Neurons are found throughout the brain and nervous system, and the function of these unique cells is critical for a variety of tasks, ranging from autonomic nervous system jobs like swallowing to higher-level brain function. Neurotoxins can work in a variety of ways, with the danger of exposure varying, depending on the neurotoxin involved and the dosage.” Neurotoxins can be found in nearly every processed food and beverage on grocery store shelves. This includes processed organic foods! The consumption of processed foods in the American diet are skyrocketing and shows no sign of slowing down. In 2010, Americans spent 90% of their ...

Monosodium Glutamate (MSG) is a chemical that food manufacturers add to their products to enhance flavor; it is a cheap way to make very low quality foods taste great. What food manufacturers don’t want us to know is that MSG is a neurotoxin. A neurotoxin is a chemical that has a degenerative effect on the brain and nervous system. Consumed on a regular basis, MSG creates lesions in the hypothalamus part of the brain.  When this occurs, neurotoxins enter the brain and cause damage. The damage caused results in abnormal development such as obesity, impaired growth, sexual reproductive problems, sleep difficulties and emotional problems. One source of ...

Baby Formula: MSG, Excitatory Neurotoxins & HFCS!!!

Monosodium Glutamate (MSG) or Glutamic Acid is an excitatory neurotoxin, which significantly damages the brain, especially the brains of infants and children. Once the developing brain is damaged, it never recovers normal function. There has been a significant increase in neurological disturbances in children over the last several decades. For example, the rate of autism, a developmental disorder that affects communication and social skills, was around four or five cases per 10,000 early in this decade. In 2009, it was closer to 80 per 10,000. MSG also contributes to the epidemic of obesity in children, and more recently infants, that is taking place currently. Other additives such as High Fructose Corn Syrup (HFCS) and sugar substitutes such as NutraSweet and ...
