MSG: Is This Silent Killer Lurking in Your Kitchen Cabinets

Story at-a-glance -

  • Monosodium glutamate (MSG) is a flavor enhancer added to thousands of foods you and your family regularly eat. It's also one of the worst food additives on the market
  • MSG is an excitotoxin, which means it overexcites your cells to the point of damage or death, causing brain damage to varying degrees, and potentially even triggering or worsening learning disabilities
  • Common adverse effects linked to regular consumption of MSG, include: obesity, eye damage, headaches, fatigue and disorientation, depression, rapid heartbeat, tingling and numbness
  • Early studies suggested 25 percent to 30 percent of the US population was intolerant of MSG at levels then found in food. Today, an estimated 40 percent of the population may be impacted
  • In general, if a food is processed you can assume it contains MSG (or one of its pseudo-ingredients). Eating a whole, fresh food diet is your best, if not only, guaranteed way to avoid this toxin
