You're brain needs good natural food. That's just fact and common sense.


Someone who eats raw fruit and veg is going to be healthier than someone who eats processed GM food. Their brian is going to be healthier for it as well and that means it will work better.

We are just like machines and when you don't lubricate a machine or give it good oil it's not going to be as healthy and perform at it's best. That's just common sense.


As for floride, I stopped using toothpaste with floride and damn... Huge difference in awareness.

When the power of love overcomes the love of power, the world will know peace.

Like all living creatures we seek to avoid pain and suffering, to evade death, and we have come to rely on our extraordinary technology to do so. Yet, in this reliance there has emerged a sense of entitlement with the expectation of immediate gratification without the dutiful pain and time that is indeed are more reflective of reality. Have we become self-indulgent and near-sighted, pampering ourselves at the expense of creativity, perseverance, risk-taking, and dutiful commitment to mindfully advancing our civilization. Is it that we have made our lives so complicated that we find simplicity is so rarely understood?

I agree with you on that completely, you took works right out of my mouth
As we know that evolution takes thousands of years and we may someday evolve to fight these forms of chemicals in our bodies.
Meanwhile we are exposed to these kinds to things that supposedly decrease IQ by causing mutations (and hormonal dis-balance and blood glucose level swings which in turns causes mood swings and what not).
Some people won't be effected because their body may have adapted to counter certain chemicals,

I closely try to follow the life style that Coffey is trying to explain here and trust me its not easy.
Foods free of HFCS are expensive and organic foods are also more expensive. (I know the so called government should care about us :P lol and provide subsidies to these things, if they get free from lobbying and giving money to the rich)

Back to the point, it kind of difficult to not to be exposed to all these chemicals but one can assure that one's child in his/her growing age gets proper nutrition free from all these things so that during those crucial moments when the brain is developing so that there is no permanent harm to the brain.

It's the flouride, aspartame, pthalates, and high fructose corn syrup making everyone retarded. Hormone imbalance, lack of sleep, lack of essential minerals and nutrients starves your brain over time.

Impossible, intelligence follows the same ideology as matter... it can not be created nor destroyed, but simply adapt into a different state than what it already maybe be.

Yeah I did. This will sound kinda wierd but I stopped wanting things as much. LOL Like from adverts and things. I also felt my head was less blocked, but I did kinda feel withdrawel where i went kinda low for a bit.

Is your water supply got floride though? Cause I know my area hasn't got floride in it, luckily.

I compeltely agree with the goverment should be helping us. Food stamps/vouchers towards fresh fruit and veg or soemhting like that should be brought in, or the goverment paying those who grow natural organic fruit and veg a certina amount so they don't charge so much for it.

It's really difficult to stick to that diet because of money.

If the average person is becoming less intelligent it is also because our lives are becoming easier and we require less thought to successfully navigate our way through life. I believe there are still great advances to come in our intelligence but they will not come with our current systems of education.

Combine this with the world of misinformation that the internet now throws at us and what do you expect, I wonder how long it will be before teachers are replaced with Conspiracy Theory videos on YouTube.

Assuming the article is correct in it headline there is a lot more to this than what we intake.

I've flown from one side of this galaxy to the other. I've seen a lot of strange stuff, but I've never seen anything to make me believe there's one all-powerful Force controlling everything. There's no mystical energy field that controls my destiny. Anyway, it's all a lot of simple tricks and nonsense.

Vitamins K and K2 supposedly negates subsequent calcium build up in the body's tissues (glandular) as a result of flouride accumulation. If you stop using flouride, that may only be half the battle.

If you brought someone back from a thousand years ago you could teach them to drive a car. Its just a matter of teaching.

Here's a couple of videos that I like to share from time to time(I will attach them to the end of the post)...I agree, the level of education and the capacity for critical thinking is not what it used to be.  Is it intentional or is it a by product of a technologically advancing society.  I have noticed myself how people are becoming more and more..."savant like" (I just made that phrase up!)in their education...people will be absolute experts in a particular field and be dumb as a bag of hammers in another...there is a loss of balance.  I know a young fellow that can write programs for almost anything but if you ask him about history, economics, art, etc...he is lost...stunning to me.

When I went to school, we had to have a balanced education...we got dosed with a little bit of everything...we were taught how to solve problems, analyze the known variables and extrapolate patterns...I don't think they do that anymore.

One occasion I have to use as an example...blew me away.  This was from a high school senior...from a school that won the national silver award for academic excellence....My daughter had several of her friends over at the house and I was watching a show about the universe...they mentioned something on the show about the Milky Way...Andromeda and made a statement about the billions of galaxies in the Universe.  This young lady stopped and looked at me and said "There is really all those stars and planets out there?"  and I said "yes, far more than we can actually count so they estimate"...her response floored me "I had no idea there was other places like ours out there...that is soo cool"....I thought/....wtf?  So I asked "Do they not teach anything about astronomy in your science classes?"  Another kid popped around the corner and said "No, not really, they told us if we were interested in that we could find it on the internet"...

How is that for your tax dollars at work?  Not even bothering to try and create interest in a fascinating subject...a field begging for bright minds to staff the next stage of exploration....wonderful isn't it?

From what I've seen first hand with the 3 American public shools my step son has been in, there is a severe lack in the education of American history. These kids didn't even know about Franklin's kite expirement (from a conversation we had about electricity) and miscellaneous other topics we learned when we were kids. I mean come on, it's just ridiculous. I'm just glad my step son is naturally inquisitive in nearly all areas of science, mathematics, and history, he isn't learning anything relevant about these topics at school.

Ask almost anyone 30 or younger...maybe even 40...why we fought the Civil war....I can almost promise you that 90% will say it was fought over slavery.  It's a great notion...that the wonderful "union" was so concerned with humanity and right from wrong...but the truth is...the Civil War was not started over slavery...Lincoln made it an issue well into the conflict to garner northern support about the same time Robert E. Lee was handing the north their ass in battles....truth.  Lincoln's emancipation happened well after the war was underway...slavery is NOT why the civil war began...but this is what is being taught today.

Look...I completely understand the humanity of emancipation...I think it was a wonderful and long overdue thing...but...we must leave history alone.  Let it stand for what it is...truth.  It disturbs me deeply ...this process of re-writing the subtle facts of history...nothing good can come from hiding the truth...

Back to the point, it

That is completely relevent imo.. :tu:
A virus/sickness spreads by replicating it's self and spreading it's infection..
now...............take that up a few levels to conscious reasoning and what you have is a sickness of society that spreads by replicating it's self and spreading it's infection at a sub-conscious level... Sickness as in these moronic thought streams that allow this to happen. This is what I mean by sickness of society at a civilisation level.. These Moron lobbyists working on the funding of big corporations are part of the infectious disease that is robbing us of our awareness. What is good for society is being neglected for what is profitable.. as a result....... we're being dumbed down...

This is quite true, apart from the impossible bit..
intelligence, like a muscle, needs exersize.. without which, the muscle suffers atrophy..
