味精(MSG)是否安全?/ Is MSG safe?

味精(MSG)是否安全?

(原创于:www.eliaus.com   博主微信:us20120514)

味精是我们都非常熟悉的普通食品添加剂。 有些人说味精对身体有害,也有人说它是绝对安全和无害的,即使美国FDA(食品和药物管理局)把它视为GRAS(一般被认为是安全的)。 那么味精真的很安全吗?

Is MSG safe?

A common food additive that we all know too well is MSG.  Some people say it is bad for you while others say that it is completely safe and harmless even the FDA (Food and Drug Administration) of the United States considers it as GRAS (Generally Recognized As Safe).  So is MSG really safe? 

那么,让我们从味精出现在食品标签上的不同名字开始吧。

•味精(谷氨酸钠)
•自动酵母
•水解蛋白
•水解植物蛋白
•酪蛋白酸钠
•酵母营养
• 酵母抽提物
•组织化蛋白质
•酵母球
•谷氨酸盐
• 谷氨酸(麸氨酸)

即使没有显示在标签上,通常可以在以下里面找到味精

•香料/调味剂
•调味品
•天然香料/天然调味料
•天然猪肉香精
•天然牛肉调味料
•天然鸡肉调味料
• 酱油
•大豆分离蛋白
•大豆蛋白
•肉羹
• 原汁
• 肉汤
麦芽提取物
•麦芽调味
•麦芽
•任何改性酶
•卡拉胶(角叉菜胶)
•麦芽糊精
•果胶
• 玉米淀粉
• 玉米油
•任何超级巴氏杀菌

在中国北方和中国南方进行的一项研究中,与他们饮食中食用多少味精做比较。该研究得出结论认为,吃的味精越多就越有可能超重。在动物研究中,MSG可以在大脑下丘脑内产生损伤(受损斑点),并引起瘦素抵抗。

下丘脑在控制以下方面非常重要

• 体温
•口渴
•食欲和体重控制
•情绪
•睡眠周期(障碍休眠)
•性行为(有性生殖困难)
•母乳(分泌母乳,起始和开始生产母乳)
•血压和心率
•生产消化液
•平衡体液
•甲状腺(调节代谢,能量水平,发育成长的儿童和成人)

Well, let’s start with the different names that MSG appears as on food labels.

  • Msg (Monosodium glutamate)
  • Autolyzed yeast
  • Hydrolyzed protein
  • Hydrolyzed vegetable protein
  • Sodium caseinate
  • Yeast nutrient
  • Yeast extract
  • Textured Protein
  • Torulo yeast
  • Glutamate
  • Glutamic acid

Even though it is not labeled, MSG can usually be found in 

  • Flavors/Flavorings
  • Seasonings
  • Natural Flavors/Natural Flavorings
  • Natural Pork Flavoring
  • Natural Beef Flavoring
  • Natural Chicken Flavoring
  • Soy Sauce
  • Soy Protein Isolate
  • Soy Protein
  • Bouillon
  • Stock
  • Broth
  • Malt Extract
  • Malt Flavoring
  • Barley Malt
  • Anything Enzyme Modified
  • Carrageenan
  • Maltodextrin
  • Pectin
  • Corn Starch
  • Corn Oil
  • Anything Ultra-Pasteurized

In a study conducted in North and South china, people where compared on how much MSG they had in their diet. The study concluded that the more people ate MSG the more likely they would be overweight. In animal studies, MSG can create lesions (a damaged spot) in the hypothalamus within the brain as well as cause leptin resistance.

The hypothalamus is important in controlling 

  • Body Temperature
  • Thirst
  • Appetite and weight control
  • Emotions
  • Sleep cycles (trouble sleeping)
  • Sex drive (difficulty with sexual reproduction)
  • Breast milk (releasing breast milk, starting and starting production of breast milk)
  • Blood pressure and heart rate
  • Production of digestive juices
  • Balancing bodily fluids
  • Thyroid (regulates metabolism, energy levels, developmental growth children and adults)

瘦素是脂肪细胞中产生的激素。当瘦素水平高时,他们会告诉大脑少吃,并燃烧更多的能量。当瘦素水平低时,他们告诉大脑吃更多(认为身体挨饿)并节约能量。所以,当某人瘦素抵抗时,大脑对瘦素没有适当的反应,认为身体瘦素水平低。因此大脑认为这个人正在挨饿,从而使他们吃更多,导致增加体重。瘦素与大脑的下丘脑交流。现在,如果味精损害了这部分大脑,那么你认为会发生什么事?大脑可能认为它是挨饿的,不会适当地对瘦素反应。

