The Young are Most at Risk from Ingestion of MSG

There are two kinds of damage done by monosodium glutamate and the other ingredients that contain MSG.

The first is fairly obvious. Migraine headache, asthma, skin rash, seizures, and irritability, might be noticed after eating something that contains MSG -- something containing monosodium glutamate, hydrolyzed pea protein, autolyzed yeast, maltodextrin, or natural flavors, for example.

More difficult to make the connection, yet still discernable, ADHD, atrial fibrillation, and tachycardia can be caused by eating processed foods that contain MSG.

But you can’t see the brain damage that is caused by MSG fed to the unborn (fetus) or the newborn by a pregnant or lactating mother -- brain damage that disrupts the endocrine system designed to regulated insulin and glucose secretion, appetite, and thus weight gain/control – the endocrine system designed to protected both males and females from reproductive disorders (infertility).

Monosodium glutamate was invented in 1908 (an extraction method), and reinvented in 1957 (using genetically modified bacteria).

Following reinvention, great quantities of L-glutamate and monosodium glutamate were poured into processed foods.

Since reinvention, there have been reports – and then increasing numbers of reports -- of tachycardia, arrhythmia, asthma, skin rash, depression, migraine headache, seizures, dizziness, mood swings, behavior problems in children, hyperactivity, anxiety, and more following the consumption of something containing manufactured free L-glutamate (MSG).

Since reinvention, there have been increasing numbers of reports of gross obesity and reproductive disorders – which, would have their roots in damage done to the arcuate nucleus of the hypothalamus – that area of the brain that would have regulated food intake and reproductive function had it not been damaged by exposure of the vulnerable fetus and neonate to MSG.

Just as a broken switch in an electrical instrument might be fixable, a broken endocrine system might be repaired. But if the switch is gone, much as vulnerable brain cells are wiped out by MSG fed to the fetus and neonate, the switch can’t be repaired; and neither can those areas of the arcuate nucleus that have been wiped out by processed free glutamic acid (MSG).

The young are most at risk from Ingestion of MSG.
