I just watched an excellent two-part British documentary that was a riveting eye-opener. Although there is no mention of MSG per se, I found it really worthwhile in terms of its educational value. The way that the average consumer is being duped...

Check it out on Google Video

Cherylin, The videos were really eye-opening! Do you think it is worse here, in the US? I'd love to see a video of our food chain. It's funny....my daughter brought me some of her home grown tomatoes yesterday and her father appeared to be wrinkling up his nose because they looked ugly. She said the ugly ones taste better than the good looking ones and she didn't care how they looked, just how they tasted. My husband thinks it's all about presentation - I don't know how he got conditioned to feel that way, but he did. And sadly, I guess most of the country feels that way too.

Jerry, thank you for that. It is sickening, and I am sending links to all my friends. The more people who see this the better.

I used to miss salami and pepperoni a lot when I began to avoid MSG. Now I never think about cold cuts, thank goodness...and these pics should help anyone who still misses them.
