Soil fertility makes a nation happy

Funny how nature do that.

Antidepressant Microbes In Soil: How Dirt Makes You Happy

“Soil microbes have been found to have similar effects on the brain and are without side effects and chemical dependency potential.”
“Did you know that there’s a natural antidepressant in soil? It’s true. Mycobacterium vaccae is the substance under study and has indeed been found to mirror the effect on neurons that drugs like Prozac provide. The bacterium is found in soil and may stimulate serotonin production, which makes you relaxed and happier. Studies were conducted on cancer patients and they reported a better quality of life and less stress. Lack of serotonin has been linked to depression, anxiety, obsessive compulsive disorder and bipolar problems.

Let kids play in dirt!

(Deport the people who’d attack kids playing outside!)

The bacterium appears to be a natural antidepressant in soil and has no adverse health effects. These antidepressant microbes in soil may be as easy to use as just playing in the dirt. Most avid gardeners will tell you that their landscape is their “happy place” and the actual physical act of gardening is a stress reducer and mood lifter. The fact that there is some science behind it adds additional credibility to these garden addicts’ claims.

They were already credible since all mood is self-reported.

But okay.

The presence of a soil bacteria antidepressant is not a surprise to many of us who have experienced the phenomenon ourselves. Backing it up with science is fascinating, but not shocking, to the happy gardener. Mycobacterium antidepressant microbes in soil are also being investigated for improving cognitive function, Crohn’s disease and even rheumatoid arthritis.”

Why were the WW2 generation and prior so intelligent?

This is why things like scrubbed, sterilised food and the cozy air conditioned gym are so decadent – go outside and dig a fucking trench, you lazy worm.

There’s also a reason all soldiers worth their salt train outside. You’re not just learning the motions and showing off to a bunch of anorexic fags, you learn to move in the elements.

Gyms are for lightweights, the ancients considered them gay brothels but an alarming number of straight men bought the instawhore propaganda that so much homoerotic body obsession is manly and women like it.

Nooooooooooo.

omnia vanitas, I picture above every gym

It’s so anti-traditional, hostile to logic and artificial.

Show me one feminine woman ‘training’ in a gym. Go ahead. Doesn’t happen. Women know better, to be useful when expending our fewer calories. Ideally making money with your labour instead of straight up time wasting on asscheek validation. Very nice, move on with your life. It’s a climate controlled wimpy environment. If a slight breeze or downpour throws you off, you’re basically a child. The bulk fools nobody. The climate also demands a response, keeping all those twitch muscle fibres and instinctive movements attuned to the real world, not snowflake air conditioned HPV bench land. The HPV must be thick in the air in some places, thanks air con!

Meanwhile, nature:

“Antidepressant microbes in soil cause cytokine levels to rise, which results in the production of higher levels of serotonin. The bacterium was tested both by injection and ingestion on rats, and the results were increased cognitive ability, lower stress and better concentration on tasks than a control group.

Some of the most brittle people you’ll ever meet are broflakes who ‘missed’ their baby protein shake, it’s hilarious. Like soyboys and their burnt Starbucks excuse for a ‘coffee’. Why not suck it all from a giant titty cup and stop kidding yourself? Freud would love this. Talk about oral fixation.

Gardeners inhale the bacteria, have topical contact with it and get it into their bloodstreams when there is a cut or other pathway for infection. The natural effects of the soil bacteria antidepressant can be felt for up to 3 weeks if the experiments with rats are any indication. So get out and play in the dirt and improve your mood and your life.”

I’m tired of tolerating excuses from adults to stay indoors like you’re all afraid of nature. But oh yeah, your ‘guns’ are gonna save you in the Apocalypse, alright…

God forbid a plant scratches you though, you take a dive like a French football team and start sobbing manly tears of gym strength.

It’s unnatural to perform naturally outdoor hobbies indoors. Previously, that was confined to hospital gyms for the elderly. It’s a con. Go outside and stop hoovering up SSRIs and talking about gym endorphins. You’re there for the beauty pageant of closeted poofs. Muh gains, brah. Don’t bother growing a single fucking tomato with all those wasted calories. The gym is manual labour you pay to do.

