Farm Bill takes a stand against cloned food

It looks like the senate is finally waking up to the crazy push for cloned animals in our food supply. Last Friday, the senators passed a provision to the Farm Bill that will delay the FDA's endorsement of using food from cloned animals. The amendment calls for a "rigorous and careful review" of the economic and health impact of cloned food. Say what? You mean the FDA was planning to introduce cloned food without testing its safety--despite the fact that most cloned animals are sickly and die young? Thank co-sponsors Senators Barbara Mikulski (D-Md.) and Arlen Specter (R-Pa.) for recognizing the insanity in this situation. Because who wants to eat cloned food that hasn't been sufficiently tested for human safety? Exactly: No one. Watch for a similar story in our January issue, which should hit the shelves (and our website) in the next two weeks. I'd love to hear what you guys think!
