August 19


Laying in bed this morning I had a wonderful question to ask y’all.

Unfortunately the brain deleted it. I have been sitting here for about 10 minutes trying to remember. I just know I’ll remember in about 2 hours.

I was doing some research on BVO in Mountain Dew trying to show Superman that it really isn’t smart to drink it….because 1. drinking oil??? ewwwwwwww and 2. fire retardant??? ewwwww

It led me to this which says that PepsiCo uses aborted fetal cells in flavor research and in their products to make it taste better. Senomyx says “Using isolated human taste receptors, we created proprietary taste receptor-based assay systems that provide a biochemical or electronic readout when a flavor ingredient interacts with the receptor.” however “What they don’t tell the public is that they are using HEK 293 — human embryonic kidney cells taken from an electively aborted baby to produce those receptors”.

I think I’ll stick to water.
