Crinella found that:
(a) The mineral manganese may cause behavioral problems if consumed in high doses.
(b) High manganese exposure results in lower levels of the neurotransmitter dopamine, which plays a key role in inhibiting behavior seen in cases of ADHD.
(c) Studies on manganese miners have shown that it causes a number of behavioral problems.
(d) High doses of manganese exposure have been known to produce a syndrome called "manganism," marked by tremors similar to Parkinson's disease and spasmodic, often violent, behavior.
(e) Soy milk formula contains about 80 times the levels of manganese found in breast milk.
