Thanks so much for this.

I have noticed that I get massive headaches when I eat processed foods that have
"natural flavorings or colors"
I was invited once to very fancy Asian restaurant, where I ended up sick afterwards.
I found out that they use MSG in their food. So, I avoid processed foods & I am very careful of what I order in restaurants.

Cheers to that countryl22.

And it's a shame that all of these deceptive "names" can be slapped onto to products that go into our bodies.

Consuming processed foods is death by a thousand cuts. These products are used because they are cheap, not for any other reason. They are deceptively marketed to us as okay to ingest, but our bodies cannot effectively process these ingredients and they begin to slowly build in our system. This will cause humans to have numerous symptoms that are not taken seriously by western medicine. So people take other drugs to satisfy that need instead of realizing that their food is the problem.

Monosodium glutamate IS MSG, so no guise on that one. MSG has been around a long time so it is probably safe. I don't see any reason to use it other than for flavor. It's 12% sodium so not terribly salty. It's present in foods like Ramen and we know how healthy that is.
