MSG - Wei Jing in Chinese - used to be made from vegetables but now it is made from bacteria - and it is suspected that the baceria are genetically altered.|
Here is what the "Encyclopedia of Common Natural Ingredients Used in Food, Drugs, and Cosmetics" has to say:
"Currently, most of the world production of [monosodium glutamate] is by bacterial fermentation. In this method bacteria (especially strains of Micrococcus glutamicus) are grown aerobically in a liquid nutrient medium containing a carbon source (e.g., dextrose or citrate), a nitrogen source such as ammonium ions or urea, and mineral ions and growth factors. The bacteria selected for this process have the ability to excrete glutamic acid they synthesize outside of their cell membrane into the medium and accumulate there. The glutamic acid is separated from the fermentation broth by filtration, concentration, acidification, and crystallization, followed by conversion to its monosodium salt [monosodium glutamate]." (Leung, A. and Foster, S. Encyclopedia of Common Natural Ingredients Used in Food, Drugs , and Cosmetics. New York: Wiley, 1996. pp 373-375.)
So essentially, MSG is genetically-altered bacteria sh_t.
Your American CDC in Atlanta, in their "Registry of Toxic Effects of Chemical Substances" state:
"Monosodium glutamate is described as a Mutagen and Reproductive Effector."
In other words, it is bacteria sh_t that can cause cells to mutate and also effects reproduction.
The Food Processing Industry tries to associate MSG - artificial - or "free" glutamic acid - with the naturally occurring form found in nature; and with the help of the FDA has been pretty successful in the con.
Exposure to free glutamic acid found in processed food is linked to adverse reactions including hives, asthma, seizures, and migraine headache; is suspected as a possible cause of brain damage, learning disorders, or endocrine disturbances; and is suspected as being relevant in diverse diseases of the central nervous system such as addiction, stroke, epilepsy, schizophrenia, anxiety, depression, and degenerative disorders such as ALS, Parkinson's disease, and Alzheimer's disease.
So, again in other words, it is bacteria sh_t that can cause cells to mutate, it effects reproduction, is either linked to or suspected in enough serious health problems that it should have been banned worldwide many years ago - but hey, the processed food industry and their protectorate - the FDA (and other so-called "health authorities) - make money off of it and use it to get people to eat things that they otherwise couldn't stand the taste of; so its OK!
By the way - the world's largest producer? - Ajinomoto Company Inc. - and it was actually first created artificially by Japanese chemist Ikeda Kikunae in 1908.
Forget smoking - it's no where near as dangerous as msg.
BAN msg TODAY! DON'T BUY ANYTHING WITH msg INCLUDED AS AN INGREDIENT. Very scary stuff!
The danger of msg is just one of the reasons that one of HK's largest artificial food producers just had their wrists slapped by the HK government. They were telling people their products did not have msg and it turned out upon testing by the HK government that the concentrations of msg in their products was higher than average!
