    yep~ msg adds a lot of flavour to your food..but too much of it is not good..it makes you very thirsty..so you need to be sure you are drinking enough water..too much of it also contributes to hair loss..but i'm not sure if it makes one retain water though..bump!

    Hum never realy thought about it. I usualy eat such ammounts when eating china food that I get slugish and naseous just from that, so I might have misstaken any light headedness with that.

    it ist used as like salt or something and sprinkled on the food while eating? or do they put it in the food while preparing it?

    MSG is horrible and horrible for your body!!

    I get extreme headaches from MSG, which is why when I cheat and order Chinese once in a blue moon, it's ordered w/NO MSG. I tell the restaurant owners that I get seizures if I ingest it in order to make D*MN sure they don't put that sh*t in my food.

    The food tastes soooooooooooooooooo much cleaner, u can actually taste the OTHER items in the food, it doesn't all taste the SAME.
