"Dr. Olney's studies on various species of test animals disclosed that MSG, when fed in doses similar to those found in human diets, destroys hypothalamic neurons."

"Dr. Olney noted that:

The amount of MSG in a single bowl of commercially available soup is probably enough to cause glutamate levels to rise higher in a human child than levels that predictably cause brain damage in immature animals."

Page 49:

(BEGIN BLAYLOCK)

"[..] even high levels (levels as high as 5 millimoles) did not cause cell death. But if the glucose was removed, doses a fraction of this (as low as 0.02 millimole) could cause cell destruction. When magnesium was also removed from the tissue bath, even small doses of glutamate could kill the cells."

(END BLAYLOCK)

The lesson to be learned here is that sensitiveness to glutamate might be related to how much glucose is in the brain and how much magnesium is in the brain.

I used to take magnesium tablets (recommended by Blayock) but I get so much magnesium from the ground flaxseed and spinach and other stuff I eat that I figure I don't need it and there is such as thing as too much magnesium.

Fruit works better than cereals for me to get glucose in the brain. Some people are afraid of sugar. That bovine scatology. I can handle lots of sugar (as fruit) if I eat my veggies (or drink them).

Jerry,

You mention "there is such a thing as too much magnesium." Can you provide a source for that information?

I suspect that my home well water has a high concentration of magnesium. All the websites that I can find on magnesium in well water only talk about its presence indicates very hard water and that filtration and/or one's water softner should reduce the concentration. I do have a water softner which I have to run an extra backwash at the start of its cleaning cycle to rid the tank of magnesium that has settled there and would otherwise cause our water to have a grey appearance and oily taste. I also filter the water for drinking purposes.

I've had the water tested and it was determined safe, but I don't think the test specifically identified magnesium.

So, the bottom line question remains if there is a danger of having too much magnesium or would the body rid itself of any extra?

About magnesium excess:

From natural sources, no chance of excess.
From artificial supplements, maybe.
From water, I dunno.

Symptoms of excess magnesium: drowsiness, weakness, lethargy.

The body normally eliminates excess magnesium just fine. If it doesn't, then maybe a problem with the kidneys (because they are supposed to be doing the eliminating).

I don't know nuthin except what I scrounge up from books and websites. I collected a bunch of information while creating dmak_nutrients.html and I put a whole shitload of information about nutrients on a CD.

Jerry, this is an extensive and excellent article. Thank you for posting it. It is a great one to copy and print out for all the doubters we encounter.

Mike: Have you taken a lot of heat from NutraSweet or any of these other companies? I mean, have you been threatened with lawsuits or anything for going public with this information?

Dr. Blaylock: No, they leave me alone. I know too much. They've never bothered me. When I wrote the book, George Schwartz warned me, "Are you sure you want to write this book? If you do, they're just going to hound you to death." I said, "Yes, I want to write the book." So, I wrote it with one thing in mind: that they would not be able to refute it.

I researched every kind of way you can research and proved the toxicity of glutamate. They know I know that, because I had exchanged this in writing letters to some of their biggest defenders. They all realized that they couldn't answer my arguments. So they leave me alone. They're afraid that if it comes to a big standoff between me and them, they're going to lose.



We want a big standoff.

Thanks for posting that, Jerry! Dr. Blaylock needs to start a class action suit. He has the credentials and the knowledge to set something in motion.

If you haven't read the Blaylock article that Jerry mentions above, do so. He references magnesium.
Here is another site on magnesium that I found very helpful: http://www.coldcure.com/html/dep.html#magdef
Lots of references to MSG.

I download stuff like this and save stuff like this on DVDs. Maybe some day I will have enough videos and audios about health and nutrition to fill a whole DVD.

On Dr. Blaylock's nutrition and behavior video

at 24:15 Dr. Blaylock says taurine can cause severe hypoglycemia. Just seems interesting since many here are taking this to help. I don't remember any discussion about this on here before.

I have never tried taurine, but for those with high blood sugar it may be useful:

Anyone have any direct contact with Dr, Blaylock? I have been trying to contact him to no avail for an interview. Can't get an email reply. I hate to give up, but I'm going to have to.

You can email Dr. Mercola's staff, Carol. Address is at his site.
Doesn't Jack know how to reach him anymore?

I just went to Blaylock's myspace page and read his credentials - Wow, I had no idea. Very impressive....but I can't help but wonder with his background, knowledge, and I assume clout, why aren't more medical or health professionals jumping on the bandwagon and also speaking out.

Some look at Dr. Blaylock as a renegade, saying that he doesn't have the science to prove his "theories". They turn to medical journals for a lot of their information..and some articles claim that MSG is safe...of course, we have seen many of these same journals come under scrutiny and criticism because of industry influenced ($$$) information. Some belittle his deep religious convictions, perhaps believing they interfere with his grasp of real science. Sad but true in some circles. Of course, there is the strong possibility that the industry lobbyists can be very successful at negative PR campaigns against those involved with any movement that threatens them and their employers' pockets.

* FDA says MSG is proved safe. (FDA serves the MSG industry, not you.)
* Most Medical Deities say it's safe. (All they know is what FDA says.)
* Any MD who says it's not safe is a quack. (He thinks for himself; this is not permitted.)
* The MSG companies say MSG is safe. (This proves it's safe; otherwise they would do a big campaign "our product is poison; don't buy it". That's how business is done, right?)
* It's generally accepted as safe. (Who am I to disagree with the ignorant majority?)
* Experts say it's safe. (Never think for yourself. Authority takes precedence over facts.)
* Anti-MSGers are kooks. (When all else fails, one can always resort to name-calling.)
* Don't read Blaylock's books. (That way you don't need to face the facts.)
* There is no scientifically credible evidence that MSG is bad. (The evidence against MSG is not paid for by the MSG industry.)
* All reputable authorities approve MSG. (If you don't approve MSG, you are not reputable.)
* Junk science. (Any science that interferes with the MSG industry.)
