Sorry - an excitotoxin is a neurotoxin, this means it has negative, toxic effects on your brain. MSG has been proven to kill cells in the hypothalamus, an EXTREMELY important part of our brains which regulates body temperature, blood pressure and the heart rate, as well as the part which recieves smell and taste signals, and composes the main link to the pituitary gland, which controls your endocrine (hormonal) and nervous systems. MSG has been linked to negative effects to both the physical and psychological well being of a massive demographic of people. Salt, in large amounts, does have negative health consequences - however, these are a lot easier to manage than the repercussions that come from eating a highly-processed chemical diet.


MSG has several known harmful properties, including making cancer cells more mobile - this means you have an increased chance of the cancer moving to a more serious location, like your brain or pancreas. MSG also causes cancer - a simple google search brings up plenty of bonified research studies which show empirically evidence this. Please be careful about spreading misinformation - our government is doing a good enough job of hoodwinking it's people into delusions of safety regarding the contents of our food. Aspartame and the other artificial sweeteners also have this effect, MSG and Aspartame specifically are known as 'excitotoxins.'

Since MSG has absolutely no known harmful properties, it's hardly an "added bonus" if something doesn't contain it. Maybe if they used more MSG and less salt (which is "natural" but incredibly bad for you), we'd all be better off.
