MSG and Autism

MSG and Autism

 By John Erb-Age of Autism

 

….This experience twenty years ago shaped my view of Autism and the direction of the research journey I have taken.  In 2003 I finally put my ideas to paper.  In the book called The Slow Poisoning of America, I theorized that something was actually causing the brains of those with ASD to grow too much.  The culprit:  Monosodium Glutamate. Introduced to the America diet in 1950 it is an amino acid added to food to make it taste better and to vaccines to stabilize the active ingredients.  At the time I published this idea I had little scientific evidence to support it, more of a “hunch” than hard core science.  But over the last 5 years I have gathered enough published medical studies to validate a highly probable link between this excitotoxin and the Autism epidemic.

 

Suddenly the pieces of the puzzle began to take shape.  The studies I had gathered that showed people with ASD had larger brains and the ones that revealed an odd difference in white and gray brain matter made sense when glutamate was considered.  The main reason mercury has been pushed has been due to the abnormal deposits of it found in people with Autism.  But in studies mercury has always been shown to reduce the growth of the brain, not increase it.  Carol Hornlien, food scientist and creator of www.msgtruth.com revealed the reason:  High levels of MSG reduces the liver’s production of Cysteine.  This leads to a reduction in Glutathione which aids in the removal of heavy metals in the body.  With less Glutathione, the metals collect in the body.  High Mercury would then be a symptom of Autism, and not the cause. 

In spite of the lack of funding to explore the connection, recent studies have supported the possibility. Page and Daly et al in 2006 concluded that “Abnormalities in glutamate/glutamine may partially underpin the pathophysiology of autistic spectrum disorders.   Shinohe, Hashimoto et al in 2007 determined that their “study suggests that an abnormality in glutamatergic neurotransmission may play a role in the pathophysiology of autism.   Even in 2001 Glutamate was being scientifically connected with Autism.  Purcell, Jeon et al. concluded that “subjects with autism may have specific abnormalities in the AMPA-type glutamate receptors and glutamate transporters in the cerebellum. These abnormalities may be directly involved in the pathogenesis of the disorder.”

MSG

MSG in Vaccines

 MSG is found in vaccines and it is used as a stabilizer which is an ingredient to keep the virus alive. Essentially, all viral vaccines have free glutamic acid because it is used to feed the live virus. Stabilizers are also added to stabilize the vaccine against temperature variations or a freeze-drying process.

Since we already know the blood brain barrier is not fully developed in young children, to protect the brain against toxins that enter the blood, glutamic acid can penetrate the placental barrier.

 

 Vaccines that contain MSG are:

 

Varivax or otherwise known as the Chicken Pox vaccine. This vaccine contains L-monosodium glutamate and hydrolyzed gelatin.

 

Measles, Mumps, and Rubella (M-M-R) vaccine. The growth medium for Measles and Mumps contains amino acids and glutamate.  The medium for Rubella includes amino acids and hydrolyzed gelatin.  According to the package insert the reconstituted vaccine for subcutaneous administration includes hydrolyzed gelatin.

 

 M-R Vaccine (Measles and Rubella) contains hydrolyzed gelatin.
Attenuvax (Measles) hydrolyzed gelatin.

Biavax (Rubella) hydrolyzed gelatin.

JE-VAX (Japanese Encephalitis) gelatin.

Prevnar ( Pneumococcal– 7 Valent Conjugate Vaccine) soy protein, yeast.

YF-VAX (Yellow Fever ) gelatin.

 FluMist Vaccine (nasal) monosodium glutamate.

 

 Keep in mind that amino acids such as glutamic acid, aspartic acid, and L-cysteine are all neurotoxins.  All hydrolyzed proteins, such as the hydrolyzed gelatin, contain some processed free glutamic acid (MSG), aspartic acid, and L-cysteine. Gelatin and any ingredients that use ‘Hydrolyzed’ contain Glutamate.

  

Risks of FluMist Vaccine
By Dr. Sherri Tenpenny

 

“… The risk that the vaccine may contain contaminant avian retroviruses still remains. In addition, a stabilizing buffer containing potassium phosphate, sucrose (table sugar) and nearly 0.5 mg of monosodium glutamate (MSG) is added to each dose.

 

“One of the most troubling concerns over the injection of this “chemical soup” is the potential for the viruses to enter directly into the brain. At the top of the nasal passages is a paper-thin bone called the cribriform plate. The olfactory nerves pass through this bone and line the nasal passages, carrying messenger molecules to the brain that are identified as “smells” familiar to us. The olfactory tract has long been recognized as a direct pathway to the brain. Intranasal injection of certain viruses has resulted in a serious brain infection called encephalitis, presumably by direct infection of the olfactory neurons that carried the viruses to the brain. [19] Time will tell whether the live viruses in FluMist will become linked to cases of encephalitis.”
