Hello fellow vegetarians and vegans.

I just want to bring up the issue pertaining to this BS additive. I read a lot of your posts and find that all of us (or the vast majority) mean well and are concerened with our health/food industry.
In particular, it appears that no matter what we do, in some shape or form there are ways that crap like this gets added into our foods. Please take a look at this website because I read that a lot of you take TVP, and this additivve is in TVP to some extent or another.

Take Care.

Good morning CollegeB,

I think its like cigarettes...some people smoke a ton and never get cancer while some smoke a few and get cancer. My great grandmother lived to be 97 and surely MSG was in nearly every meal she ate...in the Philippines they put it in everything...I never use it but I don't see it killing you if you eat it when you go out one meal every two weeks or so

That's the problem though, I'm sure there are people who eat it 2 - 3 meals a day, and that's why they have such a hard time eating fresh fruits and giving up processed stuff.

www.truthinlabeling.org

is an excellent website on MSG and the different forms it comes in,
when added to processed food(it's in nearly ALL vegan processed foods/
veggie burgers usually in the form of autolyzed yeast extract, and hydolyzed vegetable protein).


also, you could do a search on Organic Consumers(.org) and find
a plethora of articles and studies on the subject.

I was just reading about how the body, in its search for homeostasis, can adapt to many unnatural situations, and the lungs of smokers adapting to cigarette smoke was one example. Maybe that's one reason second-hand smoke is more dangerous...because non-smokers' lungs haven't adapted.

Who knows??? I say most people here keep a pretty clean diet so a LITTLE(or alot on rare occations) msg wouldn't hurt anyone...just like getting second hand smoke once a month

Hello Veganpotter,

I agree to a certain extent. Certainly we can't drive ourselves crazy. Nonetheless, it's better to know what type of crap this really is. I'd much rather have none than a littlke bit once a month. But as you say, all of us here try to keep a clean as possible diet.
I just wish this junk wasn't in our meals.

Wish you a good one.

Patrick

I definately think you should avoid it at all costs but if you have it once it won't kill you. Hell living in Mexico city is like smoking two packs of cigarrettes a day...would it hurt you anymore if you smoked one every day or would you be healthier if you never smoked any...probably not
