Part 1 in this series on the flavor enhancer MSG or monosodium glutamate (E621) shows the hidden danger in our food today. MSG is used in thousands
of products, such as snacks, soups, sauces, meats, flavored potato chips and most Chinese food.
Trade names of MSG include Ajinomoto, Vetsin and Accent. MSG is 'hidden' in many other names, such as yeast extract, hydrolised protein and flavoring.
MSG makes your food taste better but it's NOT safe! The harmful effects of MSG include heart problems, cancer, ADHD, autism, growth disruptions, learning disorders, behavioral problems, obesity, hormonal imbalance, damage to the retina, etc.
Many problems don't become obvious until puberty. This is caused by poor functioning of the hormones due to exposure to MSG in the first few years of life. MSG affects many parts of the body including heart, muscles, nerves, circulation, skin, eyes, stomach, intestines, respiration, etc.
Losing weight is nearly impossible if you consume MSG as it increases appetite! The consumption of MSG, in addition to the consumption of trans fats and artificial sweeteners, is the main cause of the present obesity epidemic.
