So you think you know what is good food? If USDA approved it then must be, right? Well, maybe but just don’t be so sure about it. If millions of people are eating it then won’t hurt me? Are you sure?
Here is a an article focusing on Glutamate, it will tell you things about the food you might never hear of.
A few important quotes from it:
Excitotoxins are food additives that food producers use to stimulate taste centers in the brain for the purpose of creating an addiction (or at least an increased desire) for the product. Candy, snack food (Doritos have 4 different excitotoxins in its ingredients), Oriental dishes, and prepared meals are notorious for adding excitotoxins to stimulate the brain to desire more. It’s legal and considered ‘good business practice’ by food manufacturers as sales increase.
Remember: By food industry definition, all MSG is “naturally occurring.” “Natural” doesn’t mean “safe.” “Natural” only means that the ingredient started out in nature, like arsenic and hydrochloric acid.
The most important is:
When you eat real, whole foods, you automatically avoid MSG, aspartame and other excitotoxins. No need to memorize the whole list of different food additives, simply skip the processed junk and EAT REAL FOOD! The best advice is to eat food as close to the way God originally created it!
If you have the possibility to cultivate vegetables and fruits in your backyard, do it! Grass might be pretty but you can’t it.
