MSG and Blindness

Researchers are beginning to suspect that MSG in food may play a role in blindness.   See our page on MSG and Myopia.

According to the latest research, glaucoma and Alzheimer's have Beta Amyloid protein in common:

Unfortunately, Beta Amyloid protein makes neurons in the body less able to withstand excitotoxicity of glutamate and asparate.

And so - having the disease Glaucoma or Alzheimer's or both makes one MORE susceptible to the effects of MSG and aspartame.  Something to think about when you are a care-giver to a family member with either of these diseases.