SSRIs are anger management pills

http://www.pnas.org/content/94/11/5939.full

The amine serotonin [5-hydroxytryptamine creatinine sulfate complex (5HT)] has been linked to aggression in a wide and diverse range of species, including humans (1720). The nature of the linkage, however, is not simple, and it has proven difficult to unravel the role of the amine in the behavior. In vertebrates, lowered levels of 5HT (endogenous or experimentally induced) or changes in amine neuron function that lower the effectiveness of serotonergic neurons generally correlate with increased levels of aggression (1920) whereas in invertebrates, the converse is believed to be true (1113). Genetic alterations of amine neuron function also can change aggressive behavior in animals (2124) and in people (2527) although, again, in most cases, it is not clear how the genetic change is linked to the behavior. For example, in humans, a mutation leading to inactivation of one form of the enzyme monoamine oxidase leads to a particular form of explosive violent behavior (2627). Because this enzyme is believed to be involved in further metabolism or inactivation of amines, this defect should result in elevated levels of amines, as has been seen in a knockout mutation of the monoamine oxidase enzyme in mice (21). The behavioral manifestation, however, is that generally thought to be associated with lowered levels of 5HT. Finally, direct injections of amines like 5HT into animals also cause changes in aggression, but even here the relationships are complex. For example, in ants, injections of 5HT and its precursors lower interspecific aggressiveness toward intruders but raises intraspecies aggression (2829).

They don’t help with “most people”

https://www.spring.org.uk/2008/02/new-study-ssri-antidepressants-dont.php

A new study published today is sure to set off another storm in the ongoing debate about the widespread prescription of antidepressants. Professor Irving Kirsch at the University of Hull and colleagues in the US and Canada report that new generation ‘SSRI’ antidepressants like Prozac or Seroxat mostly fall, “below the recommended criteria for clinical significance” (Kirsch et al. 2008). In other words, the most modern drugs prescribed for depression generally don’t work.

 The study was particularly interested in whether the drugs had different effects on people with different levels of depression. Here is what they found:
  • Mild depression: not tested as mild depression is usually treated with a ‘talk therapy’ rather than antidepressants.
  • Moderate depression: antidepressants made “virtually no difference”.
  • Severe depression: antidepressants had a “small and clinically insignificant” effect.
  • Most severe depression: antidepressants had a significant clinical benefit – but see below…

Antidepressant treatments and human aggression

We need more studies on that.

Aggressive behaviour is associated with negative mood and poor impulse control. Serotonin has been specifically associated with impulse regulation and deficiencies in serotonin have been linked to impulsive aggression.

Or they could learn impulse control, like previous generations.

However, aggression occurs in a social context and noradrenaline has been implicated in social motivation. Both serotonergic and noradrenergic antidepressants may therefore be effective in reducing aggression. The evidence for the effects of antidepressants on aggression comes from a wide range of sources but there are few controlled trials or experimental studies. Current findings point to decreases in negative mood and anger attacks and positive changes in personality traits after antidepressant treatment.

fake changes

never letting them suffer, learn, grow and improve

no character development whatsoever

forced immaturity

Clinical studies in personality disorder patients have shown some efficacy for serotonergic antidepressants in reducing irritability and impulsive aggression. Experimental work in healthy volunteers has shown both serotonergic and noradrenergic antidepressants to increase assertiveness and affiliative behaviour. Both may therefore decrease aggression through different routes.

Not the same thing.

Asking your boss for a raise is different than threatening him if he doesn’t.

http://www.dana.org/Publications/Brainwork/Details.aspx?id=43750

Now, researchers at Cambridge University and UCLA have found that serotonin also plays a critical role in regulating emotions such as impulsive aggression during social decision making.

SSRI patients are still making self-destructive life choices.
It’s a band aid on a broken leg!

Impulsive aggression is the tendency to respond with hostility or aggression when faced with serious frustration.

character flaw

The researchers believe their results suggest that serotonin plays a critical role in social decision making by normally keeping aggressive social responses in check.

See: angry vegans.

Under normal circumstances, serotonin works in the frontal areas of the brain to inhibit the firing of the amygdala, the almond-shaped structure that controls fear, anger and other emotional responses.

