Has anyone got any links to full scientific surveys/research about MSG please?
Kind regards.

Check out the "Sharing Scientific Information" section. Many people including myself have posted a lot of incriminating info there.

Understand that the food industry won't let any studies specifically about MSG in food occur that are unbiased. Hard to do a study if you either won't get funding, or your boss tells you the institution could lose a whole lot of money if you do go through with the study.

The following is from a post on this board by Carol H., P.E. citing a list of studies re: MSG caused obesity:

AND there are many more, I'll keep looking, but like Jennifer said check out "Sharing Scientific Information."
