Fluoride: Calcifier of the Soul

Research published in 2001 showed that fluoride (F) deposits in the pineal gland with age and is associated with enhanced gland calcification. Eleven aged cadavares were dissected and their pineal glands assayed:

 "There was a positive correlation between pineal F and pineal Ca (r = 0.73, p<0.02) but no correlation between pineal F and bone F. By old age, the pineal gland has readily accumulated F and its F/Ca ratio is higher than bone."

What is the pineal gland?

The pineal gland is a small endocrine gland in the vertebrate brain, and is sometimes called the "third eye" as it is a light sensitive, centrally-located organ with cellular features resembling the human retina. 

One article describes the role of the pineal gland in more technical terms here:

"The role of the nonvisual photoreception is to synchronise periodic functions of living organisms to the environmental light periods in order to help survival of various species in different biotopes."  Source

The pineal gland is best known for its role in producing the hormone melatonin from serotonin (triggered by the absence of light) and affects wake/sleep patterns and seasonal/circadian rhythms. Like a tiny pea-sized pine cone it is located near the center of the brain, between the two hemispheres  and is a unique brain structure insofar as it is not protected by the blood-brain-barrier. This may also explain why it is uniquely sensitive to calcification via fluoride exposure.

More than an endocrine gland

Technically the mammalian pineal gland is neural tissue, and the cells within the pineal gland - the pinealocytes - have characteristics that resemble the photorecetpor cells in the retina.

This has given rise to the opinion that it should be reclassified:

"In our opinion, the main trend of today's literature on pineal functions--only considering the organ as a common endocrine gland--deviates from this structural and histochemical basis." Source

The pineal gland has been a subject of much interest since ancient times. Galen described it in the 3rd century, and the philosopher René Decartes (1596-1650) identified the pineal gland as the "seat of the soul." His explanation for this conclusion is quite interesting: 

"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 ears, and in short have never more than one thought at a time, it must necessarily be the case that the impressions which enter by the two eyes or by the two ears, 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." Source: Wikipedia

Decartes was one of the few philosophers who was experienced in vivisection and anatomy, and who righly pointed out the unique nature of the pineal gland's location in the brain and blood supply. 

The "third eye" is also a well known symbol in Eastern literature, and may be concretely grounded in the anatomical structure and function of the pineal gland.

Calcium stones in the brain

Pineal gland calcifications upon dissection resemble gravel, and are composed of calcite (calcium carbonate) and/or calcium hydroxylapatite, the latter of which is not unlike dentin or bone.  (Source

Pineal gland calcification is associated with a number of diseases in the medical literature:

Fluoride as a "therapeutic" neurotoxin?

Now that it has been established that fluoride (F) exposure contributes to the calcification of the pineal gland, the question remains: what are the subjective affects of these tissue changes to those who undergo them? 

Prozac may represent an archetypal example of how fluoride affects the personality/soul. This drug (chemical name fluoxetine) is approximately 30% fluoride by weight and marketed as an "antidepressant," even while a major side effect of its use and/or withdrawal is suicidal depression.  Modern psychiatry often treats depressive disorders - the "dark night of the soul" - as an organic disorder of the brain, targeting serotonin reuptake by any chemical means necessary. Fluoride and fluoxetine, in fact,  may accomplish their intended "therapeutic effects" by poisoning the pineal gland.  Animal studies confirm that when mice have their pineal glands removed they no longer respond to fluoxetine.  Source

Perhaps the primary reason why Prozac causes a favorable reaction in those who are treated (poisoned) with it, is that it disassociates that person from the psychospiritual conflicts that they must normally suppress in order to maintain the appearance of sanity and functionality in society, i.e. it is control and not health that is the goal of such "treatment."

If Prozac and other sources of fluoride in our environment deposits within the pineal gland, accelerating the transformation of functional pineal tissue into calcification, is it possible that it works by dehumanizing and flattening the affect of those who are under its influence?

How do we prevent pineal gland calcification?

Eliminating exposure to fluoride is the #1 priority.  We can start by being careful about surreptitious forms of fluoride in Teflon, foods and beverages produced with muncipal water, tap water, infant formula, fluoride containing drugs like Prozac, toothpaste, etc. We have collected a number of studies from the US National Library of Medicine on natural substances which mitigate fluoride toxicity.  We also have a section on our database dedicated to finding substances which prevent or reverse other forms of pathological calcification which may have relevance for pineal gland calcification, such as ectopic calcification. Lastly, there is research on the potential value of magnesium and phytate in reducing pineal gland calcification.

There is one important fact that needs to be brought up, repeated in to many books on poisons and toxicoloy, the safe amount of fluoride is zero. Parts per million, makes no difference, Fluoride is poison to humans in any and all quantities. The sources are to numerous. Read "The Fluoride Deception" to have ready facts and sources.

when you look at the egyptian symbol for " the eye of horus " and then look at a cross section of the human brain,and pineal gland. they look identical :)

One thing not mentioned here: The pineal gland is in the most protected space, the center of the skull within it's own saddle shaped bony enclosure, of the entire body. Neither the brain nor the heart is so protected...

This is ONE of the best documented facts of just how mainstream has been the target of a most diabolical plan conceivable against the people of mainstream … a psychopathic plan I can only consider to be a silent and slow kill genocide project by in-land chemical warfare against the people of Mother Earth … Mainstream America seems to have been where the negative light elite have collected and imprisoned from all over the world, rightful heirs and chosen people of all nations who were actually destined to hold governing seats in the earth and in celestial worlds of the heavens .. those whom would have established their link with Higher Powers via their GOD given THIRD EYE, and encoded DNA ... that THIRD EYE which have been forcibly blocked of telepathic visions forcing the closing of the EYE, and blinding them from seeing beyond the veil … Now to make their sinister task easier and more thorough … lands were invaded while strong spiritual leaders were separated from their homelands and from their tribal colony gatherings .. and did so to oppress them under the imprisoning skies of an infiltrated U.S. government … under skies where the true royal leaders and chosen people were constantly subjected to every harmful chemicals possible as to not only alter their natural DNA evolution … but to day in and day out subject them to negative electron frequencies as to oppress their memory which kept enlighten consciousness from linking with Higher frequencies of Higher Powers … And at the same time these psychopathic and sinister elites concentrated on diligently attacking and doing harm to anyone in mainstream showing signs of remembering or thinking outside the box … they did so all while these enemies proclaimed to the outside world beyond the veil, that their (poisoning) chemicals and (mind controlling) frequencies were for the good of the people … and not only that … With the true Royal and chosen people gathered in the central U.S. prison without visible walls .. their kindred people all over the world … were also being victimized, tortured and enslaved by their infiltrated governing hands … UNTIL NOW …

since the pineal gland is the seat of understanding where sounds and action before us are deciphered and interpreted, what are the mice responding to after they have their pineal gland removed and how do they interpret their environment?
