HAVE A CHILD OR KNOW A CHILD WITH AUTISM? YOU MAY WANT TO READ THIS ARTICLE.

Dear Readers:

Came across this article today and since I have some friends dealing with this issue, I thought there would be others who would want to read it.   I have long campaigned against MSG and I guess this article will add more ammunition to my argument.  

The article starts:
"A Bay Area biochemist thinks she's found a sort of autism smoking gun: monosodium glutamate, or MSG. 

It's a chemical compound almost exclusively connoted with Chinese food, but Katherine Reid points out that it's found in all but 5 percent of processed food, largely unbeknownst to us: It appears on the food label only about 1 percent of the time.

But if things like flavor or flavoring, soy protein, whey protein, pectin, corn starch, or stock make an appearance (many, many more listed on this pdf), you're consuming MSG, she says, needlessly.

According to Reid, many neurodevelopmental disorders like autism are potentially linked with an improper balance of glutamate intake."
