    " Oh my gosh! This is the hardest book I ever read ... ever! But it was so worth it. I will never look at food the same way again. This book exposes the truth about MSG (Monosodium Glutemate) and I'll never eat anything with it again! A MUST read! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Martha Smith | 1/10/2013

    " I realize, excitotoxins and neurotoxins are not hot topics for most. But I really enjoyed this book. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kelly | 10/9/2011

    " This book is full of medical jargon and difficult to read. The purpose is more to inform medical practitioners of the dangers about excitotoxins than it is to provide information on how to recover from exposure. Advice seems to be that it is just best to avoid them. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Laura | 9/13/2011

    " Love this book, even though it is a bit scientific and 'dry'. I am allergic to MSG and am working my way out of a major sugar/sweets addiction, so it's handy information so that I can make some other changes alongside drastically cutting down on sweets. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lynda | 1/14/2011

    " Total research book. After I read it I stopped buying certain foods because it scared me so much. Now that a couple of years have passed I've relaxed but still buy organic milk and don't buy cheesy covered chips (loaded with msg) for the house, except for parties. "
