Monosodium glutamate (MSG)

Monosodium glutamate (MSG) is a flavor enhancer commonly added to Chinese food, canned vegetables, soups and processed meats. Although the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has classified MSG as a food ingredient that is “generally recognized as safe,” the use of MSG remains controversial.

MSG was removed from most foods up til about 2007 when it came creeping back in. No doubt as a consequence of a corrupt food industry and the FDA which supposedly watches out for our safety.

Here are some things health wise to be concerned with because of MSG.

Some people may have short-term reactions to MSG. These reactions — known as MSG symptom complex — may include:

* Headache, sometimes called MSG headache
* Flushing
* Sweating
* Sense of facial pressure or tightness
* Numbness, tingling or burning in or around the mouth
* Rapid, fluttering heartbeats (heart palpitations)
* Chest pain
* Shortness of breath
* Nausea
* Weakness

Symptoms are usually mild and don’t require treatment. However, some people report more severe reactions. The only way to prevent a reaction is to avoid foods containing MSG. When MSG is added to food, the FDA requires that “monosodium glutamate” be listed on the label — or on the menu, in restaurants.

If you experience any of these, avoid MSG. And send a letter to the government and thank them for being so corrupt as to include another heath hazard back into the food chain. It makes no sense to make your population sick or to kill them in the name of money.

Following is an episode of  the television show Emergency. Even in the early 1970’s they added this danger which was common to warn the public. At least then someone was trying to protect us.

Sorry, on this blog supplier, you have to go to the above address to watch. I won’t say what cheap bastards Word Press is, but to charge to show a video is a load of crap.
