Anti-stem cell activists target Kraft, Campbell’s and Nestle

Alphabet Soup, anti-stem cell activists
Do anti-stem cell activists eat soup?

Anyone getting tired of those anti-stem cell activists folks slamming Pepsi for supposedly using stem cells in their flavor research, when in reality the cells in question are not stem cells?

Maybe the Pepsi-haters are too as they are now reportedly on the case of Kraft and Nestle too as well as Campbell’s, which makes Alphabet Soup amongst many other products.

Where will it end?

Perhaps the haters will start boycotting stores that sell Pepsi and products of Kraft and others?

This story and the extremists behind it are so out of control they have now created a new urban myth that not only are stem cells used in Pepsi’s research on flavorings (as well as that of other companies such as Kraft, Nestle, and Campbell’s), but many of them claim that also the stem cells (which of course are not even stem cells in reality) are actually IN the drinks and food.


Uh, no.

Only exacerbating this further is an Oklahoma bill to outlaw use of fetuses in food. Are there fetuses in any food or drinks being sold in America? No.

I’m still waiting for Rush Limbaugh to stoke this false fire of damnation.

An interesting update and side note in 2020 is that Trump received a COVID-19 treatment that was tested using human fetal cells derived decades ago from an abortion.
