Achilles

Project Achilles studies the affect of MSG (monosodium glutamate, manufactured free glutamic acid) on the human body starting with the immune system.

"In Greek mythology, when Achilles was a baby, it was foretold that he would die young. To prevent his death, his mother Thetis took Achilles to the River Styx, which was supposed to offer powers of invulnerability, and dipped his body into the water. But as Thetis held Achilles by the heel, his heel was not washed over by the water of the magical river. Achilles grew up to be a man of war who survived many great battles. But one day, a poisonous arrow shot at him was lodged in his heel, killing him shortly there after." -- Achilles heel on wikipedia

For medical or nutritional advice, do not rely on this site. Please consult a dietician or health care professional instead.

admitted bias

This site has a bias, and there are few primary sources (like wikipedia and nih.gov). I'm working on it, and will accept constructive criticism regarding this project and this site.

Whitehouse Petition!

when I checked the link on 2017-jun-06, the whitehouse petition I made is a "white screen of death". considering the politics under #45, I am not going to pursue another petition at this time.

Project Goals

  • gather a statistically significant group with a Chinese Food Syndrome diagnosis (very difficult considering HIPAA in the U.S.).
  • lobby to improve labeling law enforcement for QSRs (Fast Food) and packaged foods (ref. hot dogs, cold cuts, frozen pizza, etc)
  • produce and distribute a field test kit which tests for the quantity of MSG (monosodium glutamate) in a wet or dry sample.
  • build, operate, and maintain an information system that tracks various processed food products regulated by the FDA. their UPC labels if available, and whether or not the item has MSG in it (determined via lab testing) and if MSG is on the label or, in the case of a QSR, in their nutrition guide.
  • conduct scientific tests to prove beyond a reasonable doubt that Talcum Powder and Cancer are not linked
  • test to find out how long MSG stays in the body (cumulative)
  • compare the chemistry of 'gluten', 'glutamate', and 'manufactured free glutamic acid'
  • find out the soluability of MSG.
