The pineal gland has been a topic of discussion for many years, and still remains quite mysterious. From a scientific definition it is a small endocrine gland in the vertebrate brain, and is sometimes called the “third eye” because it is a light sensitive, centrally-located organ with cellular features resembling a human retina. How you think and feel every day depends on the pineal gland. As the producer of the hormone melatonin, the quality and duration of how you sleep relies on how well it produces this hormone. This tiny organ regulates your daily and seasonal circadian rhythms, the sleep-wake patterns that determine your hormone levels, stress levels, and physical performance. Like a tiny pea-sized pine cone, it’s located in the center of the brain, and is a very unique brain structure because it isn’t protected by the blood-brain barrier.
In ancient times, the philosopher Rene Decartes (1596-1650) described the pineal gland as the “seat of the soul”. This was his explanation. “my view is that this gland is the principal seat of the soul, and the place in which all our thoughts are formed. The reason i believe this is that I cannot find any part of the brain except this, which is not double. Since we see only one thing with two eyes, and hear only one voice with two ear, and so on unite with each other in some part of the body before being considered by the soul. Now it is impossible to find any such place in the whole head except this gland; moreover it is situated in the most suitable possible place for this purpose, in the middle of all the concavities, and it is supported and surrounded by the little branches of the carotid arteries which bring the spirits into the brain”. Decartes theory was never proven, however we do know that the pineal glands functions are absolutely crucial to the every day health and balance of the human body.
In the late 90’s a scientist named Jennifer Luke carried out the first study on the effects of sodium fluoride on the pineal gland. She determined that the gland, located in the middle of the brain, was a target for fluoride. Perhaps because isn’t protected by the blood-brain barrier. This may explain why it’s uniquely sensitive to calcification via fluoride exposure. The gland simply absorbed more fluoride than any other matter in the body, even bones. The pineal gland acts as a magnet to fluoride. This calcifies the gland making it no longer effective in balancing the correct hormones throughout the body.
So…. what exactly is fluoride? And what exactly are we drinking? The substance added to our drinking water is called hydrofluorosilicic acid. It is a toxic waste substance created from the production of aluminum, fertilizer, steel and nuclear industries. It’s not the natural element of fluoride, it’s industrial toxic waste. Industrial practices produce millions and millions of gallons of this liquid hazardous waste. Because it costs these corporations thousands and thousands of dollars per ton to neutralize and dispose of (hydrofluorosilicic acid), they instead sell it to the population as a ‘product.’ How ridiculous is that? Hydrofluorosilicic acid is shipped to your local drinking water supplier.
A whopping 40% of Americans are reportedly over exposed to fluoride resulting in dental fluorosis. In some areas, fluorosis rates are as high as 70-80 percent, with some children suffering from advanced forms. Overexposure to fluoride has also been directly linked to Alzheimer Disease, Bipolar Disease, Circadian Dysregulation, Hormone imbalances, Insomnia, Parkinson Disease, Schizophrenia, stroke, Increased tumor and cancer rate, Arthritis, and increased aging process. In fact; don’t take my word for it heres a video of Dr. Paul Connett, speaking on the dangers involving fluoride .
Despite proven research, fluoride is still being added to every public water supply, and select bottled water brands. Most common crops are also watered with fluoridated water. Even though it’s illegal to dump fluoride into our lakes and rivers. Fluoride is also in your toothpaste; since 1997 the FDA requires all fluoride toothpaste sold in the U.S. to have this warning: WARNING: KEEP OUT OF REACH OF CHILDREN UNDER 6 YEARS OF AGE. IF YOU ACCIDENTALLY SWALLOW MORE THAN USED FOR BRUSHING, SEEK PROFESSIONAL HELP OF CALL A POISON CONTROL CENTER IMMEDIATELY. Doesn’t sound very reassuring in my mind. Not to mention the fact that 98% of Western Europe has now rejected water fluoridation… and their teeth are just as healthy as ours. Fluoride is also found in processed sugars, caffeines, alcohol, and tobacco; just to name a few.
