Did anyone else catch the "Dr. Tim on Call" segment on Good Morning America today? Wow! The stats were horrendous. They stated that autism was up 4 times over the last 20 years. In CA,in the last decade, autism jumped 273%. 10 years ago, 1 in 10,000 kids had it, and now it is found in 1 out of every 500 kids! Dr. Tim stated that in the past, vaccines were suspected as a leading culprit, but recent tests reject that: there was no difference in the percentage of autism in children not vaccinated. When is the public going to take notice of these staggering statistics?...add that to the other epidemics like asthma, which the FDA recognizes that MSG MAY effect some people with this affliction, ADD, ADHD, rage, and depression in our young people, and where is the hope for our future generations? There is no way the FDA is not covering up the truth about the effects of excitoxins on children and all of us. They don't want the whiplash this scandal is finally going to give them. Sorry, just venting!

Fortunately, most autism sites now list foods as a major factor in autism. A gluten-free casein free (GFCF) diet is now the buzzword when dealing with autistic children. It isn't hard to figure out though, that a GFCF diet (which I have to eat everyday due to allergies) also happens to be a relatively MSG free diet. Coincidence?

Hi Carol! How's life treating you these days? Hope it's very well.
Yes, I am familiar with the wheat/dairy free diet suggested to most parents of autistic children. But I have had a very interesting e-correspondence with the parent of an autistic child from the U.K. In fact, she is an activist over there and has been helping other parents of autistic children for years with diet. Somehow she found our site and decided to eliminate more of the hidden sources of MSG. She e mailed me to tell me that MSG was the "something else" that she knew she was missing, and that it made a HUGE difference. She got our book. Eventually, after a few months of eliminating MSG, she informed me that her son had been "kicked out" of the special school he was in, and had to be mainstreamed. So, as you said, by eliminating gluten and dairy, a person is cutting out a lot of excitotoxins. I have to wonder if many autistic children are the result of damage prenatally, also...MSG does cross the placental wall, according to all animal tests done, even through the glutes say otherwise. Then children get it from breast milk, formulas and even vaccinations which contain gelatin and other sources of free glutamate. Children are more susceptible to damage since their blood brain barrier is not fully developed. I also notice that there are more reports out about the decrease in fertility among young couples...they are third generation since MSG was introduced, and in lab animals, infertility showed up more progressively with each generation, along with other serious conditions. As someone here once posted, makes one wonder if this is planned "unparenthood". I'm beginning to sound like Mel Gibson in "Conspiracy Theory". Mix in a little "The Fugitive", and we have the
"MSG Conspiracy". :) No laughing matter, though!

Hi again. Forgot the mention that our son's wife is due to have a little girl in early April. We were all together for Thanksgiving so we had family photos taken at that time. Mike is talking about posting a couple of them on the site. Will let you know. If anyone wants us to post any photos of themselves, please e mail them to Thanks.

He actually is suggesting eliminating excitotoxins as the main treatment...along with supplements that may help...or hinder,if they contain glutamate...but it's a doctor and that is wonderful! They are starting to see the light.

I hope we all live to see the MSG scandal exposed. I know that it will be. Doctors and the public are much more aware than they were just a few years ago. I really believe we are close to the bubble bursting. More people that I talk to around the country are getting politically involved. I know of two who are talking with lawyers and some others who are talking with their congressmen. They are angry, but are committed, and are trying to make a difference where they can. The truth will come out.
