The Obama Administration has given its blessing to PepsiCo to continue utilizing the services of a company that produces flavor chemicals for the beverage giant using aborted human fetal tissue. LifeSiteNews.com reports that the Obama Security and Exchange Commission (SEC) has decided that PepsiCo’s arrangement with San Diego, Cal.-based Senomyx, which produces flavor enhancing chemicals for Pepsi using human embryonic kidney tissue, simply constitutes “ordinary business operations.”
To you health! – maybe not a good toast if you are drinking Pepsi 😉
* Note – I am grateful to Pepper (see comment below) who brought to my attention that this potentially may not be true: “Snopes says that this is a bit of an Urban Legend. Apparently Pepsi uses the cell line for research, however, the cells are not in Pepsi itself.”
I still think that this is a terrible drink to consume and if this will deter some from drinking Pepsi I will be happy. Since this is not in any way a harmful suggestion to stop drinking Pepsi, I figured I will keep the post.
