Supersize Me

Wednesday, July 29th, 2009

“Supersize Me” advertises the fast food market, and so it happens. We eat more calories than we need and mostly empty calories at that and wonder why we become supersized. The MSG, hydrogenated ingredients and preservatives in the supersized food adds to our weight and our ill health. We wonder why our clothes don’t fit, our stomach is upset and heartburn sets in.  MSG (monosodium glutamate) was used by Japan to make food taste better for their soldiers in WWII and we copied their toxic ways. Fortunately some companies are now avoiding MSG but look at the label and you still see it all too frequently. Basically processed foods have too many toxins for people to remain healthy and so we turn to drugs to make us feel better. A healthy alternative is to eat “real” food, which hasn’t been injected with chemicals, which destroy the balance in our health. When you keep ingesting toxins the body is weakened and succumbs to all kinds of ailments.

To live the life we were born for we need to go back to eating the way our parents and grandparents did before World War II.

MSG (monosodium glutamate)

Saturday, July 18th, 2009

Dr. Russell Blaylock points out that MSG is getting negative press so the food barons come out with another substance called hydrolyzed vegetable protein that contains excitotoxins. (Excitotoxins are a group of amino acids which are building blocks of proteins that are called glutamate, aspartate, and cysteine.) The food manufacturers add tons of these excitotoxic amino acids to all kinds of food, even baby foods.

MSG is a known dangerous brain-toxic compound put in baby food. MSG not only adds tastiness to food it also causes damage to the nervous system. There are a whole class of chemicals that can produce very similar damage.

Now that you know this chemical added to food can cause brain damage in young children, and it could affect how your child’s nervous system formed that in later years may cause learning or emotional difficulties, how do we all respond? I write this blog—and read a lot of labels.

MSG’s Effect on Neurological Function

Friday, May 22nd, 2009

Jack L. Samuels, President, Truth in Labeling Campaign presented a paper to The Weston A Price Annual Convention  in November 2008, that begins:
In providing you with information on MSG’s effect on neurological function, I will provide you with some of the history regarding MSG, some of what is now known regarding its toxic potential, particularly as it affects behavior and neurological function.  I will also provide you with some of the questionable practices of the glutamate industry in their efforts to demonstrate the safety of their product, and the efforts currently underway to replace some or all MSG with a product that may be equally dangerous.
