Unhhealthy Food Supplements You Should Avoid, Part 2

This is Part 2 of unhealthy ingredients that are found in packaged/process foods as well as in restaurants.

MSG (Monosodium Glutamate) is an excitotoxin, according to Dr. Blaylock. It is used in countless foods on the supermarket shelves, has wide-spread use in restaurants, schools, and hospital cafeterias, and it has even found in baby foods and vaccinations. MSG is highly adaptive and might even be in fast foods.

Dr. Blaylock states that MSG can cause: cardiac problems, circulatory disorders, gastrointestinal problems, muscular disorders, neurological problems, visual disorders, respiratory problems, urological problems, and skin disorders.

MSG use is so pervasive, that it is finding its way onto fresh produce and nuts via products called AuxiGro, which is produced by Emeral Bio-Agriculture. AuxiGro is classified as a disinfectant, fertilizer, and a fungicide. The FDA requires food processors to list the ingredient monosodium glutamate on labels but does not require the listing of free glutamic acids found in MGS. There are over 40 MSG by-products that contain free glutamic acids but these acids are not so obvious on food labels.

These are your MSG "aliases:" Natural flavors, autolyzed yeast, glutamate, calcium caseinate, glutamic acid, gelatin, hyrolyzed protein, textured, protein, yeast nutrient, yeast extract, sodium caseinate, yeast food.

These ingredients often contain or create MSG during the manufacturing process and needs to be avoided when possible: flavors, flavorings, natural chicken flavoring, anything enzyme modified, soy sauce broth, carageenan, corn starch, soy protein isolate, malt extract, MaltoDextrin.

MSG is found in shampoos, hair conditioners, cosmetics, candy, chewing gum, binders and fillers for medications, both prescriptive and non, feeding materials and it can be found in some intravenous fluids. Does the new health care bill subsidize MSG related illnesses? I don't know, but we hope you get the message.

It is possible to wash away or detoxify these harmful ingredients with colon hydrotherapy and proper eating habits. The best thing to do, of course, is not use MSG (knowingly) at all.
