By: John Erb

I wondered if there could be an actual chemical causing the massive obesity epidemic, so did a friend of mine, John Erb. He was a research assistant at the University of Waterloo, and spent years working for the government.

He made an amazing discovery while going through scientific journals for a book he was writing called The Slow Poisoning of America. In hundreds of studies around the world, scientists were creating obese mice and rats to use in diet or diabetes test studies.

No strain of rat or mice is naturally obese, so the scientists have to create them. They make these morbidly obese creatures by injecting them with MSG when they are first born. The MSG triples the amount of insulin the pancreas creates, causing rats (and humans?) to become obese; they even have a title for the race of fat rodents they create: "MSG-Treated Rats,,,,,,,, MSG”?

I was shocked too. I went to my kitchen, checking the cupboards and the fridge. MSG was in everything! The Campbell's soups, the Hostess Doritos, the Lays flavored potato chips, Top Ramen, Betty Crocker Hamburger Helper, Heinz canned gravy, Swanson frozen prepared meals, Kraft salad dressings, especially the 'healthy low fat' ones. The items that didn't have MSG had something called Hydrolyzed Vegetable Protein, which is just another name for Monosodium Glutamate. It was shocking to see just how many of the foods we feed our children everyday are filled with this stuff. They hide MSG under many different names in order to fool those who catch on.

But it didn't stop there. When our family went out to eat, we started asking at the restaurants what menu items had MSG. Many employees, even the managers, swore they didn't use MSG. But when we ask for the ingredient list which they grudgingly provided, sure enough MSG and Hydrolyzed Vegetable Protein were everywhere. Burger King, McDonalds, Wendy's, Taco Bell, every restaurant, even the sit down ones like TGIF, Chilis', Applebees and Denny's use MSG in abundance. Kentucky Fried Chicken seemed to be the WORST offender: MSG was in every chicken dish, salad dressing and gravy. No wonder I loved to eat that coating on the skin, their secret spice was MSG!

So why is MSG in so may of the foods we eat? Is it a preservative or a vitamin? Not according to my friend John. In the book he wrote, an expose of the food additive industry called The Slow Poisoning of America,, he said that MSG is added to food for the addictive effect it has on the human body. Even the propaganda website sponsored by the food manufacturers lobby group supporting MSG at:


explains . that the reason they add it to food is to make people eat more.

A study of elderly people showed that people eat more of the foods that it is added to. The Glutamate Association lobby group says eating more benefits the elderly, but what does it do to the rest of us?

'Betcha can't eat just one', takes on a whole new meaning where MSG is concerned! And we wonder why the nation is overweight?

The MSG manufacturers themselves admit that it addicts people to their products. It makes people choose their product over others, and makes people eat more of it than they would if MSG wasn't added. Not only is MSG scientifically proven to cause obesity, it is an addictive substance!

Since its introduction into the American food supply fifty years ago, MSG has been added in larger and larger doses to the prepackaged meals, soups, snacks and fast foods we are tempted to eat everyday.

The FDA has set no limits on how much of it can be added to food. They claim it's safe to eat in any amount. How can they claim it is safe when there are hundreds of scientific studies with titles like these?

The monosodium glutamate (MSG) obese rat as a model for the study of exercise in obesity. Gobatto CA, Mello MA, Souza CT, Ribeiro IA. Res Commun Mol Pathol Pharmacol. 2002

Adrenalectomy abolishes the food-induced hypothalamic serotonin release in both normal and monosodium glutamate-obese rats. Guimaraes RB, Telles MM, Coelho VB, Mori RC, Nascimento CM, Ribeiro Brain Res Bull. August 2002

Obesity induced by neonatal monosodium glutamate treatment in spontaneously hypertensive rats: an animal model of multiple risk factors. Yamamoto M, Iino K, Ichikawa K, Shinohara N, Yoshinari Fujishima Hypertens Res. March 1998

Hypothalamic lesion induced by injection of monosodium glutamate in suckling period and subsequent development of obesity. Tanaka K,
Shimada M, Nakao K, Kusunoki Exp Neurol. October 1978

Yes, that last study was not a typo, it WAS written in 1978.

Both the medical research community and food "manufacturers" have known MSG's side effects for decades!

Many more studies mentioned in John Erb's book link MSG to Diabetes, Migraines and headaches, Autism, ADHD and even Alzheimer's.But what can we do to stop the food manufactures from dumping fattening and addictive MSG into our food supply and causing the obesity epidemic we now see?

Even as you read this, George W. Bush and his corporate supporters are pushing a Bill through Congress, and it’s called the:

"Personal Responsibility in Food Consumption Act"also known as the "Cheeseburger Bill” This sweeping law bans anyone from suing food manufacturers, sellers and distributors. Even if it comes out that they purposely added an addictive chemical to their foods.

Read about it for yourself at:

Last month the House of Representatives passed the "Personal Responsibility in Food Consumption Act" to protect the food and beverage industry from civil lawsuits. Under the measure, known as the "Cheeseburger Bill,"people who buy food or drinks couldn't sue the companies that made them, the stores that sold them or the restaurants that served them if they got fat from the products, so long as the products met existing laws. The Senate is expected to take up a similar bill later this year."

The Bill has already been rushed through the House of Representatives, and is due for the same rubber stamp at Senate level. It is important that Bush and his corporate supporters get it through before the media lets everyone know about MSG, the intentional Nicotine for food.

