- Hundreds of medical studies and thousands, Nay, millions
of victim accounts, irrevocably establish that monosodium glutamate, Ajinomotos
chemical flavor enhancer, is a deadly, systemic, neurotoxic poison that
eradicates your mind and health.
- In 1994 renowned Neurosurgeon and Professor Russell Blaylock,
M.D., 27 year practitioner of the most delicate and demanding field of
surgery: on the brain and nervous system, the pinnacle of medical expertise,
released his book Excitotoxins, the Taste that Kills, which plainly explains
how MSG certainly destroys you...
- MSG is not the only taste enhancing food additive known
to cause damage to the nervous system. In fact, there is a whole class
of chemicals that can produce very similar damage they all share one important
property. When neurons are exposed to these substances, they become very
excited and fire their impulses very rapidly until they reach a state of
extreme exhaustion. Several hours later these neurons suddenly die, as
if the cells were exited to death. Neuroscientists have dubbed this class
of chemicals excitotoxins. More and more diseases of the nervous system
are being linked to excitotoxin build-up in the brain. For example disorders
such as strokes, brain injury, hypoglycemic brain damage, seizures, migraine
headaches, hypoxic brain damage, and even AIDS dementia have been linked
to excitotoxin damage. [The class of excitotoxins includes murderous
aspartame, NutraSweet, Equal, which Ajinomoto recently renamed AminoSweet
since their sales are in the toilet. Similarly MSG is a venom of 100 aliases:
glutamate, hydrolyzed plant protein, sodium caseinate, etc, etc, etc]
- In his chapter Effect Excitotoxins on the Developing
Brain, Dr. Blaylock tells how MSG ruins children: Excess glutamate can
trigger abnormal nervous system development by interfering with the establishment
of proper nerve connections, that is the wiring of the brain the onset
of these behavioral and learning disorders may not show up immediately
but rather may be delayed for many years following birth because of the
timing of the onset of specialized brain functions. Injury to the speech
areas of the brain, for example, would not be evident in the newborn baby,
but would be evident when the child began to learn to speak ... Likewise,
damage to areas of the brain concerned with complex learning skills would
not be evident until the child started school and was exposed to math and
reading. There is an entire library of scientific documentation on MSG
toxicity for you to investigate on the web. This is bad for the Japanese
MSG maker, Ajinomoto. They have zero interest in you or your familys health.
They just want the money!
- Consider what debased evil minds, wicked, devoid of conscience,
malignant, twisted, perverse and demonic, that intentionally loose dread
poisons on humanity with full knowledge of the agony, suffering, poverty,
ruined lives, foreclosed futures, desolation and death they inevitably
produce. Is there a name for such foul criminal scum? I give you Joseph
Mengele, the Nazi Angle of Death who hideously tortured thousands of screaming
victims just for the damned fun of it. In the name of good Science, of
course. And I give you Susan Schiffman, Ph.D., who published Perception
of Taste and Smell in the Elderly encouraging MSG in foods for seniors,
so theyll eat more. I also give you Univ/ Nebraskas Dr. Steve Taylor.
These profane Angles of Desolation and their ilk can find no better use
for their brains and fancy educations than pushing poisons on their countrymen.
Shame! Equally guilty are their cohorts at Univ/California at Davis, plus
the Department of Agriculture, which will be funded by Ajinomoto for the
two year research, conclusion foreknown: MSG will be blessed.
- When corporations fund regulatory agencies, said agencies
work no more for taxpayers but become company stooges with fat budgets,
bigger bonuses, and all those plane rides! Think of it as the District
Attorney working for the Godfather. Today In America theres always some
venal overpaid money grubbing bureaucratic Judas to cheerfully sell you
out. Jack Samuels who has the MSG web site, www.truthinlabeling.org also
has some comments. If Jack Samuels were to get MSG he could go in anaphylactic
shock. This is how serious the issue is.
- Several weeks ago, the Truth in Labeling Campaign became
aware of the fact that the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) has joined
with Ajinomoto Co., Inc. to conduct a two year study at the University
of California, Davis to determine the benefits of monosodium glutamate
for people who are dieting to lose weight or maintain weight.
- According to the press release from Ajinomoto Co., Inc.,
the worlds largest producer of the food ingredient monosodium glutamate,
the purpose of the study is to establish that by using monosodium glutamate
on prepared foods, food flavor will be enhanced, and the subjects will
be more satisfied with the reduced amounts of food required to lose and/or
maintain weight. All of the subjects will be women. (See ( www.prnewswire.com/news-releases/usda-ars-and-ajinomoto-launch-sodium-glutamate-research-collaboration-105678023.html
- We find it interesting, and distressing, to find that
the USDA is spending our tax dollars on an industry-designed study undertaken
to establish that ingestion of Ajinomotos neurotoxic and endocrine disrupting
product, monosodium glutamate, will be useful in controlling obesity.
