Finally, I want to strongly advise my readers to eat take-out dishes as rarely as possible. I know that our time is more and more limited and this sounds like a fine and even more affordable alternative to home cooking. However, the effects may sometimes be unfortunate. One of them is the Chinese Restaurant Syndrome (CRS). CRS refers to when people experience symptoms such as sweating and headaches after eating in Chinese restaurants. Doctors now call this the MSG effect, an additive used in restaurants and pre-packaged foods. Therefore, please find some time to cook for yourself at home. The future YOU will most probably be thanking you!
