A sour method for measuring sweetness

According to a Florida-based pro-life organization, a biotech company is using aborted fetal cell lines to test food flavor enhancers.

Debi Vinnedge, executive director of Children of God for Life, is calling for a boycott of major food companies partnering with Senomyx, a San Diego-based firm that produces artificial flavor enhancers using aborted fetal cell lines to test their products. She explains the process.
 
"They take their artificial flavor enhancers, which are made using little molecules, and they put them on that aborted fetal cell line [which] elicits a response...," says Vinnedge. "So they know whether they're getting the right reaction, whether it's going to produce that proper sweet taste as opposed to maybe another flavor."
 
The pro-life activist argues there is no need to use aborted fetal tissue in this process, saying the truth is that Senomyx can use other cell lines, such as from animals. That, she says, raises the question of why those alternative sources are not used instead.
 
"...In one of their responses to us, [Nestlé] said this is such a well-established cell line that was used widely in scientific research -- and so what? It doesn't matter that it is. It's just readily available," she remarks.
 
The tissue in question comes from a baby aborted in the 1970s. Scientists create a cell line, freeze it in liquid nitrogen, and then take it out for use in their experiments.
 
The primary firms doing business with Senomyx are Pepsico, Kraft, Campbell Soup, and Nestlé.

Pro-lifers' beef with Pepsi

Several pro-life groups are calling for a boycott of PepsiCo because of its business relationship with a company that uses aborted fetal cells to develop artificial flavor enhancers.

The partnership between Pepsi and Senomyx, a biotech firm that uses cells from aborted babies, is an issue with pro-lifers (see related story). Debi Vinnedge of Children of God for Life suggests that PepsiCo could be using another option.

"Senomyx makes flavor enhancers for various food companies, and what they're doing is, in their research and development, they're using aborted fetal cell lines to test those flavor enhancers," she explains.

That is done to see if foods have the proper flavor. Campbell's Soup used to do that also, but has since severed its relationship with Senomyx.

"But Pepsi, on the other hand, has taken a stand of 'well...it's just helping us to create great flavors in our drinks.' They just seem to be missing the boat," the pro-lifer contends. "So several pro-life groups decided that we should get together and boycott these companies."

Information on how to contact Pepsi is on the ministry's website. Meanwhile the Children of God for Life president is planning to launch boycotts against other firms, including Nestlé, to encourage them to stop using cell lines from aborted babies.

Campbell Soup cuts ties, others elusive

Outrage continues over major food companies and their relationship with a firm that uses aborted fetal cells to test food flavor enhancers.

Campbell Soup, Nestlé, Solae, Pepsico and Kraft have been listed as partners with the bio-tech firm Senomyx (see earlier story). Debi Vinnedge, executive director of Children of God for Life, tells OneNewsNow one company was quick to respond.
 
"Campbell Soup actually met earlier and made the decision to sever all relations with Senomyx," she reports. The firm has also been removed from the Senomyx website.
 
Solae has responded by saying it does not have an active relationship with Senomyx, but it is still listed as a partner on the latter's website. Nestlé points out the fetal cell line being used worldwide is from a baby aborted in the 1970s, and it would be difficult to stop using them. The response from Vinnedge?
 
"Well, that's ridiculous. Of course they can do it," says the spokeswoman. "There's no reason to use aborted fetal cell lines to test food additives."
 
She adds that Pepsi was "very, very evasive" in its response. "Pepsi simply talked about how great it was going to make their beverages taste," she states, "and that their goal was to reduce sugar and MSG in products."
 
Vinnedge says the boycott continues against the remaining firms.

That is pretty sick.  I am sure they do have the means to test this without using a murdered child from the 1970's.

Company Using Aborted Fetal Cells in Flavors Shields Partners


The company that was found to be testing their food additives using fetal cells from abortions is now working to hide the names of the corporations it contracts with as a pro-life boycott continues.
LifeNews.com reported on the controversy in March when information came to light showing biotech company Senomyx was found to be testing their food additives using fetal cells from a line based on cells from a baby victimized by abortion. Senomyx ignored a letter from the pro-life group Children of God for Life, which complained about its practices.

