the hidden MSG in our food

thanks to a new friend who sent me some links, i've finally found a good list of all the different ways that MSG can be listed in the ingredients of our food.  take a look and see for yourself here

in case you are wondering why MSG is bad, here's a brief description found on Channing McKinley Chiropractic's blog

"It is a neurotoxin that excites brain cells and then kills them. All this so that foods have more intense flavor (to replace flavor that is lost because they are processed and preserved)."

i feel constantly bombarded with "new" information about things that are harming me and my children, but i also feel empowered every time i make an informed choice about our food, our healthcare and our lives in general. 

so today's lesson?  read the labels on your food
