"Effect of monosodium glutamate on oxidative stress and apoptosis in rat thymus....It has been demonstrated that administration of high concentrations of monosodium glutamate (MSG), induce oxidative stress in different organs, but not in thymus...Obtained results showed that MSG treatment induced oxidative stress in thymus, which may have an important role in thymocyte apoptosis induced by MSG..."

"...several studies in animals have shown that MSG is toxic to the various organs such as the liver, brain, thymus, and kidneys...Published data indicate that renal fibrosis is associated with the chronic consumption of MSG and oxidative stress is the main cause of kidney injury...Oxidative stress is caused by the excessive production or a decreased elimination of free radicals in cells...During the last decade it became apparent that the chronic intake of MSG has potential effects on the peripheral organs such as the kidneys..."
