    Pregnenolone vs Progesterone for under developed cognitive function

    I am 23, male. My cognitive function (verbal IQ) is underdeveloped due to my mom being vegan and undereating during pregnancy. I also under eat whilst growing up, was mainly vegetarian. Therefore, I was was wondering if taking for short term either pregnenolone or progesterone would help restore...

    The US postal service (USPS) is apparently a domestic spy agency

    Bizarre...or quite expected? Not sure, but apparently even the lawyer who was reviewing the illegal NSA surveillance program is at a loss to explain why the USPS is involved in domestic surveillance. At least NSA has a legitimate need/interest to do that based on its mission/charter, even though...

    Drop In Mom's Thyroid Levels, Undetectable By Blood Tests, Tanks Child IQ

    I am posting this article mostly for the specific quote corroborating Peat's writing that thyroid blood tests are very unreliable and always have to be interpreted together with other "biomarkers" of thyroid function such as pulse, core temperature, muscle tone, reflexes, etc before a...

    Phytoestrogens Administered At Auschwitz Tanked The IQs Of Children Born Several Years Later

    Jean Jofen tested the IQs of children born to jewish women who had been in Auschwitz during the holocaust and found that they tended to be twenty points lower than the jewish average of 115. She then discovered documents showing that the Nazis attempted to sterilize jews in Auschwitz by feeding...

    Progesterone Use During Pregnancy And The Effects On Child Intelligence

    Since Ray often mentions the anecdotes of children whose mothers have taken progesterone during pregnancy having a significant higher IQ than average, I ask myself whether some of you have used or plan to use progesterone for that purpose too. I myself am now near that age where having children...

    Reversed Evolutuon - Environmental Hormones (documentary French/german)

    A great documentary about why people on average are becoming more and more stupid and how that ties in with environmental toxins, the thyroid and autism . It might not be 100% inline with what peat says but even seeing all those things talked about on mainstream TV is groundbreaking ! I...

    High-intelligence Not Unique To Humans, Is Due To Extended Childhood

    A great new study that confirms many of Peat's writings on the subject. Namely, that it is the brain to body mass ratio that largely determines the intelligence of an organism. Moreover, good nutrition and extended childhood are the main factors in determining the intellectual development of an...

    The (remarkable) Intelligence Of Plants

    I made a few posts in the past about the altruism of plants, as well as their apparent consciousness (affected by anesthesia) despite the fact that they do not have a nervous system. The article below describes additional experiments demonstrating that plants are apparently capable of a number...

    Drinking Fluoridated Water During Pregnancy May Lower IQ (in Sons)

    Another study (the most comprehensive to date) that finds a strong link between pre-natal exposure to fluoride in drinking water and lower intelligence in the offspring. As the article aptly notes, the benefits of fluoride were never proven before it was introduced in drinking water throughout...

    People With More Intellectual Humility Have Superior (general) Knowledge

    A really good study, which may suggest the arrogant "experts" running society are probably a lot less knowledgeable and wise then they would have us believe. The study is also potentially a corroboration of the Dunning-Kruger Effect. So, it looks like it is better to be surrounded by humble...

    Mitochondria (energy) As The Main Driver Of Health, Intelligence, And Aging

    We are finally starting to see Peat enter the mainstream and article like the one below are calling for a complete review of what we know about health and aging and how intelligence is tied to them. As the authors says, or actually borrows from Peat, there is solid evidence that mitochondrial...

    Fluoride At Levels In Tap Water Is As Toxic As Lead And Mercury For The Brain

    Finally some brave souls found the courage to publish a piece of truth. Fluoride is one of the "cornerstones" of public health policy and studies going against the established dogma are very rarely published. Whatever evidence about fluoride's toxicity comes to light is usually explained away...

    Giving Niacinamide To Pregnant Females Greatly Benefits The Offspring

    A few very interesting studies came out in 2018 showing that niacinamide may be very helpful for (pre)-eclampsia, as well as prevent miscarriages and birth defects. Keep in mind that according to mainstream medicine, eclampsia is untreatable and the approach is to have the baby delivered ASAP...

    Every Year, A Penguin Swims Thousands Of Miles To Visit A Man Who Saved Him

    I really liked this story, not only for its feel-good effect, but because it once again illustrates just how intelligent and human-like animals can be. Not to mention that swimming several thousand miles every year, just to be with the person who saved him, flies in the face of all current...

    Leisure And Desire Required For Intelligence, Knowledge And Progress

    As many of you know, back in the 1970s Peat established something called Blake College in Mexico. Its goal was to provide an environment for true learning, free form the the constraints and dogmatism of modern academia driven by commercial and political interests. In one of his articles, Peat...

    Birds Have Oral Traditions Like Humans, Lasting Across Generations

    Yet another study showing that a trait thought to be uniquely human is in fact present in species considered far less intelligent than us. The study below shows that swamp sparrows (and possibly other bird species) are capable of learning culturally local traditions in the form of songs. They...

    IQ Scores Have Been Dropping For Decades And The Reason Is NOT Genetic

    I mentioned in a few other threads about the decline in intelligence and the reversal of the so-called "Flynn Effect" over the last 3-4 decades. Flynn effect - Wikipedia A few users commented that the drop in IQ (and SAT) scores is due to simply more people taking the tests and thus lowering...

    World IQ Scores Are Declining

    Peat mentioned in one of his recent interviews that the population has been getting dumber as a result of PUFA overexposure. I posted a few studies on declining grip strength, sperm counts, and T levels all of which are good surrogates for general health. However, the most sensitive biomarker of...

    Intelligent People More Likely To Suffer From Mental Illness

    I have mentioned a few times on the forum that in the "psychiatric bible" DSM IV/V a good mental health is characterized by a mild to moderate delusion, while realism is characterized by a mild to moderate depression. Peat said a few times that people with high IQ have a hard time adjusting to...

    Fluoride Exposure (in Utero) Lowers IQ

    The news against fluride just keep on coming. Some states in the USA have started legislation to remove fluoride from drinking water. In response, the federal government is threatening to withhold emergency and disaster-relief funding. I wonder why... Fluoride exposure in utero linked to lower...
