A quick look at Wikipedia tells me HEK293 are just kidney cells*. I have no idea what ingredient kidney cells would be replacing in a soda...I heard that Pepsi (as well as Nestl? and Kraft) were using HEK293 (Human baby embryos)!
CARBONATED WATER, HIGH FRUCTOSE CORN SYRUP, CARAMEL COLOR, SUGAR, PHOSPHORIC ACID, CAFFEINE, CITRIC ACID, NATURAL FLAVOR
It was the straw that broke the camel's back for me; then.Nobody said they CONTAIN it, from what I can tell. Even the source of the information just said that they used it to test ingredients...not that it was added.
If you believe that Pepsi put those cells in their soda, you're more gullible than a Donald Trump supporter. The whole thing is an example of what happens when clueless holier-than-thou campaigners get the attention they seek.It was the straw that broke the camel's back for me; then.
As I said, I saw Pepsi as the lessor of the two evils
No reason to worry, see the above link.I really doubt that those responsible for kosher certification would overlook something like this
The explanation is that a bunch of hardcore anti-abortion campaigners launched a somewhat successful misinformation campaign on an issue they don't understand. Possibly, they did it to extort money from the companies they targeted.especially as it seems to be on the minds of plenty of people, so there must be a good explanation for all of this.
It came down to, even if it is a hoax... Soda lost its appeal to me that day in the shop when I struggled to find a soda I wanted because I didn't want none of them in my body :lol: - that actually did leave a deep impact on my psyche, besides, I probably am better off for not drinking soda now anyway.
On the contrary, even back when I did believe it 100% with out a doubt, I didn't want to ruin Pepsi for my friends...That goes without saying. You've done the right thing for completely the wrong reason. But for the love of God, don't share this bogus horror story anywhere else.
