Other Web sites with information for MSG-sensitive people

 

There are a number of web sites that contain valuable information for the consumer who would like to understand MSG-induced neurotoxicity, its role as an endocrine disruptor, and the adverse reactions that it causes.  There are others that contain valuable information about the related neurotoxicity, endocrine disrupting potential, and adverse reactions caused by aspartame (variously called AminoSweet, Equal, and Neotame).

 

The work of Dr. Russell Blaylock is, without question, the layman’s greatest resource for understanding MSG-induced neurotoxicity.  We recommend it to you despite that fact that Dr. Blaylock appears not to understand that there are a subpopulation of consumers who are so acutely sensitive to MSG -- that they will exhibit adverse reactions, including seizures and heart irregularities, following ingestion of the relatively large amounts of MSG found in protein drinks, the relative small amounts of MSG that will be found in gelatin capsules, and the minute amounts of MSG that might be used as binders and fillers in pills used as dietary supplements and/or pharmaceuticals.

 

Dr. Blaylock has no web site, per se, that discusses the excitotoxic amino acids commonly used in food: the manufactured glutamic acid found in MSG and the manufactured aspartic acid found in aspartame (AminoSweet, Equal, and Neotame); but a google search for “Russell Blaylock, MSG” will take you to many of the papers and books that he has written as well as to his newsletter.  We find the interview he did with Mike Adams particularly interesting

The cookbook prepared by Debby Anglesey is similarly a valuable guide for MSG-sensitive people.  It is not, however, appropriate for people who would wish to eliminate all MSG from their diets, because there are, in her recipes, ingredients that contain small amounts of MSG—ingredients that can be used by many MSG-sensitive people without immediate obvious reactions, but ingredients that would cause reactions in the highly sensitive.
