"We already put too many things into our bodies without knowing what they really are. Personally, I won't eat anything I haven't had before, no matter how delicious and fancy it may be."

Wang Li, 62, retired teacher in Beijing

"Yes, but not now. I will definitely try

it when this sort of cloning technology is safe."

Wang Jianping, 50, taxi driver in Beijing

"No. I don't think it's ethical to apply cloning technology into the food industry just to make a profit. But I am a supporter of cloning technology if it is used to save endangered species."

Wen Dawei, 50, IT professional in Shanghai

"No, I would rather pay more to get some natural beef. Honestly, the first thing I think of when I think about cloning is cloned people, which isn't appealing."

Wang Shuni, 20, university student in Wenzhou, Zhejiang province

"Yes. Why not? For me, cloned food is just the product of a genetic copying process, so it should be safe. But I think the public would be more convinced if scientists published more articles to explain this new technology."

Fang Bin, 59, businessman in Shanghai

"No, because I am a supporter of natural food. More important, we are still not sure whether this cloned beef is 100 percent safe."

Lin Xiangrong, 30, emigration specialist in Handan, Hebei province
