Excitotoxin what are they?

 Well let me ask you a different question, “If someone were to tell you that chemicals added to the food could cause brain damage in your children, and these chemicals could effect how your children’s nervous system formed during development so that in latter years they may have learning or emotional difficulties?  What if there was scientific evidence that these chemicals could damage a critical part of the brain known to control hormones so that later in life your child might have endocrine problems? How would you feel?”  Well this is exactly what Dr. Robert Blaylock MD states in his book,

Dr. Blaylock states in his book “that these Excitotoxins are a group of compounds and they play a critical role in the development of numerous neurological disorders including migraines, seizures, infections, abnormal neural development, certain endocrine disorders, neuropsychiatric disorders, learning disorders in children, AIDS dementia, episodic violence, lyme borreliosis, hepatic encephalopathy, specific types of obesity, and especially the neurodegenerative diseases, such as ALS, Parkinson's disease, Alzheimer's disease, Huntington's disease, and olivopontocerebellar degeneration.”


Dr Blalock explains how these excitotoxins pass through the blood-brain barrier and excite the Neurons in our brain to death. After reading this book, I was very concerned that powerful brain toxins were being put in my family’s food and drink slowly killing us, in other words each meal could easily be layered with toxins just to boost sales.

Reading labels became a must! The goal was to eliminate as much of these toxins from my kitchen as a whole, then teach my family to identify safe products.  The list below is a great place to start. Don’t be fooled by the cute fluff code words that are disguised as friendly and or healthy, They are really chemical compounds (excitotoxins) in disguise. This is what happens when we leave food safty to the Food Industry and the FDA
