Monosodium glutamate (MSG) is used commonly in most food these days. Why? It is simply enhancing the taste of the food. Many said that it CAUSES, health issues, like headache, nausea, palpitations, and even weakness of brain cells that make people dumb. However, researchers refuted otherwise, saying that there is no evidence that these health issues were caused by MSG. Do you use MSG when you cook food ? or do you eat food with MSG? Do you think it is healthy to eat food with MSG?

They said it is good for the health also if in moderation, they find no evidence that's it is bad actually.

the problem is MSG is a easily transferred sodium ion, ergo it can be bad for you.

@Mavic123456 yes MSF is very prevalent, - more dangerous in the US where table salt is used more.

My professor said that anything in excess would be poison. If you consume excessive water, then the water will become "poisonous" or cause an imbalance in the body. So I don't think msg is bad as long as you don't eat too much

I think you and your professor are correct. all in excess is surely not too good. I wonder if I eat too much vegetables will that result to bad effect too.

I do not use it, and most products in the U.S. don't, and even market their products as not having it. I have never heard it being good for anyone.

My granduncle won't believe this He would usually buy the huge pack that's for restaurant. If I told him it's bad for health, he would definitely refute me.

I always heard that MSG is completely harmless unless you're allergic to it and in that case, you get the headaches and everything else. I don't know if that's true, I'm just a Gynecologist, not a Nutritionist.