Now that we know that fluoride exposure leads to calcification of the pineal gland, the questions remains: what are the subjective affects of these tissue changes for those who undergo them? Prozac may represent an archetypal example of how fluoride effects the personality. This drug contains 30% fluoride and is marketed as an “antidepressant”, even while a major side effect of it’s use or withdrawal is suicidal depression. Modern psychiatry often treats depressive disorders as an organic disorder of the brain, targeting serotonin reuptake by any chemical needs necessary. Fluoride may accomplish their intended “therapeutic” effects by poisoning the pineal gland. It’s in my opinions that Prozac causes a favorable reaction in those who are treated with it because it disassociates that person from psychological conflicts that they would normally suppress in order to maintain the appearance of sanity and functionality in day to day life.
As easy as it is to acquire a calcified pineal gland; it is also easy to remove some existing calcification with natural remedies. Such as: raw chocolate, citric acid, and garlic. These all help to dissolve calcium in the body. Along with obvious methods such as not continuing the consumption of water, toothpaste, or food that has been fluoridated.
Convincing the public that we need to add fluoride to our water supply was one of the most sophisticated cons of all time. It created a multi- billion dollar industry and enabled manufacturers to sell this worthless toxic byproduct of aluminum to local municipalities for a profit.
Ayahuasca contains Dimethyltryptamine, or DMT, a powerful neuron-transmitter and psychedelic drug that occurs naturally in many plants. DMT stimulates the activity of the pineal gland in the centre of the brain which operates as what is called the ‘third-eye’ – the connection with other expressions of reality beyond the ‘world’ that we normally perceive. The pineal gland is only the size of a grain of rice but it is vital to body function as well as our ability to ‘see’ beyond what we think we see. How ‘coincidental’ then that the fluoride added to drinking water and toothpaste calcifies the pineal gland. This is part of the agenda to block humanity’s other-dimensional senses to maintain us in five-sense ignorance and so control us. I will explain this throughout the book. The laws against psychoactive drugs all over the world are also an aspect of this dumbing down of human awareness. The effect of what is now called DMT has been known since ancient times and you can see depictions of psychoactive plants and the pineal gland in the remains and artefacts of ancient cultures throughout the world.
Scout - Scout gets easily unnerved/surprised/scared of many things (despite his macho-macho talk - like I said, all talk no walk), but he can recover quickly thanks to his ego and speed. But claustrophobic places definitely takes the cake. He hates tight alleyways, elevators, and small rooms in general. It’s constricting and he has the urge to run out immediately. Tiny spaces = Not an easy way to escape. Scout greatly prefers to be out in the open and places where he can move around. Something like being trapped in a coffin or an elevator would be the most terrifying thing for Scout.
Soldier - Most of the times Soldier is too stupid and thickheaded to actually get scared. If there’s one thing that can definitely throw him off and chip his fearless persona it would be these things: fluoride and tap water. Let me explain and give a brief history lesson - around the 1940-1960’s, there was this huge controversy spawned in America that tap water could be poisoned with fluoride. Why? Because fluoride is an odorless, undetectable chemical, therefore those terrible Commies could use it to kill the American dream! (I’m telling you, it’s crazy what people’s fearful imaginations could make up.)So naturally, Soldier being an upstanding American, he is paranoid of drinking tap water and toothpaste (because fluoride is mixed into it). Medic had to “design” a special toothpaste for Soldier so his breath doesn’t stink up.
Pyro - Huge bodies of water. They don’t ever, ever swim. They don’t know how to swim and prefer to keep it that way. Water is suffocating, it kills their beloved fire. It can be too hot, an unnatural wet hot unlike fire and it could be freezing. Oceans, lakes, and ponds are too deep, to the point where they could swallow people up. It is dangerous. They would absolutely freak out if they ever happen to find themselves submerged in water, where even Pyrovision can’t save them from the scary reality.
