MSG and Aspartame Are the Two Leading Causes of Central Nervous System Damage in the United States

Excitotoxins, as they are appropriately named, are supposed to enhance flavor and excite your taste buds, but this “class” of chemicals overstimulate neuron receptors, which are what allow brain cells to communicate with each other. This causes a firing of impulses at such a rapid rate that they become completely exhausted, and several hours later, these depleted neurons die. This is true cell death, and the parts of the brain that are specifically targeted by excitotoxins are the hypothalamus and temporal lobes, which not only control behavior, emotions, and sleep cycles, but you guessed it, immunity. (

Aspartame and MSG stimulate the taste cells in the tongue, causing food flavor to be enhanced, especially in soups, snacks, sauces, gravies, low-fat processed foods, and now aspartame is found in 95 percent of breath mints and chewing gum, even when they’re not “sugar free.” If you regularly experience any or all of the following, it’s about time to question the amount of “excitotoxins” that are swimming through your heart and brain. Do you suffer from migraine headaches, inflammation, unwarranted weight gain, rashes and “crawling skin?” It may all be spurred by genetically modified flavor enhancers.

Let’s cover all of the bases. Monosodium glutamate (MSG) has at least 20 different names. There are many other products/additives that are simply “sisters” or “cousins” of MSG, but beware, because MSG is a macro-combination of these other “food” additives and chemically engineered flavor enhancers. Plus, the MSG “cousin” additives do not have to be labeled as MSG because they are not manufactured in tandem, so when enough of them add up in your daily intake, you may as well have eaten MSG on an empty stomach.

How do you avoid MSG, aspartame and their criminal cousins?

Stop buying and stop consuming the following: Glutamic acid, glutamate, monopotassium glutamate, calcium glutamate, autolyzed yeast, calcium caseinate, gelatin, anything “hydrolyzed,” sodium caseinate, soy protein, soy protein concentrate, soy protein isolate, textured protein, whey protein, whey protein concentrate, whey protein isolate, yeast extract, yeast food, and yeast nutrient. (

Warning: don’t be fooled by “Pro-MSG” websites that state MSG is an amino acid that the “body produces on its own,” because the MSG on store shelves is processed, GMO and comes from fermented sugar beets. That’s why Monsanto has a monopoly on sugar beets. Watch out for glutamic acid and its ions and salts called glutamates, which are compounds found in many fermented foods, including soy sauce, cheese and hydrolyzed protein.

MSG is the leading cause of migraine headaches, which result from a blood vessel enlargement and the release of chemicals from nerve fibers that coil around these vessels. During the headache, an artery enlarges outside the skull, but just under the skin (the temple). This is when the warning signs that you’ve consumed MSG ring out, and many people experience flashes of light, blind spots, tingling in the arms and legs, nausea, vomiting, and increased sensitivity to light and sound. The pain becomes so excruciating, it’s almost unbearable. Some migraines are known to last for days. Could that be because the medicine you take contains more?

The “K” criminal “Acesulfame K” creates “significant doubt”

Chemical sweeteners should be entirely avoided by all human beings at all times and you have to know their “hiding places” in order to keep them out of your body. Acesulfame K is just a cousin of aspartame, so don’t be fooled by the label. Acesulfame Potassium (K) was approved for use by the FDA in July of 1988. It is a derivative of acetoacetic acid. Several animal studies/findings show the following: Acesulfame K stimulates insulin secretion in a dose dependent fashion thereby possibly aggravating reactive hypoglycemia (low blood sugar attacks). Acesulfame K produced lung tumors, breast tumors, and several forms of leukemia and chronic respiratory disease in rodent studies, even when less than maximum doses were given. Still, the FDA eliminated “significant doubt” about its safety and kept it on the shelves. (

Aspartame was banned for decades in the U.S. until 1980, when Ronald Reagan and the infamous Donald Rumsfeld fired the head of the FDA and hired Arthur Hayes Hull, Jr., who immediately approved aspartame ( Hull later left the FDA under allegations of impropriety and then took a position with Burston-Marsteller, the chief public relations firm for both Monsanto and GD Searle. Since that time, he has never spoken publicly about aspartame. Nobody wonders why.

Rumsfeld was CEO of Searle Pharmaceutical, which pushed heavily (lobbied millions of dollars) for years foraspartame’s and MSG approval. Perfect timing for the weight loss craze of the 80s, and look where it got the masses. Can you say obesity problem? Rumsfeld made campaign contributions to at least two Democratic candidates for office, Bill Bradley and John Glenn. Since then, aspartame and MSG have invaded the medicine and supplement markets. MSG and Sorbitol (chemical sweetener) can be found in flu shots and vaccines.

The CDC website states that, “chemicals are added to vaccines to inactivate a virus or bacteria and stabilize the vaccine, helping to preserve the vaccine and prevent it from losing its potency over time,” but what about destabilizing the human being who is having damaging neurotoxins injected directly into the blood stream? What about that? MSG and aspartame cross the blood-brain barrier and can do irreparable damage to the central nervous system (CNS).

Aspartame and MSG are GMOs

The bottom line is that MSG and aspartame are chemicals and should have NEVER been allowed in food or medicine. It is an atrocity to mankind and the entire healthcare industry. Aspartame actually tricks your body into thinking its getting something sweet, so you crave more, and you’re hungrier, all while your body is ingesting a mutagenic carcinogen. This is when the REAL DAMAGE gets done. Aspartame causes nervous disorders and is not natural. It can turn into formaldehyde in the body, especially during physical exhaustion and when being digested on an empty stomach. Both MSG and aspartame cause cells to mutate and multiply uncontrollably (cancer) in lab mice and in human beings.

