MSG can be found in countless foods. Everything from soup, to crackers to meats may contain MSG. As dangerous as it is, it makes the food tastes great, its dirt cheap and its just like sugar.
Incredibly, even infant formulas and baby food contain this poison, even though babies and infants, who are four times more sensitive than adults to the toxic effects of this chemical, are most at risk.
In the 1970's food processor's "voluntarily" took processed free glutamic acid (MSG) out of baby food.But that didn't mean it was entirely removed. It was merely hidden deeper.
There are a couple of main reasons why MSG is one of the worst additives on the market. First, Dr Baylock, author of Excitotoxins: The taste that kills; states that MSG is an excitotoxin, which means that it overexcites your cells to the point of damage, acting as a poison. The second part, of the equation is that MSG can be liberally hidden in food labels, under names like broth, casein, hydrolyzed, autolyzed, and more, making it extremely difficult to identify. Be aware that they are continuously changing it's name so people cannot recognize it as MSG.
MSG can cause serious side effects in your bodily systems, including:
Cardiac
Circulatory
Gastrointestinal
Muscular
Neurological
Visual
Respiratory
Urological/genital
Skin
MSG is also probable for contributing to the obesity epidemic. As the FDA continues to vouch for its safety, scientists have known that MSG causes obesity since the 1960's!
It is clearly not worth a few babies of tasty junk to give your body the green light to produce visceral fat, the most dangerous type that surrounds your organs and increases your risk of heart attack, stroke, insomnia, type 2 diabetes and more.
Yes thats exactly what you are doing to your body when you eat MSG.
So the wisest thing you can do is avoid this chemical from your diet.
You know that if the manufactures have to try to HIDE this chemical by giving it different names, that this must be dodgy! You know, they know that this chemical is a poison but because they are getting so much money from it because it tastes so good, that its not "legally" going to be removed. So its a matter of avoiding it at all costs. Always read your ingredient lists. If you can't pronounce it or don't know what it is, then it is not food! Be wise about what you eat and what you feed others. There are so many lies in the food industry that it is actually scary! Make your own meals, plan ahead. You know what you put in your meals so you are able to accept responsibility for it.
