Found this story interesting - it seemingly doesn't have anything to do with MSG, until you consider that MSG causes insulin release.

"We are beginning to appreciate that obesity, insulin resistance, and high blood insulin levels are connected to Alzheimer's disease, Huntington's disease, and dementias in general," he said. "It might be that, in people who are genetically predisposed to these diseases, too much insulin overactivates Irs2 in the brain and accelerates disease progression. Thus, insulin resistance and higher insulin levels might be the environmental influences that promote these diseases," he said.

This is interesting - In case Carol or Deb doesn't have this in the bibliography, but it's a study that shows that glutamate increases insulin levels.
