Bert: What are we going to have for dinner?
Julie: I have no idea. Let's eat out today. I know a good exotic restaurant!
Bert: I don't mean to put a damper on your idea. But restaurants use to much salt and MSG. It's not good for our health.
Julie: Oh, I've never thought about it since restaurant food is so delicious. Besides, eating a little bit of salt and MSG can't hurt.
Bert: Nope. Eating too much MSG may result in headaches, nausea and drowsiness. Let's try eating in more often in the future.
Julie: That sounds great! I'll also buy some organic food, so we can eat healthier!
