And now for the info you've known all along and the "experts" are just waking up to:
Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD) is officially linked to problems with glutamate transmission. The study that proved it - not a double blind "correlation is causation" media circus study on humans who eat everything in sight - but another clear animal study with mice. http://www.medpagetoday.com/Psychiatry/GeneralPsychiatry/tb/6477
And so - for me another good explanation for behaviors that made my sisters tease me relentlessly as a child. Since I have avoided MSG, those behaviors are much much less.
And so - another crack in the "myth".

Carol, Interesting article, in part: "......Since this is the first study to directly link OCD-like behaviors to abnormalities in the glutamate system in a specific brain circuit, it may lead to new targets for drug development," Dr. Feng said."
Good news, we've all been waiting for a new drug to cure our glutamate reactions.

About a drug to cure glutamate reactions:
The MSG industry and the medical industry have a good thing going between them. Neither of them gives a rat's @$$ about your health.
Stay off MSG and put both of them out of business.

I think I need to reread my posts a few more times before submitting them - I'm a little spacey lately from a new medication I'm on.
