EU Backing Cloned Animal Products

Critter News

If they are cloned solely for the products they provide, will it be more difficult to argue for their welfare as living creatures? It's bad enough having to deal with the welfare of normal farm animals, but what about the welfare of cloned animals? From the Daily Mail. Concerns surround the ethics of the process, the welfare of the animals and a lack of research on food safety.

Buying dairy products supports them. That doesn't mean that 99% of dairy products are from family farms , as the average number of cows on each family farm is just over 100. I'm not one of those people who thinks family is composed of only humans or humans who are biologically related.

Also, I couldn't resist mentioning a word that was new to me until today, and it's surprising that it's new given what is is: Anthropolatry : The productive suffix -latry (from Greek, meaning "worship") clues us up that this is a form of worship, and the anthropo- part means "humankind," as it does in many related words.