消费味精的一些症状特别是不能容忍的包括

•颈背部,前臂和胸部有灼热感
•颈背部有麻木,辐射到手臂和背部
•面部,太阳穴,上背,颈部和手臂刺痛,温热无力

•胸痛
•头痛
•恶心
•心跳加快
•味精不耐受哮喘患者的支气管痉挛(呼吸困难)
•嗜睡
•虚弱

Leptin is a hormone produced in fat cells.  When leptin levels are high they tell the brain to eat less and to burn more energy.  When leptin levels are low they tell the brain to eat more (the thinks the body is starving) and to conserve energy.  So, when someone is leptin resistant, the brain does not respond to leptin properly thinking that the body has low leptin levels.  This in turns makes the brain think that the person is starting thus making them eat more and gain weight.  Leptin communicates with the hypothalamus of the brain.  Now, if MSG damages this part of the brain then what do you think happens?  The brain may think it is starving and will not respond to leptin properly.

Some symptoms of MSG consumption especially if intolerant include

  • Burning sensation in the back of the neck, forearms and chest
  • Numbness in the back of the neck, radiating to the arms and back
  • Tingling, warmth and weakness in the face, temples, upper back, neck and arms
  • Chest pain
  • Headache
  • Nausea
  • Rapid heartbeat
  • Bronchospasm (difficulty breathing) in MSG-intolerant people with asthma
  • Drowsiness
  • Weakness

味精通过令脑细胞兴奋死亡而导致其损伤。 在一定程度上(不完全),镁,适当形式的维生素C和维生素E可以保护大脑免受如:神经毒素味精造成的危险。 此外,未经已经显示穿过胎盘并影响子宫中发育中的胎儿的大脑。味精多年来对脑部的进一步损伤也可能是发展肌萎缩性侧索硬化症,帕金森病和阿尔茨海默病的人群中的一种致病因子。

那么为什么会添加到食物? 如你所知,味精增加了食物的味道和香气。 这对于公司来说非常棒,因为它们使食物更加美味可口,让人们不断回来。 这对于公司和餐馆来说有助于出售自己的产品和增加业务是个好消息。
如您所见,味精会导致许多健康问题,并损害大脑。 那么为什么我们没有看到它被禁止?

MSG causes its damage by exciting brain cells to death.  To an extent (not completely), magnesium, the proper forms of vitamin C and vitamin E can protect the brain from dangerous neurotoxins such as MSG.  Additionally, MSG has been shown to cross the placenta and affect the brain of the developing child in the womb.  The progressive damage to the brain by MSG over many years can also be one of the causative agents in people who develop Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis, Parkinson’s, and Alzheimer’s.

So, why is it added to food?  As you know, MSG increases the flavor and aroma of food.  This is great for companies as it makes their food more desirable and tasty, so that people keep coming back for more.  This is great news for companies and restaurants to help sell their products and increase business.   

As you can see, MSG causes many health problems and damages the brain.  So, why have we not seen it banned?

 

原因在于,谷氨酸工业(那些对味精有经济利益以提高利润的人)在1977年创建了名为国际谷氨酸技术委员会(IGTC)和谷氨酸协会(TGA)的非营利组织。IGTC是研究味精的行业组织。 IGTC以研究资助的形式花钱,使科学家和机构进行促进味精作为人类消费安全的研究。 虽然国际食品信息委员会(IFIC),往往资助不同的卫生机构,主要由食品工业与TGA一起资助,但向公众宣传,味精对人类来说是安全的,

正如你所看到的,在我们生活的世界里,味精不会很快消失。 因此,由你掌握自己的手,保护家人和亲人的健康,

那么,你还在吃美味的味精吗?

The reason lies in that the glutamate industry (those who have a financial interest in MSG to boost their profit) created the nonprofit organization called International Glutamate Technical Committee (IGTC) and The Glutamate Association (TGA) back in 1977.  The IGTC is the research organization for the MSG industry.  The IGTC spends money in the form of research grants getting scientists and institutions to conduct studies which promote MSG as being safe for human consumption.  While The International Food Information Council (IFIC) which is primarily funded by the food industry along with TGA promote to the public that MSG is safe for humans often funding different health organizations.

As you can see, in the world we live in, MSG won’t disappear any time soon.  Therefore, it is up to you to take matters into your own hands and protect the health of your family and loved ones.

So, are you still eating that tasty MSG?

