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 a 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 flavored 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 MSG had something called Hydrolyzed Vegetable Protein, which 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 the 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. In the book he wrote, an expose of the food additive industry called The Slow Poisoning of America, (www.spofamerica.com ), 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 supporting MSG at http://www.msgfacts.com/facts/msgfact12.html 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 concerned!

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 wasn’t added.

Not only is MSG scientifically proven to cause obesity, it is an addictive substance: NICOTINE for FOOD!

Since its introduction into the American food supply fifty years ago, MSG has been added in larger and larger doses to the prepackaged meals, soups, snacks and fast foods we are tempted to eat everyday.

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.

How can they claim it is safe when there are hundreds of scientific studies with titles like these?

Adrenalectomy abolishes the food-induced hypothalamic serotonin release in both normal and monosodium glutamate-obese rats. Guimaraes RB, Telles MM, Coelho VB, Mori RC, Nascimento CM, Ribeiro Brain Res Bull. 2002 Aug

Hypertens Res. 1998 Mar

Hypothalamic lesion induced by injection of monosodium glutamate in suckling period and subsequent development of obesity. Tanaka K, Shimada M, Nakao K, Kusunoki Exp Neurol. 1978 Oct

Yes, that last study was not a typo, it WAS written in 1978. Both the medical research community and food “manufaturers” have known MSG’s side effects for decades!

Many more 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?

Even as you read this, George W. Bush and his corporate supporters are pushing a Bill through Congress. Called the “Personal Responsibility in Food Consumption Act” also known as the “Cheeseburger Bill”, this sweeping law bans anyone from suing food manufacturers, sellers and distributors. Even if it comes out that they purposely added an addictive chemical to their foods. Read about it for yourself at: http://www.yahoo.com.http://story.news.yahoo.com/news? tmpl=story&u=/ap/20040311/ap_on_go_co/obesity_lawsuits_4

The Bill has already been rushed through the House of Representatives, and is due for the same rubber stamp at Senate level. It is important that Bush and his corporate supporters get it through before the media lets everyone know about MSG, the intentional Nicotine for food.

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 wouldn’t touch the stuff!” But this top level government official refused to tell the public what he knew.

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 may hurt their profit margin.

So what do we do?

The food producers and restaurants have been addicting us to their products for 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, while guys like Bush are insuring financial protection for the industry that is poisoning us.

I for one am doing something about it.

I am sending this email out to everyone I know in an attempt to show you the truth that the corporate owned politicians and media won’t tell you.

The best way you can help save yourself and your children from this drug-induced epidemic, is to forward this email to everyone. With any luck, it will circle the globe before Bush can pass the Bill protecting those who poisoned us.

The food industry learned a lot from the tobacco industry. Imagine if big tobacco had a bill like this in place before someone blew the whistle on Nicotine?

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 www.pubmed.com
http://www.pubmed.com . Type in the words “MSG Obese”, and read a few of the 115 medical studies that appear.

We do not want to be rats in one giant experiment, and we do not approve of food that makes us into a nation of obese, lethargic, addicted sheep, waiting for the slaughter.

With your help we can put an end to this, and stop the Slow Poisoning of America. Let’s save our children

  1. A friend forwarded an email about MSG and its connection to obesity, toxins, and addictiveness associated with the use of MSG.

    I am the author and publisher of Easy ‘n Healthy Cooking, and I make a point of not using MSG in my cooking. I try to use ingredients that have no MSG in it, but there are some sauces that have it. I am using a mushroom seasoning that does not use MSG, but it has an ingredient that I am not familiar with: Sodium 5’-Guanylate. Do you have any information on that ingredient and can you tell me in lay terms what it is. Thank you for your help.

  2. You should do more research.
    The Glutamate in Monosodium Glutamate, is the same Glutamate naturally present in many foods: Parmesan Cheese having the most, followed by Scallops, Mushrooms, Corn, Beef, Chicken, Tomato, etc.

    MSG destroys the brain?
    “In neuroscience, glutamate is an important neurotransmitter that plays a key role in long-term potentiation and is important for learning and memory”
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Glutamic_acid

    MSG causes obesity?
    That’s the same as saying all the foods mentioned above cause obesity. And, you can blame many more foods, but you see, it is in fact the person who chooses to consume more calories than they need that causes their own obesity. Due to either an eating disorder, or just not caring.

    Sodium is beneficial to the body in small amounts (about a teaspoon full of salt per day)
    Much above that and problems start occur.
    MSG contains less sodium in a teaspoon than salt, so you can have more of it without health problems.
    Some people do get stomach discomforts and headaches from Glutamate, but it has been proven that these same people experience the same symptoms eating the above mentioned foods too.

  3. Wow, are you kidding me? Your support for MSG being bad is a review of literature “with titles like these”? This articls is a joke and you should be ashamed for spreading such mis-information. Go to Pubmed and search for “Monosodium Glutamate Safety” and you’ll find plenty of journal articles studying real humans that support MSGs use as being safe.

