In the first half, Paul Connett, Executive Director of the Fluoride Action Network, weighed in on the controversial debate over fluoridating the water supply. Applied topically via toothpaste, fluoride might help in fighting dental decay, he conceded, though when it's consumed via drinking water it's toxic to the human body. Mother's milk has a natural filter lowering exposure to fluoride, but babies fed formula in a city like Los Angeles are getting about 200 times more fluoride than those who are nursed, he cited. Some 53 out of 60 studies showed that kids with higher fluoride exposure have lower IQs, he added. A 12-year study from the US government published in 2017 measured the level of fluoride in pregnant women, and then the IQs of their offspring over time, and confirmed this conclusion.
He cautioned that pregnant women should avoid any source of fluoride while carrying their child. Fluoride can interfere with all types of biological systems, he continued. "Nobel laureates in enzyme chemistry oppose fluoridation in the United States," Connett stated. "It is the least scientific public health practice of all time," he believes, in contrast to the Oral Health division of the CDC, who declares fluoridation to be one of the top ten public health achievements of the 20th century. 50% of fluoride goes into the bones, he reported, and the first symptoms of skeletal fluorosis (especially seen in countries with high natural fluoride levels) is arthritis. Public health people are more interested in protecting fluoridation interests rather than protecting the health of the public, he lamented.
Expert in secret societies and symbolic language systems in art and architecture, Frank Albo, holds graduate degrees in ancient Near Eastern languages, Western esotericism, and a Ph.D. in the history of architecture. In the latter half, he delved into hidden symbols and codes, the practices of Freemasonry, the Western Mystery Tradition, and the bizarre city of Astana, hailed as the "Illuminati Capital of the World." Stemming from Freemasonry is the idea that certain types of knowledge are so sacred and important that they cannot be freely given to the profane but have to "go through an initiatic system from master to disciple," he detailed. What was this forbidden knowledge? Albo explained it's that "the mind, this divine spark of reason, has the capacity to read the book of nature and all the mysteries within."
The Western Mystery Tradition refers to a variety of currents, which point out that true knowledge can only be obtained through gnosis – an inner intuition that leads to salvation. These currents, he noted, include such things as alchemy, Kabbalah, Theosophy, astrology, spiritualism, ceremonial magic, and a body of wisdom called Hermeticism (said to come from ancient Egypt). Geometry in the Masonic mind is like a touchstone of divine power, he continued, and there are various proportions, degrees, and symbols such as two interlocked circles (vesica piscis) which relate to universal principles. Albo announced that he'll be giving away a free copy of his book to the first person who correctly solves a puzzle he is posting on his Instagram feed.
