MSG and aspartame can significantly damage your central nervous system and why the junk food industry loves MSG, aspartame and GMOs?
The giant agribusinesses and junk food industry are in the business of making people sick and they would use any means necessary to increase their profit at the expense of the public’s health. As a matter of fact, eight giant pesticide companies are also in charge of the world biggest pharmaceutical and biotech companies.
These corporations spend billions of dollars promoting and selling their toxic foods instead of claiming that they offer proper research and independent studies that supposedly render their poisons being "safe". To promote their PR image, they publically contribute millions of dollars to cancer research centers and associations like American Diabetes to sell more chemicals for treatment.
As a matter of fact everyone knows that in the last decade, the rate of chronic diseases including cancer, diabetes and obesity have increased drastically. While many independent studies and research have concluded that toxic foods and additives including MSG, aspartame and GMOs can increase the risk of chronic disease like cancer, these foods are regulated and considered safe by giant Agribusinesses and US regulatory agencies.
These toxic foods and additives are deadly concoctions of carcinogens that damage every single organ in your body. One would wonder how any company with some conscience is allowed to knowingly manufacture a product that poison its consumer?
Monosodium glutamate also known as MSG is used to flavor junk foods, since processed foods have no longer any real flavor because most of their ingredients have been genetically modified (in a soil that has no nutrients left because it’s been overharvested), over cooked, fried or contaminated with lots of chemicals and pesticides.
The authorities don’t seem to care much since MSG can be hidden in infant formula, low fat milk, soups, snacks, sauces, gravies, candy, chewing gum, drinks, over-the-counter medications (especially children’s), as a binder and filler for nutritional supplements and fruit yogurts, prescription drugs, IV fluids given in hospitals, and in the chicken pox vaccine.
But that’s not all. This stuff is harmful because, it destroys nerve cells in the brain, inhabits natural growth hormone and dramatically promotes irreversible obesity. Other reactions can be headaches, migraines, nausea, weakness, a burning sensation in the back of neck and forearms, wheezing or difficulty in breathing, and changes in heart rate, pulse rate, and/or heart palpitation.
The evil side of MSG that the food industry does not want you to know is the fact that MSG tricks your taste buds into thinking that you are eating protein that’s nutritious and wholesome. But the reality cannot be any further from the truth. While the blood glucose levels look normal, MSG is creating an insulin explosion in your blood stream.
So, MSG increases your appetite as a result of protein stimulation with the insulin release. No wonder why one in three kids born after the year 2000 are either obese or overweight and America keeps getting fatter and fatter while food portions keep getting bigger and bigger.
MSG can be hidden under 40 different names and in order to cut out MSG from your diet or diet of your children, you will need to read the labels very carefully. Some other commercial names for MSG are Monosodium glutamate, Glutamic acid, glutamate, calcium glutamate, free glutamate, hydrolyzed proteins (any type), soy protein, soy protein concentrate, soy protein isolate, textured protein, whey protein, whey protein concentrate, whey protein isolate, calcium caseinate, autolyzed yeast, yeast extract, yeast food, and yeast nutrient, gelatin, sodium caseinate, caseinate, anything "hydrolyzed," and “natural” or artificial flavors.
Aspartame consists of three compounds known as methyl alcohol (wood alcohol), aspartic acid and phenylalanine. Consuming aspartame in sodas can cause flooding of amino acids in the blood stream that can lead to many health problems. Methanol in aspartame is broken down into two toxic substances called formaldehyde and formic acid. Formaldehyde is a toxic carcinogen that damages neurons and is related to birth defects and DNA replication. Aspartame is linked to many other problems inclduing headaches, nausea, mood swings, changes in vision, diarrhea, inflammation, nerve damage, brain damage, leukemia, confusion to memory loss, alzheimer’s and sleeping disorder.

In addition, Acesulfame potassium is also used in sodas, protein powder and chewing gums and like aspartame is a cancer causing carcinogen that can mess with your central nervous system and digestive tract. Acesulfame potassium (ACE-K) is a known carcinogen that contains methylene chloride and is linked to many health problems such as liver and kidney damage, nausea, migraines, moodiness and cancer. The sweet Misery and a poisoned world, so they can kill you softly (Hidden carcinogens in foods and artificial sweeteners like Acesulfame Potassium and Aspartame)
Before the Republican’s heroic President Ronald Reagan got into the office, aspartame was banned in America but as soon as Ronald Reagan took the office, he and Donald Rumsfeld (former Secretary of Defense) assigned Arthur Hayes Hull, Jr., as commissioner of FDA. Arthur Hayes Hull immediately approved aspartame, without even considering that the original documents of FDA warned that heat exposure will make aspartame break down into dangerous carcinogens and aspartame should not be used for cooking or baking.
Donald Rumsfeld became in charge of Pentagon twice under Gerald Ford in 1975 and George Bush in 2000. From 1976 to 1985, Donald Rumsfeld was the chief executive of the pharmaceutical giant G D Searle & Company that was the producer of Searle’s aspartame (NutraSweet). Later on Donald Rumsfeld used his connections in Washington to approve NutraSweet that made half of Searle profit. Later on, Searle was sold to giant biotech company, Monsanto.
Donald Rumsfeld was the one who called European countries (France and Germany) that did not support the invasion of Iraq and all the war crimes in 2003, the “old Europe”.
Although Bush was a lame-duck president for 8 month, soon after the 9/11 attack he rediscovered his mission that was appointed to him by God to fight the holy war on terror. Secretary Rumsfeld was in charge of the Defense Department during the 9/11 attack and the one backing all the crimes that took place after 9/11. http://www.nndb.com/people/634/000023565/
With all the health risks associated with GMOs, 30 countries have banned GMOs and more than 56 other countries have required GMO labeling. However, since in the United States, we let money buy these corporations freedom of speech, the giant biotech and chemical companies can spend millions of dollars to defeat GMO labeling movement. They also have pro-GMO crowds that would attack and demonize anyone who questions the safety of GMOs. http://seattleorganicrestaurants.com/vegan-whole-food/Monsanto-GMO-military-government-cyber-warfare.php
The deep pockets of biotech and chemical companies almost buy every single election in this country and they have been able to penetrate deep inside the US governmental regulatory agencies like FDA and have bought the politicians to vote ‘No’ on laws the would require GMO labeling.
