That's called "cooperation". The glutamate industry provides the glutamate. The medical industry provides the glutamate blocker.

Exactly. Monsanto sold the aspartame that created my pituitary tumor, and Pharmacia - the parent company of Monsanto, sold me - for $30 A TABLET the drug to treat my tumor, which I will probably have to take for the rest of my life. How can they not understand the science involved with disrupting my entire endocrine system? How can they sleep at night?

I continue to hear from young women who tell me that they couldn't get pregnant for years (or had serveral miscarrriages) until they avoided MSG. My daughters and one daughter-in-law have miscarried and it takes my other daughter-in-law a year to conceive (she is trying harder not to eat MSG now). My children have many married friends who are infertile and some are adopting now. The numbers are not normal...forced birth control???? Yes, MSG does a number on the endocrine system, which includes reproduction.

The link between MSG and infertility was discovered long ago:

"MSG greatly reduces pregnancy success
MSG (Monosodium Glutamate), a common flavor enhancer added in foods, was found to cause infertility problems in test animals. Male rats fed MSG before mating had less than a 50% success rate (5 of 13 animals), whereas male rats not fed MSG had over a 92% success rate (12 of 13 animals). Also the offspring of the MSG treated males showed shorter body length, reduced testes weights and evidence of overweight at 25 days. MSG is found in ACCENT, flavored potato chips, Doritos, Cheetos, meat seasonings and many packaged soups."

Great researching again, Roy. I'm sure printing that one up. You know, there are hundreds of such tests on lab animals and still we prefer to believe that humans won't react like they do.
We can be so stupid!!!!! We actually believe only what we want to believe...that all our doctors have all the answers and that the FDA protects our food supply and health...sorry, I'm frustrated today. Have received so many email from suffering people recently. It's so hard to read some of their stories.

When I was in Junior high many years ago...I'm 57..We had to do a report on a subject of our choice. I had this glowing idea of the FDA...that it was this watchdog for our health. Then I began my research and was shocked. What an eye opener that was...got an A, though. Interestingly, I chose my final H.S. term paper to research PKU, since the test had just been developed, and my mother worked in the same hospital with the doctor who developed it. She got him to give me an interview. Dr. Blaylock has stated that it is a shame that a test like the one for PKU on babies was not developed for glutamate intolerance, too. Babies with PKU can't tolerate or metabolize a different amino acid. Those papers did help to give me a broader understanding of the glutamate problem years later, and what we are up against with the FDA. It's really up to all of us who know about MSG to keep the ball rolling and share our knowledge with as many people as we can. It's a grass roots effort that is snowballing right now, so let's keep it up. Mike and I sure can't do it alone. Thanks for all that you do. It's hard enough to just maintain our own health, but this is important work that we are doing together and as individuals. Take time to play, but please don't forget what we can do to help fellow sufferers when an opportunity arises. Write those books, magazine and newspaper articles, write to your congressmen, and get involved locally. PLEASE do what you can! People's lives ARE at stake. Thanks for your time and talents. I've talked with so many people this week who are so grateful for this site and board. Many don't post, but there are here daily.

Here's the article. http://www.forbes.com/lifestyle/health/feeds/hscout/2006/03/01/hscout531280.html
Gee, now if TWO glutamate receptor blockers (this new one and Memantine) both work against Alzheimer's WHY are we seeing MSG marketers trying to get MSG served to our grandparents in nursing homes?

It's maddening, isn't it? It comes down to the bottom line. What's upsetting me is knowing the potential number of Alzheimer patients we have in the making with today's MSG devouring kids.

Recieved this email today... brightend my day...though it is addressed to me, I want those of you who fight this battle with Mike and and I to know that you are a part of this man's victory, too.

Debbie, thank you for telling your story. I had the same experience in 2001 when I was having symptom's and the doctors said everything was ok. Sausage Mcmuffins were a mainstay in my morning and by noon I could not even function. I felt stupid, scared and puzzled at the idea I was epileptic. They took my drivers license and said I could no longer work as an electrician. I had a gracious boss who picked me up everyday for work and after 6 months on Dilantin, I was able to drive but still had the problems of dizziness, siezure's and always tired. With old habits hard to break I ate the same foods and lived the same life hoping the doctors were correct, and I was treated and good for now. Until one day I could not even get out of my truck when I got to the jobsite and started having a panic attack. It was then I hit rock bottom. I asked GOD if he would give me the answer because I would not want to live like I had demensia and was just losing my mind and my health. I told him I could not handle this anymore without him. I sat in my truck as if he would give me the answer and within minutes I kept saying MSG, MSG, what is MSG? I was able to call my wife and had her look on the internet to find out what MSG is. The spirit led her to this website and I have never had medications or any symptoms (since). It has been a long time since I visited your site and now am a firm believer that MSG is a major issue. Our family is so blessed by your willingness to publish all this information. If God thought it (MSG) was ok, He wouldn't have given us the answers to our heart felt prayers. Thank you so much for the energy you put into serving others and God. May you be blessed all of your days. Feel free to post this if you so desire.
