Excitotoxins



This is a long video lecture, about 1 hour long, but please watch in your spare time.

Did you know MSG may come up under different names?

hydrolyzed vegetable protein
vegetable protein
textured protein
protein extract
enzymes (depending on the source)
yeast extract
natural flavoring
spices
carragenum

Problem: the food industry lobbied to be able to disguise certain chemicals from being subject to mandatory labelling.

Also...

Surprisingly to me, it affects cholesterol and triglycerides too!
