It is a crazy world we live in, no doubt and what China is planning to do by year end helps that be even more clear. They are getting ready to open a mass cloning factory in the northern port of Tianjin and they expect to be cloning 1 million cows a year by 2020.
What’s even more crazy is the FDA states; “meat and milk from cow, pig, and goat clones and the offspring of any animal clones are as safe as food we eat every day.”
This statement from the FDA suggests cloning factories in the USA may not be far behind China. With an ever increasing demand for meat and the growing awareness of the damage the meat industry is doing to the planet, clearly something needs to give. But is cloning really the answer? More importantly, is it a safe solution?
The company behind this radical new plan is named Boyalife and they also plan to cater to more specific needs such as police dogs and thoroughbred race horses. They also intend to introduce services to clone deceased pets, meaning your beloved pet can, in a way, live forever. Creepy? Or exciting? Will people really accept this as normal?
Boyalife claims they have no current plans to clone humans in an effort to eradicate disease, however, Xu Xiaochun, CEO of Boyalife says that may change if people become more open to the idea.
