Dr. Blaylock on MSG, Aspartame, and low Magnesium (MUST READ)

For those of you that don't know Dr. Russell Blaylock, he is a neurosurgeon who has taken an interest in things like MSG, Aspartame, and other poisons found in our food and has studied and explain some of the effects they have on the body.

You can find many great videos from him on YouTube or get great info from his website.

I get so many e-mails everyday that I don't subscribe to any newsletters but my father subscribes to a lot and he always forwards the really good ones to me so I don't miss out on them. Recently, I received one that was an interview with Dr. Blaylock on MSG, Aspartame, and low Magnesium and this is what he had to say:

Dr. Blaylock: Right. Another big scandal concerning the research is something new we found. We discovered that outside of the brain, there are numerous glutamate receptors in all organs and tissues. The entire GI tract, from the esophagus to the colon, has numerous glutamate receptors. The entire electrical conducting system of a heart is replete with all sorts of glutamate receptors. The lungs, the ovaries, all the reproductive systems and sperm itself, adrenal glands, bones and even the pancreas are all controlled by glutamate receptors. They act and operate exactly like the glutamate receptors in the brain. So, when you're consuming MSG, the level of glutamate in the blood can rise as high as 20-fold. You get very high glutamate levels in the blood after eating a meal containing MSG. You're stimulating all of the glutamate receptors. That's why some people get explosive diarrhea and dyspepsia, because it stimulates the receptors in the esophagus and small bowel. Others may develop irritable bowel, or if they have irritable bowel, it makes it a lot worse. If they have reflux, it makes that a lot worse. The thing about the cardiac conduction system glutamate receptors is this may explain the rise in sudden cardiac death.

The Truth About Aspartame, MSG and Excitotoxins. What you see in almost all these cases is low magnesium. When the magnesium level is low, the glutamate receptors become hypersensitive, and so people—athletes in particular, if they are not supplementing with magnesium—are prone to sudden cardiac death, because of the glutamate receptors. If they eat a meal or something that contains glutamate or drink a diet cola before practice, it will produce such intense cardiac irritability, they’ll die of sudden cardiac death. We know the sudden cardiac death is due to two things: Most commonly arrhythmia and coronary artery spasm. Both of which can be produced by glutamate.

Wow, is the only word that came to mind after reading that!

For those of you that don't know much on MSG it is not always labeled as MSG on food items. MSG has gotten a bad rap (for good reasons) over the years and companies in the food industry have found other ways to get it into your food by using other names annd/or other ingredients that contain it.

Here is a great website that has a list of what to watch out for.
