What parent would knowingly feed their children poison? If you live in the US, that could be what you are doing – without knowing it, and thinking “all is well since the FDA allows it.”
Well, not really…
I recently came across a book written by a board-certified neurosurgeon, Russell L. Blaylock, MD – “Excitotoxins – The Taste that Kills”
On the back cover of his book, excitotoxin is defined as ” a substance added to foods and beverages that literally stimulates neurons to death, causing brain damage of varying degrees. Can be found in such ingredients as monosodium glutamate, aspartame, cysteine, hydrolyzed protein, and aspartic acid.”
In this book, he outlines how the brain works, and the damaging effects of excitotoxins on the developing brain. He also outlines the link between these food additives and chronic neurological diseases.
Although published in 1997, this information continues to be suppressed… go figure. I’m not surprised, are you?
For those of you looking for the “scientific” proof that much of our processed, modern foods are contributing to our decline in health, I encourage you to read this book. It is a bit heavy and technical, so be prepared. However, the information is life-changing and can literally save your children’s lives, and your family’s life.
