MSG is a neurotoxin that is used as a food additive. It is toxic, inflammatory and causes or contributes to many diseases. It must be eliminated from your diet but avoiding it may not be as easy as you think. Here is what you need to know to avoid it and reverse its damaging effects.

Another pointless thread by bbv based off an article written by a dimwit for dimwits.

I had some acquaintances who swore that they had averse affects from MSG until they learned that their favorite organic soy was rich in MSG. Their symptoms magically vanished with education.

No more doofus threads please.

My wife once read about how bad MSG is supposed to be, and in a fit of foolishness tried to banish it from our kitchen.  This is an Asian kitchen you are talking about.  The cook threatened to quit saying she didn't know how to cook without it and wouldn't even try.  I told her I would buy it on the sly and sneak it in.

After about a month I found some stuff about how stupid the fear is in the newspaper and put it on my wife's bathroom door.  She never said a word but stopped asking about it and we were able to put it back on the food list.

One should be aware that it is mostly salt, so watch it just as you do salt if you are salt-intolerant.

Less toxic than salt.

But water is toxic too, please eliminate that from your diet.

Yea -- in the States there is "Lite" salt (a mix of potassium chloride and sodium chloride) while in Asia there is MSG (Glutamic acid and sodium chloride).  Both are used to get the saltiness of salt with about half the sodium -- although in my opinion neither is really as good as full salt -- they both have a slightly metallic aftertaste, but some people prefer that.

There are different MSGs. The ones in soy foods are naturally occurring, and don't cause ill affects.
Then there's pure chemical msg. They are the ones that cause issues, and the ones being noted here.
Know your MSGs before you blather on.
Just sayin

The Japanese tend to cook with natural msg.
the Chinese use the chemical kind.
The chemical kind is also in most processed foods.

Today, the glutamic acid component of the food additive "monosodium glutamate" is generally made by bacterial or microbial fermentation wherein bacteria used are often, if not always, genetically engineered. In this method, bacteria are grown aerobically in a liquid nutrient medium. The bacteria have the ability to excrete glutamic acid they synthesize outside of their cell membrane into the liquid nutrient medium in which they are grown. The glutamic acid is then separated from the fermentation broth by filtration, concentration, acidification, and crystallization, and, through the addition of sodium, converted to its monosodium salt.

Can you post some sources on this because I think you're confusing MSG with naturally occurring glutamates.  

MSG doesn't naturally occur in anything.  MSG is a food additive that is man-made through a various natural processes.  The most common of which is through fermentation - much like yogurt.

It has been used for more than a century and, like anything, is only harmful in doses many times higher than typical consumption levels.

Are you trying to tell us that MSG is a set of chemicals?

It's a single chemical, not a family. Please know this before you blather on.

There are people that have the wacko idea that a chemical produced in nature is different than a chemical produced in the lab. That is the nonsense my acquaintances were under. A chemical is a chemical.

You should know that, or maybe you need to learn that.

What kiddy wrote that rense article? The wiki article points out the absurdity of the claims in the rense kiddy article. The third article was pointless.

Thanks for showing us that you are doing nothing but fear mongering and ascribing to the wacko notion that there is something different about chemicals made by nature and those made in the lab. A chemical is a chemical.

About all you've showed is that if very high levels are given to rats at a very young age there are developmental problems for the rats. We also know that is salts are given in very high levels to avians at a young age it actually alters the physical structure of the intestine. There are biological responses to high levels of anything.

Keep saying Dddduuuhhhhhhh. It suggests a low brow below average post.