Studies in animals have implicated the amygdala in emotional and social behaviours, especially those related to fear and aggression. Although lesion and functional imaging studies in humans have demonstrated the amygdala’s participation in recognizing emotional facial expressions, its role in human social behaviour has remained unclear. We report here our investigation into the hypothesis that the human amygdala is required for accurate social judgments of other individuals on the basis of their facial appearance. We asked three subjects with complete bilateral amygdala damage to judge faces of unfamiliar people with respect to two attributes important in real-life social encounters: approachability and trustworthiness. All three subjects judged unfamiliar individuals to be more approachable and more trustworthy than did control subjects.The impairment was most striking for faces to which normal subjects assign the most negative ratings: unapproachable and untrustworthy looking individuals. Additional investigations revealed that the impairment does not extend to judging verbal descriptions of people. The amygdala appears to be an important component of the neural systems that help retrieve socially relevant knowledge on the basis of facial appearance.

Basolateral amygdala and orbitofrontal cortex are implicated in cue-outcome learning. In this issue of Neuron, Schoenbaum et al. show that, following basolateral amygdala lesions, cue-selective neurons in orbitofrontal cortex are more sensory driven and less sensitive to the motivational value of an outcome, suggesting that predictive value coding in orbitofrontal cortex is dependent on input from basolateral amygdala.

By making your brain happy, you make it dumber.

It’s the illusion of safety. Your body assumes the threat is dead.

Your body also produces less of a thing when you supplement. Basic biology.
So men and women shouldn’t take any sex hormones unless they produce zero.

If your levels are normal (for your AGE, Peter Pan), you’re poisoning yourself.

https://www.nature.com/scitable/blog/cognoculture/testosterone_and_human_aggression_or_180520

 Yet others still have suggested that hypogonadal males (a.k.a low testosterone-producing males) who had their testosterone increased saw no jump in aggressive behaviour, and in fact became more friendly, energetic and, well, happy.

Cucks.

If you’re being treated badly, the chemical suffering is vital to fixing that. It’s like cutting off nerves, they’ve deadened their sense of injustice.

Notice how when men get power, they become over-friendly and obliging?

Ah, they say, but wouldn’t this also occur in women?

 The result: the women who had received testosterone without knowing became fairer, more generous and had increased efficiency in social interactions, while the other group (those who had been told that they were receiving testosterone) behaved much more unfairly. In sum: one group acted they way they thought testosterone should affect humans (and it wasn’t pretty). But the reality was much different. Case and point, ladies and gentlemen.

Notice how many pathological altruist women are high-T? And middle-class?

You’re buying the chemical fake equivalent of class. I cannot think of anything more indicative of a loser.

I used to think it was the broke guy with a sportscar.

If anyone’s doping T, it should be women. It makes us nicer and better looking. When we produce less naturally, no loss.

It’s always the “inferior” men who abuse women, isn’t it? They seem to be lacking in T.
In civilization, status is conferred to men who cooperate. Killers get wiped out quickly.

Well, if you damage your nervous system, it’s almost impossible to repair.

All vegans must supplement.

https://www.vegansociety.com/resources/nutrition-and-health/nutrients/vitamin-b12/what-every-vegan-should-know-about-vitamin-b12

Claimed sources of B12 that have been shown through direct studies of vegans to be inadequate include human gut bacteria, spirulina, dried nori, barley grass and most other seaweeds. Several studies of raw food vegans have shown that raw food offers no special protection.

Symptoms of deficiency

Infants typically show more rapid onset of symptoms than adults. B12 deficiency may lead to loss of energy and appetite and failure to thrive. If not promptly corrected this can progress to coma or death. Again there is no entirely consistent pattern of symptoms. Infants are more vulnerable to permanent damage than adults. Some make a full recovery, but others show retarded development.

Failure to thrive is a PC term for retardation, retarded growth.

In adults typical deficiency symptoms include loss of energy, tingling, numbness, reduced sensitivity to pain or pressure, blurred vision, abnormal gait, sore tongue, poor memory, confusion, hallucinations and personality changes. Often these symptoms develop gradually over several months to a year before being recognised as being due to B12 deficiency and they are usually reversible on administration of B12. There is however no entirely consistent and reliable set of symptoms and there are cases of permanent damage in adults from B12 deficiency. 

Those are symptoms in common with the brain damage of starvation.

It has long been known that B12 is vital for nerves to work properly, and it is only found in animal sources of food, not in plants. While it is made by our gut bacteria, it can only be absorbed in combination with something called intrinsic factor at the upper part of our intestines, so the B12 made in our colon by our gut bacteria is not metabolically useful.

