May's Blount County Commission meeting was standing room only but the
only people allowed to stand against the wall were County Deputies in uniforms.

Chairman Moon ruled all the other taxpayers without seats were forced out into
the hall.  Which accounted for the loudest applause of the meeting comming
after Commissioner Carter described how Blount County compares with other
"We SUCK" .

Taxpayer Keith Miller's remarks before the Commission said it best. 

Washington's politics is characterized by an arrogant chief executive
who is happy to by-pass the legislature to bring hoards of illegals
over the border. 

While OUR MAYOR attempts to overturn the results of the
$95 thousand  dollar jail study with an absurd lawsuit, he and his finance director
fast tracked a total of $ 900 thousand dollars in capital fund expenditures through
a predominately lapdog commission... for the problematic Kronos project. 

Not only that but he seconded the motion to send the commission the infamous
Evergreen compersation study which embodies all the rediculous, nature of
Obamacare in that you must vote on it before you can read it since it is
not yet finished.

The passing of the Evergreen Resolution to adopt it's pay scale
reccomendations according to page 4.7 means 507 employees are
to each get a $3444 (three thousand four hundred and forty four dollar)
 pay raise.

The express need for the pay raises is the loss of qualified
personnel, and the difficulty in recuriting qualified replacements.

The Evergreen study on 3.3 reports that Blount County is above the national
average of tenure,  7 to 9 years with a tenure of 11.1 overall. 

The Sherrif's Department average tenure is 10.1,  jail is 8.4, juvenial detention 9.8,
sheriff school security 11.7. sheriff clerical 15.1, and  sheriff C I D is 16.4.

The Evergreen salary increase will be funded by 6 cents of the 50 cent property
tax hike to be voted on in June's Commission meeting from Blount County workers
who average  $28,000 a year while the minimun starting salary
and benefits for a county employee according to the Evergreen study is $ 28,000.

Voting to PASS the Evergreen TAX INCREASE were Dist. 10  Melton:
Dist.9, Allen and French:Dist 8 Caskey and Bowers, Dist 7 Stinnett,
Dist. 6 Crowe, Dist 5 Carver and Headrick; Dist. 4Moon and Farmer
Dist. 3 Caylor and Samples, Dist. 2 Lewis, Dist. 1 Carter the commissioner
who said  Blount County S U C K S!!!

In Truth Radio's opinion Blount County really is JUST LIKE WASHINGTON'S
District or Criminals by the way they treat the people who pay them,
You can call the commission office at 273-5730 and ask how to contact
your commissioner and ask him if he draws a salary or any of his family ?

Blount Co. Students 11,000, Maryville City Students 5,000, Alcoa City Students 2,000

On June 24, 2013Jim Hart, UT County Technical Assistance Service
Jail Management Consultant.  Mr. Hart presented a report concerning the
Blount County Jail Expansion Evaluation

"I provided some information based on the Tennessee Department of Corrections
monthly snapshot report and you see that on page 7.
The only thing to point out there, was that it appears that there's a significant
increase in the numbers of convicted misdemeanants in custody looking at the
2013, Your inmate housing areas were sitting at about 148% of capacity. 
When you see this, you see a facility that's operating in crisis management.
Were juggling inmates from moving people constantly to try to ensure the
safety of staff, ensure the safety of inmates, and as I mentioned your
unique classification system sort of goes away which then,
we start cracking open the door of potential litigation against the county
as we start talking about inmate injuries, assaults, that failure to protect issues.
Due to chronic conditions, there's insufficient showers, commodes, sinks,
floor space is taken up if you will.".

Blount County Adult Detention Facility is certified for 350 inmates.  In 2011 it's
average daily count was 455. in 2012 it was 505 and in 2013 the average daily
count was 507.

The first Key Recommendation in the Action Plan for the Blount County Jail
Assessment begins stating out of the 400 plus county assessments it has
done Blount County has 57 percent of the pretrial population was being held
without bond because they had a probation violation pending.   Hence, the Courts
employ probation violations to deny bonds to persons charged with a new offense
while on active probation is how the assessment reads on page 86.

According to the inmate profile analysis of the Jail's population on November
20, 2013 the jail had 524 inmates if which 150 were randomly selected for analysis.
The that sample 64 percent were Blount County residents or 335 of the 524.

