Association Between Stress And Monosodium Glutamate On Consumption Of Fast Foods Among South Indian Population-A Survey

Author: S.RAGUL PRASATH, KARTHIK GANESH MOHANRAJ, JOTHI PRIYA. A
Abstract: Stress is a feeling of a physical tension and the body’s way of responding to any kind of demand or threat. The stress response is the body’s way of protecting you. In emergency situations, stress can save your life. Stress causes an increased heart beat due to release of steroid hormones and corticosteroids.Monosodium glutamate (MSG) is an umami substance and is widely used in flavour enhancement in food. Previously done studies have associated MSG administration with hepatotoxicity, cardiotoxicity, neurotoxicity, low grade inflammation, metabolic disarray and premalignant alterations, along with behavioral changes. MSG acts on the glutamate receptors and releases neurotransmitters which play a vital role in normal physiological as well as pathological processes. The aim of this study is to associate between stress and MSG consumption of fast foods among the population by a survey. A self-structured questionnaire containing 10 questions was prepared covering the socio-demographic, information, attitude, knowledge and perception. The survey was circulated among the participants using the google forms link. Surveys conducted were in the age group of 18- 40 years.In our Study 75.5% were Male and 24:5% females participated actively, 45.5% of the population says that they suffer digestion based problems after eating fast foods. 59:8 % of the population answered that they sleep deeply after eating fast foods without any discomfort. 62.7% of the population said that they consume fast-food often. Conclusion of the study is that the stress and MSG consumption through fast foods are directly connected. Also it causes psychological changes, decreased sleep, changes in sleep cycle and also related digestion based problems. Hence, we conclude that prolonged MSG consumption may be harmful for health and may lead to its addictive consumption.
