Anyone who has searched for various treatments for their disease has met the "detox philosophy", which has convinced us at some point, that if only we would detoxify, eat properly, and get lots of oxygen, we would be cured. Most of us have tried, possibly to feel better briefly, and not had lasting results. The "detox proponents" do not explain why it is that we should need to detox when our neighbour, whose lifestyle is much more toxic than ours, seems healthier than we are. Or why, when mercury is toxic to everyone, we are the ones whose body is totally overwhelmed by it. Why is it that in our bodies, nobody is "taking out the garbage"? The role of melatonin is "taking out the garbage" and protecting us from building it up in the first place.
There may be a number of factors that weaken the pineal gland and thus contribute to its calcification. Some of these may set up a negative feedback loop, which then intensifies the calcification. Up until the 1990s, no research had ever been conducted to determine the impact of fluoride on the pineal gland. It is now known - thanks to the meticulous research of Dr. Jennifer Luke from the University of Surrey in England - that the pineal gland is the primary target of fluoride accumulation within the body.
The soft tissue of the adult pineal gland contains more fluoride than any other soft tissue in the body - a level of fluoride capable of inhibiting enzymes. The pineal gland also contains hard tissue and this hard tissue accumulates more fluoride than any other hard tissue in the body (e.g. teeth and bone). After finding that the pineal gland is a major target for fluoride accumulation in humans, Dr. Luke conducted animal experiments to determine if the accumulated fluoride could impact the functioning of the gland - particulalry the gland's regulation of melatonin.
Luke found that animals treated with fluoride had lower levels of circulating melatonin, as reflected by reduced levels of melatonin metabolites in the animals' urine. This reduced level of circulating melatonin was accompanied - as might be expected - by an earlier onset of puberty in the fluoride-treated female animals.
Luke summarized her human and animal findings as follows: "In conclusion, the human pineal gland contains the highest concentration of fluoride in the body. Fluoride is associated with depressed pineal melatonin synthesis by prepubertal gerbils and an accelerated onset of sexual maturation in the female gerbil. The results strengthen the hypothesis that the pineal has a role in the timing of the onset of puberty. Whether or not fluoride interferes with pineal function in humans requires further investigation."
Recent information on the role of the pineal organ in humans suggests that any agent that affects pineal function could affect human health in a variety of ways, including effects on sexual maturation, calcium metabolism, parathyroid function, postmenopausal osteoporosis, cancer, and psychiatric disease. We know from recent studies - and considerable press coverage - that young girls are reaching puberty earlier and earlier in the US. I am not saying that Dr. Luke is saying that fluoridation is the cause, but her work waves a very worrying red flag.
I believe that pineal gland calcification is at the core of a genocide that is being perpetrated on those of us living in the U.S. Fluoride, along with the disruption of the hydrological, carbonic, and nitrogen cylces, the dumping of tons of inorganic heavy metals and other toxins into our air, water and food, has created a society of docile slaves that are unwittingly being led to slaughter.
When one considers the seriousness of a possible interference by fluoride on a growing child's pineal gland (and for that matter, elderly pineal glands) it underlines the recklessness of fluoridation. Fluoride is the ionic, or electrically charged form of the element fluorine, and it is the most chemically reactive and electronegative of all the elements. In water, fluorine commonly occurs as the fluoride ion. It is reactive and strongly attaches itself to other elements, making them hard and brittle.
In the larger scheme of things, this is an even more diabolical feature of this plan. Because of the synergistic effect of other chemical toxins being released into our atmosphere, the negative effect of fluoride is amplified. With the proliferation of cell phones, wireless internet, microwaves, and other electromagnetic devices, there seems to be fertile scientific ground for even more devastation amongst those of us affected. Only the greatest acts of greed and callous disregard for the quality of human life, coupled with the greatest level of apathy by the people it is being perpetrated upon, could allow for the continuation of this sinister practice.
