THIS! I thought I was the only kid who "hit" the Accent shaker.

I get a much milder version of the symptoms you describe. Never affected my vision, but ears buzz and whole body feels warm. It's not absolutely horrible, but why invite trouble?

Thatís how it works- it changes the way your brain operates so that flavors are enhanced. I wonder how that could be a good thing.

Those are troubling side effects that I don't get but they still make me limit my intake and I don't add it to food. I feel the same way about grapefruit because of all the drug interactions, even though I'm not on drugs. I do eat peanuts because they're supposed to be healthy but I wonder what's up with people who are severely allergic to them and whether my health is affected to a lesser extent. I may switch to walnuts.

I have a friend who is deathly allergic to fish and another who gets violently ill when she eats garlic. And then there are people who hate the cilantro, saying it tastes like soap. The cilantro thing has been proven to be genetic, and research is finding genetic clues in people with peanut allergies. It'd seem that food allergies would indeed have a genetic cause, but yeah, you gotta wonder - are food allergies spectrum issues that can cause subtle problems in seemingly asymptomatic people?

Take care with the walnuts, they are high in glutamates!
