WTF are you talking about
whispering stupid rumors from up your sleeve?
where's your facts
it better be from a real source
and not another stupid damn tabloid
> Subject: MSG (a slow poison)
> The food additive MSG (Mono-Sodium Glutamate) is a slow poison. MSG

> I wondered if there could be an actual chemical causing the massive

> research assistant at the University of Waterloo in Ontario , Canada ,

> In hundreds of studies around the world, scientists were creating

> The MSG triples the amount of insulin the pancreas creates, causing
> rats (and perhaps humans) to become obese. They even have a name for
> the fat rodents they create: 'MSG-Treated Rats.'
> When I heard this, I was shocked. I went into my kitchen and checked
> the cupboards and the refrigerator. MSG was in everything --
> the Campbell Soups, the Hostess Doritos, the Lays flavored potato
> chips, Top Ramen, Betty Crocker Hamburger Helper, Heinz canned gravy,
> Swanson frozen prepared meals, and Kraft salad dressings, especially
> the 'healthy low-fat' ones.
> The items that didn't have MSG marked on the product label had
> something called 'Hydrolyzed Vegetable Protein,' which is just another
> name for Monosodium Glutamate.
> It was shocking to see just how many of the foods we feed our children
> everyday are filled with this stuff. MSG is hidden under many
> different names in order to fool those who read the ingredient list,
> so that they don't catch on. (Other names for MSG are
> 'Accent, 'Aginomoto,' 'Natural Meat Tenderizer,' etc.)
> But it didn't stop there.
> When our family went out to eat, we started asking at the restaurants
> what menu items contained MSG. Many employees, even the
> managers, swore they didn't use MSG.
> But when we ask for the ingredient list, which they grudgingly
> provided, sure enough, MSG and Hydrolyzed Vegetable Protein
> were everywhere.
> Burger King, McDonald's, Wendy's, Taco Bell, every restaurant -- even
> the sit-down eateries like TGIF, Chili's, Applebee's, and Denny's --
> use MSG in abundance. Kentucky Fried Chicken seemed to be the WORST >
> offender: MSG was in every chicken dish, salad dressing. and gravy.
> No wonder I loved to eat that coating on the skin -- their secret

> So why is MSG in so many of the foods we eat? Is it a preservative,
> or a vitamin?
> Not according to my friend John Erb. In his book The Slow Poisoning

> effect it has on the human body.
> Even the propaganda website sponsored by the food manufacturers lobby
> group supporting MSG explains that the reason they add it to food is
> to make people eat more.
> A study of the elderly showed that older people eat more of the foods
> that it is added to. The Glutamate Association lobbying group says
> eating more is a benefit to the elderly, but what does it do to the
> rest of us?
> 'Betcha can't eat [just] one,' takes on a whole new meaning where MSG
> is concerned! And we wonder why the nation is overweight!
> MSG manufacturers themselves admit that it addicts people to their
> products. It makes people choose their product over others, and makes
> people eat more of it than they would if MSG wasn't added.
