Marmite is disgusting is what it is. I think it's made of marsupial varmintesWhats a marmite?

Some people experience numbness or tingling in the extremities, headaches, abdominal cramps or worse. I promptly go into anaphylactic shock and I nearly died in the emergency room of a local hospital because the ER doc didn't believe that MSG could be such a serious problem, and she withheld epinephrine though I begged for it (as much as I could in my condition). By the time my BP got down to about 25 over 15, the ER nurses were hollering at her and she administered epinephrine. That's when I went into convulsions and the doctor and two nurses had to enlist the aid of another person to hold me down. When I woke up hours later, I felt like someone had beaten every inch of my body with a baseball bat. When someone is "passed out" and unresponsive, do not holler "we're losing him" unless you intend for the patient to know their state. I remember most of that afternoon, including the arguments and the panic in the ER.cyrusabdollahi said:What is 'MSG syndrome'?
It's not a typical allergy - more like a severe toxic reaction. And I have Native American blood from both sides of my family and probably have more genetic material in common with Asians than most of the US population.cyrusabdollahi said:Are you sure you don't have an allergic reaction to MSG? Most of asia uses MSG in almost all of their food and as far as I am aware, there all fine.
Millions can eat shellfish, peanuts, etc, or be stung by a bee without adverse reactions, too. Others experience anaphylactic shock and die if they are not treated. Remember, I warned that if people had previously experienced adverse reactions to Chinese food, do not experiment with these spreads because they contain high levels of glutamates. Nowhere did I say these spreads are poisonous, dangerous, etc, but to a subset of people they will cause reactions, and to a smaller subset, they can cause life-threatening reactions.cyrusabdollahi said:But what I am saying is that its not a toxic substance. Millions use it everyday with no complications. For some reason, your body can't process it; but, I don't think its dangerous.
