I would like to thank the reviewers who gave a favorable review, but especially I would like to say to those who were helped by the book, God bless you. As for the harshly critical reviewers, most are from those who know little about the subject and could care less. At least one prefers hedonistic pleasures of gustatory stimulation over scientific fact and logical conclusions based on science. I direct this at the reviewer who stated, rather condescendingly, that I knew very little biochemistry and was so uninformed that I wasn't aware that Parkinson's disease occurred before the arrival of MSG and aspartame. In fact I majored in biochemistry in undergraduate school and completed with honors biochemistry in medical school. I continue to be a student of neurochemistry. My articles on these subjects are printed in peer-reviewed medical journals, which I'm sure the reveiwer would have difficulty understanding. Cysteine is a neurotoxin, as is homocysteine, phenalanine, glutamate and aspartate and a number of naturally occurring amino acids. Has the reviewer ever heard of PKU? While cysteine plays a vital role in brain protection, it is only safe as the N-acetyl product and as cystine. Cysteine, beside being an excitotoxin itself, is converted to homocysteic and homocysteine sulphinic acid, both very powerful excitotoxins. Sulfite, a metabolite of cysteine, is also a powerful neurotoxin (as in sulfate oxidase deficiency). As for the causation of Parkinson's and other neurodegenrative diseases, I never said they were exclusively caused by food born excitotoxins-in fact, in three places in the book I make this point. I do contend they exacerbate the symptoms and accelerate the progression of these diseases.Read more ›

Do you know what those words "NATURAL FLAVORS", or "CITRIC ACID" really mean on that item you keep serving your family.??? Of course not. And if you are like most they sound like pleasant, even healthy, items on the ingredient list. Great. That was the plan of Monsanto (msg) industry giant. If you knew, they'd be out of business, doctors would have free time, pharmaceutical companies would have surpluses of unused medications, and the government would be short some big money buddies.
I read this book, used the advice, and no longer need treatment for hives, migraines, sinusitis, chronic fatigue, anxiety attacks, chronic cough, acid stomach!! I am a nurse who works in the psychiatric field, I have used this to help myself, my family, friends, and numerous patients get off their medications and live a normal life!! I kept giving everyone vitamins and protein shakes hoping to straighten out our ailments only to find that the neurotoxins alarming Dr. Blaylock were in these supplements, and in large doses.. Stearic acid, magnesium stearate, chelated minerals with aspartate, asporotate, whey protein, yeast selenium, yeast B vitamins!!. No wonder I kept feeling worse the more money I spent. My poor son kept coming home sick from school (headache, stomach ache). Doctors advised- it is just emotions and "be firm". But once I read the book, eliminated the neurotoxins and took him off the liquid vitamins with "natural flavors" and benzoate he was fine... an honor roll student, playing basketball and happy. My son loves Dr. Blaylock for this. It is a big job but becomes easy to eliminate these when you use support from websites like nomsg.com and battlingthemsgmyth.com all of these people read Blaylock's book and expand on recipes and foods to make the change he recommends. Read the book. You owe it to your self and your family.

If you think that this book is pseudo-science and crackery, conduct a test on your own body. Cleanse your body for 30 days, abstaining from all sugar-substitutes, and processed artificially sweetened carbohyrdrate foods. Then have a few cans of your favorite aspartame sweetened softdrink. You should get an *extremely* bad headache in about 1-2 hours. You may say that this really does not prove a thing...mere coincidence..... but the severity and intensity of the headache will make you think otherwise. Cutting out these excitotoxins will, in the least, make you feel better, and may possibly prevent the onset of serious disease/disorders later on in life.

Format: Paperback
This book is excellent and should be read by anyone who cares about their health, but especially (future)parents who care about their children's brain health. Before I read this book I was one of the many people within this and other societies that had no clue that a lot of our food contains msg. Not only that, but this book also showed me how serious msg is and that although it is dangerous and trials have shown this dangers, nothing has been done about banning the substance from the food market. This book is very shocking, at least it was to me. The most shocking thing I learned is that msg is even used in babyfood, even though they are especially suceptable, because their brain has still a lot of growing to do. This book also tied in with one of my college research papers and so I got the chance to research the topic further and the most important information I came across, was that all trials that were done independately found somekind of a healthconcern, whereas trials done by the FDA and corporations didn't find any health concerns. So even if you don't buy this book, look out for aspartame and glutamates (for example: monosodium glutamate)or it might cost you your memory later on.
