MSG and It’s Devastating Effects!

This is an article I received on health and  Neuropathy

 

 

Following the Second World War, food companies discovered monosodium glutamate (MSG), a food ingredient the Japanese had
invented in 1908 to enhance food flavors.Unfortunately, MSG is extremely toxic, especially to your nervous system.The fast food industry could not exist without MSG and other
artificial meat flavors to make their sauces and spice mixes. The sauces in processed foods are basically MSG, water, thickeners and some caramel coloring.MSG tricks your tongue into thinking that it is getting something nutritious when it is getting nothing at all except some very toxic substances.Almost all canned soups and stews contain MSG. Worcestershire sauce, many salad dressings, rice mixes, dehydrated soups, as well as anything that has a meat-like taste can have MSG in it.

Most processed vegetarian foods contain these flavorings. The list of ingredients in vegetarian hamburgers, hot dogs, bacon, baloney, etc., often includes “hydrolyzed protein”

(another name for MSG) and other “natural” flavorings. Almost all soy-based foods contain large amounts of MSG.

In 1957 scientists found that mice became blind and obese when given MSG. In 1969, MSG was found to cause damage in specific regions of the brain. Subsequent studies confirmed this.

MSG is a substance that has a toxic effect on nerves and the nervous system that causes a wide range of reactions, from temporary headaches to permanent brain damage.

We are experiencing today more cases of Alzheimer’s, brain cancers, seizures, multiple sclerosis, and diseases of the nervous system. One of the chief contributors to these conditions are these flavorings in our food.

Ninety-five percent of processed foods contain MSG.

In the late 1950’s it was added to baby food. After some congressional hearings on this subject, the baby food manufacturers stated they had taken it out of the baby food, but they didn’t really get rid of it.

They just called it by another name – “hydrolyzed protein.”

Many foods that you may purchase that say “spices” or “natural flavors” may contain MSG. The food industry avoids putting MSG on the label by putting MSG in spice mixes.

Legally, if the mix is less than 50 percent MSG, manufacturers don’t have to put it on the label. The term “No MSG” on food labels has virtually disappeared.

This substance is so harmful to your body that you want to avoid all foods containing MSG. To do this successfully you must take the time when shopping to

read the ingredients labels on the foods you purchase.

To help you to determine what foods actually contain MSG we have compiled a list of ingredients (in alphabetical order) that ALWAYS contain MSG.

Autolyzed plant protein
Autolyzed yeast
Calcium caseinate
Glutamate Textured protein
Glutamic acid

By eliminating as much MSG as possible from your diet, it will result in greatly improved health for you and your loved ones, both now and in the future.
