The genetically engineered flavor enhancers work by triggering taste receptors on your tongue, effectively tricking your taste buds into sensing sweetness, saltiness, or “coolness”. We will have a generation of humanity who will be cultivated not be able to trust their senses.
The biotech company Senomyx creates novel flavor enhancing compounds for the processed food industry in order to make foods and beverages that taste good while reducing sugar and salt content. Financiers include Pepsi Co., Ajinomoto Co. (the maker of aspartame and meat glue), Nestlé and others.
Human Embryonic Kidney 293 cells commonly known as HEK 293 were derived from a human kidney cell line in 1972. Citing a 202 paper by company researchers publixhed in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, the pro-life organization Chidlren of Go for Life maintains that Synomyx, using nano technology uses HEK 293.Senomyx, using isolated human taste receptors, apparently engineers HEK cells to function like the taste receptor cells we have on our tongue.
Aborted cells are used in the development of artificial flavor enhancers by biotech company Senomyx, with which PepsiCo signed a four-year, $30 million agreement in 2010 for research and development. No Pepsi products containing Senonymx flavor enhancers should be expected until 2013.
Senomyx’s disputed cell line is HEK-293, derived from the kidney cells of an aborted baby. We could go into the weeds at this point, but Wikipedia offers an easy explanation:
Senomyx develops patented flavor enhancers by using “proprietary taste receptor-based assay systems.” These receptors are made from HEK293. HEK stands for Human Embryonic Kidney cells. These cells, which were cloned, originally came from healthy, electively aborted human embryos. Using information from the human genome sequence, Senomyx has identified hundreds of taste receptors and currently owns 113 patents on their discoveries.
Rather than using sugars and salts in their products, the products contains senomyx. Senomyx fools the senses. It will fool the tongue into thinking it is eating sugar or salt. BTW: Generically labeled as an artificial flavoring.

VLA Comment: Quote from Bittermyx (Senomyx) “Our scientists have identified the function of 22 bitter taste receptors responsible for sending the bitter taste signals in many API products used in OTC and prescription drugs. Leveraging this knowledge, Senomyx has developed a comprehensive bitter receptor profile to more effectively screen APIs and to identify the specific bitter receptors associated with bitter taste of a given API”.
You see, they are affecting the receptors on our tongues, basically without our knowledge or permission. http://www.senomyx.com/api-program/
Products using synomyx, generally unlabled:
VLA Comment: Apparently, Cog for Life has done “extensive research” on the issue and is assured that there is no fetal DNA or cloned human DNA in the final products as the technology using fetal cells were just to identify the taste receptors in order to make “chemical compounds” to alter and fool our tastebuds. Although, apparently, except for using fetal cells of healthy but aborted babies to discover the mechanism of taste receptors, the final aim was to develope chemical compounds to alter our tastebuds. My question is how good is that for our species that we can no longer can trust our God given senses? And moreover, are these chemical compounds poisonous, carcinogenic or ultimately destructive to the organic tastebud receptors?
