If you suspect you have any ailments that are related to degradation of your nervous system, stay away from MSG and ASPARTAME -- and the hundreds of related substances. Almost all processed foods have msg, aspartame, and/or other "hidden" variations of these chemicals. You can easily find the names of these hidden substances on the web. And you can find the brand names that are the worst offenders. Hint: canned soup is one of the top offenders.
Dr Blaylock is the No 1 expert on this field. Search him on the web. Read his book(s).
Blaylock points the finger straight at excitotoxins, a family of food-born amino acids that have the capability to excite brain neurons to death. Excitotoxins are the common underlying culprit in many neurological disorders. They build up in the brain and have been conclusively shown to either precipitate or aggravate many neurological problems. Food additives such as aspartame, MSG and hydrolized vegetable protein are the primary sources of excitotoxins in our diet.
Blaylock claims "the FDA has failed in its stated purpose of protecting the public from harmful substances being added to the food supply...People must be warned." In a nutshell, that's what this book is about. Consider it a knowledgeable warning from a highly accredited, passionate source.
We can no longer count on our government to protect us from questionable substances produced by big chemical or food companies. The word "questionable" means that the substances do not make us sick or kill us right away; rather, they have to accumulate over time to trigger or reveal disease. The smartest personal survival/protection strategy is to get educated. This book is part of your essential education. Plough through it or at least skim through it to the parts that interest you.
I especially recommend Excitotoxins to anyone with a neurological disorder and/or their families, to physicians who treat neurological disorders, to pregnant women, and to all humans who are seriously interested in the link between food additives, health and longevity.
