미 FDA, ‘복제동물 식품 식용으로 안전해’ (Eng)


미국 보건 관리들은 일부 복제동물에서 나온 육류와 우유는 식용으로 안전하고 판매가 허용돼야 한다고 주장했습니다.

미 식품의약국 FDA는 28일 발표한 보고서 초안에서 복제동물 식품과 일반적으로 사육된 동물 식품의 안전성에 차이가 없다는 실험결과가 나왔다고 밝혔습니다.

FDA는 이 문제를 논의하기 위해 90일간의 공개토론회를 개최할 계획입니다. 이후 FDA는 복제된 소와 염소, 돼지의 식품 판매를 권고할 예정입니다.

동물 복제 반대론자들은 복제는 흔히 동물의 유산과 기형을 초래한다고 주장하고 있습니다.

U.S. health officials say meat and milk from some cloned animals is safe for human consumption and should be approved for sale.

In a draft report today (Thursday), the Food and Drug Administration said tests show that products from cloned animals are as safe as those from traditionally bred animals.

The agency plans to open a 90-day period to consider public debate about the issue. After that, it may recommend the sale of products from cloned cattle, goats and pigs.

Critics of cloning say the process often results in miscarriage or deformities in the animals. They also note that a recent survey (by the Pew Initiative on Food and Biotechnology) showed most people would be uncomfortable buying cloned products.

Experts say cloning is used mainly to create copies of exceptional animals for breeding purposes. They say very few products from cloned animals would reach consumers.
