MSG - Dangerous?

So, the wife and friends and I were discussing the topic of MSG the other day, and the question came up, "How is MSG bad for you, and is it only bad if you have a lot of it?"

I had no clue. This is a topic that has not yet been discussed in any of my premed classes. Somehow, everyone knows that this is bad for you, yet it seems that not everyone knows why. Any med students or knowledgeable people out there willing to help me/us out?
