Your article on "Cloned Foods" I certainly hope the FDA gives the public a choice and labels all meat and vegetables that has or will be cloned or genetically modified.

The same FDA that gave the seal of approval to thalidamide, trans fats, etc. This stuff better be labeled.

I do not understand why a cloned animal would be any different from a 'natural' animal.
