Food For Thought / How Fattening Are Cookbook Recipes?

A pair of researchers from Cornell University are now warning the "Joy of Cooking" cookbook has been packing on the calories in 17 of its classic recipes. They found that changes in serving sizes have led to a 63-percent increase in calories per serving in all but one of those recipes. FLN's Sherri Watters weighs in on the study.

I'm looking for the information on MSG that was talked about this morning...Tuesday, March 11th, 2014. I hope there's a link for it somewhere and I'd appreciate being able to have a page I could print off if possible, with the different names that were mentioned for MSG, as well as the whole broadcast if available.
Thank you~!