  • Sugary foods
  • Carbonated drinks (mineral water, soda)

这些习惯可以帮助你保住你的牙齿



•在牙医的指引下每年至少进行两次牙科检查和牙齿清洁
•习惯性刷牙(每天3次 - >吃饭前或饭后至少30分钟)
•每日使用牙线清洁牙缝
•服用专门针对口腔的益生菌
•如果您有疼痛((嘴巴,脸部,颈部肿胀),牙龈松动,牙龈出血,咀嚼或吞咽困难,口干燥,下颚疼痛,持续时间超过一周的口腔疼痛,请去看牙医)
•舌刮
•每3个月更换牙刷
•使用油拨法(椰子油最佳)

Habits that can help you keep your teeth

  • Brushing teeth regularly (3 times daily->before you eat or at least 30 minutes after you eat)
  • Flossing daily
  • Consume probiotics specifically for the mouth
  • Visit the dentist if you have pain ((swelling in your mouth, face, neck), puffy/bleeding gums, difficulty chewing or swallowing, dry mouth, jaw pain, mouth sore that lasts longer than a week)
  • Tongue scraping
  • Replace your toothbrush every 3 months
  • Oil pulling (Coconut Oil)

如何进行油拨


1)早上,在刷牙或喝任何东西之前
2)用1汤匙的椰子油(15ml),含在嘴里,牙齿之间,轻轻地漱口10至20分钟,以避免使口腔或下颚酸痛。
3)把油吐出垃圾中,因为你不想堵塞排水管,然后用温暖的盐水冲洗口腔。
4)刷牙


一般来说,初始效果需要一周的时间,持续一个多月或更长的时间可见显著效果。 油拔应每隔一天进行一次。 非常棒的事情是,它不会像一般的漱口水那样令口腔干燥。 椰子油有许多其他有益用途,我们将在以后的文章中讨论。


油拔有助于


•帮助抵抗蛀牙
•美白牙齿
•有助于避免牙齿空腔(减少导致牙齿空腔的细菌)
•加强牙龈和下颚
•减少口腔炎症
•有助于牙龈出血

How to oil pull

  1. Oil pull first thing in the morning before you brush your teeth or drink anything
  2. Swish gently to avoid a sore mouth or jaw with 1 tablespoon of coconut oil (15ml) in your mouth and between your teeth for 10 to 20 minutes.
  3. Spit out the oil in the trash as you don’t want to clog up the drain then rinse your mouth out with warm salty water.
  4. Brush your teeth.

Generally, it takes a week for initial effects and a month or more for long lasting effects. Oil pulling should be done every other day. A great thing is that it does not dry out your mouth like certain mouthwashes. Coconut oil has many other beneficial uses which we will discuss in future articles.

Oil pulling helps with

  • Help fight tooth decay
  • Whitens teeth
  • Helps avoid cavities (reduces bacteria that causes cavities)
  • Strengthens gums and jaw
  • Reduces inflammation in the mouth
  • Helps with bleeding gums

牙齿健康状况不佳会增加以下风险


1)肺炎等呼吸状况

“牙周病学杂志”发表的研究表明,口腔健康状况差可能会增加肺炎,急性支气管炎和慢性阻塞性肺疾病等呼吸道感染的风险,因为靠近口腔的上喉部的细菌可能被吸入肺部。坏细菌也可以通过血液进入肺部。

2)心血管疾病(心脏病发作,中风,动脉粥样硬化)
3)细菌性心内膜炎(感染心脏)
4)早产和低出生体重
5)勃起功能障碍
6)引起某些种类的癌症(肾,胰,血)
7)消化问题
8)严重的牙齿感染(一些口腔如果不治疗可以致死,因为危险的细菌蔓延到你的血液中导致全身感染)


所以,正如你所看到的,有一个健康的口腔意味着不仅仅是牙齿看起来好看和有着干净的牙齿而已。每天花费几分钟,真的可以改善你的健康。


那么,你的牙齿健康怎么样?

Poor dental health increases the risk of

  1. Pneumonia and other respiratory conditions

Research published in the Journal of Periodontology suggests that poor oral health may increase the risk of respiratory infections such as pneumonia, acute bronchitis, and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease as bacteria from the upper throat which is close to the mouth can be inhaled into the lungs. Bad bacteria can also access the lungs via the blood.

2. Cardiovascular disease (heart attacks, strokes, atherosclerosis)

3. Bacterial endocarditis (Infection of the heart)

4. Preterm birth and low birth weight

5. Erectile Dysfunction

6. Developing certain kinds of cancers (kidney, pancreatic, blood)

7. Digestive problems

8. Serious dental infection (some if not treated can kill you as the dangerous bacteria spreads into your bloodstream causing a systemic infection)

So, as you can see having a healthy mouth can mean much more than having good looking and clean teeth. Just spending a few minutes every day can really improve your health.

So, how’s your dental health?