The first recommendation on page 87 is to lower the jail population of "locals" to
100 via police citation of misdemeanants in lieu of custody, or speedier process,
and real classification.  Taking the local inmate population down to 100 would
release 235 of those 335 locals who are being held for probation violations without bail
or the INABILITY TO pay the financial obligations owed THE COURTS.  The assessment
recommends these inmates could be allowed to work off their financial obligations
to the system at a "Day Fine" rate, with the rate being close to what they would
make at their regular job, and not be charges to participate in the work program. 

The study concludes that the cost of mounting such a program as something that
would reduce both jail and probation caseloads and thus postpone the need for jail

August NEWS - Maryville's Good OLE Boys

Maryville City Council  enables beer drinking bikers to violate ordinances, while women and children in crisis pregnancies or homeless are without their support.

In the Winter of 2013 Maryville's Mayor Tom Taylor's council rejected the invitation, by 24 year organiser of the Prayer Chain for Life to Co-Sponsor the event so
it could continue praying within the new "free speech zone'' of 250 feet from the intersections to Lamar's Parkway.

If you have not participated you are invited as a matter of fact every church in Blount County for 24 years has been sent an invitation every in August to join the Prayer Chain on Lamar's Parkway inviting them to PRAY JUST ONE HOUR, between two and three pm on the first Sunday in October.

Only now it is called a Prayer Meeting because the City Council Ordinance prohibits Praying within 250 feet of the intersections.  However when the biker's "Hog Ralley" wants to carry open beer containers from one end of  downtown Maryville on Broadway to the other, Mayor Tayor Council will co-sponsor the event so they can violate the City's ordinance.  But when the Pray Chain asked them to co-sponsor Prayer they
refursed,  saying the risk is to great.  Apparently Mayor Taylor and his Council believe drinking beer
is better for Maryville than praying for mother's and their unborn in crisis pregnancies.

If your Pastor hasn't shared the invitation with your church to participate in this year's 24th Annual Prayer Meeting for Life and you would like an invitation call 984-1470.

The hypocritical actions of Mayor Taylor's Council doen't stop there unfortunately, last month the fund raising Yard Sales for the Heaven Sent Homes for women and men were ticketed by the Maryville Codes enforcement because they are only allowed two yard sales a year at any address in the city.

The Heaven Sent Homes have operated on donations from these yard sales and a couple of churches for 12 years sheltering up to 15 women and their children,
plus 7 men in their own home helping them get their lives together.

In 2012 the Maryville City Council and Mayor changed the ordinance on yard sales saying you can only have two yard sales per address per year. However they changed the ordinance for the Saturday Morning Farmers Market at Plantation Square on Broadway proving they can make exceptions when they want to.

If you would like to support the Heaven Sent Homes for the homeless call Currently only two churches are supporting these homes on a monthly basis, The Lords Desciples, pastor David Hutsell and New Hope Baptist , pastor Mike Parker.  Mount Vista Baptist, Jerry Mantooth, pastor  is organizing a yard sale for the Heaven Sent Homes October 16 and 17 and if you could donate to that event call for more information 982-6070 before bringing anything to the church. The address for monetary donations is Heaven Sent Homes P.O. Box 7054 Maryville, TN 37802.

So editorially speaking what have we learned about Maryville's City Council policies? They are willing to   accepting the liability risk of supporting beer drinking bike riders, and farmers on Broadway as long as they stay on the plantation.  But they are unwilling to accept the liability risk of praying for those in crisis pregnancies or helping the homeless.

Radioactive Flouride

Fluoridated Water 

Another Hidden Source of Radioactive Polonium

 You can also consume polonium by drinking fluoridated water, courtesy of the fluorosilicic acid used. While pharmaceutical grade fluoride is a harmful-enough drug, this is not the type of fluoride being added to drinking water. If it was, at least then it would be a pure, uncontaminated form. Rather the fluoride that is typically used to fluoridate local water supplies is a frequently contaminated chemical byproduct created during the phosphate fertilizer manufacturing process. It's a concentrated, highly toxic chemical riddled with hazardous impurities, making it extremely expensive to safely dispose of when not sold for profit as a water additive. Uranium and radium are two known carcinogens found in fluorosilicic acid used for water fluoridation, and polonium-210 is one of two decay products of uranium. Furthermore, polonium decays into stable lead-206, which also has significant health risks—especially in children—and research has indeed shown that drinking fluoridated water increases lead absorption in your body. Back in 1983, the Deputy Administrator of the EPA Office of Water, Rebecca Hanmer, summarized and defended the EPA's policy on adding toxic fluoride to drinking water in the following manner,10 which is quite telling once you know where the fluoride comes from, and the origins of the idea behind water fluoridation as a public health policy: "In regard to the use of fluosilicic (fluorosilicic) acid as a source of fluoride for fluoridation, this agency regards such use as an ideal environmental solution to a long-standing problem. By recovering by-product fluosilicic acid from fertilizer manufacturing, water and air pollution are minimized, and water utilities have a low-cost source of fluoride available to them." [Emphasis mine]