Here’s a list of short and long-term disorders from consuming the food drugs MSG and aspartame, and how you can spot them “hidden” in products:

• Neurotransmitters can be disrupted: MSG and aspartame interact with other drugs and vaccines. They don’t tell you THAT on the chips and chewing gum labels.

• Activity in the medulla oblongata is disrupted: This very small section of the brain stem has a very large amount of responsibility in the human body, including muscle movement, autonomic body functions and excitatory reactions. These food “drugs” can cause misfiring synapses, leading to confusion, seizures, chronic depression and thoughts of suicide. (

• Neuromuscular disorders and brain lesions.

• Nearly 30 million Americans suffer from migraine headaches ( MSG has also been known to cause asthma and heart irregularities. (

• MSG can give babies brain damage (

• MSG causes nervous disorders and most doctors will not tell you about it, but instead prescribe dangerous pharmaceuticals to cover the symptoms (

• Watch out for the renaming of aspartame; “this is precisely the strategy of Ajinomoto, maker of aspartame, which hopes to pull the wool over the eyes of the public with its rebranded version of aspartame, called “AminoSweet” (

• Aspartame is inconspicuously marketed under various brand names like Equal, Nutrasweet, Spoonful, Indulge, Equal-Measure, etc. It is found in thousands of products including children’s vitamins and protein powders. It is the most widely used artificial sweetener and has captured 50 percent of the world market since 1981.

Symptoms of aspartame poisoning include dizziness, muscle spasms, insomnia, slurred speech, vertigo, memory loss, joint pain, and of course, seizures. The most ironic symptom is loss of taste ( Consumption of food flavoring criminals can cause dopamine and serotonin levels to be disrupted and altered. That’s right; you don’t have to be on “psych meds” to experience depression, anxiety and migraine headaches. Basically, the food industry is working hard to get you to go to your “doctor” for a Big Pharma prescription, which will ironically ADD side effects and new symptoms of TOXIC BLOOD, like severe mood swings, feelings of depression and suicide.

No thanks! Let’s stick with organic food and natural remedies.

  2. Thank you Steve! My husband is a doctor and with all the claims out there right now about everything, his answer to me when I ask – “it has not been in a scientifically controlled test”. That is when we need to believe it. My aunt in allergic to aspertame but I am allergic to shellfish!

  3. This my favorite quote in the article “MSG can give babies brain damage” Kind of funny since human breast milk has .176 g of glutamate per cup. So babies shouldn’t breast feed? Also linking other sites is not a source. Link a scientific paper if you want to have someone take you even a little serious.

    MSG is made though fermentation. So it is as natural as beer, or yogurt or vinegar or cheese.

    It is as bad for you as salt is. If you are allergic to anything it can hurt you, like nuts or shell fish. Should we ban those too?

    Don’t believe me? Just do some actual research and don’t believe random websites.

  4. Sorry to hear that Donna. Thank you for sharing your story which should be a warning to all of us. Hope some good news comes your way in terms of your thyroid and managing the RA.

  5. I don’t agree with the title. In my opinion, VACCINES are the leading cause of CNS damage for the simple reason that vaccines contain a multitude of neurotoxins (including MSG) and because vaccinations affect far more people and particularly children the world over than MSG or aspartame.

  6. I started drinking diet Pepsi about Sept 2010. By November I was having excruciating arthritis in my feet (I had arthritis for years, but not this type of pain). The tops of my feet would just hurt all of a sudden. Then I started to not be able to lift my arms, I couldn’t get out of bed. I found out I had an allergy to aspertame by stopping the diet Pepsi and getting better the next day. Within a couple more days the terrible pain in my feet had calmed down. Then I was diagnosed with rheumatoid arthritis. In less than 2 weeks I will be having half my thyroid removed. I know this related to the aspertame and a work injury that occured in the same time frame. I the aspertame depleted my immune system and caused my cells to overreact causing the problems I am having. I am on a cancer med and steroids for the rest of my life for the RA, which will eventually kill me. There is no family history of this at all, it started with me and aspertame. I will find out in a few weeks if my thyroid is cancer free or not. Stay away from artificial sweetners I always did because they made me sick, but I thought I was over that and able to have a diet soda once in a while. Now I will never have another, but I will forever have the problems I am experiencing now.

  7. Splenda is a chemically altered form of sugar (sucralose) and should be avoided. If you need a sweetener, try stevia extract. It is made from plants and is not chemically altered. You can find it at most health food stores and is even making it into mainstream groceries – usually under the brand Truvia. If you are diabetic, you should search for Kal Pure Stevia which is a specific brand I have found NOT to spike my blood sugar. Splenda is also dangerous

  8. is using Splenda the same as the rest of the sweetners..i don’t see aspurtame written on the package..thanks in advance

  9. Saccharine (sweet&low) has also been found to cause metabolic cancers. The only problem I have with this article is the comment about injecting it into the bloodstream. Vaccines are injected into deep muscle, not veins. There is a significant difference.

  10. Read and heed! If you’re scared, you’re smart. We fought for freedom, and it is being taken from us. Guess where Hitler got many of his ideas? From the “elite” right here in the USA who are believed to be too dumb to know better. If we don’t do something now, we are going to prove they are right. So let’s DO something! Where you spend your money is a place to start. Contact our representatives–those are the people we voted into office to represent US, not big money. Think your doctor reads the literature about side effects? Think again. From experience, I found they listen to the drug reps. When I got breast cancer, my well-respected oncologist told me the drug he was giving me had no side effects. I went back two months later with a list, and I was told the problems weren’t from the meds. Today, there are pages of side effects, including every one I listed. Listen to your body, know doctors are people, and be your own advocate. Help to stop the insanity or it will kill us and our children! Think it can’t happen? Read your history books!
