Editorial Reviews

Booknews
Primarily for the lay public, but also for those trained in medical science and biology, neurosurgeon Blaylock releases a well-researched bombshell--that excitotoxins, substances added to food and beverages and including glutamate (MSG) and aspartate (NutraSweet), damage nerve cells in the brain, and are particularly dangerous to the elderly, children, and those at high risk of neurodegenerative diseases. Must have the food industry flacks working overtime. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)

Blaylock exposes the dangers of artifical sweetners and MSG as well as other neurotoxins which he links to Alzheimers, Parkinsons, ALS and other degenerative brain diseases. He also exposes the complacency of the FDA. From numerous double blind studies over many years, Blaylock methodically reveals the scientific pathways of neuron destruction which lead to disease. He has done his homework.

If you suffer from reactions to foods or drinks, but your physician can not determine the cause, read this book. Blaylock explorers the neurogenic response to allergins.
