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.
I was in New York and visited a bookstore, and was almost about to walk out when the title Excitotoxins caught my eye. I actually picked the book up thinking it would be about mycotoxins, which are found in mushrooms, and which some WHO scientists have identified as potential carcinogens.
However, upon opening Russell Blaybock's excellent book, I was surprised to find that it was in fact a mystery book - a book written by a neurosurgeon for the purpose of understanding how Parkinson's had struck down one of his parents.
As the son of two parents with Parkinson's, I was entralled by the book's premise - that common food additives could cause demonstrable health problems in sensitive individuals - and shocked that because these effects did not involve the whole population, such additives were deemed to be safe by the FDA. I was also shocked that manufacturers were given the right to add them to food under the guise of "spices", "natural flavoring" and other non de plumes.
When my parents first became ill, I did a large amount of research into Parkinson's and related illnesses. One of the more interesting aspects I came across was the discovery by some researchers that sebhoric dermatitis and Parkinson's may have a link. Being a recent sufferer of this annoying skin condition, my heart sunk on hearing this news.
However, since reading Excitotoxins I have made an effort to rid myself of any intake of the toxic additives mentioned in the book. It should come as no surprise that my skin problem has gone. My energy level has doubled.
I recently visited my parents and gave them a copy of this book.Read more ›

This book is mostly about links between MSG and Alzheimers/Parkinson's. It goes into a lot of scientific detail about prior studies, brain function, etc. Read morePublished on Dec 13 2003
This is to cancel Fred's so called "review". You can bet such an orator has vast knowledge and profound wisdom. Too much sugar and prescription drug abuse I suspect...poor soul.Published on Jan. 29 2003 by T Bradford Wilemon
If you believe in conspiracy theories, You'll like and believe this book. If you believe in real science, then don't waste your money.
It is almost a cliche in this day and age for someone to ask the waiter at a Chinese restaurant 'no MSG, please,' as is the waiter's knowing smirk in response. Read morePublished on April 16 2002 by Ian Vance
