MSG - Do you know what it is doing to America?
Do you have any idea what MSG is? Mono sodium glutamate, better known as MSG, is a form of concentrated salt added to foods to enhance the flavor. This salt version of glutamic acid is an amino acid the body can produce on its own, but the MSG we find on store shelves is processed and comes from fermented sugar beets. Because this kind of MSG is processed, it can cause many adverse reactions, including skin rashes, itching, hives, nausea, vomiting, migraine headaches, asthma, heart irregularities, depression and even seizures Yes, you read that right--this is an addictive substance that has been known to cause all these side effects.........Go to your kitchen cabinets right now and start looking at some of the foods you are eating--you will be surprised what this little demon is in---Campbells Soups, Hostess Doritos, Lays Potato Chips, Top Ramen, Betty Crocker Hamburger helper to name a few. If you don't see the actual wording MSG, look for hydrolyzed vegetable protein--and this is just one of many names MSG can hide under. No surprise that many of the fast food chains use this and why not, IT'S ADDICTIVE...consider it NICOTINE for food. This is one area where the FDA has not stuck their nose in--they have set NO limits on how much of it can be added to food. What about the artificial sweetener you consume in diet soft drinks? If there is evidence to prove it may contribute to brain tumors--would you think about it? And if there was eveidence to prove that number of brain tumors have increased since the introduction of artificial sweeteners, would you think twice about your next Diet Pepsi? Aspartate and MSG ---they are both considered excitotoxins, which is a chemical -----and they have been shown to possibly aggravate and/or precipitate many of the epidemic neurodegenerative brain diseases to include, Parkinsons, Huntingtons, ALS and Alzheimers.............. Would you stop eating foods that contained MSG if you knew it could cause brain damage in your children and effect their nervous system in the developmental years? Maybe knowing that it could permanently damage a critical part of the brain known to control hormones, so that later in life, children may have endocrine problems? Hmmmm, migraines, headaches, Autism, ADHD and even Alzheimers--want more???