 Phosphate Fertilizers Also Used in GMO

Agriculture Phosphate fertilizers linked to lung cancer in smoker

 via the route of inhaling the smoke from contaminated tobacco leaves, are also used on food crops. Granted, food-borne polonium may be absorbed and react differently in your body than that in tobacco smoke. Still, as stated by the International Atomic Energy Agency,14 internal exposure, which is more or less the only dangerous form, does occur primarily through food, water, and inhaling contaminated air. So it's possible that you might be exposed to greater levels of this (and other) radioactive elements than was previously thought, through the aggressive use of phosphate fertilizers in food production. While we may not be able to estimate the potential cancer risk from contaminated foods, and GMOs in particular, research has shown that dietary calcium phosphate has a detrimental effect on your gut health. According to a 2002 study in the Journal of Nutrition:15 "Most Gram-positive bacteria are susceptible to the bactericidal action of fatty acids and bile acids. Because dietary calcium phosphate (CaP(i)) lowers the intestinal concentration of these antimicrobial agents, high CaP(i) intake may enhance intestinal colonization of Gram-positive pathogens and the subsequent pathogenesis." Interestingly, the adverse effect of dietary calcium phosphate was found to be dependent on the type of dietary fat consumed. In rats given diets containing corn oil, the calcium phosphate stimulated colonization of pathogenic bacteria, whereas this adverse effect was not found in animals given a diet with milk fat. There are many drawbacks to conventional fertilizers, and radioactive food can perhaps be added to that list (with or without radioactive fallout from Japan, which is a whole other story). While modern agricultural methods may appear to be the most cost effective and efficient strategy at first glance, it quickly becomes one of the most costly ways to produce food once you take into account the environmental and human health consequences. There Are Better Alternatives Modern fertilizer consists of varying amounts of nitrogen (N), phosphorus (P), and potassium (K). But both phosphorus and potassium, neither of which can be synthesized, are becoming increasingly sparse.16 According to the Swedish-run Global Phosphorus Research Initiative,17 we could hit "peak phosphorus" as early as 2030. Without these fertilizer ingredients, the entire world would quickly be in trouble—unless we change our ways, that is. And there are more than a few good reasons for making a U-turn back toward time-tested biological growing methods. Calcium phosphate, mined primarily in the Western Sahara, Saskatchewan or Florida, typically contains polonium and that's the type of NPK fertilizer typically used on tobacco fields. Ammonium phosphate is typically used in the growing of GMO crops, and as mentioned earlier, the toxic byproduct from that process is fluorosilicic acid, used for water fluoridation. Now, it's possible that ammonium phosphate has very little polonium, since it tends to end up in the fluoride (and hence drinking water around the US). But it all has to end up somewhere... As I've started writing about lately, biological agriculture can be profoundly efficient, out-performing virtually any conventional farming strategy, including genetic engineering. I've been implementing organic, biological farming strategies in my own garden, and the leaves on some of my plants, like fruit trees (limes, figs, mango, orange, tangerine, cherries, peach, plum, and banana), have a number of leaves that are literally 300 to 400 percent bigger than the typical leaf of these plants. You wouldn't even imagine that a leaf could grow this big—all without ANY chemicals, just using strategies that optimize soil health, such as using rock dust powders, compost teas and biochar. These strategies seem to maximize the hidden genetic potential of the plants. Sustainable Soil Science to the Rescue Earlier this year, I interviewed Dr. Elaine Ingham, an internationally recognized expert on the benefits of sustainable soil science. I also visited her at her new position at the Rodale Institute in Pennsylvania. According to Dr. Ingham and other soil experts, a key component of successful agriculture lies in having the right helper organisms in the soil; beneficial species of bacteria, fungi, protozoa, beneficial nematodes (not the weedfeeders), microarthropods, and earthworms—all of which contribute to plant growth in a number of different ways. Nutrient cycling is another major issue. According to Dr. Ingham, there's no soil on Earth that lacks the nutrients to grow a plant. She believes the concept that your soil is deficient and needs added phosphorus or nitrogen, etc. in order to grow plants is seriously flawed, and largely orchestrated by the chemical companies, because it's based on looking at the soluble, inorganic nutrients that are partly present in your soil. The real nutrition your plants require is actually derived from microorganisms in the soil. These organisms take the mineral material that's in your soil and convert it into a plant-available form. Without these bioorganisms, your plants cannot get the nutrients they need. So what you need is not more chemical soil additives, what you need is the proper balance of beneficial soil organisms. According to Dr. Ingham: "It's very necessary to have these organisms. They will supply your plant with precisely the right balances of all the nutrients the plant requires. When you start to realize that one of the major roles and functions of life in the soil is to provide nutrients to the plants in the proper forms, then we don't need inorganic fertilizers. We certainly don't have to have genetically engineered plants or to utilize inorganic fertilizers if we get this proper biology back in the soil. If we balance the proper biology, we select against the growth of weeds, so the whole issue with herbicides is done away with. We don't need the herbicides if we can get the proper life back into the soil and select for the growth of the plants that we want to grow and against the growth of the weedy species." Interestingly enough, you can use a starter culture to boost the fermentation and generation of beneficial bacteria much in the same way you can boost the probiotics in your fermented vegetables. For compost, this strategy is used if you want to compost very rapidly. In that case, you can use a starter to inoculate the specific sets of organisms that you need to encourage in that compost. For optimal physical health, you need plant foods to contain the full set of nutrients that will allow the plant to grow in a healthy fashion, because that's the proper balance of nutrients for us human beings as well. Dr. Ingham has written several books on this topic, including The Field Guide for Actively Aerated Compost Tea, and The Compost Tea Brewing Manual.

