Week 2 - Part 3 - MSG...sneaky and toxic!
MSG is one of the most controversial topics discussed when it comes to food additives and this is why it needs to be taken so seriously.
There are hundreds of food articles related to MSG and the majority of them would call this additive toxic to your health.
Why is it still allowed, you might ask? Well, it's cheap, it makes food taste amazing and it tricks your brain into thinking you want more, so you overeat and want that product again and again and again. Now, what company wouldn't what a product like that in it's food? So, it is still allowed because who is going to argue with these companies, certainly not the authorities. The only way to have it removed is by people power, stop buying it and companies will eventually realise their profits are low and change their ways.
MSG is found in literally thousands of foods on the supermarket shelf, and some of these products may shock you, however, you probably won't see 'MSG' or '621' written on the food label, as it is heavily disguised.
We have fully explained MSG in the attached fact sheet located in the side bar. Please click, print it out and have a read.
