Here is another good reason to avoid any packaged and processed food. There are very few processed foods that don’t contain some form of the flavour enhancer MSG, and among all it’s other dangerous side effects, (brain damage, inflammation, allergies, hyperactivity) it has been shown to cause obesity.
I read about this a long time ago, but it is coming to light again. Scientists that want to study obesity have to cause such a thing in mice or rats, before they can do the study. And they cause that by feeding them MSG!
So is our obesity epidemic not just linked to the sugars and bad fats in processed foods – but in fact to the flavour enhancer as well?
Whole organic living foods as found in nature don’t need flavour enhancers – they are amazing just on their own! Eat as much of them as you like and watch the weight fall off.
Here is a great Natural News article on the subject.
