Why Chinese Food May Be Worse Than McDonald’s

Many items on a typical Chinese food restaurant menu are more than 1,000 calories. That’s half your caloric intake per day in just one meal. According to a recently published study, MSG (monosodium glutamate), a flavor enhancer most often associated with Chinese food, may also contribute to weight gain. The study measured the dietary MSG intake of 10,095 Chinese adults in order to determine if there was an association between MSG intake and obesity. The study found that participants who consumed the most MSG were 28 percent more likely to be overweight compared to those who consumed the least amount of MSG.

It is not entirely clear why higher consumption of MSG is associated with weight gain. However, the authors suspect that over time MSG intake prevents brain cells from responding to leptin. Leptin is a hormone that suppresses appetite and when brain cells no longer respond to it, this may lead to excess energy intake and weight gain. Need another reason to cut back on the MSG in your diet? Recent research suggests MSG may trigger headaches.

At this time however, there is no definitive proof that MSG causes weight gain or any other adverse effect. The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) considers it “Generally Recognized As Safe” (GRAS). As a food additive and flavor enhancer, you will probably find MSG mostly in flavored processed foods, such as snack foods and soups. So check the ingredients list when you shop and try to cut back on the processed foods you eat.

hehe dunes were awesome :P

I am not surprised with that info on Chinese food really. Most of the time I don't think it's worth the money since you can make it taste so much better if you do it yourself :3 and then you also know what's in it ;x
