Hi.
I happen to know that "Taurine" can protect the liver from
toxic chemicals (see: Waterfield et al. 1993, Toxicology, vol. 77,
pp. 1-20). Note that all experiments are performed using MALE rats.
They also says that this beta-amino acid is found in many mammalian 
tissues. 
An article by John Emsley in "New Scientist", p. 19, april 3, 1993 
says that the babies that are breast-fed swallow taurine with their 
mother's milk.
Can anyone provides me some scientific references to support the
above notion of John Emsley, i.e mother's milk contains taurine.
Thank you in advance.
