Again, several symptoms of MSG effects prematurely interpreted as one causing the other. http://www.healthday.com/view.cfm?id=517660
Consider:
Sroke victims are given glutamate blockers,
Long term depression is being treated with glutamate blockers.
Taurine is used to treat heart disease in Japan
Estradiol - a female hormone, lowers taurine levels.
Taurine has a calming effect.
Stress makes depression worse.
Women suffer depression more often than men. If the answer is female hormones putting women even more at risk of the further taurine lowering effects of MSG, and other MSG effects on mental health, then these seemingly unrelated symptoms make sense. When will these "researchers" see the connections right in front of them?

Harvard Article about women and depression. I think it has to do with the fact that estrogen lowers taurine, and prolactin and MSG both lower dopamine levels. http://www.health.harvard.edu/hhp/article/content.do?name=M0504a
