Cloned Meat Safe to Eat

Meat and milk from cloned animals is as safe to eat as that from other animals.

The problem is the animals themselves suffer, report Dagens Nyheter. 

Many foetuses become deformed or diesoon after birth. Those that do survive into adulthood are as healthy as normal animals, says the European Food Safety Authority.

Yet, cloning is still an expensive process that means it is not economically viable to clone animals for their meat, but rather as breeding stock.

Cloning is not used by European farmers and according to the Swedish National Food Administration no cloned products are sold in Swedish shops.

The Administration add it would be unethical to use cloning techniques in normal livestock farming due to the suffering caused by the medical complications.
