This stuff is not supposed to be good at all. It's a flavor enhancer that is in a lot of foods but I wonder if it can be linked to some of our anxiety problems? It can cause heart irregularity and a number of other problems. :roll

Does anybody try to avoid eating food that contains this or have you gone organic? Do you cook from scratch without the MSG?

Yes, I have a problem with it. Once my heart races from that and nutrasweet my mind will race and I become paranoid. I avoid it in foods I read labels and I have to watch chinese food. I always ask there or I won't eat it.

Funny you posted this. I went to a restaurant Friday after work. It wasn't asian, but they had a tasty duck entree. I ate it and that night/morning I was sick and felt WEIRD. I realized the restaurant had an asian chef and MSG was used by lots of chinese cooks before we realized it made everybody sick. I'm sure my duck dish/sauce/veggies had MSG in it. I hate that stuff.
