"Chinese Restaurant Syndrome"

I was kind of hoping that this was a joke, but apparently it's not.
Chinese restaurant syndrome is a collection of symptoms that some people experience after eating Chinese food.
Following this logic, I propose that obesity, heart disease, stroke, diabetes, and cancer be relabeled American food syndrome.

Don't worry, though.
Most people recover from mild cases of Chinese restaurant syndrome on their own. Their prognosis is excellent.

There was actually a question on Jeopardy today about "Chinese Restaurant Syndrome." The "correct" answer to the question was MSG.

"American Food Syndrome." I like that.
