Sodium Nitrite Vs Msg
Comprised of nitrogen & 2 oxygen molecules. Sodium nitrite is used in meat industry to prevent bacterial growth & to maintain the meat's red color (≥ 22mg/kg body weight is toxic); cooking at high heat allows nitrites to combine with Amino Acids to form nitros-amines (carcinogens). It can be converted by many pathways to nitric oxide, a potent vaso-dilator. Amyl nitrite can be ...Read more

SMG and sodium causes salt and fluid retention, high blood pressure and heart failure with palpitations. Nitrates cause asthma and allergies in some. I'm not aware of fat causing immediate palpitations. ...Read more

Vice versa also indicates UTI and if alone nitrite is pos it is still a strong predictor of uti. In all circumstances clinical signs and symptoms are imp. ...Read more
Don't know why: Monosodium glutamate (msg) can be neurotoxic because of it's resemblence to a natural exitatory neurotransmitter called glutatmate.

Blamming bad, or good, behavior on a single molecule not reliable, though some (Etoh/Opiods/statins/PCN) can powerfully change behavior.
