Are BPA-free canned food safe to eat?

Not necessarily: While BPA is hazardous because of its hormone-disrupting estrogenic effects, the problem is that cans without BPA use alternatives like BPF, BPS, vinyl and polyester that may be as or more toxic than BPA and it is hard to learn what alternatives are being used!

I am 7 weeks pregnant & I was wondering if it is safe to eat chicken lo mein with msg in it?

Less MSG, better: I don't believe there is a big risk of msg in regard to pregnancy, but generally the less chemicals you put in your body the better especially when you are in early pregnancy. It is regarded as safe by the fda, but i would minimize consumption, especially during the first 12 weeks of pregnancy. Good luck and congratulations! ...Read more

Am 16 weeks pregnant and I love chineese food. Is it ok to have it once in a while? Will the MSG in chineese food affect baby development?

I think you're fine: The better Chinese restaurants do not add this flavor enhancer. Monosodium glutamate is the sodium salt of one of the most common building blocks of your own body, and the "pop" notion that it is horrible for you has resisted scientific demonstration. Congratulations on your pregnancy; this would be a great time to generally eat well and manage your weight. Best wishes. ...Read more

Is it safe to have msg in diet? What are possible issues?

Is it safe to have msg in diet?  What are possible issues?

A little bit is ok: If one is not allergic to msg, nor has bad reactions to it, then a little msg is ok. It is in many foods, so people often don't know it's there. It is not necessary to be in foods, so one can read all the labels (and buy american-made, american-labeled foods, as some foreign foods have inaccurate labels) and choose no-msg types of foods. The "s" in msg is sodium, which we get too much of already. ...Read more

I suddenly get lots of shimmering wiggly lines in vision when i eat foods with wheat or msg, even a small amount does it.Allergy or seizure trigger?

Migraine aura: Monosodium glutamate (msg) is a very common migraine trigger. Gluten can be a trigger for people with intolerance to wheat, barley, etc. A normal eeg is only 70% sensitive/ likely to pick epileptiform abnormalities; nonetheless, seeing wiggly lines soon after eating food triggers is very characteristic of migraine aura. A neurologist can help track your triggers and treat migraines. Good luck! ...Read more
