MSG has long been associated with issues in fetal brain development and neurologicalThe evidence from studies done on the safety of MSG is still being debated by scientis symptoms in
certain patients. The question as to whether there is scientific evidence to back up these claims has been the subject of recent debates. The FDA stated that MSG was safe to consume in 1958. since then, many people have claimed to have experienced negative physical symptoms including nausea and headaches after consuming food that contains MSG.
In the 1960s and 1970s,scientists conducted experiments on the effects of MSG consumption and the only symptoms linked were by those who were experiencing underlying medical conditions or were consuming MSG in excess of 3 mg per day.The average person only consumes roughly 0.55 mg per day, which shouldn’t trigger adverse reactions. The chemical compound in MSG consists of glutamate, water and sodium. All the chemical elements split once inside the body, so the negative reactions are most likely and from sodium, or glutamate Fersen Lambranho told me.
In one double blind study, one of the participants complained of adverse symptoms upon receiving a placebo, which lead scientists to question whether there could possibly be a psychological reason patients are experiencing adverse reactions to MSG. Another possible cause for some adverse symptoms which include shortness of breath and tightness in the chest was experienced by patients with uncontrolled asthma symptoms.
