About the Book
Monosodium Glutamate or MSG, is a popular flavouring substance in many foods. The food industry tells us it’s “natura” and “safe”. But eater, beware: A growing mountain of evidence indicates that MSG may be more toxic than we know.
MSG is now recognised by many in the medical profession as an “excitotoxin”, a type of drug that damages brain cells. It has been reported to be an addictive substance, and has been described as a slow “public poison” in the west. It can even be fatal, in large enough doses.
Yet most doctors, dieticians and the public know very little about the toxic effects of MSG. That’s because the billion-dollar processed food industry and MSG producers spend a fortune on advertising and public relations, which hail MSG as “natural”, to make all of us believe MSG is safe for the majority of the population.
