The Dangers Of Fluoride To Children And How To Remove It

By: Ron Morefield

Now, dangers of fluoride to the brain and nervous system are known, and the latest research demonstrates fluoride ingestion links to bone cancer and to hyperthyroidism. Resulting symptoms include weight gain, muscle and joint pain, fatigue, depression, high cholesterol, and heart disease. This means that all mothers should be seriously concerned for fluoride consumption in their infants and children.

Normally, the intake of fluoride of breast-fed infants is negligible, less than 0.01 milligram each day. That is due to the fact that human breast milk just contains a trace of fluoride, no matter what the fluoride consumption of the nursing mother. No one is certain exactly why that is, but it has been suggested that the physiological plasma-milk barrier protects the newborn human from the toxic effects of fluoride. The same phenomenon can be seen in cow milk. It also contains low levels of fluoride despite fluoride being added to the food or drinking water.

In addition, it has been observed that during breastfeeding, more fluoride is excreted in the urine than is ingested in the diet. Moreover, fluoride deposited in fetal bone during pregnancy is released into the extracellular fluids and subsequently excreted into urine. For all practical purposes, this means that the natural condition for early human development has been virtually fluoride-free, even in the high water fluoridation areas. Naturally, this phenomenon lasts until the age of weaning and the introduction of solid foods. Then fluoride is consumed. The natural fluoride-free development also is disrupted in bottle-feeding where unfiltered water from fluoridated areas is being used in the reconstitution of the formula.

In fact, infants being fed powdered formula made with fluoridated water retain more than half of the ingested fluoride in their mineralizing tissues including the pineal. Fluoride accumulation in the pineal during childhood can affect indole metabolism in much the same way that high local concentrations of fluoride in enamel organ and bone affect the correct metabolism of ameloblasts and osteoblasts for proper bone development.

Fluoride exposure continues through childhood. That includes exposure through juices, drinks, toothpastes and a whole variety of processed foods, like cereals. The exposure may come in any manufactured foods that use fluoridated municipal water in their processing. Research shows that the fluoride is accumulating in the pineal gland at an earlier age than in previous decades. An unusually high concentration of fluoride in the pineal impacts its ability to synthesize sufficient melatonin, which is normally at its highest production levels during early childhood.

The problem does not go away after childhood. In fact, aged pineal glands contain more fluoride than any other location of soft tissue in the body. In fact, evaluations of the fluoride in calcified pineal glands show the level of fluoride to be similar to that in dangerously fluorosed bone. Those are bones experiencing fluoride poisoning, where the bones are actually falling apart. In people exposed to fluoride, the pineal gland contains the highest fluoride concentration in their bodies. The question is how this impacts melatonin production in the aging person, where melatonin is needed to provide healthy regenerative sleep, proper bone formation, and protection from cell damage.
