I am way freaking allergic to MSG in all its many forms. I'm so allergic, I can't walk thru the food court in a mall without having some form of reaction.
Eating anything but fresh foods is a very scary thing.
I'm allergic to most of the lettuce in the market because of the things they spray on it. If I buy vegtables, I wash them off and then only eat a small portion to see if I am going to have an allergy reaction.
I'm really disapointed that the food industry is so lax that they will allow
MSG to be listed under "Natural Flavors"
If you are tremendously allergic, I would like to hear from you.

  • Hello! I am here- extremely allergic. I had to throw out 100% if my cosmetics, shampoo, creams, designer perfumes, etc.I had to roll half of all my clothes, pillows, rugs, bedding, sweaters, etc in bags and put them in the closet, because just to smell them give me palpitation and thirst.Antibiotics, synthetic food additives, vaccines, and bugs I caught made my neural system freak out about common things. I could have been placed in a mental institution if I did not have the IQ I have.I am undergoing treatment to reduce reaction and to actually ELIMINATE allergies forever. It is called NAET- it was discovered by some super smart lady who grew up eating rice and broccoli. She was too allergic to food. Her name is Dr. Devi Nambudripad. Go to her website, and find a person who practices NAET in your area.I am slowly, slowly getting my life back.Just to give you an idea:I am allergic and become debilitated in contact with polyester, mercury, pesticide in water and fruit, sugar, corn, beef, new furniture, ink from books,all medicines I have tried etc.I'll be around to give you support and more info on allergies.Take Care.Eatafruit78.

  • Thanks for your message. My heart goes out to you. I look at my allergies as an inconvienience even tho it gets life threatening at times. I've had people say "I couldn't live like that" and I tell them yes you could because that's just the way life is. I have a lais-sez-fair(?) attitude about things. I just take care of business and try to get thru the best I can. I have days where I just don't give a ***n, especially when I wake up in the morning with a bad case of hives and I don't have a clue what caused them. I've been run thru the ringer quite a few times, IE, I've had so many near death experiences, sometimes it like, OH GOD, am I gonna die! Other times it's like a bother, said with disgust, Ah man, am I gonna die? Sometimes I wish I could just lay down and go into the big sleep. I hope that's what it is. As far as God is concerned, I think he's an evil persona. I don't have any faith in his benolevence. If we on earth are his favored children, I'd hate to see the other side. When I die, I just want to disolve, I don't trust God in this life and I sure don't want to have to trust him in the next life. I know there were people with allergies much worse than mine, thanks for sharing your story with me. I jokingly refer to myself as bubbleboy. I haven't checked out the website you mentioned, but I will be checking it out shortly. Sorry it took so long to get back with you, I forgot my password and login, DUH! I hope to hear from you again, Sincerely, Waycool Jr
