The Pineal Gland and Fluorinated Water

Leave a comment

The pineal gland, which is also known as the third eye, is situated at the center of the brain where the two hemispheres meet. The pineal gland produces Melatonin, the hormone that initiates and maintains sleep. As we age, the pineal gland calcifies – something which may diminish its function. This may explain why so many elderly people suffer from insomnia. This process of calcification has been linked to an increased intake of fluoride, which makes sense, because fluoride binds to calcium rendering it solid.

Fluoride is added to our tap water because of its tooth decay prevention claims. But recent studies suggest that it is actually calcium that protects teeth and bone. In fact, a high fluoride and low calcium intake can actually cause tooth decay. The fluoride that is added to tap water is even more dangerous than fluoride itself. It is actually an industrial waste product called hydrofluorosilinic acid that is regulated by Canadian Environmental Protection Agency as an environmental pollutant and water contaminant. There is also increasing evidence that fluoride and calcium work together to harden arteries, which is one of the leading causes of heart attacks.

The pineal gland is not all about Melatonin. It is also the main producer of a substance called dimethyltryptamine or DMT. This substance is prevalent in plants and animals. Its role is still unknown, but it is highly hallucinogenic and is released in large quantities during birth and death. Makes you wonder what else the pineal gland has to offer.
