Senomyx: Human Fetal Cells in Food

This petition had 38 supporters

Senomyx develops patented flavor enhancers by using "proprietary taste receptor-based assay systems." 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.

According to the Weston A. Price Foundation:

"Senomyx's salt taste, savory flavor, and sweet flavors -- as well as all their other flavor enhancers -- are purposefully developed so that they stimulate your taste buds without them actually tasting anything ... Much like MSG, these flavor enhancers operate on the neurological level to produce these reactions ...

Since they are not actually ingredients but rather 'enhancers' they are not required to be listed in a package's ingredients except as 'artificial flavors' ... [And] because very small amounts of the additives are used ... Senomyx's chemicals have not undergone the FDA's usual safety approval process for food additives."

As Weston says, the FDA does not have to approve this and food companies need only label it as artificial flavors". To me, this isn't whats disturbing, its the fact that this company is using human babies to make our food "taste better". As a community of the human race we must stop this company from using human life for food. If we don't stop this we may be allowing a dangerous precedence for other companies to continue, or start using aborted human life for other more heinous purposes.

Stand with me in making this illegal.
