makes a bit more sense to me to start on the plants and work your way up to the most highly developed organisim...they could definitley do a lot of good with cloning though, like take nerve cells for example they never divide that is why if they become damaged you have paralisis but if you just cloned some new ones you'd be able to move again. and all you have to do is clone individual cells but i see no reason to want to clone a human no good could come of it that old saying my bio teacher used to tell us "if there is even the slightest possibility that something can go wrong it will" As far as food shortages go, what about space...i mean where the hell are we gonna put these people should a new race of clones develope, eh we were about due to colonize Mars anyway right?