- For many years, Ajinomoto Co., Inc. has been funding
researchers at the University of California, Davis to produce studies promoting
the Ajinomoto Co., Inc. product, with some of the funds being for the University
of California, Davis to cover related expenses.
- We find it interesting that the expressed intent of this
study contradicts work done by industry agents such as Susan S. Schiffman,
Ph. D. who in 1993, published a paper entitled Perception of Taste and
Smell in the Elderly in which she encouraged the use of monosodium glutamate
in foods for the elderly on the basis that it will taste better and the
elderly will, therefore, eat more. Over the years, Dr. Schiffman, often
with glutamate industry agent, Dr. Steve Taylor of the University of Nebraska,
would include this claim in talks to groups responsible for food service.
- It should come as no surprise that a governmental food
safety agency is cooperating with the glutamate industry. For some background
on this subject, go to http://www.truthinlabeling.org/l-manuscript.html
to access a peer reviewed, published paper entitled The Toxicity/Safety
of Processed Free Glutamic Acid (MSG): A Study in Suppression of Information.
Read, under the section entitled Defenders of the Safety of MSG, the sub-sections
entitled Agencies of the United States Government and People and Organizations
Influenced by Glutamate Industry Agents. All one has to do to realize
that monosodium glutamate is a major factor in the obesity epidemic is
to access MEDLINE at www.pubmed.gov and type in monosodium glutamate, obesity.
There are well over 200 references to studies listed that demonstrate
that monosodium glutamate can cause obesity.
- It is time that our governmental agencies involved in
food safety begin to protect consumers rather than spending money to represent
the interests of industry. Everyone who reads this should contact their
representatives in Washington to express their feelings about the USDAs
cooperation with Ajinomoto Co., Inc. We believe that the contract discussed
above should be cancelled by the USDA.
- Jack L. Samuels President Truth in Labeling Campaign
- Obviously, this issue has been answered for decades.
. MSG is known as an excitotoxin, one that makes you fat.
- Why would you investigate a product that causes obesity
like MSG for benefits in weight management? Here are reports by Doctors
Ralph Walton and Sandra Cabot: http://www.rense.com/general91/aspp.htm
Studies show that mice fed MSG become grossly obese. http://www.msgexposed.com/studies-show-msg-fed-mice-became-grossly-obese/
- Now consider MSG research. In 1993 Jack Samuels, President
of the Truth in Labeling Campaign, was reviewing FDA docket files relating
to an FDA study on the safety of amino acids in supplements. In the files,
he found a letter dated March 22, 1991, from Andrew G. Ebert, PhD, Chairman,
International Glutamate Technical Committee - a glutamate industry organization
in which Ebert admitted that aspartame had been used since at least 1978
in test and placebo materials that his organization provided to scientists
who study the safety of MSG.
- A review of studies conducted with the above referenced
test material clearly indicates that some subjects reacted to both MSG
test material and placebo material. Scientists conducting such studies
concluded that since subjects reacted to both MSG and placebos, their reactions
were not from MSG. Even though such logic is highly questionable, we now
know that subjects reacted to placebos because of the presence of aspartame,
an additive that causes MSG-type responses in MSG sensitive people. Because
of the disclosure of the use of aspartame in placebo material by Jack Samuels,
the Federation of American Societies for Experimental Biology in its July
1995 report on the safety of MSG in food, concluded that the use of aspartame
in placebo materials was inappropriate. The word dishonest seems more
appropriate. Knowing that MSG reacts and there is no way to stop that
from happening by using aspartame they could now say MSG did not react
any more than the placebo. The placebo is supposed to be inert.
- The FDA knew this was wrong and illegal and allowed it
for 25 years. Who knows, it may still be done. Yet the FDA has raided
supplement makers for nothing more than products used for good health,
and think nothing of sending these good people to jail. Yet they allowed
the glutamate industry to break the law for a quarter of a century. To
make matters worse Congress just approved S 510 giving the FDA (the Fatal
Drugs Allowed folks) even more power. Its time contributions from Big
Pharma and chemical companies be discontinued. They cant stop the problems
caused by these industries as long as they receive money from them. Congress
needs to listen to the people and think of the world they are leaving to
their grandchildren: http://www.mpwhi.com/aspartame_causes_birth_defects.htm
- Some years ago I wrote this open letter to Ajinomoto.
http://www.wnho.net/ajinomotoletter.htm They have refused to answer,
even though other organizations have asked them to answer it as well.
