What we believe
Cloning is one of the biggest and most intense debates going on in the scientific world. Will it help mankind? Are there defects in the cloned subject? These questions are important to the acceptance and understanding of cloning. We personally believe that cloning is nothing but beneficial to plants, animals and mankind itself. Cloning can be used to create superior livestock. Once a cow has died, you can determine the quality of the meat. By cloning cells of the livestock with high quality meat and milk, scientists can create animals with higher quality meat and milk. Some cloned cows have even supplied almost double the amount of milk that normal cows. The FDA has stated that food from healthy clones of cattle, swine and goats is as safe as food from non cloned animals. Cloning can also be helpful medically. Humans learn a lot about disease from studying animals that have been genetically altered to carry diseases. This process takes a long time and requires many generations of breeding. Cloning theses animals could make it a much shorter and easier process, which would allow us to find cures and treatments for diseases more quickly. Also, using cloning we can make genetically identical animals for tissue and organ transplantation. Have you ever lost a pet? Using cloning, you can bring that beloved pet back. In 2001, a cat named CC was the first domestic animal ever cloned. As this becomes easier and more popular, many companies may begin to offer this pet cloning service. One of the biggest reasons for cloning is to help endangered species survive. Cloning endangered species is much easier then cloning completely extinct species because there are many living cells to chose from. Bringing back large portions of endangered species will significantly help our environment repopulate. Although it is more difficult, cloning could even bring back completely extinct species. It is unlikely that animals that have been extinct for a long time could be cloned, but animals that have been extinct for a shorter time, such as mammoths, could be brought back if DNA is found with them. ( if you would like to know the science behind this visit our "science" page). People of our generation have often pondered the thought and vision of bringing back extinct animals. A mammoth has recently been found frozen solid in deep ice. Scientists have determined that the baby mammoth could possibly be cloned because the cells have been frozen and have not yet died.
