Chinese restaurant syndrome

A group of transient symptoms that some persons report after eating at restaurants that add monosodium glutamate (MSG) to some of their recipes. The syndrome may be a valid clinical condition, but it has not been proven that MSG is the cause and its linkage to Chinese ethnicity is pejorative and offensive.

Chinese restaurant syndrome is a sample topic from the Taber's Medical Dictionary.
