Today in Google News health - there are reports about hypertension on the rise in the US.

The article doesn't mention that many hypertensive patients take calcium channel blockers and glutamate is a calcium channel opener. Asian teens are now suffering stroke in record numbers, and American children of hispanic descent, who are more at risk of hypertension now, are also more likely to be eating MSG laden Adobo seasoning AND suffer from obesity and asthma.

Consider: the drugs of choice now for hypertension are calcium channel blockers. That may be why BP is on the rise - MSG in the diet may be interfering with the meds of existing patients, and creating new patients every day.

Also, there is another article on sleep disorders being caused by imbalance of brain chemicals. Surprise, surprise, sleep disorders are linked to dopamine decrease. Again no mention in the article that glutamate decreases dopamine levels. Parkinsons patients, and those with pituitary tumors must take dopamine agonists.

Coincidence?? I think not.

That's very interesting, Carol. A young lawyer we know suffers from a debilitating sleep disorder and can no longer practice. I gave his wife our book and they are researching the MSG connection now. She is having to go back to work full time now, and I know how difficult it will be for them to make the transition from fast to whole foods, but I hope and pray they make the effort. When I mentioned that all we need is for him to take on a food company or the FDA, half kidding, his wife, not kidding at all, ( and I totally understood), said that he could lose his life....it was no joke. He nodded his head. This is serious stuff and it reaches into the pockets of the greatest powers on Earth.$$$ Education is the greatest counter power we have at the moment. Thank you all here for your caring ways and your constant vigilance when Mike and I can't be here. This has been the busiest summer ever...out of our control...you may have noticed that I have not been able to be here as much as before....but hopefully that will not last much longer. Our weekends have been very tied up, and now we are considering selling our home and finding a rambler...we are empty nesters and stairs are not something we need as we age!...and the yard is too big. Anyway, we have been busy looking around here on top of having a ton of company. Some years are busier than others. Please be patient...we are still here and working hard.
