    ..... there are many ways to be effected - not "affected" and meaning

    Hello all users!

    Since there are glutamate receptors all over the body, including the brain, heart, lungs and the pancreas, there are many ways to be effected.

    I understand the fragment in question as follows:

    there are many ways (in which) the aforementioned organs can be affected.

    What do you think.

    Thank you.

    Context:

    In addition to what I have touched on above, MSG can cause a whole host of other problems. Since there are glutamate receptors all over the body, including the brain, heart, lungs and the pancreas, there are many ways to be effected. For example, by affecting hypothalamus (the part of the brain that regulates food intake), MSG can lead to obesity. By affecting neural pathways from the brain to joints or muscles, MSG can be implicated in diseases such as Alzheimer’s fibromyalgia and arthritis.

    IMO "effected" is a typo and should be "affected".
