Do you recall the Pepsi scandal which spoke of HEK293 a taste enhancer being added to Pepsi and other products where as HEk 293 was stated to contain Aborted Human Ebyols ......
Now its 2014 where there are rumours that HEK 293 was approved and now is within these products. And as we purchase them we are constructing a gene base which is acceptable to disease like ebola. Human Embryonic Kidney 293 cells, commonly known as HEK 293, are a specific cell line which, as the name denotes, were derived from the kidney cells of an aborted human embryo in 1972. This cell line is widely used in efforts such as cell biology research and biotechnology/pharmaceutical development.
Senomyx is a U.S.-based biotechnology company focused on "discovering and developing innovative flavor ingredients for the food, beverage, and ingredient supply industries," primarily additives that amplify certain flavors and smells in foods.
A controversy over Senomyx originated with the pro-life organization Children of God for Life, which maintains that Senomyx uses HEK 293 in its flavor ingredient withn major food companies (including Nestle, Campbell's Soup, Kraft Foods, and PepsiCo) partnered with Senomyx:
Activation of PKR (double-stranded-RNA-dependent protein kinase) by DNA plasmids decreases translation, and limits the amount of recombinant protein produced by transiently transfected HEK (human embryonic kidney)-293 cells. Co-expression with Ebola virus VP35 (virus protein 35), which blocked plasmid activation of PKR, substantially increased production of recombinant TPL-2 (tumour progression locus 2)-ABIN-2 [A20-binding inhibitor of NF-κB (nuclear factor κB) 2]-NF-κB1 p105 complex. VP35 also increased expression of other co-transfected proteins, suggesting that VP35 could be employed generally to boost recombinant protein production by HEK-293 cells

Six of the Nation’s Largest Food Companies & the Walmart Foundation to Generate 28 Million Meals & $3 Million in Donations to American Food Banks
Celebrity Chef G. Garvin is ready to explain why the FIGHT HUNGER, SPARK CHANGE Campaign is being launched at a critical time for many Americans. Food banks are facing a growing need for donations due to historically high food prices and drought conditions threatening to drive up the prices of fresh produce and meat. In fact, Feeding America recently released its Hunger in America 2014 report showing that in a single year one in seven Americans, including 12 million children, turn to the Feeding America network for food assistance.
To help meet this need, the Walmart Foundation is teaming up with six of the nation’s largest food companies – including General Mills, Unilever, Hormel, ConAgra Foods, PepsiCo/Quaker and Kellogg Company – to distribute $3 million to food banks and local partner agencies across the country. On Sept. 25, join Chef ‘G’ in the kitchen as he explains the importance of making sure that families have access to nutritious meals. For more information, visit: www.walmart.com/fighthunger.
