Eating out as well as eating boxed or canned foods is commonplace today. Over the last thirty or forty years fast food restaurants have sprung up on every corner. And almost everyone eats at one of these quickie restaurants at least once or twice a week. But, at what cost to the body and the mind!

There are many ingredients in today's food that are unnatural, keep food fresh, make foods tasty and also cause disease. One such ingredient is MSG...Monosodium Glutamate.

Whether you consider yourself health-conscious or not, it would benefit you and your family to have information on this additive. Making healthy choices and taking appropriate action can save you or a loved one, a slow poisoning via our food supply.

Tests run on mice and rats that have been injected with MSG show that this ingredient tripled the amount of insulin in the pancreas, causing the rats to become obese. Could ingesting this ingredient act the same on humans? MSG has not only been linked to obesity but also to Diabetes, Migraines, Autism, ADHD, Depression, and Alzheimer's.

What's that old milk commercial does a body good. In this case...not so much!

Go to your cupboard and check to see just how many of your favorite foods have MSG on the label. If not MSG then look for Hydrolyzed Vegetable Protein, which is just another name for Monosodium Glutamate. You'll be shocked...amazed...perplexed even! How could we have this ingredient in our food supply!

Is MSG a preservative? NO! We can find no reference that this ingredient has any value, other than to make food appealing and ADDICTING to the consumer. It simply makes you eat more...and more...and more! How clever! We do have an obesity epidemic in this country and generally, we wonder why. Could it at least be partially attributed to this food additive? It's definitely something to consider!

The amount of MSG in our food has increased over the 50 years since it's introduction into the food supply. The FDA has set no limits to how much of it can be added to food. Is it harmful to humans? Well...think about it. What foreign substance isn't! How much can our bodies handle anyway? Not just MSG...but the multitude of other substances, like nitrates, aspartame, hydrogenated fats and the list goes on.

But if you are still unsure, go to and search MSG. That way you can come to your own conclusions.

You know how the system works today...Money Talks! You won't hear this type of information on TV for obvious reasons. But we must educate ourselves and empower our family and friends.

Spread the word on MSG!