Heavy - Things that Heavy can solve with his common sense, strength, and size never scare him. People and animals definitely don’t scare Heavy - he can punch or intimidate them. Tight spaces - nearly everywhere he goes is too tight or tiny for him. But seeing children in potentially dangerous situations definitely scares him. They’re just so so tiny even compared to the little baby men who call themselves “adults” and bounding and energetic and full of life. From kids tip-toeing on a wobbly chair, climbing a tree half of his size, running across busy streets without paying mind to cars, Heavy gets a mini-heart attack each time. He gets scared and nervous because he is helpless in those situations. Of course, he doesn’t outwardly show it, but inwardly he flips the fuck out.
Demoman - Anything remotely supernatural. His encounter with Merasmus (plus being raised with his mother’s paranoid and rigid attitude towards anything otherworldly) only fueled said fear. Afterall, he can’t explode a bunch of ghosts, kick and thrash against zombies, and blow out a wizard’s brains, can he? Though, Demo is a bit too easy to assume unexplainable happenings occur because of supernatural forces. (“AYE, THAT DOOR SWUNG OPEN!” “Damnit Demo, that’s literally just the wind”). He is a god-fearing man, and tends to steer clear of anything that could upset otherworldly beings.
Engineer - Guaranteed he’ll let out a mousy squeak of fear (or whip out his shotgun) if somebody sneaks up at him. It’s an oddly specific fear, but before the Gravel War, Engineer was rarely scared of anything and generally met anything with a cool head. After joining Gravel War, Engineer developed a terrible fear of things he can’t see/things behind him. This fear is all thanks to Spies, always wrecking his buildings and backstabbing too many times to count. The team knows better to announce their presence behind Engineer, so he won’t completely flip out.
Sniper - Cities. He hates them with a burning passion - at the same time, developing legit nausea from the anxiety of being trapped in a city/crowded place. Cities offer an overload of senses - artificial, dirty, and polluted sensations. Cars abusing their honking, people pushing you 24/7, gasoline drenched in the air, and the sky blocked by towering buildings. He gets overwhelmed at the neverending crowds. How could there be so much concrete and steel in one place? Where did all of the trees go? There’s nowhere to hide or coop up - It makes Sniper feel trapped, and he’ll make a beeline to anywhere remotely looking like the wilderness.
Medic - Machine and robots. We all know gore and blood is no stranger to Medic, having to deal with it on a daily basis (and enjoying it waaaay too much). But robots unnerve the hell out of Medic - their expressions are even more difficult to read than a human’s, absence of blood and organs, and worse of all, Medic can’t properly dissect them for examination. (Assuming this, Medic did not appreciate the invasion of Gray Mann’s robots)
Spy - Sleeping. He avoids sleep as much as possible, to an unhealthy degree. Medic and Engineer nag him on and on about getting more sleep. (Because yeah, I headcanon him having a bad case of insomnia). He despises the sensation of temporarily shutting down, where he can’t do anything. It makes him vulnerable. It’s creepy, creepy, creepy. If he had to describe it, sleeping to Spy is “becoming dead for a little while.” He had one bad experience in his earlier days of espionage, where he woke up to being water boarded by interrogators. Needless to say, sleeping is the worst fear for Spy, something he must deal with on a daily basis.
Ugh, like I said, headcanons are fun. I answered this prompt for myself, because I wanted to speculate and think about my favorite cast of mercs. I hope y’all enjoyed me sharing them with you!
Fluoride is added to the drinking water NOT to treat the water, but to treat the people drinking it..
If you feel like I do and wish to bring an end to the water fluoridation where you live what needs to be communicated to your local councilors and water municipality is that, by and large, they (the councilors) are not medically educated. They know little about toxicology. What right do they have to play doctor to the whole community? The evidence that fluoride causes harm is growing. But before councilors get bogged down in trying to understand which side of the argument has the best or most accurate information, they need to answer the question of:
Do they have the right to do what a doctor is not permitted to do—i.e. to medicate people without their consent?
