Well said. Labelling cloned food gives people the freedom to choose it, or to choose a substitute. That’s the free market. People like to know what they’re eating.
I’d eat cloned meat if it were good value, and I’d be glad if it brought down the price of other meat. If it’s good, why be scared of labelling it?
Just look at the fact that we don't even have country of origin labeling for food now.
Government-coerced labelling is not the free market under any definition.
If its good, why be scared of labelling it?
Because of the poll numbers stated above. Mass ignorance means that any such label is tantamount to a danger warning. And where ignorance doesn't already exist, the labelling will surely be exploited by luddites, and by certain unscrupulous people who stand to lose economically if cloned meat succeeds.
That's the real issue: behind every particle of feigned concern for the public health lies a mountain of concern for someone's wallet...and it's the consumer's.
