    Should we ban MSG from all sorts of foods, snacks or frozen foods?

    Did you know that the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) allows for Monosodium Glutamate (MSG) to be used in almost every processed food that we consume and give to our children, even though they are aware that this chemical is poisonous to the individual's health?

    Too much of anything is dangerous. MSG isn't any more dangerous than most other things when eaten in moderation.  True story - you drink too much water and you throw the ph of your blood off balance, and you'll die.

    Everyone knows that you can drink too much alcohol and die from it - and there aren't too many folks wanting to ban alcohol these days. Thank God for that too.

    Monosodium glutamate is used to make moderate food taste like good food, it is a sort of cheap trick, but it isn't especially harmful.

    Now what does bother me about msg is that most of it is created by Monsanto gmo sugar beets. They create the msg from fermenting the transgenetic sugar beets....all Monsanto produce is worrisome due to the glyphosate the seeds were sold to also sell.

    This would be pointless. You cannot ban MSG from potato crisps, as it occurs naturally in potatoes. It occurs naturally in tomatoes. It is found naturally in that many foods, that banning MSG is all but impossible, regardless of how little "added" MSG packaging claims to contain.

      MSG was first identified in 1908  soup stocks made from Laminaria japonica  contained high levels of the substance.

      MSG occurs naturally in many foods, such as tomatoes and cheeses. People around the world have eaten glutamate-rich foods throughout history... Asian community is a glutamate-rich seaweed broth. snipped.

      The use of a deadly chemical in our foods should not be an option, rather an illegal move and should be banned by law. There should be a punishment for those who use MSG or any other chemical harmful to the human health.

    Because MSG causes a very large insulin response, MSG causes diabetic like symptoms of constant hunger and sloth. It is in everything and anything made prepared in the United States. As an excitotoxin, MSG damages neurons. Monosodium Glutamate is hidden under different names because people know that it is not good for your body. -
