Interesting Article... More than just MSG
« on: October 18, 2008, 07:22:16 AM »
I received a newsletter from www.ewg.org yesterday about why bottled water isn't good for us anymore and thought I would do an MSG search.  I came up with three articles.  The one I'm citing here is called From Processed Foods to Natural Wholesomeness which can be found at http://www.ewg.org/node/22655

Quote from: Environmental Working Group
"Artificial and natural flavors" is a catch-all phrase for a concoction of hundreds of chemicals used to make you think you're tasting a delicious apple or a juicy grape. Rather than take you through a boring recitation of all the junk chemicals and their nasty side affects that are in our food supply, we'll amuse you with a short running list much in the same way the food industry crams it all together in fine print on their packaging…Brominated Vegetable Oil (BVO), Butylated Hydoroxyanisole (BHA), Butylated Hydroxytoluene (BHT), Cochineal Extract, Sodium Casseinate, High-Fructose Corn Syrup, Dextrose, Heptyl Paraben, Hyrdrogenated Starch, Hydrogenated Vegetable Oil and Partially Hydrogenated Vegetable Oil, Lactitol, Maltitol, Mannitol, the infamous Monosodium Glutamate (MSG), Polysorbate 60, Potassium Bromate, the bad boys of the preservative class -- Sodium Nitrate and Nitrite, Sulfites... ah, well, we're sure you have the idea by now. An excellent and more extensive read on the topic is The Hundred Year Lie by Randall Fitzgerald.


Just more information for the MSG sufferer.

When you are finished reading the article, do your own search for MSG at www.ewg.com and read the other two articles.  I'll tell you,  8O  I am still shocked over what I find about MSG and other problems within our food system.

The chief idols in the desecrated temple of mankind are none other than the triple gods of Nationalism, Racialism and Communism, at whose altars governments and peoples, whether democratic or totalitarian, at peace or at war, of the East or of the West, Christian or Islamic, are, in various forms and in different degrees, now worshiping. ~~Shoghi Effendi, The Promised Day is Come
