Is it worth it to ingest these excitotoxins?


Now that you know, will you keep feeding processed food and diet drinks to your children?

Will you keep eating it yourself?

Remember if you eat any kind of packaged, processed food or eat out at restaurants, you will be eating MSG. That’s another reason that I advocate eating whole foods, meat, vegetables, fruit, nuts and seeds and whole grains. Especially if you prepare it yourself, you will avoid eating toxins, brain killers.

Even if you ask the restaurant personnel if there is MSG in their food and they say no, you probably will still be eating it. They are not lying to you, they just do not know about all of the hidden sources of MSG in food. See this list for other names or sources of MSG in food.

Diet drinks contain aspartate. In the liquid form this excitotoxin enters the blood stream more rapidly. “Sugar-free” mints usually contain aspartate. Try substituting mints made with xylitol which helps prevent tooth decay.

Try substituting stevia, an herb, as a sweetener in tea or other drink. Mix fruit juice and sparkling water for a drink refreshment occasionally, maybe for special holidays or celebrations. Fruit juice is still a concentrated sweet that is hard on the body’s metabolism and sparkling water like any carbonated beverage upsets mineral balance in the body. Mostly drink pure water.

Congratulations on taking charge of your health. Continue to look for hidden toxins in your food. Take charge and keep your family healthy for all of your lives.

If you want to know a whole lot more about excitotoxins, read Dr. Blaylock’s book, Excitotoxins, the Taste that Kills, copyright 1997 with an update at the end. Although fairly technical writing in parts of the book, the information on the normal functioning and development of the nervous system is fascinating. And the research and information about excitotoxins is eye opening.
