I just recently learned of an appalling fact. Senomyx, a biotech company, has been using aborted fetal cells for artificial flavoring, specifically HEK-293 (Human Embryonic Kidney cells). PepsiCo has just recently agreed to partner with them, for flavoring in PepsiCo products. You can see my other post about it here. I urge you to email PepsiCo, Senomyx, and even refuse to drink PepsiCo products. Who would want to after knowing what's in them?! You can find the email contacts at the link above.
Please post about this somewhere! Tell a friend, tell a dozen! Get the word out, and boycott! I certainly don't want to be drinking something that could contain aborted fetus cells, and I'm pretty sure you don't either!
If you do post about this somewhere, link me up here. I want to see all the noise we can make!
Here's a list of the many PepsiCo products. Even though they claim not to be using HEK-293, they are still funding it. Please consider avoiding these and giving money to a company that funds this atrocious act!!
Mountain Dew, Pepsi, Sierra Mist, Sobe, Amp, Tropicana, Dole, Gatorade, 7 Up, Lipton, Aquafina, Mirinda, Naked Juice (ugh), Propel, Izze, Aunt Jemima syrup, Frito Lay, Walkers, Tostitos, Sunchips, Doritos, Twistos, Lays, Quaker, Near East, RiceARoni, Cap'n Crunch, LIFE cereal, Ruffles, Cheetos, Lebedyansky, Smith's, Sabrita's, Mother's, Gamesa, Fritos, Nestle, and Lays.
