Hi folks,

I highly recommend you all to use Yahoo Answers (http://answers.yahoo.com) to raise awareness of the cover-up of hidden MSG. Every day, there's at least someone asking a question that mentions a symptom or two of MSG toxicity who's unaware of its unlabeled form, free glutamic acid, or of its potential health risks. Relevant questions can be found under the categories "Food & Drinks" and the subcategory "Diet & Fitness." Here's an example of one of my recent answers to one of those relevant questions: http://answers.yahoo.com/question/index?qid=20100510022726AAVfnXE

Notice that the Asker voted it as Best Answer. Now that's a sign of progress, even if it's just raising one person's awareness at a time.

Way to go! I'm so glad to hear you are still out there, gurufmsg, sounding the alarm and reaching others. Your suggestion to go to sites like this and share what we know is excellent. Each of us CAN make a difference. So glad you are. Great work!

Is it possible for you to change our website address on the link to your answer. It was incorrect and won't get anyone here! :-) It's www.msgmyth.com.

I couldn't go in to edit it, but I did post the corrected link as a comment. The link is, however, correct inside the NaturalNews article linked. Here's another example of a Best Answer that was chosen: http://answers.yahoo.com/question/index;_ylt=Aqp5FoW2cVpqXINRdUpyZ7Pty6IX;_ylv=3?qid=20100519135258AAFpk9u&show=7#profile-info-7bb7def5791e75742a5d4105132faf16aa

Just to let anyone know that tries the link above, you need to copy and paste the whole link to your browser not just the highligted pink bit. Its great to see this info reaching out on such question and answer sites. Thanks guruofmsg.

I don't always have time to answer Q's on Yahoo Answers each day, so if any of you would like to volunteer to pick a day or two of the week, that would be great and would speed up the process of awareness. If 6 people volunteer, each one could pick 1 day of the week. It only takes about 15 minutes to answer like 10 questions (copying & pasting helps sometimes).

Any volunteers?

I just answered a question at Yahoo in the Other food and drinks category. I will check in perodically and see if there are any more questions I know answers to. Thanks for the suggestion and directions.

If you go to the bottom of the list of questions, you can select "2", "3", "4", etc...to browse more questions in that category (sometimes questions asked a week or two ago are still listed!)

guruofmsg,

I have been answering yahoo questions for a while now. Here is my profile: http://answers.yahoo.com/my/my;_ylt=AsyJmzejsiKlsXXQ8AAhvjoO53NG;_ylv=3 <-------Highlight the entire URL, copy and paste onto your broswer

I find that there are lots of young people wanting help with diet and weight loss. My answer is always the most difficult option but is picked surprisingly often as the best answer. Young people have no idea how to eat a healthy diet so they need someone to guide them. My answers always involve avoiding food additives as much as possible and eating a whole foods diet of meat, vegetables and healthy fats (no trans fats). Most kids that want to lose weight cut their intake drastically and when they do eat, they eat nonfat yogurt and cereal bars. Horrifying.

I have also answered questions in food & drink, allergies, other diseases (a lot of people don't realize all the symptoms of food allergy), diet, etc. All of my answers direct people here to the test diet. I find the easiest way to make believers out of skeptics is to let them experience it themselves.

Deb, check your stats and see if you have some new visitors from Yahoo answers. ;)

I don't think there is any way to look up the profile of a member unless you click on that person's avatar. Here is a link to a question I answered. http://answers.yahoo.com/question/index;_ylt=AqQWIFHd6h0WuCZyVhJffvK_7BR.;_ylv=3?qid=20100603124100AALGo8z <-------highlight and paste into location bar of browser.

I am kc.
