I am quite certain that by now everyone has heard of MSG (monosodium glutamate), but do you actually know the details of this poisonous food additive? Did you know that this food additive is addicting? It confuses your brain from the cellular level and makes it think that you’re consuming something nutritious (like something high in protein) and makes you eat more. It disables the parts of your brain that make you realize that you’re full, that are to stop you from eating more, but instead causes you to eat more.
MSGTruth.org has a chronological map of what happens when you eat MSG, and it is as follows: You eat the MSG-containing food, the cells in the arcunate nucleus of the hypothalamus that produce dopamine and regulate appetite are promptly destroyed, then the hypothalamus becomes leptin-resistant. Leptin is a chemical secreted by the brain that regulates, amongst other things, your appetite. The glutamate, which is linked to Alzheimer and autism, activates the AMPK, which is the ‘master metabolic regulator’, slowing down all metabolism and desire for physical activity. Next your fat cells release leptin to stop the AMPK, but these signals are ignored by the hypothalamus, increasing your appetite and lowering, more, your physical activity; increasing your caloric intake while decreasing your natural metabolic caloric expenditure (making you fat even if you exercise). Even though MSG is an amino acid, contrary to nearly all other amino acids, it makes your pancreas increase insulin production, which is the #1 cause of type 2 diabetes. When the insulin drops our blood sugar we become even more hungry. Even if you exercise this formula while cause you to become fat, develop diabetes, and become addicted to foods containing MSG, which there are many.
Side-effects of MSG:
- Fibromyalgia-type pain
- Heart disease
- Multiple Sclerosis
Unfortunately the FDA has allowed for loopholes in the ingredients listing of food products containing MSG. This is how the FDA reacts when some of their biggest lobbyists are under attack by the general public. They have allowed food manufacturers to list their MSG-containing products as Hydrolyzed [vegetable] proteins, autolyzed yeast, hydrolyzed gelatin (yes, this is in VACCINES!), any yeast extract, Doritos® and so much more. These foods should be avoided at all costs.
There is so much more to know about this debilitating food additive, please do the research and find out for yourself, if not for the sake of yourself, but the sake of your family.