Keep it simple, No, they do not have the right to force medication. To put a medicine in the drinking water defies many aspects of medicine. You can’t control the dose. You can’t control who gets it. It goes to everybody, including bottle-fed babies.
My buddy R is in town, which surprised me and I think maybe surprised him too; I was expecting him later in the month. Still, I have a very mellow social life so I was able to get out to see him, and we had dinner at a little Mexican place in our old neighborhood. He was telling me about this woman he’s dating.
For context: R is involved in helping California, which has just legalized some forms of marijuana (I don’t know the specifics) set up weed farms. His personal and professional life is heavily involved in many varieties of weed.
R: Yeah, she’s cool, she’s like a break from all the work I do, because she’s not involved in that field at all.
Me: What does she do?
R: She’s an officer in the Navy. I don’t know what she does specifically.
Me: *choking on a chip* Does she know what you do?
R: What do you mean?
Me: Specifically what you do, does she know? I mean I know it’s legal, but.
R: She knows I’m working in agriculture.
Me: You should have that conversation.
R: Yeah, we…we probably should.
It’s nice that no matter how far away he lives or how much he matures, it is apparent he will always need me for relationship advice.
Then we got distracted because R’s friend Greg showed up and wanted to have a serious discussion with us about the fluoride in our drinking water and how it’s impairing cognitive function.
I do miss R when he’s not around. He brings the circus with him.
Sure, Quincy powers are good for fighting. But what if the Quincy wanted to use their powers in more…trivial ways? What else might each of their powers be good for?

Cang Du: That is absolutely true.
13. Cang Du’s Iron is also good for…Camping!
He can make his skin impenetrable, right? That would so keep mosquitoes from biting him, which would make camping so much less sucky!
Cang Du: Another bonus is - no stinky bug spray.
Bazz-B: You know, I wouldn’t have come camping with you if I’d known you’d spend the whole night bragging!
14. Bazz-B’s Heat is also good for…Roasting marshmallows!
This is why he and Cang Du like to go camping together.
Sampling the waste in a city’s sewage system can be a good way to study the microbes that live in the population’s guts – and could even offer a way to monitor public health issues such as obesity, according to new research.
The community of microbes that live in a person’s gut, known as the microbiome, is intricately tied to that person’s health. The microbiome can influence, and be influenced by, a range of characteristics such as weight, disease, diet, exercise, mood and much more. But it can be difficult to draw large-scale conclusions about what constitutes a “healthy gut” because of the financial and privacy implications of sampling large enough numbers of people.
So a team of researchers led by Sandra McLellan at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee and Mitchell Sogin at the Marine Biological Laboratory in Woods Hole, Massachusetts, set out to test whether they would be able to spot human microbes lurking in the soupy mix of municipal sewage systems, and thus sample entire cities at once.

I feel like you guys already know everything about me that’s remotely interesting, but here you go:
When I was a kid I wanted to be a marine biologist. I even had shark pajamas. When I was eight I wrote a letter to Bill Clinton about shark poaching (I shit you not). I still love sharks and the ocean. But especially sharks.
I am allergic to fluoride. It’s incredibly annoying because I can’t drink tap water in a lot of places.
I have rapped the Fresh Prince theme song on three different continents. Flawlessly, I might add.
I have never seen Titanic, and at this point I don’t even want to. I once had a French exam that asked us to summarize the plot of the movie, because our professor thought it was the only movie that everybody in the class would have seen. When I told him I hadn’t he sighed and told me to just make it up, and as long as the grammar was right he didn’t really care if the plot was wrong. My summary may or may not have included velociraptors.
