People are surrounded by information flow through which can be transmitted not only true, but also false facts. Of course, to learn to distinguish truth from fraud, we can not, but to debunk a few myths, go ahead. Get ready to really wonder, informs Rus.Media.
Dangerous additive monosodium glutamate
This is one of the most popular dietary supplements. It is a yellowish or white crystalline powder like salt or sugar that dissolves well in water and is used as a flavor enhancer, which greatly irritates the taste buds of the person and helps to ensure that any food seems delicious to him.

If you want to try natural chips, then do them yourself, because in the store are already very difficult to find. Even in expensive chips composed of only 40% of potatoes, and all the rest is flour and starch. Now imagine how many additives in cheaper chips.
Warts from frogs