  4. Infinite, can you say “straw man” argument? What does that have to do with the topic of MSG? People should do more research on their own and stop listening to these self proclaimed “experts” who obviously know nothing about nutrition or research.

    • It has everything to do with MSG.

      But read this first:

      Dr. Russell Blaylock: Excitotoxins – The Taste That Kills (PDF)
      http://www.infiniteunknown.net/2011/07/19/dr-russell-blaylock-excitotoxins-%e2%80%93-the-taste-that-kills-pdf/

      You read in your MSM propaganda sources that MSG is good for you.

      You’ll find the same sources saying that Aspartame is safe, when it is lethal stuff like MSG (and I am not talking about natural MSG in tomatoes and cheese etc. by the way).

      You are telling others to do more research, when you certainly haven’t done yours.

      Do you know how labs create obese mice out of normal mice?

      “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.

      And did you know that:

      CALGARY – A Calgary researcher is getting ready to publish a groundbreaking study that links a popular food additive to reduced growth in the brain cells of snails — work that could have major implications for children’s health.

      “It has been shown that (in a pregnant woman), MSG will cross through the placenta and can affect the fetus,” said Ah-Seng.

      “Fetuses are still developing, and their brain cells are starting to grow and starting to reach out to each other. If MSG has been inhibiting or stunting the growth, then the cells basically won’t reach out to one another.”

      Not only did the MSG inhibit growth of the snail’s brain cells, it also limited communication between them. The implications for human health aren’t hard to infer.

      “There’s no difference between a snail brain cell and a rat or a human brain cell, only that there are fewer of them and (they’re) larger,” said Naweed Syed, Ah-Seng’s supervisor and a neuroscientist with the Hotchkiss Brain Institute at the University of Calgary’s faculty of medicine.

      If you want to call yourself ‘The Truth’, then you better learn first that everybody has its own truth based on his/her knowledge and second that your truth is certainly not the universal truth, because then you would be able to perform what normal human beings would call miracles (which are the new normal for awakened souls) all of the time and your body would cease to age (which it does because of your ignorance and emotional addiction and lack of living the truth i.e. love).

      And I have another article from Mike Adams especially for you:

      – The Gullible Mind Explained
      http://www.infiniteunknown.net/2011/05/06/the-gullible-mind-explained/

      (NaturalNews) In light of the string of the blatant falsehoods being announced by the U.S. government these days (FDA, DHS, White House, etc.) it’s interesting that so many people still believe whatever they are told by “official” sources. It brings up the question of the functioning of their brains: How could a person swallow official information so gullibly and so completely without even asking commonsense questions about the reliability or factual basis of that information?

      These people, it turns out, are operating from what I called The Gullible Mind. It is a psychological processing malfunction that filters out information based on its source rather than its integrity. People who operate from The Gullible Mind tend to have misplaced trust in governments, institutions, mainstream news networks, doctors, scientists or anyone who wears the garb of apparent authority.

      Whereas a normal, intelligent person would raise commonsense questions about information they receive from all sources, the Gullible Mind wholly accepts virtually any information from sources that occupy the role of apparent authority in society.

      Or are you just one of those trolls that are paid to leave such comments all over the internet?

  5. Wow, a bit paranoid too? Yes the entire “real” scientific communtiy and everyone in the FDA is trying to kill you. All of their scientists are in a huge conspiracy to poison the world. And just because someone disagrees with you doesn’t mean it’s a conspiracy by the MSG lobby to discredit you. You’ve done a good job of that on your own.

    Once again great “Straw Man” argument. Your last post once again proves my assertion that you are absolutely clueless when it comes to research. Jes is right.

    • Thr real problem is that you are not able to READ and to UNDERSTAND this:

  6. I cant seem to understand, how is it that the Chinese people consume so much MSG, yet still they dont seem to have an obesity problem or shrinking brain or headache issues. the problem then is not with MSG but western lifestyle or genetics. Our focus then should be on why one nation is affected adversly while onother is not affected. By the look of it it would appear that MSG is not good for Americans, our research should now focus on why MSG is not good for Americans.

    • @Deeco,

      I’ve studied acupuncture in China and even back then the Chinese were starting to grow fat.

      And back then their diet, which still included lots of veggies, was much better than today.

      Now obesity is exploding in China, like it has in Okinawa. Thanks to the SAD (Standard American Diet).

      Those Japanese living in Okinawa belonged to the healthiest, longest living populations on the planet.

      Now grandparents, still living the old way, have to bury their fat and unhealthy grandchildren, because they started to live our way.

      Read this book if you want to know more:

      Right now you can get it (‘used’) for just $4 ($0,01 + $3,99 for shipping).

      MSG is, by the way, also THE perfect tumor growth fertilizer and that has been scientifically proven.
