The 4 Most Dangerous Toxins to Your Brain

If you had to name the toxins that posed the most danger to the human brain, what would you say? Would your guesses be some of the toxins that we find in our air, food, or water supply?

Probably, since they are all around us. While there are countless toxic compounds infiltrating our bodies and causing disease, there are 4 toxins which are especially prevalent and dangerous. This is both good news and bad, as they can likely be avoided.

These toxins can do horrific damage, but knowing about them and where to find them can save you from their wrath.

4. Monosodium Glutamate (MSG)

This is an additive found in processed foods. It’s known as an excitotoxin primarily used as a “flavor enhancer”. The problem, Henry says, is that the compound can damage the brain, potentially leading to things like Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s, and other long term ailments.

Additionally, a new study published in the Journal of Headache Pain reveals that just a single dose of monosodium glutamate (MSG) caused headaches in healthy subjects that were tested.

While some foods will list MSG outright on their labels, it’s one of those things that has multiple alternative names.

To avoid it, look for things like: yeast extract, soy sauce, soy protein, whey protein, textured protein, natrium glutamate, hydrolyzed protein, gelatin, autolyzed yeast, or any of the ingredients listed here.
