The brain is the most complex organ system of the human body. With an intricate communication system involving neuronal cells and multiple forms of chemical neurotransmitters, the brain efficiently transmits impulses guiding children as well as adults to achieve normal behavioral development. However, today's toxic environment is impeding normal behavioral development, and has become a critical risk factor in the onset of ADHD-like symptoms. Chemical additives in our food and water supply, not proved safe by the FDA, deserve attention to reduce the epidemic rise in childhood ADHD as well as autism. Chemical additives in healthcare products, including fluoride, may cause negative behavioral effects due to calcification of the pineal gland.

Located deep within the brain below the corpus callosum, which is the circuit connector for the right and left brain hemispheres, the pineal gland is responsible for the secretion of melatonin, the human body's biological time-clock hormone regulating normal sleep patterns. More importantly, the pineal gland plays a critical role in the enzyme pathway for the production of brain neurotransmitters including serotonin and norepinephrine. Additionally, the body's anti-oxidant defense system is optimized by healthy pineal tissue, which helps eliminate free-radical toxin accumulation in the body.

Although the pineal gland is very small, approximately 7 millimeters, only the kidney receives more blood perfusion of any organ system in the body. This biological fact is especially important since the pineal gland accumulates the largest concentration of fluoride calcification, in the form of calcium phosphate, than any soft tissue of the human body. Also called the Third Eye and spiritual center of thought, this small body of tissue is involved in the mind's ability to develop higher levels of consciousness. Children and adults experiencing ADHD-like symptoms should consume a whole foods, GMO-free diet devoid of pesticides, chemical food additives, and sugar, as well as fluoride, to reduce pineal-tissue calcification. Children as young as 2 years of age can develop pineal calcification. Unfortunately, fluoride is a socially accepted neurotoxin contained in most water supplies as well as consumer products, including toothpaste.

Pineal-gland calcification due to excessive fluoride exposure is a clinical risk factor in the onset of Alzheimer's disease, bipolar disease, and insomnia, as well as ADHD. Currently, there are over 20 human studies and over 100 animal studies linking fluoride to brain damage resulting in neuro-behavioral disorders. Studies also link pineal calcification to early-onset puberty in females due to disturbed or reduced melatonin secretion. Therefore the pineal gland has the distinct role in the "normal" timing of puberty onset.

Currently, the EPA authorizes maximum fluoride content in drinking water at 4 parts per million. Studies conclude that behavioral disturbances may occur due to fluoridated drinking water as low as 1.2 ppm. Government agencies complicit in this public-health issue should re-evaluate the dangers fluoride poses in childhood behavioral development. Children and adults battling behavioral conditions should adopt an action plan to prevent the onset of pineal-gland calcification.

The Pineal Gland Decalcification Action Plan
" Eliminate sugar
" Eliminate processed and GMO foods from the diet
" Use non-fluoridated or baking soda toothpaste brands
" Drink cold purified or distilled water
" Take one teaspoon cold organic apple cider vinegar in water once a day... contains malic acid, which may be effective in decalcifying the pineal gland
" Eat raw beets 4 times a week... contains high concentrations of boron
" Antioxidant supplementation
