Which Companies Test Products With Aborted Human Remains?

Guess which company uses abortion to get ahead?

Testing, testing, testing...Biotech company Senomyx uses fetal cells from aborted babies to test food additives. PepsiCo is one of the major American corporations that has a contract with Senomyx to test their food and drink products. Today we want to tell you a little more about how this testing process works, and who else, besides Pepsi, uses it.

How Does This Testing Process Work?

It’s all a bit complicated, but Mercola.com probably explains Senomyx and how their process works the best:

Senomyx is a high tech research and development business that is “dedicated to finding new flavors to reduce sugars and reduce salt.” But their focus is not on whole, organic fruits and vegetables, or grass-pastured meats, dairy and eggs. Senomyx develops patented flavor enhancers by using “proprietary taste receptor-based assay systems.”

That’s a testing system that provides scientists with biochemical responses and electronic readouts when a flavor ingredient interacts with their patented receptor, letting researchers know whether or not their flavor enhancer is effective. The receptors are made from HEK293 — HEK stands for Human Embryonic Kidney cells, with 293 denoting that the HEK was from the 293rd experiment. HEK293 originally came from a healthy, electively aborted baby whose cells were then harvested and cloned.

    1. Hello, Kate, and thanks for commenting.

      I was not aware of it, either, although I suspected it for long years.

      Pay special attention to the extra links, some regarding immunizations. Sick.

  1. Thanks for this eye-opening article. I had no idea things had gotten this low in ethics. What the world is coming to is not good. This makes me feel sick and furious; what can we do to stop this horrid trend?

    1. Hello, Babs, and welcome to Home’s Cool!
      Thanks so much for taking the time from your beautifully colorful blogging to comment, here! Yes, you are right, it is sickening and infuriating and horrid.
      What to do? I think following the link at the bottom of this post, where it says “read the rest of this story HERE” will take you to the Arkansas Family Council, which is affiliated with Focus on the Family. They are basically on top of this and that is how I got the info, by subscribing to their site. They ask for money and I am sure it is very carefully spent. If you communicate with them, they can direct you to a similar organization in your own state, if you would rather, or they would be happy to help you themselves, to learn more about activism in this matter. I can’t help but feel the caring folks in all the states would work together on this one.

      Thanks, again, for your caring response. Do come back again, soon!
