I wonder who decided it was best for us to become cannibals? The thought to me conjures up images of Ernest Shackleton in The Endurance Expedition. That’s exactly what we are doing when we allow companies like Senomyx to use aborted fetuses in our food.

The food companies and tasters are creating novel flavor enhancing compounds for the processed food industry in order to make foods and beverages that taste good.

The lack of labeling requirements is particularly troublesome since these compounds (whatever they are) are used in such minute quantities, they don’t have to be listed on the label.

They’ll simply fall under the generic category of artificial and/or natural flavors. What this means is that the product will appear to be much “healthier” than it might otherwise be, were a flavor enhancer not used.

Why is that so bad? Watch this video and see if you don’t agree…

For several years anti-abortion advocates have been warning that a new technology for enhancing flavors such as sweetness and saltiness uses aborted fetal cells in the process.

The biotech company using this novel process, Senomyx, has signed contracts with Pepsi, Ajinomoto Co. (the maker of aspartame and meat glue), Nestlé and other food and beverage companies over the past several years.

The primary goal for many of these processed food companies is to make foods and beverages tasty while reducing sugar and salt content.

While Senomyx refuses to disclose the details of the process, its patent applications indicate that part of the secret indeed involves the use of human kidney cells, known as HEK293, originating from an aborted baby.

It’s worth noting that no kidney cells, or part thereof, are actually IN the finished product.4 Rather they’re part of the process used to discern new flavors, which will be discussed below.  [Read more…]

We’ve got to stop buying this junk and get back to basics by making our own food.  There is nothing like preparing a meal for your family and knowing that it contains vitamins and minerals needed to sustain you.
