MSG is one of the most dangerous food enhancers found in thousands of processed foods under hidden names. It’s toxic stuff with some very serious side effects and should not be taken lightly. Read your food labels carefully, or better yet, eat food that doesn’t require a label 😉

MSG is also found in many restaurant foods. A tip about eating out, most employees are unaware if the foods have MSG. A lot of people are allergic to this toxin, so be careful here. I rarely eat out anymore because I have personally gotten sick so many times from the MSG in restaurant food. If not 100% sure, avoid it. It’s just not worth it. I’d rather eat real food that makes me feel good!!
