“Health Ranger Mike Adams sat down recently with Dr. Russell Blaylock, noted neurosurgeon, author and foremost authority on excitotoxins such as MSG and aspartame, to discuss the dangers of these substances for NaturalNews TV.
In the interview, Blaylock talks about monosodium glutamate (MSG), aspartame and other dangerous excitotoxins that can cause neurological diseases, as well as the importance of good nutrition and its effect on the brain and recovery from brain injuries. Also, Adams and Blaylock talked about just what “MSG Syndrome” really is, how toxic MSG can be and what the substance does to the brain and brain function, especially in young children.
Blaylock talked about how MSG has become a major contributor to the obesity epidemic in America and American children, and how food companies hide dangerous food additives under many different names.
How does nutrition play a role?
The neurosurgeon said he became interested in the nutrition aspect of neurological disorders during his residency.
“I wanted to know what caused all of these neurological diseases,” he said. “That naturally led to looking into what produced these problems.”
As he researched the subject, Blaylock said he eventually came across a book by author George Schwartz titled In Bad Taste: The MSG Symptom Complex, which laid out the dangers of MSG and how prevalent it was in processed foods.
“I started researching what [MSG] did to the brain and I was absolutely astounded by what I found,” Blaylock told Adams, discoveries which led him to write his own book on the subject in 1994.
MSG is a form of concentrated salt added to foods to enhance the flavor. It’s dangerous because, as Schwartz found, it can cause migraine headaches and balance difficulties, precipitate severe shortness of breath, asthma attacks and heart irregularities, cause disabling arthritis, and even serious depressions, not to mention behavioral problems in children.”
