Creepy cloning

I’ve got to admit that this Washington Post article on the advent of cloned food creeps me out quite a bit.

I think it’s because a) cloning animals treats them as ‘things’ rather than ‘beings’, and b) because everything seems to be forgiven in the pursuit of profit. The article continually talks about how much money is involved.

The Mad Cow (CJD) and Foot & Mouth episodes over here have brought all this food factory farming stuff too close to home for comfort.