All B12 supplements must come from animal sources.

signs of nerve death like numbness and tingling in the fingers and toes. However, its become clear that other symptoms of B12 deficiency can precede these classic medical findings, including depression and anxiety.

Of special interest is that brain levels of B12 do not necessarily match up with blood levels of B12.

They’re prematurely aging themselves.

In any event, brain levels of methylB12 (an active form of B12) plummet with age from 20 year-olds to 60 year olds. Also, methylB12 levels in those diagnosed with autismor schizophrenia were 1/3 those of age-matched controls, meaning B12 just wasn’t as active in the brain of those patients.

While you could be experiencing these symptoms due to Alzheimer’s or another dementia, it’s also possible that your symptoms could be related to low levels of vitamin B12.

Several studies have been conducted to establish the link between vitamin B12 and Alzheimer’s. Some, such as the study highlighted here, associate low B12 levels with both the symptoms of Alzheimer’s and actual atrophy (shrinkage) of the brain.

You’re not supposed to take them unless you’re actually depressed.

The overdiagnosis problem is not a matter of theory, it’s a question of brain-damaging people with the blues.

And they don’t actually prevent suicide if you look at outcomes.
By rigging the chemistry, they can actually make it likelier, since the brain tries to compensate for the drugs.

http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/2016/10/12/rows-over-study-which-claims-antidepressants-double-suicide-risk/

Researchers behind the Danish review said the study demolished “potentially lethal misconceptions” about the safety of the drugs, which are taken by more than 4 million Britons a year.

The analysis examined 13 studies, to see what impact the drugs had on patients who did not suffer from depression.

Scientists said these patients were selected, because previous studies linking suicide and antidepressants had been dismissed by those who said the deaths must have been caused by the mental health condition, rather than the pills.

…Prof Peter Gotzsche, of the Nordic Cochrane Centre, said such feelings could be considered as “precursors to suicidality or violence”

I suggest there’s a difference in effect on men and women.
This would explain the male suicide rate and homicide risk.

It’s almost like the brain is a complex organ and you shouldn’t fuck with it.

The serotonin imbalance hypothesis of depression wasn’t even right. It’s been shown as completely wrong – and you can have excess serotonin problems too. There’s no evidence in humans for serotonin deficiency, and even then, most serotonin is produced in the gut so it’s really a microbiome issue. #biology101 Naturally, insurance doesn’t pay as much for that as psychiatric meds.

There is an association of homicide with mental disorder, most particularly with certain manifestations of schizophrenia, antisocial personality disorder and drug or alcohol abuse. However, it is not clear why some patients behave violently and others do not. Studies of people convicted of homicide have used different definitions of mental disorder…..

Mental disease is the original non-PC term for ‘mental illness’.
TBF NAKALT… wait….

According to the definition of Hodgins, only 15% of murderers have a major mental disorder (schizophrenia, paranoia, melancholia).

Mental disorder increases the risk of homicidal violence by two-fold in men and six-fold in women.

Schizophrenia increases the risk of violence by six to 10-fold in men and eight to 10-fold in women.

“serotonin syndrome.” This presents as twitching, tremors, rigidity,

inhibitors (SNRIs) also may cause serotonin syndrome by
interactions

of the first murder/suicides attributed to any SSRI. In the same year
Joseph Wesbecker killed eight others and himself in a Louisville,
Ky., printing plant where he worked, after 4 weeks on fluoxetine.
Yet as early as 1986, clinical trials showed a rate of 12.5 suicides per
1,000 subjects on fluoxetine vs. 3.8 on older non-SSRIs vs. 2.5 on
placebo!An internal 1985 Lilly document found even worse results
and said that benefits were less than risks. Such documents were
released into the public domain by Lilly as part of the settlement in
the Wesbecker case. Fifteen more “anecdotes” of murder/suicide,

Study: Serotonin theory of depression wrong (antidepressants v placebo)

http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC4172306/

The serotonin theory is as close as any theory in the history of science to having been proved wrong. Instead of curing depression, popular antidepressants may induce a biological vulnerability making people more likely to become depressed in the future.

However, the overdiagnosis problem means that what we call ‘mild depression’ might just be the regular human blues and resolve itself.

