He states:
At some point during that year, I became aware of MSG and its purported effects. I connected the dots immediately, and concluded that the food there must be full of MSG and that must be the problem.
. So he has no idea if that particular restaurant even used msg. He has no idea if any other ingredient caused his problem. He's grasping at a false myth he heard and insisting it must be true. Ignorance is winning here.
