MSG - SLOWLY POISONING THE WORLD!
I wondered if there could be an actual chemical causing the massive Obesity
epidemic, so did a friend of mine, John Erb. He was a research Assistant at the
University of Waterloo, and spent years working for the Government. He made an
amazing discovery while going through scientific journals for a book he was
writing called The Slow Poisoning of America. In hundreds of studies around the
world, scientists were creating obese mice and rats to use in diet or diabetes
test studies. No strain of rat or mice is Naturally obese, so the scientists
have to create them. They make these Morbidly obese creatures by injecting them
with chemical when they are first Born. The MSG triples the amount of insulin
the pancreas creates, causing
Rats (and humans?) to become obese. They even have a title for the race of fat
rodents they create:
"MSG-Treated Rats" MSG?
I was shocked too. I went to my kitchen, checking the cupboards and the Fridge.
MSG was in everything! The Campbell's soups, the Hostess Doritos, the Lays
flavoured potato chips, Top Ramen, Betty Crocker Hamburger Helper, Heinz canned
gravy, Swanson frozen prepared meals, Kraft salad dressings, especially the
'healthy low fat' ones. The items that didn't have 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. They hide MSG under many
different names in order to fool those who catch on.
But it didn't stop there. When our family went out to eat, we started asking at
the restaurants what menu items had MSG. Many employees, even
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, McDonalds, Wendy's, Taco Bell, every restaurant,
even the sit down ones like TGIF, Chilis', Applebees 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 spice was MSG!
So why is MSG in so may of the foods we eat? Is it a preservative or a Vitamin?
Not according to my friend John. He said that MSG is added to food for the
addictive effect it has on the human body.
Even the propaganda website sponsored by the food manufacturers lobby Group
explains that the reason they add it to food is to make people eat more. A study
of elderly people showed that people eat more of the foods that it is added to.
The Glutamate Association lobby group says eating more benefits 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
And we wonder why the nation is overweight? The 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
MSG is scientifically proven to cause obesity, it is an addictive substance.
Since its introduction into the American food supply fifty years ago, MSG has
been added in larger and larger doses to the pre-packaged meals, soups, snacks
and fast foods we are tempted to eat every day.
The FDA has set no limits on how much of it can be added to food. They claim
it's safe to eat in any amount. Many studies mentioned in John Erb's book link
MSG to Diabetes, Migraines and headaches, Autism, ADHD and even Alzheimer's.
But what can we do to stop the food manufactures from dumping fattening and
addictive MSG into our food supply and causing the obesity epidemic we now see?
Several months ago, John Erb took his book and his concerns to one of the
highest government health officials in Canada. While sitting in the Government
office, the official told him "Sure I know how bad MSG is, I would not touch the
stuff!" But this top level government official refused to tell the public what
The big media doesn't want to tell the public either, fearing legal issues with
their advertisers. It seems that the fallout on the fast food industry ay hurt
their profit margin.
So what do we do?
The food producers and restaurants have been addicting us to their products or
years, and now we are paying the price for it.
Our children should not be cursed with obesity caused by an addictive food
additive. But what can I do about it? I'm just one voice, what can I do to stop
the poisoning of our children ?
The best way you can help save yourself and your children from this drug-induced
epidemic is to BLOW THE WHISTLE ON MSG.
If you are one of the few who can still believe that MSG is good for us, and you
don't believe what John Erb has to say, see for yourself. Go to the National
Library of Medicine at http://www.pubmed.com
Type in the words "MSG Obese", and read a few of the 115 medical studies that
appear. (I went to the site!)
Let's save our children!
the whistle on MSG is our responsibility, get the word out today.