Blount County Report

January 2012 Report

by Commissioner Jim Folts

Ex-Mayor Cunningham appointed to the PBA Board - The Public Building Authority (PBA) played a key role in issuing nearly $2 billion in variable rate bonds and swaps for Blount County and 38 other East Tennessee counties and municipalities. A fortunate few got a piece of the millions of dollars in fees associated with these bond tranactions.

Over the last decade the Board of the PBA should have been protecting the interests of the citizens. That did not happen. Problems that should have been identified by the Board, went unreported and contributed to our debt mess.

That makes the record of any new PBA Board nominee very important. The nomination of the former Mayor for this position is very problematic. It was his administration that failed to acknowledge the seriousness of the debt problem. It was his administration, which gave millions in fees to the same person who recommended the failed bond deals in the first place. It was his administration that told the Commission the County could pay off its entire debt in 15 years, even when they knew that we already had debt outstanding until 2039. That was a fairy tale. This nomination by Mayor Mitchell is a disappointment and a disservice to the citizens. Only Commissioner Murrell and myself voted against this appointment.

A major new bureaucracy added to County government – The Commission approved a resolution to ask the state legislature to pass a private act that will result in the addition of another bureaucracy to the County government, called the Smoky Mountain Tourism Authority. It is worrisome that no one seemed able to explain why this Authority is needed. The idea of expanding County government in these tough times is bad enough.

The Commission made things worse by approving a poorly written piece of legislation. Here are a few examples of the problems.

1. The act does not spell out the goals and objectives of the Authority. Should we really be creating a new government agency without any goals and objectives spelled out? If I am a business owner adding a tourism tax to my bills, what assurance do I have that this authority will really spend the money to increase tourism?

2. The act says that the Authority is to be funded with the hotel / motel tax. However, it provides for a penalty of only $50 for willful refusal to collect the hotel tax.

3. Only 3 of the 10 directors of this Authority are elected officials. Once this Authority is launched it will be out of the control of elected officials?