Several months ago, John Erb took his book and his concerns to one of the highest government health officials in Canada. While sitting in the Government office, the official told him "Sure I know how bad MSG is, I wouldn't touch the stuff!" But this top-level government official refused to tell the public what he knew. The big media doesn't want to tell the public either, fearing legal issues with their advertisers. It seems that the fallout on the fast food industry may hurt their profit margin.

So what do we do? The food producers and restaurants have been addicting us to their products for years, and now we are paying the price for it. Our children should not be cursed with obesity caused by an addictive food additive. But what can I do about it? I'm just one voice, what can I do to stop the poisoning of our children, while guys like Bush are insuring financial protection for the industry that is poisoning us.

I for one am doing something about it. I am sending this email out to everyone I know in an attempt to show you the truth that the corporate owned politicians and media won't tell you. The best way you can help save yourself and your children from this drug-induced epidemic, is to forward this email to everyone. With any luck, it will circle the globe before Bush can pass the Bill protecting those who poisoned us. The food industry learned a lot from the tobacco industry. Imagine if big tobacco had a bill like this in place before someone blew the whistle on Nicotine? Blow the whistle on MSG. If you are one of the few who can still believe that MSG is good for us, and you don't believe what John Erb has to say, see for yourself. Go to the National Library of Medicine, at Type in the words "MSG Obese", and read a few of the articles for yourself.

We do not want to be rats in one giant experiment, and we do not approve of food that makes us into a nation of obese, lethargic, addicted sheep, waiting for the slaughter.

With your help we can put an end to this, and stop the Slow Poisoning of America.

Let's save our children. (John Erb)

I read about this last year and I put it to the

test, so I went on an MSG free diet and I can

testify that 2 things happened.

1. I lost 20 pounds in less than 3 months and I

am still loosing weight with ZERO exercise.

2. Appetite DISAPPEARS ... its still there

but its D-R-A-S-T-I-C-A-L-L-Y reduced. For

example I used to wake up hungry even though

I would eat a big meal just before going to sleep

now I sometimes have ZERO hunger pangs in the

morning. I don't have to believe that we are

being poisoned by powerful appetite stimulants,

I know we are. MSG and aspartame simply short

circuit your body's internal mechanisms that

tell your brain that your "tank is full".

Althought I am already quite thin I'd still like to try an MSG-free diet. What does your typical diet consist of nomad? I'm curious :)

My family looks at me like I'm crazy when I say things like "It's not normal to gain a lot of weight when you age" unlike how they think it is :(

Eat whole grain foods. Eat bread. Snack on fruit and vegetables. Cook your own meats instead of TV dinner shit. Don't ever microwave your food. If you ever cook and have left overs, eat the left overs cold, cuz each re-heat takes more nutrients out of the food. Drink filtered water. That's my rule of thumb. :-P

The truth in this thread ... bump!

It's old but it's good!

DT291 04-19-2005 10:04 PM

That's pretty similar to my current diet at home nohope except for the cold leftovers. That would take some getting used to. My major things I'd need to give up would be sodas (it's hard for me :() and fast food for lunch out of laziness.

Thats the trouble...people are so tired and working in meaningless jobs that they have no energy to look after themselves.

Often food is a reward for doing things you hate...which usually means snack/crap food.

I've had 2 really bad experiences with MSG in the last 2 weeks. I've been low on cash and eating instant soups and manufactured smoked the ton...could'nt satisfy my hunger and found myself INCREDIBLY irritable and depressed.

Mono Sodium Glutamate is poisen! My friend used to fatten rats up on it and then introduce tumours afterwards when he was a undergrad, bio science.

I'm pretty sure it's "SALT 451" on the back of the food label.

O, oh...666 posts...i could quickly add another one...but then, the devil got into me and i think i'll leave it for a day or 2. Just to annoy the people who PM and reckon i'm an agent of Goldstein.

Great posts 55132, and thanks Nomad for the scientific feedback. There's a site that talks about the microwaved food issue, aspartame and many others.

The "diet" is simple and it can not fail you.

Whatever man made or altered, you avoid

as much as possible.

Whatever God made that was not altered you eat.

However...Japanese people eats LOTS of MSG in everything (Aji-No-Moto) and they have much better health than Westerners.
North Americans eat so badly because fruits and vegetables are so expensive and they don`t eat it. Junk food is much cheaper. When I lived in the US I was amazed to see how many people suffered from weird diseases that we NEVER see here in Brazil, especially degeneration of muscles and young people !
I find it sad that Americans waste much of their time saying that milk is bad, sugar is bad, etc...turn on the radio on Saturday and thats all you hear. Total paranoia. A diverse, natural diet is all you need to keep healthy. Some sugar in moderate quantities, some milk, fruits, vegetables, meat. Add some fiber from natural grains and you are set. No big deal at all.

The real problem is that the food industry is controlled by corrupt companies like ADM that sell all the raw materials to make crap food. Monsanto also manipulates the food industry to make huge profits. Read "Fast Food Nation" to get an idea of why Americans are being poisoned.

I just watched a reality TV show last night where an American couple (both MDs) were eating canned chili for dinner. Come on, both of them MDs, millionaires, and eating CANNED CHILI ! And you spend your time trying to fight good old, natural sugar cane sugar.
