Subject: Interesting facts on MSG
I just read this and thought I might post it here as there always seems to be questions regarding MSG.
I have nothing to do with the article or whom it came from, I`m just passing it along.
WHAT ARE THE ADVERSE REACTIONS OF MSG?
Ingestion of processed free glutamic acid (MSG) is known to produce a variety of adverse reactions in some people. These reactions, although seemingly dissimilar, are no more diverse than reactions found as side effects of certain neurological drugs. We do not know why some people experience reactions and others do not. We do not know whether MSG "causes" the condition underlying the reaction, or whether the underlying condition is simply aggravated by the ingestion of MSG. We only know that the reactions listed below are sometimes caused or exacerbated by MSG.
All forms of MSG (free glutamic acid that occurs in food as a consequence of manufacture) cause these reactions in MSG-sensitive people. That includes MSG found in a plant "growth enhancer" called AuxiGro, and MSG found in a variety of other fertilizers and fungicides that have been approved for spraying on growing crops, including crops identified as "organic."
Arrhythmia, Atrial fibrillation, Tachycardia (Rapid heartbeat), Palpitations, Slow heartbeat, Angina, Extreme rise or drop in blood pressure, Circulatory Swelling
Diarrhea, Nausea/vomiting, Stomach cramps, Irritable bowel, Swelling of hemorrhoids and/or anus area, Rectal bleeding, Bloating
Flu-like achiness, Joint pain, Stiffness
Depression, Mood swings, Rage reactions, Migraine headache, Dizziness, Light-headedness, Loss of balance, Disorientation, Mental confusion, Anxiety, Panic attacks, Hyperactivity, Behavioral problems in children, Attention deficit disorders, Lethargy, Sleepiness, Insomnia, Numbness or paralysis Seizures, Sciatica, Slurred speech, Chills and shakes, Shuddering
Blurred vision, Difficulty focusing, Pressure around eyes
Asthma, Shortness of breath, Chest pain, Tightness in the chest, Runny nose, Sneezing
Swelling of the prostate, Swelling of the vagina, Vaginal spotting, Frequent urination
Obesity, reproductive disorders, and learning impairment, that sometimes become obvious only after puberty, may have their origins in neuroendocrine dysfunction caused by exposure of infants and small children to MSG.
The first evidence linking retinal degeneration to treatment with MSG was found by researchers testing the notion that glutamic acid might cure retinal degeneration. By 1969, evidence that treatment with MSG caused retinal degeneration had been confirmed many times.