- Here is another report on Ajinomoto: http://www.wnho.net/recipe_for_death.htm
and another that needs answering: http://www.wnho.net/whopper
- The whole issue is obvious, to get a government agency,
USDA to bless a poison. Dr. John Olney, one of the most renowned neuroscientists
in the world today tried to prevent the approval of aspartame. Forty per
cent of this poisonous molecule is aspartic acid, another excitotoxin.
Dr. Olney founded the field of neuroscience called excitotoxicity. Here
is the 49 page report he wrote to the FDA Board of Inquiry who agreed with
- You will note that Dr. Olney warned about compounding
MSG with aspartame and what it would do to the brains of babies and children.
After the FDA revoked the petition for approval through political chicanery
of Don Rumsfeld who at the time was CEO of Searle got aspartame marketed.
Today Dr. Olney prophecy has been fulfilled.
- "The European Environmental Association has projected
that with the rise of autism caused by toxic foods like Aspartame, MSG,
Fluoride, and environmental degradation, by 2013 no one will be born in
the Western World that does not to some degree have autism. Our board of
AAEM, American Academy of Environmental Medicine and Dr. William Rae, director
of the Dallas Environmental Clinic agreed in open discussion at the October
2010 annual meeting." Bill Deagle, M.D.

An Ignored Epidemic, by H. J. Roberts, M.D., www.sunsentpress.com which
explains the epidemics that have caused mass poisoning of the world. Be
sure to see the movie, Sweet Misery: A Poisoned World, www.soundandfury.tv
- Below is the recommendation of another writer to write
the USDA. Explain to them that research showing an excitotoxin that makes
you gain weight is good for weight management would simply confirm collusion
from Ajinomoto to USDA since it cant be done. The USDA should have the
sense to know that since the research has already been done for decades
showing MSG is an excitotoxijn, a product that stimulates the neurons of
the brain to death causing brain damage of vary degrees.

- I ask that you let your lists know that they should write
to the Secretary of Agriculture and vehemently object to this absurd and
idiotic waste of money and resources, as if Ajinomoto could help "stem
the tide" of obesity! This tells me that Ajinomoto and other corporate
mongerers of neurotoxic carcinogenicity have bamboozled the USDA and the
FDA with their tide of lies and misrepresentations, far worse than I had
ever imagined possible.

- Studies to assess potential efficacy of MSG and umami
on satiety and weight management
- The US Department of Agriculture's Agricultural Research
Service (ARS) and Ajinomoto Company have announced a joint research project
to explore whether the regular inclusion of dietary sodium glutamate (MSG)
used to enhance the taste of foods, has beneficial effects on eating behavior
and body weight management. The trial, which will be conducted by ARS'
Western Human Nutrition Research Center (WHNRC), will assess in overweight
women whether adding sodium glutamate to foods facilitates the control
of appetite and caloric intake, and prevents body weight rebound following
a period of moderate energy restriction and weight loss.
- According to Dr. Kevin Laugero of WHNRC, "For some
people, long term improvements in eating behavior and body weight are difficult
to maintain, and the mechanisms that explain this fact are poorly understood."
- Novel nutrition-based strategies might help people to
improve the quality and amount of food they eat while maintaining the emotional
and pleasurable qualities of eating. Foods or food ingredients that enhance
these qualities of eating might also reduce the drive or motivation to
eat, particularly energy dense foods. MSG has long been known to enhance
the savory quality of foods and promote a positive emotional response (pleasantness)
of eating. Regularly including MSG or foods naturally high in glutamate
may help people to improve the quality and amount of their food intake,
yet maintain the emotional and pleasurable qualities of eating.
- The research is expected to add to the growing base of
science around umami, widely accepted as the fifth basic taste in addition
to sweet, sour, salty and bitter. Glutamate, an amino acid naturally found
in many common foods such as tomatoes, cheese, and cured ham, is considered
the purest form of umami. Recent research has identified umami receptors
on the tongue. Providing a savory taste of its own, umami also enhances
and balances the sensory experience of other tastes. MSG, the sodium salt
of glutamate, improves the palatability of foods and has been widely used
as a flavor enhancer for more than a century, initially in Asia and later
globally. Significant research documents the potential value of MSG as
an aid in reducing dietary sodium.
- Given the global obesity epidemic and the role of diet
as part of the solution, research initiatives such as this are increasingly
important for informing and creating solutions that will improve public
- "The Western Human Nutrition Research Center's expertise
in nutrition and the regulation of food intake and metabolism, combined
with Ajinomoto's demonstrated knowledge and leadership related to umami
and MSG, create a powerful partnership as we seek a better understanding
of how to improve eating behaviors and human health" said Masatoshi
Ito, President and CEO, Ajinomoto Company.
- The trial is expected to be completed in the next two
