      Thank you for posting this video, very informative and I think everyone can benefit from this. I did some research a while ago about this and found out all these terrible claims about it, so I went as far as to try cutting out all fluoride from my life. Non-fluoride toothpaste and RO water at least. I want to get my own RO filter but they're so expensive.

      But I've been wondering what could be done to remove the fluoride already calcified on my pineal gland? Does it just break down over time if you don't ingest fluoride? Some things I've read that remove buildup are cilantro, tobacco, and focusing on your third eye, but I was wondering how effective these are and how long it may take to remove fluoride from my body.

      I have always used a small amount of toothpaste because as a child my intuition told me that it was good for my teeth but not for my body. My drinking water isn't flouridated which would concern me id it was as I wouldn't know how much of a dose I would be receiving. But hey with the explosion of cancers, asthma and other ills there is plenty of nasty stuff that has polluted every facet of our water supplies and food chains. Flouride is just another one to add to the list.

      Tap water in the US is one of the most easily obtained, high quality water in the world. I drink at least 3 glasses a day. It is in my opinion perfectly safe.

      Except in the US they put high amounts of fluoride in our tap water. It's a poison that's excess from toxic wastes that they don't have anything else to do with so they dump it in our water and say it's good for us. As far as I've seen, the only state that doesn't put fluoride in their water is Hawaii, and those are some of the happiest most relaxed people I have ever met. Maybe some individual cities also, you can check with your local water supplier to find out how much fluoride is in your water.

      Toothpaste isn't so bad if you don't swallow it, but the claims about fluoride protecting teeth is false. It can actually cause dental fluorosis and it does nothing to prevent tooth decay as it is claimed to. The protective layer is so small that the first thing you chew destroys that barrier.

      I'm going to quote a post I made in this thread: http://www.dreamviews.org/f11/avoiding-flouride-129121/

      In short, I have the tendency to believe that fluoride in very low concentrations such as those of water and toothpaste have no effect on the human body at all.

      First of all, when you use toothpaste you don't swallow it, you spit it out after use, so there isn't any danger to the human body in that respect. Second, in terms of water fluoridation which is usually the main concern of fluoride, there is no evidence that the chemical is dangerous in extremely low concentrations in water. There is currently no scientific evidence that supports claims that low concentrations of fluoride lower IQ, cause cancer, cause submissive behavior, increase stress, is a neo-nazi plot, etc. In terms of my own experience, I haven't experienced any differences in my behavior or dreams having moved from The Netherlands (no water fluoridation), to Canada (water fluoridation).

      The interesting thing is, I'm actually against water fluoridation; not for health reasons but for environmental reasons because water fluoridation is not sustainable environmentally.
      Again, I don't see any reason why fluoride is dangerous to an individual's health.

      You can't measure the effectiveness of water fluoridation by making perceived judgements of a society. Hawaii probably seems far more relaxed than other states in the US because of its culture, not how water is treated.

      Yea sorry that was probably a bad example, wasn't trying to state my whole case on that, just adding it in there. I was just considering it because of the claims about how fluoride calcifies the pineal gland. If it's true that the pineal gland has a role in spirituality and enlightenment, then a calcified pineal gland may make it harder for a person to reach higher states of enlightenment and fulfillment.

      Also a calcified pineal gland can effect melatonin production which is responsible for our sleep cycle; so for us dreamers, even just that alone may be enough for someone to consider reducing fluoride intake.

      As far as general health, there still need to be studies done about if fluoride can cause cancer and the other more serious health problems that it may have an effect on. But what is known is that the fluoride gets stored in our body in our bones and the pineal gland (which collects the highest amount of fluoride in the body). So whatever your views are on this, if you don't care whether your bones are brittle when you're older or your teeth get discolored, or that your pineal gland is basically a rock, then sure go for it and ingest all the fluoride you want. It doesn't have any [known] benefits for our body, so I'm going to try to avoid it if for nothing else than just to not be putting poison in my body.

      This just makes me upset. I'm already screwed, so why should I even care? I already have serious serious emotional and psychological problems.

      This video is laughable. Fluoride is clearly on the periodic table, it's the anion of fluorine, the ninth element. The pineal gland does not produce endorphins, and neither serotonin, melatonin, nor dimethyltryptamine are endorphins (considering beta-endorphin is what endorphins are)--they are all tryptamines. Endorphins are endogenous opioids--meaning the body's natural version of pain killer drugs. The pineal gland is primarily responsible for playing a role with the circadian rhythm and sleep; what she claims it's responsible for isn't reliably proven. She got enough wrong and appeared manipulative enough in this video for me to nearly dismiss the dangers of fluoride altogether out of spite. I'm not really like that, but if there even are any dangers to fluoride, I would rather research them for myself and I think everyone else should too. This woman is clearly too stupid to know what she's talking about or too manipulative (knowing her audience is that gullible) to be trusted as a reliable and credible source of information.

      Lead and mercury are on the periodic table as well...but we don't want to be ingesting those either...Just because it's an element doesn't make it safe

      I was responding to her assertion that fluoride is not natural and can be found nowhere on the periodic table of elements because it clearly can be and is.

      why not? I just buy reverse osmosis water occasionally, you can also get filters but they're pretty pricey

      That's what I mean, I don't have money for all that stuff. I DO get reverse osmosis water sometimes but it doesn't last long.

      Yea, it runs out pretty quick, but even just that little bit can help some. Some of the cheaper pitcher or faucet filters will get most stuff out of tap water though they're not guaranteed to remove fluoride, but at least with mine it can reduce the PPM of all the dissolved solids by at least half. Though with those you also have to buy replacement filters after a while, so it really just depends on how much you can spend versus how much you care to remove it. Supposedly there are detox supplements you can take to remove fluoride but I haven't tried any of these yet.
