Chronicles dangerous ingredients in your foods
Excitotoxins are substances added to foods and beverages that literally stimulates neurons to death, causing brain damage of varying degrees. They can be found in such ingredients as monosodium glutamate, aspartame (Nutrasweet®), cysteine, hydrolyzed protein, and aspartic acid. Dr. Blaylock's book describes what excitotoxins are, where they are found, and how they react in the body. Dr. Blaylock, a board-certified neurosurgeon, presents the latest research findings to demonstrate how exposure to excitotoxins will damage nerve cells in the brain. The use of aspartame, hydrolyzed vegetable protein, and monosodium glutamate in prepared foods and beverages continues to increase on a yearly basis. Dr. Blaylock clearly demonstrates that the neurotoxic potential of excitotoxins such as MSG and aspartame is so overwhelming that it can no longer be ignored. The message contained in this book is of particular importance to members of high-risk groups; the elderly, young children and those people at risk of or with a family history of neurodegenerative diseases.

Having said that, what you are rewarded with if you simply skim the book, which I did at first, is enough to change your eating habits forever.
When you've finished reading, you'll probably never completely trust another food producer ever again.
The FDA and our own uk food agency should be ashamed.
We have relied upon them to protect us and they only seem to have looked after large food producers.
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.
