Great! A carrot that gives you more calcium....but then 10 years from now they'll find out that it has an undiscovered potent carcinogenic....heh.

It's like I told Scott about that Lipodisolve crap....

My prediction is that in 10 years from now they will find evidence that Lipo dissolve seeped into peoples bloodstreams and erodes fatty tissue anywhere….i.e. brain

Thus the beginning of the movie Idiocracy.

Is there any mandatory labeling of food/milk from cloned animals? Or are we all just a walking science fair experiment at this point?

We are all walking experiments.
All of our food is genetically modified. You think broccoli grew like that 30,000 years ago?
I'll eat cloned food. Sign me up.

Broccoli, like just about all our vegetables, have been selectively bred into more useful forms. The wild, pre-human breeding experimentation forms would not be recognized by us.
Broccoli, cabbage, cauliflower and brussel sprouts, I think, are descended from the same plant, just for an example.

Mike,

The comment made by an FDA doc stated that there were no requirements to lable such food sources. He stated that if one wanted to ensure they were not consuming cloned products they should purchase products labeled "organic." Pretty weak response, in my opinion. I'll try and find the article and post the link.
