This link is for all those caucasians out there who think Asians are somehow immune from the detrimental effects of MSG. This may just be the tip of the iceberg. They are experiencing an incredible increase in Type II Diabetes, which we believe is linked to MSG intake.

Thanks, Carol. I have a friend who visited China and Japan. She said that the highly spiced fancy dishes that we associate with Chinese dishes here are not the main fare there. In most of the villages where she ate, they didn't usually douse their foods with MSG or soy sauce. They ate lots of stir fried and steamed vegetables and meat and fish. Once in awhile they would steep seaweed (kombu: high in natural glutamate) and use some of the broth to season a dish. She is MSG sensitive and never got ill until she ate the "tourist" or fancy meals in the big cities. I'm sure that if you take a healthy villager from China or Japan and feed them the glutamate laden diet of the western world plus the amount of glutamate from their soy and bean sauce enhanced dishes, you will have fatter and sicker people.
