But now it looks as if they've turned our own taste buds against us. The Slow Poisoning of America website is a site everyone should look at. When I saw their claims that MSG is added to food for the addictive effect it has on the human body, I was surprised. But then I checked out the website for the Glutamate Association.
Yes, they actually say it's addictive -- with a straight face-- and they think that's good. Ah, words! Ah, greed!
The food industry learned from the tobacco industry that addicted customers keep coming back for more. So why do you go to Applebees, MacDonalds, KFC? Why that craving? Well, go to the National Library of Medicine, at www.pubmed.com Type in the words "MSG Obese" or "MSG headache" or just plain old "MSG" and read on.
Now more than ever, we moms need to realize that our family's very lives depend on what we put in their mouths.

Hidden Sources Of MSG
As discussed previously, the glutamate (MSG) manufacturers and the processed food industries are always on a quest to disguise the MSG added to food. Below is a partial list of the most common names for disguised MSG. Remember also that the powerful excitotoxins, aspartate and L-cystine, are frequently added to foods and according to FDA rules require NO LABELING AT ALL.
* Food Additives that ALWAYS contain MSG *

Plant Protein Extract
Textured Protein (Including TVP)
Hydrolyzed Oat Flour
* Food Additives That FREQUENTLY Contain MSG *
Natural Beef Or Chicken Flavoring
* Food Additives That MAY Contain MSG Or Excitotoxins *
Soy Protein Concentrate