I threw up halfway through the SAT, finished it, and still got a pretty good score. I had the flu but the only other day to take it was my 18th birthday so I went even though I was sick, puked in a recycling bin in the middle of the math section and continued to work diligently. Everyone else in the room was sufficiently horrified.
hey cherry, so in order to achieve spiritual bliss, I should stop drinking fluoride water?
hey well fluoride can impair our ascension, it calcifies the pineal gland, so it basically spray paints the 3rd eye, hence the docile looks when you walk down the street, tv and water, if you can get filtered water that will always be better, fluoride was a part of the mind control nazis used, the government is pretty aware of the effects it has on us psychologically hope that helped -C. xxx
An experiment was conducted in the Yellareddyguda village of Narketpally Mandal. The researchers soaked 75mg of Tulsi leaves in 100ml of water that contained 7.4 parts per million of fluoride in the water. After only soaking the Tulsi leaves for eight hours, it was discovered that the level of fluoride in the water was reduced from 7.4 parts per million, to only 1.1 parts per million.
Fluoride is often present in very harmful levels in drinking water in some countries. This may offer a cheap and natural way of safely remove it.
“When it comes to a wide variety of issues — the safety of GMOs, the efficacy of vaccines, the veracity of human-caused climate change, air and water pollution, or nuclear power — many of us have opinions that are based on fear or ideology, rather than on what the science says. In many cases, we even vote (or ask our representatives to vote) on not just policy but on the science of these issues, such as the senate did on the issue of climate change in 2015. This strikes me as the epitome of silliness, not merely because the idea of voting on science is completely antithetical to the entire enterprise of science itself, but because debate in science isn’t about achieving consensus, but rather is about raising the issues that need to be clarified to determine the answer.”
When it comes to many issues, democracy and popular opinion does and should determine the outcome. But when it comes to science and scientific issues, popular opinion or the votes of even an elite group of people doesn’t mean very much at all. Instead, it’s the truth that the Universe tells us about itself, through experiment, measurement and inquiry, that determines the answer. We may act like climate change, nuclear power, GMOs, fluoridated drinking water and a whole host of other issues are determined by science, but for the vast majority of us, it’s our opinions and ideologies that determine our stances on these issues, not the science itself. This is a problem that’s plagued all of science, even astronomy, going back for generations to the original ‘Great Debate,’ which solved absolutely nothing.
So apparently my island’s government decided it would be a good idea to ‘put a lot more fluoride in the water’ because it is ‘good for the teeth’ even though ‘there may be health dangers to it’. (I QUOTE!!)
Wow government. Instead of just putting it in the water and forcing us to drink your fluoride filled water which most of the island doesn’t agree with, why don’t you make fluoride pills that people can pick up for free? Of course not, because one would have to be insane to take a pure fluoride pill. So why put it even more in ohr water? So we can choose whether we want something like that in our body or not, instead of just against the majority’s will drop it in there.
My knowledge of fluorine is that in water treatment it's good in small doses(like pretty much everything) We kinda need fluoride to protect the enamel on our teeth. Like seriously we'd probably have no teeth left without the fluoride ion
Numerous studies have shown the benefits of topical fluoride vs. tooth decay. It’s really not an effect that’s up for debate. Though there have been debates over whether water fluoridation is the most effective way to accomplish this, some studies have shown that even in areas where fluoridated toothpaste is used, water fluoridation still lowered tooth decay rates. Either way, really, there’s no scientific doubt that the concentrations of fluoride being used to fluoridate water supplies are safe.
Treat your body the way you want it to treat you … Fruits are my candy , I don’t do soda or those sus juices with all that fructose .. I drink lots of water ( don’t drink tap water it has fluoride that diminishes your pineal gland) , I eat a lot veggies and organic foods.. No dairy it’s not for black people ..I don’t do soy either although I used to .. It effects melanin … Almond milk or rice milk.
And if you’re eating fast food and bacon at this stage.. you’re just lost
