There was just a special on the tv, probably on ABC or NBC, going on about something called excitotoxins. I didn't particularly care what they were saying until they mentioned hydrolyzed protein.
Excitotoxicity is the process by which cell death is produced in neurons by the overactivation of excitatory neurotransmitter receptors such as the NMDA receptor and AMPA receptor. Excitotoxins like NMDA and kainic acid which bind to these receptors, as well as pathologically high levels of the neurotransmitter glutamate, can cause excitotoxicity by allowing high levels of calcium ions to permeate into the cell, . Excitotoxicity may be involved in stroke.
Anyone else catch that special? I thought that hydrolyzed protein was considered to be higher quality protein.
DIDN'T YOU KNOW?! The Chinese know everything! And they knew it 4,000 years before YOU did!

Something about making the cells spastic which makes them die...
I missed most of the special, but the part about protein got my attention,

The only thing that's relevant to diet (as far as I know) is glutamate levels -- and even then, there's no information on how protein intake might impact these types of neuroreceptors.
More input. Daddy needs more input.
