Meat and Milk from Cloned Animals in America's Food Supply? Early this year, the Food and Drug Administration announced that meat and dairy products from cloned animals were safe to eat . The Department of Agriculture immediately called for a " voluntary moratorium ," asking farmers to keep cloned animals off the market indefinitely, to buy time to build acceptance among US and foreign consumers. Americans are already eating meat, not from cloned animals themselves but from their progeny. This discussion was recorded in January, but our guests tell us nothing has changed. If nobody can tell the difference, what's the problem? Is it cruel to animals? Should it be labeled?
Meat and Milk from Cloned Animals in America's Food Supply? The Food and Drug Administration announced this week that meat and dairy products from cloned animals are safe to eat , but the Department of Agriculture is calling for a " voluntary moratorium " for time to build public acceptance among US and foreign consumers. Meantime, it's possible that Americans are already eating meat, not from cloned animals themselves but from their progeny. If nobody can tell the difference, what's the problem? Critics say it's expensive, inefficient and cruel to animals. Should such food be labeled? We hear from critics and advocates, and from a high-profile chef who conducted a double-blind test comparing porterhouse steaks from the progeny of a cloned bull and a conventional one.
Will the Senate write a healthcare bill in secret? While Democrats and Republicans argue White House relations with Russia, another question is being decided behind closed doors: who gets help buying health insurance and who doesn't? We hear how the pros and cons are being shrouded in secrecy.
The Trump agenda: where's the beef? President Trump says big things are happening. After celebrating a House bill on health care, he doesn’t yet have Senate agreement. With James Comey’s public testimony scheduled tomorrow, the President today tweeted his selection of a new FBI Director. Is the Chief Executive all style and no substance? Later, terror attacks in Iran and conflicting claims about who’s behind them.