Now, the pro-life group informs Lifenews.com that Senomyx is attempting to hide the names of their corporate partners by removing them from their website.

“Public backlash has apparently caused much consternation for the biomedical firm that has ignored consumer complaints and continues to use HEK-293 (human embryonic kidney) cells in the research and development of artificial flavor enhancers,” says Debi Vinnedge, executive director of CGL.

The move by Senomyx comes after PepsiCo, one of the biggest corporate partners, ignored pro-life criticism in a canned recent response to customer letters, saying, “With respect to the flavor discovery research with Senomyx, we utilize techniques that have been the gold standard for several decades.”
 




“If this ‘gold standard’ is no big deal, then why are they trying so hard to hide the truth?” asked Vinnedge. “PepsiCo and Senomyx have done everything in their power to trivialize what they are doing, when in fact what they are doing is only further damaging their public image.”

Vinnedge says she wrote to all of the members of the board of directors of PepsiCo in late June noting their responsibility to protect shareholders’ interests and cautioned that further action would be taken if nothing is done. Since PepsiCo is funding the research and development and will pay royalties to Senomyx for product sales, the company has the ability to change the technology being utilized, but she indicates none of the board members have responded.

Company hiding affiliates from public

Senomyx, a company accused of using cells from aborted babies to test flavor enhancers, has removed the names of its clients from its website, likely in response to public backlash.

The biotech firm is producing flavor enhancers for several major corporations, including PepsiCo. Since exposing its use of cells from aborted babies, Children of God for Life Executive Director Debi Vinnedge tells OneNewsNow two firms have ended their business relationships with the company. Several, however, still remain.

"You know, people are outraged, and they have been writing to these companies," Vinnedge reports. "And I was notified that Senomyx had actually taken all the company names off of their website in an attempt to shield them from the public."

The pro-lifer tells more about how the aborted baby cells are used in Senomyx's lab.

"Whenever they introduce a flavor to the cells that they're using, there's a certain protein in those cells, and it sends a chemical signal out [that] says 'yes you've got it,'" she explains. "In other words, it's basically their way of confirming that they've achieved the right flavor that they're trying to get."

But Vinnedge stresses the same result can be obtained from other sources, such as insects or other mammalian cells -- anything that has the needed type of protein. So she urges people to continue boycotting one of the Senomyx customers, Pepsico, as a way to encourage other clients to stop using fetal cells from aborted babies.

Pepsi shareholders demand company stop using aborted fetal cell lines in flavor research

The pro-life organization Children of God for Life announced today the filing of a shareholder resolution with the Securities and Exchange Commission and PepsiCo, protesting the use of aborted a fetal cell line for the research and development of flavor enhancers for their beverages.

In August 2010, PepsiCo entered into a 4-year agreement with Senomyx for the development of artificial high-potency sweeteners for PepsiCo beverages.  Under the contract, PepsiCo is paying $30 million to Senomyx for the research and future royalties on PepsiCo products sold using Senomyx technology.

When the pro-life group wrote both companies requesting they use one of several non-objectionable, viable cell lines listed in their patents, Senomyx did not respond.  PepsiCo did reply however, saying that this research, using cell lines derived from aborted babies, would produce “great tasting, lower-calorie beverages.”

Food containing fetuses targeted under new Oklahoma bill


You might think this is a story out of 'The Onion' but it is a real story.

An Oklahoma lawmaker files a bill to ban the making and selling of food or products that use aborted human fetuses.

State Senator Ralph Shortey says he's done research and found reports that companies have used stem cells in the research and development of food.

“I don’t know if it is happening in Oklahoma, it may be, it may not be.  What I am saying is that if it does happen then we are not going to allow it to manufacture here," says Shortey

The lawmaker that represents Oklahoma County couldn’t give any specific examples.

“There is a potential that there are companies that are using aborted human babies in their research and development of basically enhancing flavor for artificial flavors," says Shortey.

Some argue there has to be more to the proposed bill and believe it is a back door attempt to ban stem cell research.

