Ear Rocks & Brain Sand
Re: Does fluoride calcify the pineal gland?
No way, no day, René. Exactly the opposite.
That’s an Old Doctors’ Tale that’s been commandeered by the New Age Facebook community.
Fluoride causes “a decrease in the availability of free calcium ions in the mineralization environment.”
That’s fancy beaker boy-speak for decalcification.
Pineal fluorosis is the same as dental fluorosis — hypomineralization, not hypermineralization.
Fluoridated water is especially unhealthy for children.
According to the CDC (Center for Disease Control) …
“Prevalence of dental fluorosis was higher among younger persons and ranged from 41% among adolescents aged 12-15 to 9% among adults aged 40-49.”
That’s not a misprint. It really is 41 percent.
No such measurements (to my knowledge) are available for the pineal gland, but children are vulnerable.
What a perfect way to dumb down children — damage their major transducer between circadian rhythms and the circulation of the blood.
Only the kidneys have a greater blood supply than the pineal gland.
Josephine Arendt (Melatonin and the Mammalian Pineal Gland, 1995) wrote …
“The pineals of many species contain calcified lumps or concretions. In humans it has generally been considered a feature of adult, or at least postpubertal pineals, as assessed by radiological studies. In fact, calcification is probably initiated in early life and is present in very fine granules undetectable by radiography. It appears to take place in ‘ground substance’ which is thought to be secreted by pinealocytes and is present in both parenchymal cells and in intercellular tissue (Tapp, 1979). It may be an index of past secretory activity: denervation of the gerbil pineal leads to decreased calcification.”

According to the same source …
“Interestingly, calcified masses usually consist of concentric layers of material infiltrated by a number of minerals. It has been suggested that the rhythmic metabolic activity of the pineal is responsible for the ring formation — but whether rings are laid down daily, yearly, or with other periodicities is unknown. There is no evidence that the presence of calcification leads to degeneration of pineal cells and metabolic activity (at least melatonin formation) within the gland of adult humans is not related to quantity of calcification. It is nevertheless possible that in the young, calcification has an important physiological role.”
One “important physiological role” is the formation of “brain sand.”
It’s the counterpart of “ear rocks” (otoliths), which act like crystal radios, especially sensitive to near-field sound waves.
So maybe the Third Eye is also a Third Ear?
The otoliths of the inner ear also respond to linear acceleration and gravity.
Does the Third Eye/Ear have anything to do with balance and equilibrium?
After all, it’s been proven that melatonin influences human balance.
Brain sand accumulates various minerals, including the toxic ones.
A pineal analysis would probably be more accurate than a hair analysis, especially because it’s on the south side of the blood brain barrier.
But it’s far less invasive to snip off a clump of hair than slice off a segment of pineal gland.
