    It can definately have the feel good effect and create addiction in some individuals depending on how it binds to the endorphin receptors in the brain, beta caesin peptides are also believed to have similar properties.

    Just because you get a feel good effect does not mean it is not doing any damage elswhere, I think of it like anesthetising you so you don't feel the pain as it tears up your insides, biological warfare.

    Good point - MSG packs a serious punch for many people. That stuff is awful. For me, grains/gluten AND MSG is a recipe for disaster - I go from mentally energized, a little shaky and bouncing off the walls to a bitchy, puffy, wheezy, foggy-brained little ray of sunshine.

    For me, Chinese food is the devil.
