Aborted Fetal Cell Lines Used to Test Flavors For Food

PepsiCo, Kraft Foods, and Nestle are all partnered up with a biotech company called Senomyx "which uses HEK-293 (human embryonic kidney calls) to produce flavor enhancers for beverages and foods."

According to the Senomyx website, "Using isolated human taste receptors, we created a proprietary taste receptor-based assay systems that provide a biochemical or electronic readout when a flavor ingredient interacts with the receptor." The companies that have partnered with Senomyx "provide research and development funding plus royalties on sales of products using their flavor ingredients."

What is not told is that HEK 293 cells are "human embryonic kidney cells taken from an electively aborted baby to produce those receptors."

There are many other types of cells both human and non-human that can be used for the same testing that are not obtained through abortion.

  1. how would they like it if THEIR OWN ABORTED BABY were aborted and the fetal cell was used to help these companies, would they then eat or drink these products, or what if it was they themselves and their mothers aborted them and used their aborted fetal tissue, could they digest it or throw up !!!!

  2. these companies need to make the ingredients and the research companies labeled on their products, there should be a section in the supermarket that says, Isle 1. aborted fetal tissue research foods, who would buy it then, remember this is being exposes as we speak, pass it on !!!!
