Have you guys heard the latest? WebMD just had an article about Americans not getting enough sleep and that it must be causing troubles from anxiety and road rage to obesity. CNN actually repeated the "results". If they were really looking at the real causes, they would see that MSG is the common cause of all three problems. It's not very scientific to state a cause simply due to guilt by association - that sleepless people tend toward obesity and crankiness. Consider this: MSG can cause a racing heart, and anxiety by triggering the hypothalamus to be in a fight or flight mode (hence the rage) and also affects obesity by triggering the pancreas to lower the blood sugar level, thus crashing our moods further by making us cranky as well as fat. How many "studies" is it gonna take before they start to actually interpret scientific data scientifically? (Jeez, I think I ate some MSG today, I'm cranky, it's past my bedtime, and I think I'm gonna need a midnite snack....)

Major frustration....that scientists and doctors accept so readily that MSG is okay. It's like the 3 others working on Michael J. Fox's childhood sitcom in Canada. They are looking for a common cause and all they can think of is a virus. What about environmental causes, like the same food they may have all eaten all day for several years?

Carol, I know this is an old thread, but I share your frustration with how the media and a lot of the people who pay attention to them conflate "coincidence" and "causation." If three things occur together, why does one of them have to be causing the other two? What if there is some OTHER link? drives me nuts, just had to say something.
Also, if you read this, I just want to add that I really appreciate all your posting and all your work on this issue. You and Deb and all the other posters on this board have contributed to my life immensely.