Shortey says it is not, although he admits, he would support and vote for a ban on stem cell research in the state.

A number of food makers have denied the claims.

Pepsico to cut 8,700 jobs; 4Q net rises

PepsiCo said it plans to cut 8,700 jobs, or about 3 percent of its workforce, as it tries to offset higher costs for ingredients and increased spending on advertising and marketing in North America.

The maker of everything from Pepsi soda to Doritos chips said it expects the restructuring will save the company $1.5 billion by 2014 — on top of $1.5 billion in cost cutting it previously announced.

Pepsi announced the layoffs on Thursday as it reported better-than-expected fourth-quarter profit, but forecast a decline in adjusted 2012 earnings. On the mixed news, the company's shares fell 2.7 percent.

Hopefully they will go out of buisness. Sick disgusting corporation.

Obama agency rules Pepsi use of cells derived from aborted fetus ‘ordinary business’


The Pepsi Company, which is set to release the new product Pepsi Next in the coming weeks, is facing a more robust boycott as pro-life activists protest the company use of cells derived from an aborted fetus in flavor-enhancing research. But Pepsi has succeeded, with help from the Obama Administration, in keeping its controversial operations from consideration by its shareholders.

In a decision delivered Feb 28th, President Obama’s Security and Exchange Commission (SEC) ruled that PepsiCo’s use of cells derived from aborted fetal remains in their research and development agreement with Senomyx to produce flavor enhancers falls under “ordinary business operations.”

The letter signed by Attorney Brian Pitko of the SEC Office of Chief Counsel was sent in response to a 36-page document submitted by PepsiCo attorneys in January, 2012.  In that filing, PepsiCo pleaded with the SEC to reject the Shareholder’s Resolution filed in October 2011 that the company “adopt a corporate policy that recognizes human rights and employs ethical standards which do not involve using the remains of aborted human beings in both private and collaborative research and development agreements.”


PepsiCo lead attorney George A. Schieren noted that the resolution should be excluded because it “deals with matters related to the company’s ordinary business operations” and that “certain tasks are so fundamental to run a company on a day-to-day basis that they could not be subject to stockholder oversight.”

Debi Vinnedge, Executive Director of Children of God for Life, the organization that exposed the PepsiCo-Senomyx collaboration last year was “appalled by the apathy and insensitivity” of both PepsiCo executives and the Obama administration.

“We’re not talking about what kind of pencils PepsiCo wants to use – we are talking about exploiting the remains of an aborted child for profit,” she said. “Using human embryonic kidney (HEK-293) to produce flavor enhancers for their beverages is a far cry from routine operations!”

PepsiCo also requested the resolution be excluded because it “probed too deeply into matters of a complex nature upon which shareholders cannot make an informed judgment.”

“In other words, PepsiCo thinks its stockholders are too stupid to understand what they are doing with the remains of aborted children,” Vinnedge stated. “Well they are about to find out just how smart the public really is when they turn up the heat on the world-wide boycott!”

Oklahoma Senator Ralph Shortey has proposed a bill SB1418 banning the sale of products that are developed with or contain aborted fetal remains. In the case of Pepsi products, the cells derived from the aborted fetus do not end up in the final product.

“We commend the Senator for his courageous move,” noted Vinnedge. “The public is already saying no thanks to all Pepsi beverages and Pepsi Next is just that – the “next” product to avoid!”

To date, the world-wide boycott has expanded to include Canada, Germany, Poland, UK, Ireland, Scotland, Spain, Portugal, Australia and New Zealand.

Pepsi and other companies claim that the cells used for flavor enhancement do not go into the product.

But how do we know that no fetal cells end up in the final product? These people have lied to us about everything else, why would they stop at that?

It's madness...they even use fetal cells to culture vaccines now...they are injecting human sacrifice into the veins of all Americans!

You pretty much should just stay away with mainstream brand processed foods, condiments, and ingredients. Stick with the local, homegrown, natural and/or organic varieties as much as possible. Otherwise you may be an unwitting participant of child sacrifice through fetus ingestion.
