Two British reports have linked the increase in mental illness to the rise of junk food.

About time. In the US, the govt is content to let the pharmaceutical companies profit from our suffering. Thankfully the British are trying to prevent mental illness in the first place. They mention how these foods affect the brain. They are so close.....

Wonderful. I think a smaller country than ours will break the news, eventually, with the truth about MSG.

I was updating the MSGTruth website and tried to find that link about MSG in US army MRE's. They quietly took it out of the rations when no one was looking. I think they had a reason - the Gulf war vets were coming down with not only depression but A.L.S. too. They probably don't want to be blamed for that - although it was their fault for requiring MSG in the MRE's in the first place. They must have removed it in only the last year. Now I ask you, if MSG is so darn safe, why did the US military remove it from MRE's after being the ones responsible for putting it American processed foods in the first place? Call me a conspiracy theorist, but I don't think the government wanted anyone to know MSG was in there while the troops were eating MREs and coming down with "Gulf War Syndrome" esecially since the new drugs out to treat A.L.S. are glutamate blockers.

Interesting, Carol When you find the article about that, would you please post a link for us?

Deb, sorry it took me a while to find this again. http://ngin.tripod.com/010702b.htm There was some briefing from the DOD where it was stated they no longer used MSG in rations.

Carol, they have now approved a "pepperoni stick" for army rations and are working on a "pizza pocket with Italian sausage and pepperoni slices". Somehow it doesn't sound MSG-free to me.

Correction - I see these items were planned for use in 2004. Perhaps the MSG removal is a more recent decision. I suspect, however, that they may have only eliminated adding pure MSG, and not removed other forms of it such as hydrolyzed vegetable protein, autolyzed yeast extract, etc.

Thanks for finding that link, Carol. The drug industry, with the blessing of the FDA continues to develop glutamate blockers while at the same time, the FDA allows MSG to be poured into our food.

I sent an email to, I think it was Bernie Sanders, quite a while ago after hearing him on Air America radio talking about the mental health of the troops in Iraq. I mentioned they may want to look at the rations. It was right around that time that my hotmail account mysteriously was shut down. I suspected it may have something to do with that as I had had that email account for years with no problems and MSN would not tell me why my account was shut down. Maybe my email got to someone who could help.
