(This was first written on Oct 1, 2005 on our Proboards site.)

Through a long struggle with migraine headaches and depression caused by MSG, I am finally rid of this harmful and debilitating ingredient. It took a waitress at a truck stop who's child also suffers from MSG allergies to help me. My body is so clean of MSG, I can tell within 15 minutes whether I am getting a reaction from MSG poisoning.

Check out this site for yourself:

http://www.truthinlabeling.org/

There are, of course, many sites pertaining to MSG, both good and bad. Just go to any search engine, e.g. Google, and do your own research.

If you, or anyone you know, suffer from:

Depression
Mood swings
Rage reactions
Migraine headache
Dizziness
Lightheadedness
Loss of balance
Disorientation
Mental confusion
Anxiety
Panic attacks
Hyperactivity
Behavioral problems
..in children
Attention deficit disorders
Lethargy
Sleepiness
Insomnia
Numbness or paralysis Seizures
Sciatica
Slurred speech
Chills and shakes
Shuddering

...then consider the possibility of MSG allergies.

(This list is not complete. Go to http://www.truthinlabeling.org/adversereactions.html for more symptoms.)

I will talk more later about how I am able to avoid MSG at home and in restaurants; and what I do if I get an MSG reaction.

Until then...
warmly,
Sassafras

I split the original topic into 3 topics - Ingredients to Avoid, Links to other sites about MSG, and this one, Causes of MSG.

I hope this clarification helps you find what you are looking for.  I look forward to anyone's questions and concerns about MSG.

You probably know of the potential health dangers associated with MSG. MSG is used in hot dogs as a flavoring and is labeled as an excitotoxin meaning that it stimulates the sensitive neurons to the point where they die.

Lisa,

You are correct!  MSG is dangerous to our health.  Excitotoxins, which are dangerous flavor enhancers, do over stimulate brain cells to the point of death.

Concerning hot dogs....  There are some hot dogs which contain a number of Excitotoxins, and there are hot dogs which contain so few that some MSG sensitive people can eat them.  I do eat some hot dog brands.  And I have reacted to some of these brands too.

I ALWAYS stay away from "hydrolyzed", "autolyzed", "caseinate", and "extracts".

I have been eating Bar-S brand hot dogs lately.  I only eat two or three at a time.  These hot dogs do have "flavorings" which is one of the ingredients listed in every list of Excitotoxins.  I can't say that everyone can eat foods with this ingredient.  I am saying that I can, and that others may be able to do the same.  It is impossible to eliminated every Excitotoxin, but people can avoid the ingredients which are certain to cause a reaction and keep the others at a minimum.

It is important to understand that the food industry isn't trustworthy.  There may come a time when Bar-S brand hot dogs add something to their "Flavorings" making their hot dogs too risky to eat.  Right now, though, I can eat them.


I hope this information helps you, Lisa, and others in understanding the finer nuances of Excitotoxins.

Keep up the good fight!!
