Perhaps AES should run a full-page ad which explains the full list of “toxic” chemicals from the EPA site (http://www.epa.gov/tri/) and answers the above questions.
Avoid meat, cloned and otherwise
The government is a step closer to lifting its ban on products from cloned animals — but what does this mean for our health? Debates over cloning were recently rekindled when the Food and Drug Administration announced it believed that milk and meat from cloned cows, pigs and goats are as safe as products from conventionally bred animals.
As a dietician, I know that eating meat — whether it’s from a cloned animal or not — poses serious health risks. Consuming even one meal high in saturated fat, which is found mostly in animal products and has long been linked to cardiovascular disease, can do immediate damage to the heart. A growing number of scientific studies are finding that eating meat is also associated with breast, colon and prostate cancer.
Cloning animals for human consumption is a serious issue, but this country has a bigger problem on its hands: As a result of our meat-heavy eating habits, obesity and type-two diabetes are reaching catastrophic levels among Americans of all ages. But these diseases won’t have much of a future if we avoid meat — cloned or not — and fill up on fruits, vegetables, beans, and other healthy vegetarian fare.
