Silent Killer Hidden in Your Kitchen Pantry: MSG

by in Health August 11, 2017

In order to be healthy and achieve longevity, you have to eat healthily. You especially have to avoid dangerous chemicals that hide in some of the most common foods.

Food companies take no regard for your health. In the modern day, time food companies are known to sneak toxic ingredients in their products to make it taste better and cheaper to produce. One of the most harmful is MSG (Monosodium Glutamate).

MSG is a widespread and silent killer. It is more dangerous than many different street drugs, alcohol, and nicotine. The scariest part about MSG is that it is in so many different things, and it is extremely likely that it’s in your kitchen cabinet at this very second. Monosodium Glutamate is used as a flavor enhancer, most popularly in Chinese food. There are thousands of foods in our supermarkets that contain this lethal killer, and our families eat it regularly. The majority of the food we eat today is fast food or processed supermarket food. These foods are infamous for containing MSG, an even worse they use alias’ for the name so you can’t detect it.

The flavor enhancer has been found to have incredibly harmful side effects on the body. Today our health is steadily decreasing due to the food and medications we are consuming. MSG is one of the most popularly used flavor enhancements because it is cheap. You can find it in canned soups, crackers, meats, and salad dressings. You can even find MSg in baby food, infant formula, and school lunches.

Monosodium Glutamate is used to enhance the flavors of foods, but not in the same way as typical seasoning like salt. No, MSG is a whole different rodeo. MSG literally enhances the flavors, which masks the true characteristics of the food, making them taste better, look better, and appear fresher. It is all just a business scheme and were paying the ultimate price; our health. I guess you could say processed foods literally cost you an arm and a leg!

Ajinomoto is the world’s largest producer of MSG. They are interestingly also a drug manufacturer… That’s a bit weird, right? MSG didn’t become widespread in the United States until after World War II. It was discovered by American soldiers who realized Japanese rations tasted better than the US. Side effects of the chemical are hefty too. Dr. Russell Blaylock is a board certified neurosurgeon and author of ‘Excitotoxins: The Taste That Kills.’ He explains how MSG could cause great harm to your brain in a range of degrees. It also said that it triggers or worsens learning disabilities, Alzheimer’s Disease, Parkinson’s, and Lou Gehrig’s Disease.

Dr. Blaylock points out that numerous glutamate receptors have been found both within your heart’s electrical conduction system and the heart muscle itself. This could explain the sudden deaths seen among young athletes and should serve as a huge warning to anyone who consumes MSG.

Dr. Blaylock states:

“When magnesium stores are low, as we see in athletes, the glutamate receptors are so sensitive that even low levels of these excitotoxins can result in cardiac arrhythmias and death.”

Food companies will use different names to hide this chemical in your food. There are over 40 labeled ingredients that contain glutamic acid, but the names do not give it a way.
