While the naturally occurring glutamates in food aren’t dangerous, processed free glutamic acids like MSG are.

Not only do they cause brain damage and lead to nervous disorders, but they also cause radical hormone fluctuations. Mice injected with MSG become rapidly obese, inactive, and have other hormonal issues.

Wait! You say. Those are mice and rats. We’re people. We’re bigger, biologically different. Surely it won’t affect us the same way.

Unfortunately, that argument does not hold much weight. Humans are 20 times more sensitive to MSG than monkeys, 5 times more sensitive than rats. We have glutamate receptors on every major organ, hard-wired into our brains, and even on the tip of our tongue! That means that one fifth the level of MSG used to cause obvious brain damage to a rat will do the same to you.

And what about growing babies? It turns out that MSG is especially harmful to pregnant or nursing mothers because infants and young children are four times more sensitive to MSG than adults! Dr. Blaylock elaborates:

Many studies have shown that glutamate plays a major role in how the brain is formed during development. There is a programmed rise and fall in brain glutamate levels during brain formation, which occurs in humans not only during intrauterine life, but until the age of 27.

This oscillation in brain glutamate is very critical, and any disruption in glutamate levels has dire consequences. It has been shown that during pregnancy, a diet high in MSG increases the developing baby’s glutamate levels to those twice as high as the mother’s. This can significantly alter how the baby’s brain forms and functions.

Very high MSG intake (of any excitotoxin) can cause abnormal learning, addiction risk, behavioural  & emotional control, as well as endocrine problems later in the baby’s life.

We now know, for instance, that glutamate is the main control in neurotransmitter for the hypothalamus. This section of the brain controls most of your hormones, eating behavior, temperature control, pain regulation, and sleep habits, as well as the autonomic control of your heart, lungs and bladder. Research shows that when animals are fed with MSG early in life, they develop severe abnormalities, which include a short stature, small endocrine organs (pituitary, adrenal glands, thyroid, ovaries, testes and pancreas), and a high risk of seizures and impaired learning.

There are over 40 labelled ingredients in processed, refined or canned foods that contain glutamic acid, but you’d never know it just from their names alone. Also, in some foods glutamic acid is formed during processing &food labels give you no way of knowing it’s in.

A simple rule of thumb to know if there is MSG in a food is that: if the label reads it(always check labels of foods you eat), if a food is processed, refined or canned you can assume it contains MSG (or one of its pseudo-ingredients). So if you stick to a whole, unprocessed, fresh food diet, you can pretty much guarantee that you’ll avoid this toxin.

•One major way most people consume Mono Sodium Glutamate(MSG) is through the common Food Seasonings often  added when cooking meals which is used on a daily basis. This has caused so much of health problems such as diabetes, hypertension, stroke, seizures, depression, hormonal imbalance, infertility, acne, fibroid growth, arthritis, etc for many. It’s an healthier choice to totally avoid this poisonous& health damaging food additive (MSG) in your everyday meal.
