are cool :carms:

RobQel-Droma 01-16-2008 10:19 PM

I have nothing against cloned food, but I just had to choose Yoda. You can't go wrong with answering "Yoda" to anything and everything.

"Hey! I just ate this bacon yesterday!"

Although, on a serious note, I'm not quite sure why. I mean, why not just let (for example) the bull and the cow, uh, do their thing, and then you don't even have to bother...

Serpentine Cougar 01-16-2008 11:18 PM

Yeah, probably. But not just for the sake of saying, "Yay, I ate cloned food!"

tk102 01-16-2008 11:25 PM

I think I'm going to hold out for replicated food.

Jvstice 01-17-2008 03:25 AM

I'd eat it most likely, but only if cloning didn't go into mass production. At that point, there is a problem that occurs to me.

If you have too many clones, you make the food more prone to disease, since all copies would have teh same weaknesses and strengths to their immune system. Having the potatoes in Ireland too genetically similar are what led to the Irish Potato Famine that was responsible for a lot of the immigration to the US late last century and early this century. Also, that's why Dutch Elm Disease was so sucessful in wiping out much of the Elm trees in the Continental United States.

There's no reason to think that the same biological principles wouldnt' apply to animals as apply to our plant agricultural products.

Ray Jones 01-17-2008 04:28 AM

Cloned food is overrated. Like Picard, we all will eat food materialized from energy in the future. And it gonna be tasty. :carms:

But yes.

I would not eat Yoda, cloned or not. :carms:

I voted yes, since I most likely would eat cloned food. Not necessarily by choice, since you never really know where the food you buy comes from. :)

DeadYorick 01-17-2008 12:33 PM

Cloned food is awesome. It can solve world hunger and we could finally stop slaughtering as many cows as physically possible

How do you figure on either point? :confused:
We're cloning cows not hamburgers.

Rinku 01-17-2008 01:31 PM

Yeah TK's right we would still have to kill cows to make the hamburgers lol.

JoeDoe 2.0 01-17-2008 03:38 PM

Here's what the cows have to say:

vader815 01-18-2008 03:13 PM

as long as they don't genetically alter it (which they can do) without FDA approval... I see no problem with it. so i go yes.

What I meant was that we could finally create enough meat so we couldn't go overboard with killing cows and eventually wipe it's species off the face of the planet.

Cows extinct? McDonald's would never allow that to happen

People thought that with the Dodo and look what happened with that. If cows died out Mcdonalds would find a meat alternative. Like some chicken injected with steroids and random chemicals to taste like beef

El Sitherino 01-19-2008 01:33 AM

Cows won't go extinct unless some land is destroyed.

Ctrl Alt Del 01-19-2008 02:24 PM

yes.

i already do eat it.

LargoLaGrande 01-19-2008 05:47 PM

Since you probably won't know whether the food you gonna eat is cloned or not, you got no choice... :xp:

Rev7 01-19-2008 05:49 PM

I don't think that I would mind eating cloned food, as long as it has the same exact taste, and the meat has no problems with it. I chose, "Yoda". I don't see the practicallity of it though. Cloning an animal is a lot more expensive than just raising one. I don't think that I would mind trying it though...

says who? Remember, that by cloning an animal you got the possibility to pick the best and strongest cows or whatever to clone, and afterwards there will be no weak animals anymore on your farm.. good for the farmer, bad for the cow, cause cloned anymals are not the healthiest..

It's a good point. If you can imagine an entire herd of cattle or an entire henhouse consisting of genetically identical animals, then you can also imagine the vulnerability to a single strain of flu or other malady. It's like not diversifying your stock portfolio.

So what will farmers of clones do? Pump up the animals with vaccinations and antibiotics of course. Yum!

jawathehutt 01-19-2008 08:20 PM

As long as no body goes turnin into zombies and the such, Im fine. If they do, good thing Ive prepared...

Hallucination 01-20-2008 01:38 AM

I'm fine with it only if the original animals were bred for delicious.

urluckyday 01-20-2008 03:54 PM

Just something weird about it...probably not.
