MSG’s Effects on Children

What Makes Me MSG Sensitive?

MSG affects nearly everyone in some way because free glutamic acid – the business end of MSG and the amino acid that increases in blood concentration when MSG is eaten, is used throughout the body as a chemical messenger and neurotransmitter. However, some people are more sensitive to excess amounts of free glutamic acid in the body than the average person, who may not even notice symptoms of excess free glutamic acid until after many years of MSG ingestion. We think of these persons as “canaries in the coal mine”. They are more at risk of damage from eating MSG than the rest of us – but it is simply a matter of degree. The following are possible reasons for this increased MSG sensitivity:
bullet

Autism – affects 1 in 94 children in NJ
bullet

Genetic errors “miswire” the nervous system for glutamate receptors and synapses
bullet

Genetic error of sulfur metabolism – which affects taurine production and cysteine metabolism.
bullet

Cysteine is used to make glutathione – which is the body’s way of removing toxic mercury. Glutathione is low in autistic children making them more sensitive to mercury toxicity from all other sources.
bullet

Inflammation present which lowers defense of the blood-brain barrier
bullet

Gilbert’s Syndrome – affects mainly boys – 2% of population
bullet

Inability of liver to detoxify the blood
bullet

NMDA glutamate receptors become sensitized
bullet

Inflammation
bullet

Alcohol use which may cause:
bullet

Increased sensitivity of NMDA receptors
bullet

Vitamin B6 deficiency
bullet

Compromised liver
bullet

Compromised liver, (which handles transamination of amino acids) due to:
bullet

Taurine deficiency

bullet

Caused by error of metabolism for sulfur containing amino acids
bullet

Caused by excess estradiol
bullet

Caused by vitamin B6 deficiency

bullet

Gilbert’s syndrome
bullet

Vitamin B6 deficiency
bullet

Transamination difficulty due to errors of metabolism
bullet

Physical damage
bullet

Physical Injury (car accident, etc.)
bullet

Cirrhosis
bullet

Vitamin A toxicity –
Note: Accutane (isotretinoin) drug to treat acne side effects are similar to Vitamin A Toxicity. Unfortunately, teen boys most likely to use Accutane are most likely to be eating too much MSG.
bullet

CoQ10 Deficiency – nerve cells in the brain and elsewhere may not have the ability to withstand the overstimulation caused by excess glutamate.
bullet

Caused by lack of other vitamins (like Vitamin B6) the body needs to manufacture CoQ10.
bullet

Caused by stress
bullet

Epilepsy – MSG can induce seizure
bullet

Caused by autism related genes (20% of autistic children have epilepsy)
bullet

Fibromyalgia – increased nervous system sensitivity
bullet

Caused by autism
bullet

Hypoglycemia which causes a defiency of fuel to protect the blood/brain barrier
bullet

Magnesium Deficiency – Magnesium is used by the nervous system to close calcium channels. MSG is a calcium channel opener.
bullet

Parkinson’s Disease –
bullet

Leads to Vitamin B6 deficiency as some medications require a patient to limit B6 intake.
bullet

Parkinson’s patients already have low dopamine levels. MSG lowers dopamine levels further – counteracting the medication.
bullet

Pre-existing allergies which cause:
bullet

Sensitization of the nervous system due to Nerve Growth Factor (see recent John’s Hopkin’s study on asthma and the nervous system)
bullet

Leaky blood vessels – edema associated with inflammation response.
bullet

Type I Diabetes –
bullet

Caused by antibodies against GAD glutamic acid decarboxylase (85% of those with Type I Diabetes were found to have antibodies against the enzyme that turns excess glutamate into GABA.)
bullet

Autism genes – Type I diabetes is associated with autism spectrum
bullet

Vitamin B 6 deficiency caused by poor nutrition, alcohol use, or limiting this vitamin due to food/drug interactions.
bullet

Vitamin B12 deficiency – Vitamin B12 protects against glutamate neurotoxicity.

From The Truth About MSG

It’s a sad scary truth and I want everyone to know about it so they can keep safe.
