TOKYO, Japan, Dec 2 (LSN) – Richard Seed of Chicago, who gained notoriety in January by proposing to start cloning humans for profit, has found acceptance for his schemes in Japan. Japanese scientists and government officials in search of cloning technology for their cattle industry have agreed to allow Seed to set up an animal cloning clinic and an in vitro fertilization centre on the Japanese island of Hokkaido where Seed expects to set up shop in August.  The Associated Press reported that James Ryan, a Tokyo-based consultant for Seed said that US $15 million has already been raised in support of the controversial physicist. In regards to cloning,  Seed, who had initially planned to clone himself said, “I switched to a clone of my wife because people say if I clone myself it would be an ego trip.”
