***THIS IS A PUBLIC SERVICE ANNOUNCEMENT***

According to an MD acquaintance of mine, the over consumption of Free Glutamic Acid has been linked to damage of the cochlea and auditory nerves and is an aggravating factor in the development of tinnitus. It is also linked to the development of ALS and Alzheimer's Disease as well as cardiac dysrhythmia and digestive tract issues.

Free Glutamic Acid is the business end of MSG and is added to processed food products to make them taste more flavorful. It is also found in processed food ingredients including hydrolyzed and autolyzed yeast, soy, vegetable, and grain proteins, and many so-called "natural flavors".

The website http://www.truthinlabeling.org is a good starting place if you want to learn more about Free Glutamic Acid and it's effects on your health.

I've been rather restrictive ever since their live album.

maybe

but probably only because of the potential for too much sodium to increase a risk of hypertension.

and even that...
