Yes, MSG Makes Us Fat

A new study confirms that MSG makes you fat (me too). Published by the American Journal of Clinicial Nutrition, the study confirms what previous researchers and studies have said. SO, not only does MSG kill off brain cells...it makes us a fat population of people. Who do we have to thank for that? Well, it would be the food industry for certain, who when it was made known MSG adds flavor and it could sell more product, began pumping it into every processed food imagineable.
Since World War II our nation has had a steady increase in obesity...that is no coincidence folks!
Want to know the technical aspect of this revelation? I will try to keep it simple. Per neurosurgeon, Dr. Russel Blaylock, MSG toxins destroy a group of cell receptors in the brain called hypothalmus, which send out the signal when you are feeling full.  MSG totally thwarts the sensitivity of these cells, thus you keep on eating.
Of course there are those who try to discredit the studies. Turns out one doctor/scientist who poo pawed the idea of MSG being toxic to the brain happens to work for the Ajinomoto company, a primary manufacturer of MSG. I wouldn't bet a steak on his word.
In the past I had posted on the effects of MSG as an excitotoxin, attributed to many behavioral dysfunctions such as ADD or ADHD. You can check out my topic cloud to find past postings on the topic of MSG. The sidebar on the right does contain a link under "healthful sites" which will give you a list of the many names for monsodium glutamate.
I am tempted to continue about a report that links ACE inhibitor medication (taken for high blood pressure)  to breast cancer, but I wouldn't want that topic to get lost in this one.

To your health!
