Quaesitor: If people don't know, they can't decide

I know a lot of people here are against social media for various reasons, but this is one area in which I believe social media like FB can be of benefit. I have a large cross-section of people on my friend's list. I have shared GMO information about the outrage other countries feel about GMO and found MANY people don't even know what it is, and it opens up a dialogue. However you have to put yourself out there at the risk of being labelled to do it. I think it's worth it if it helps educate someone about the risks and stranglehold Monsanto has on the US.

UN.i1-PHI: Russia's also saying no to MSG (E621)!

In an attempt to make Russia more healthy, politicians have declared war on MonoSodium Glutamate or MSG (E621).

The State Duma wants warninglabels on packages of foods where the flavor enhancer is processed in.
And seperate shelves for these products have to come in supermarkets.

Three room members of the politic party LDPR have prepared a bill that can count on the aid from different commissions of the State Duma.

Three politicians stress that the most pre-cooked meat- and fishproducts, spices, sauces and chips, contain E621 and that the flavor enhancer is harmful for the health.

Policy makers think that the labels will help in making russia more healthy.

Different Russian fabricants have already decided to not add the 'flavor enhancer'(/additive E621) to their products.
They state that ingredients that are good enough don't have to be 'enhanced'/'strengthened'.

From conversations between News Agency RIA Novosti and experts, it turns out that MSG is addictive, can irritate the nerves in the mouth and in addition can cause genetic mutations.

MSG is also called the 'delightful poison' and is used in great scale by fast food chains.

Food-expert Oleg Lenev noticed that the use of MSG is allowed on the territory of the Russian Federation, but can only be consumed in small amounts.

Because the foodenhancer is increasingly found in more products, in the long run, hitting all sorts of bodily processes out of adjustment.

MSG leads in particular to high bloodpressure, allergic reactions and atopy.

In larger amounts, E621 can have a negative influence on the celebral cortex, with dizziness, head aches, skin rash, irratation and depression as result.

Experts say that in practice it appears to be very difficult to avoid harmful additives.

UN.i1-PHI: Chemist claims she reversed daughter's autism symptoms

By Avoiding E621 or MonoSodiumGlutamate / mononatriumglutamate

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.

“We have glutamate receptors in our body, and 50 percent of our nervous system is excited by glutamate, so we need certain amounts to function," Reid told FoxNews.com. "But it’s all about balance. There’s a huge amount of scientific literature that links many diseases with a glutamate imbalance. And it’s not just autism, but a number of neurological disorders too – there’s a connection to this glutamic imbalance.”
