LARGO, FL, October 25, 2011 (LifeSiteNews.com) The pro-life organization Children of God for Life announced today the filing of a shareholder resolution with the Securities and Exchange Commission and PepsiCo, protesting the use of aborted a fetal cell line for the research and development of flavor enhancers for their beverages.
In August 2010, PepsiCo entered into a 4-year agreement with Senomyx for the development of artificial high-potency sweeteners for PepsiCo beverages. Under the contract, PepsiCo is paying $30 million to Senomyx for the research and future royalties on PepsiCo products sold using Senomyx technology.
When the pro-life group wrote both companies requesting they use one of several non-objectionable, viable cell lines listed in their patents, Senomyx did not respond. PepsiCo did reply however, saying that this research, using cell lines derived from aborted babies, would produce great tasting, lower-calorie beverages.

>>Yes very true & now there is a group preparing to conduct a study that will examine the link between autism & the use of vaccines derived from aborted fetal cells.<<
I want to see the research about television and autism.
I'm changing my tag line to reflect my new awareness of this issue.
So, do different races or genders produce better tasting product?
They even get credit for recycling!
