Infertility and MSG

This study was done in 2020 to try and discover if rats, who had been given doses of MSG for the purpose of lowering testosterone levels and causing “toxicity in testicular tissue,” could be treated with zinc oxide nanoparticles and green tea. The group treated with zinc oxide nanoparticles/green tea were “significantly” protected against MSG damage to the testis.

From the study: “The MSG treatment in the adult male rats reduced testosterone levels and disrupted testicular histology…”

Good to know, but wouldn’t it be better to avoid MSG ingestion in the first place than to search out an antidote?
