Gunawan Bambang Dwiyanto of the Central Intelligence Ministry of Health, as quoted by Antara.
Derifat glutamate will appear when the child is stressed. This incident makes the adrenaline rise. Adrenaline also affects brain cell enlargement which will then die and be replaced by a new brain cells that release derivatives glutamate.
