5.0 out of 5 stars Essential reading for health professionals
In his foreword George R Schwartz MD likens Blaylock's "Excitotoxins" book to Rachel Carson's pesticide expose of the 50's (Silent Spring), I fully endorse this reflection. Public opinion and now retailer awareness is getting into step with the facts and thoughts expressed in the pages of this book. In the UK, food retailer ASDA has removed Monosodium...

1.0 out of 5 stars Very weak science
I bought this book because it mentions cysteine as an "excitotoxin," which is very much in contrast to cysteine being recommended as a dietary supplement (antioxidant) by other sources. My concern was that the dietary supplement industry is pushing substances that more knowledgeable researchers have found to be harmful. The good news is that there is...

5.0 out of 5 stars Essential reading for health professionals, 20 Nov 1999
This review is from: Excitotoxins (Paperback)
In his foreword George R Schwartz MD likens Blaylock's "Excitotoxins" book to Rachel Carson's pesticide expose of the 50's (Silent Spring), I fully endorse this reflection. Public opinion and now retailer awareness is getting into step with the facts and thoughts expressed in the pages of this book. In the UK, food retailer ASDA has removed Monosodium Glutamate (MSG E621) from it's own brand crisps and Iceland Frozen Foods has excluded the artificial sweetener aspartame (E951) from it's own brand products - hopefully others will follow these examples. Government must commission a scientific investigation on the whole range of "Excitotoxins". As a co-ordinator for a pressure group working in the "Excitotoxin" arena I am becoming aware of an increasing number of people who feel their health has been adversely affected by "Excitotoxins". Blaylock's book is very clear and understandable and in my opinion it should be essential reading for nutritionists and health professionals throughout the world.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent, well researched reference., 31 May 1999
By A Customer
This review is from: Excitotoxins (Paperback)
As a former food process engineer, I found the information is accurate, scientific and frightening. Easy to understand for the novice, yet extremely thorough scientifically. Excellent, anyone one who eats should read this. It's that important.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excitotoxins can cause Alzheimer's, ALS, and Parkinson's, 21 Jan 1997
By A Customer
This review is from: Excitotoxins (Paperback)
Russell L. Blaylock, MD, has written "Excitoxins: The Taste that Kills," in which he explains that certain amino acids when overly abundant in the brain can cause neurons to die. Many biochemicals can act as neurotransmitters in the brain -- some excite our neurons; others calm them. In particular, glutamate (in MSG), aspartate (in NutraSweet), and cysteine are three amino acids that can overexcite our neurons and cause them to die. These amino acids are called EXCITOTOXINS. They are now added in large amounts to our food supply. From NOHA NEWS, Vol. XX, No. 1, Winter 1995

5.0 out of 5 stars Detailed information that doesn't "talk down" to a person., 30 Aug 1999
By A Customer
This review is from: Excitotoxins (Paperback)
Dr. Blaylock's sincere effort to provide the Excitotoxin sensitive person with accurate and detailed scientific information on the facts of MonoSodium Glutamate (MSG)and how it works; gives shocking facts about the dangers of MSG, with a vengance. The book does not "talk down" to people as other books about allergies and sensitivities often do. His information is always on the mark and clearly written. The Maryland Chapter of NO MSG strongly recommends "Excitotoxins: The Taste That Kills" to all of its members; new and old.

5.0 out of 5 stars Must Read For Every Intelligent American, 4 Mar 1998
By A Customer
This review is from: Excitotoxins (Paperback)
This is one of the most interesting and well-written books that I have read in a very long time. "Excitotoxins: The Taste That Kills" introduces the subject matter and lays a solid foundation for understanding by the uninformed. It strives for fairness in its handling of the subject matter, offering up where some information may not be yet conclusive. Its thoroughness and scholastic credibility are testified to by more than 500 scientific references in its less than 300 pages of text. If every intelligent American were to read this book this year, the new millenium would be entered by a decidedly healthier populous, with drastically descending health care costs, a subsequently immediate boon to the economy, and an overall dramatically increased standard of living and quality of life.

5.0 out of 5 stars This book should jar the reasonably sane mind to action., 4 Mar 1999
By A Customer
This review is from: Excitotoxins (Paperback)
This book illuminates the dangers of our S.A.D (standard American diet) and the reckless and irresponsable and even murderous additions of additives to our food supply by the food processing and food service industry. Every man woman and child beware and act on your own behalf. As a child neurodevelopment specialist I am seeing hundreds of local children who's brains and psyche are injured and who are being labeled with disease names that bring no remediation of symptoms or treatment of causes. This book is only a start!

5.0 out of 5 stars In Response to USA reader and his trust in FDA, 5 Sep 1999
By A Customer
This review is from: Excitotoxins (Paperback)
Dr. Blaylock is a neurosurgeon and is well versed in physiology. If you don't like what you read in this book, check out any website on aspartame and you will see its use is highly correlated to lupus, MS and other autoimmune diseases which used to be considered rare. And why in the world would any person with a brain trust the FDA? This is the organization that gave us thalidomide babies, addicted millions of people to valium, and approved Phen-Fen. Get your head out of the sand.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great book - real eye opener, 15 Oct 2013
By 
S. D. Seedell - See all my reviews
(REAL NAME)   
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This book is awesome. It starts off with a breakdown of how the brain works and it is obvious the author is an expert in this area. He has been a neurosurgeon for 30 years and a professor of neurology at more than one university. In addition he has written books and several peer-reviewed papers for journals. The fact that some don't find him credible is beyond me.

The rest of the book covers toxins that affect the brain and it is great reading. The worst bit is that most food companies are aware of the dangers from their additives but are able to meander the rules by renaming ingredients. The corporate-owned governing bodies do not care either. Worth a read if you care about the brains of yourselves and your family.

5.0 out of 5 stars I wish they taught us this a school!, 3 Aug 2009
This review is from: Excitotoxins (Paperback)
I run in Dr.Blaylock on a dutch msg homepage, there were 4 vids of the 700 club. Then I video.googled the guy and I landed in his speach about msg. I was speechless...................
I'am A similac baby(o yes with msg even when I wrote this), always had problems with my obesity and intestines.
I already found out out that it was not a diet problem but a hypothalamus problem. (after a useless lapband adventure)
And since msg works bad on your hypothalamus, on the food and being satisfied centre, thing started to make sence. So I quit every form of an excitotoxin.
This is almost a year ago.
I only wished he did go deeper in on the detox of excitotoxines, but magnisium and taurinefound that in:Health and Nutrition Secrets That Can Save Your Life: Harness Your Body's Natural Healing Powers, because i'm still working on a recovering of the function of my intestines.
It is getting better and better but it takes time.
And I lost without any diet 17kg!!!!
Hope this will continue after I've corrected my different throid medication problem.
Eating no more excitotoxins means you have to cook more yourself.
Do not forget cosmetics, there is a lot of poison in that to you absorb through your skin.
Trust me it is worth it. Get the book.
