    Recent studies have shown that allergies stemming from the intake of MSG can cause birth defects, and numbness of limbs. MSG consumption has been linked to Fibromyalgia syndrome and its related symptoms (including tenderness and pain at trigger point sites, fatigue, sleep disorders, and irritable bowel syndrome).

    I guess the good effects of it are that it makes food taste better(supposedly). bad effects are numerous. i know some people that have a horrible allergy to it. I get terrible throbbing headaches if i eat too much food that contains it.
