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)