4. The act says there will be 10 members of the Board of Directors. Why are ten directors needed to manage the work of “about seven” people? (Bryan Daniels, who supposedly manages the current tourism effort, could not answer when asked for the number of people he had working in tourism. In answer to the multiple questions on the subject, he finally answered “about seven”. (Click here to see the video clip)

5. The act provides for two Directors each from Maryville, Alcoa and Townsend. What if hotels locate in Louisville, Rockford, Friendsville, or the County at large? This law prevents any possibility of them ever having representation on this Board. The last time I looked, taxation without representation was not real popular.

6. The act provides for six year terms for Directors? Four years is good enough for a president, why not for these Directors? In fact the terms are not even six years, since they get to serve until a successor is appointed, no matter how long it takes. Why this strange setup?

7. This act says that the Open Meetings law applies to this authority. But Section 12 of the act seems to violate the open meetings law by permitting meetings to be conducted: “by any means of communication by which all directors participating may simultaneously hear each other “. No provision is made for the public.

8. The act allows this Authority to float fixed or variable rate bonds for up to 40 years, without any limitations based on the life of the asset. This is part of the reason the County got into debt trouble. This also violates our proposed County Debt Policy.

The larger question here is what motivated a Commission, made up entirely of people who claim to be Republicans, to approve a major expansion of County government. Why did they approve this expansion without even stating the goals and objectives of this new authority. Our business owners and citizens are likely to wake up in a few years to find that we have a new bureaucracy paying an Executive Director $405,000 per year, just like the citizens of Knox County recently discovered. I am sad to say I was the only Commissioner to vote against this nonsense.

Approval of a new Letter of Credit for some of the County variable rate bonds – Recent developments in Europe caused one of the County variable rate bond issues to start to unravel. This made it necessary to spend $55,000 in fees to minimize the damage. Even with that expenditure, the costs of this bond will rise more than $30,000 this year. (The Budget and Agenda Committees were erroneously told this transaction would result in savings.) This is yet another warning that the County needs to get out of the $100 million of variable rate debt it still has.

The banker, who put the County into these failed variable rate bond and swap transactions, was involved in this new Letter of Credit. I asked our Mayor and Finance Director to obtain a letter from this person stating that he did not receive any compensation from any parties to this transaction. We don’t need people continuing to profit from the misery of our citizens. So far, the Mayor has not indicated that he will honor my request.

Mayor Mitchell appoints same people to the Budget Committee – Mayor Mitchell appointed the same members to the Budget Committee who failed to cut the budget last year. Get ready for another major tax increase.

Only YOU can change YOUR government.

PLEASE come to the Commission meeting Thursday, February 16th at 7:00pm in Room 430 of the Courthouse.

Fluoridation Causes Crime, Calcifies Soul

Guess what Teflon cookware is made of?


Jay Seaveya
Manchester, NH, USA

SUMMARY: A four-part study explores possible connections between water
fluoridation and crime in America.

Part A, Media-reported crime database and fluoridation, presents an observational database of violent crimes, mostly multiple shootings, and finds an unusually high percentage of them associated with water fluoridation, suggesting the existence of a “fluoride-related” category of crime. A low-end threshold for the toxic effects of fluoridation of 0.3 ppm is identified, and the term “fluoridated” is defined here as having a fluoride level of 0.3 ppm or higher.

In Part B, Online crime database and fluoridation, a published database of year 2000 crime data for 327 US cities over 75,000 population, representing 80 million Americans, was expanded to include fluoridation data for these cities. Water fluoridation was consistently associated with high crime rates at all population levels.

Part C, Book crime database and fluoridation, examines year 2000 crime statistics for six major crimes in the same 327 cities according to their fluoridation status. Cities having natural fluoridation, or which use silicofluorides or sodium fluoride, are shown to have substantially higher crime levels than nonfluoridated cities.

Part D, Lead related crime, quantifies the amount of crime historically associated with lead intoxication, thus identifying a remainder which may be associated with fluorides. This study presents a data-backed hypothesis about one possible cause of crime; it is not a definitive statement about crime causality.

Keywords: Crime; Fluoridation; Fluoride toxicity; Lead toxicity; School shootings; USA.

Fluoride: Calcifier of the Soul

The Discovery

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." Source

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:

Alzheimer Disease
Bipolar Disease
Circadian Dysregulation
Hormone Imbalances: Low Melatonin
Low Back Pain
Parkinson Disease
Sleep Disorders

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 here. 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 here. Lastly, there is research on the potential value of magnesium and phytate in reducing pineal gland calcification which can be viewed here.