Serotonin mediates decision-making and affects arousal response (anger)

Study 1: https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC2504725/

People with higher (normal) levels were played for suckers in a negotiation game, trusting and took plenty of offers, good and bad. It’s like they were doped happy and were easygoing about the result. People with lower levels (associated in drinking with recklessness, possible violence and increased libido) were strategic, patient and took the good offers (for in-game resources). It suggests an effect on planning and time preference.

Study 2: http://www.cam.ac.uk/research/news/serotonin-levels-affect-the-brain%E2%80%99s-response-to-anger

For the study, healthy volunteers’ serotonin levels were altered by manipulating their diet.

The preppers are right about the psychological implications of mild to moderate starvation. If it doesn’t affect you, it’ll seem unpredictable in those around you. Granny will knife you for a tin of beans. This is the brain’s natural state, modern 21st century fat and happy is bread and circuses.

The research revealed that low brain serotonin made communications between specific brain regions of the emotional limbic system of the brain (a structure called the amygdala) and the frontal lobes weaker compared to those present under normal levels of serotonin. The findings suggest that when serotonin levels are low, it may be more difficult for the prefrontal cortex to control emotional responses to anger that are generated within the amygdala.

Logic switches off. You get roid rage.

Using a personality questionnaire, they also determined which individuals have a natural tendency to behave aggressively. In these individuals, the communications between the amygdala and the prefrontal cortex was even weaker following serotonin depletion.

This might explain what’s happening to the K-types in Europe.

“Although these results came from healthy volunteers, they are also relevant for a broad range of psychiatric disorders in which violence is a common problem. For example, these results may help to explain the brain mechanisms of a psychiatric disorder known as intermittent explosive disorder (IED). Individuals with IED typically show intense, extreme and uncontrollable outbursts of violence which may be triggered by cues of provocation such as a facial expression of anger.

The usual suspects, fat and happy ‘victim groups’ causing trouble, rioting and protesting, are in for quite a shock if they keep pushing it. It makes you happier to commit violence, but a lesser known effect is it alters the memory patterns of PTSD affecting formation and recovery. This is genetic.

…This same gene variant increases the activation of an emotion control center in the brain, the amygdala…..

Feeling emasculated leads to violence: http://psychcentral.com/news/2015/08/26/perception-of-low-masculinity-may-lead-to-violence/91374.html but by all means, continue to scream in the native’s faces.

Why do I link these?

Well, I believe the reason for r/K shifts is the serotonin functioning within the amygdala. If the gut-brain axis can be affected in it by everything from neonatal levels (that can cause SIDS or on the other end, boost learning ability) to child abuse (yep, the stress of it can cause adult health issues via serotonin), then a local effect on the brain is easily understood. This ties into the fact many people are on SSRIs despite recent findings saying that as many as 2/3 of people on antidepressants don’t need them (for depression, which they don’t have). It could be self-medication for seeing the world as it is (depressives have the most realistic perception) and relate to subtle suicide, a pattern of self-destructiveness that ties in well to recent ‘culture’: http://blogs.psychcentral.com/nlp/2015/11/subtle-suicide/ by smoking, drinking, eating too much (and presumably, recklessly sleeping around, risking HIV and cancers).

SSRIs can be given as treatment for self-proclaimed ‘anxiety’ (many feminists are on them) but take a look at the symptoms of too much;

Mild symptoms may consist of increased heart rate, shivering, sweating, dilated pupils, myoclonus (intermittent jerking or twitching), as well as overresponsive reflexes.

Yeah, the anxiety drugs might be giving them the symptoms OF anxiety.

oh no oh dear hides facepalm double

P.S. ‘Social anxiety’ aka being a pussy and refusing to learn the rules, is related to high serotonin: http://articles.mercola.com/sites/articles/archive/2015/07/02/social-anxiety-disorder.aspx

At best, antidepressants are comparable to placebos. At worst they can cause devastating side effects, including deterioration into more serious mental illness, and suicidal or homicidal tendencies.

I love how flippantly they write this. Sure, hand them out like candy.

Virtually all of the school and mass shooters, for example, have been on antidepressants. Antidepressants are also prescribed to pregnant women, which can have serious repercussions for the child.

yup damon ian somerhalder vampire diaries hot duh yes uhuh

Those with social anxiety? They’re too comfortable.

Previous studies have revealed that increased nerve activity in the amygdala is part of the underlying mechanism that produces anxiety.
