Antidepressant Microbes In Soil:
How Soil Makes Your Brain Happy

Soil microbes have been found to have similar effects on the brain as prozac, without the negative side effects and potential for chemical dependency and withdrawal.

The soil microbe mycobacterium vaccae has been found to mirror the effect on neurons in the brain that drugs like Prozac can provide, but without side effects.
The way it works is the “happy” microbes in soil cause cytokine levels to rise, which leads to the production of more serotonin.

This bacterium is found in healthy soil and when humans are exposed to it, the microbe stimulates serotonin production. Serotonin makes us feel relaxed and happier. Conversely, lack of serotonin has been linked to depression, anxiety, OCD, and bipolar disorders. Some studies on cancer patients have demonstrated better quality of life and less stress when patients were given mycobacterium vaccae.

Scientists also tested the microbe via injection and ingestion on rats and compared results to a control group. They found that cognitive ability, lower stress, and better concentration were notable benefits that lasted 3 weeks time.

Mycobacterium antidepressant microbes in soil are also being investigated for improving cognitive function, Crohn’s disease, and even rheumatoid arthritis. Farmers and gardeners come in contact with this bacterium by having topical contact with it, inhaling it, and getting it into their bloodstreams when they have small cuts or other pathways for infection.


Reminds me of that one wizard who posted about how fecal transplant is the key to curing depression. Go ahead OP, go play in the dirt and tell us how you feel afterwards.

oh look yet another post linking to some random scientific study


He's not even linking to anything.


(gotta love the title)

Finally, Lowry and his colleagues studied another set of mice, who were subjected to a stress-response test. They dropped each mouse into water for five minutes and timed how long it would take the animal to switch from active swimming to passive floating. Control mice swam for an average of two and a half minutes, while the M. vaccae–injected animals paddled for four. Researchers already know that antidepressants increase active swimming and decrease immobility. The bacteria “had the exact same effect as antidepressant drugs,” Lowry explains.

This is how they study antidepressants. That explains a lot really. It doesn't make you happy, it just makes you able to keep going in hopeless situations full of pain and agony. They're creating the perfect pills to create perfect little slaves for the corporations.



Looks like a dire situation


Maybe thats why to Africans eating mud pies keep living their ways

This reminds me of Amou Haji. Remember him?


damn it's been 6 years snce that. he's probably dead


What makes you think he's dead? He'd been living like that for a long time already.


Indeed, the latest I could find was that he was at least still alive at 85 years old last year. Little to no new info besides updated age, that he started this when he was 20 and some quip at the end that he is "looking for love". But he may still be around, and he appears to be in relatively good health. Both of my grandfathers in the first world nations died before 70, that's anecdotal as fuck of course but this dude has been smoking animal shit, chuffin back five cigs at a time, eating rotten porcupine, living in dirt outside never bathing for 65+ years; perhaps real simple happiness-which can come from utterly rejecting society-can be more important than cleanliness and materialism to longevity.


Just goes to show longevity is a massive roll of the dice. This guy lives to 85 smoking animal shit and living in filth and some health fanatic could get hit in a car crash at age 38.


Is this what surrendering to a higher power looks like?


>e believes cleanliness brings him sickness.
>when asked to eat clean food and drink clean water he gets mad.
I know all those feels deeply, maybe i should move to the Iranian desert


you gonna get levinson’d


>eat dirt
you can just toss this one in with eating bugs and jacking off every day


That's interesting info, wiz. I also think modern hygiene is a sort of overrated thing, it's another branch of the over-medicated industrial system in which we live, and in fact it is hurting us. Good to see other goblin wizards around here.


What happens if you insert animal feces into your colon?


You might get some parasites and then you'll shit it out again with the rest next time you take a dump probably.


So why is it any different when you insert human feces to the same place?


Humans typically have better hygiene and cook their food so less parasites. Also it's more likely that any gut bacteria from a human is compatible with you, than say an animal's.


So why is it that human feces cannot be used as fertilizer, but animals can?


Controlled diet of the animals as opposed to humans I believe


When it's on an industrial scale there's a higher chance you'll get a human disease like ebola, as opposed to an animal one. Animals also have waste that's much easier to collect because they're farmed. Humans tend to have things like toilet paper and tampons or whatever else some faggot decides to flush mixed in with the waste. Also >>245376


there's a hard-to-seperate relationship between thoughts, mood, and behaviour. have you ever considered that one reason why you are so pessimistic is you're depressed? guess what part of the equation anti-depressants change? or do you expect everyone to have to adjust to your measure of how you see the world when its not at all consistent with how they think, perceive, and act.

anti-depressants do a lot of good for someone suffering related effects. we know that stress strips neurons of myelin sheaths; contributes to an early death; and cognitive decline. when you're depressed colours quite literally seem duller (making the world look ugly.) its a condition that robs you of enjoyment, makes you too tired for self-improvement, and most disturbingly: robs you of your will power. it makes literally no sense to refuse treatment because of 'the corporations, man.' they have nothing to do with your well-being.

if you don't want to be a wagie you don't have to, but if you are depressed it would be sheer foolishness to avoid treatment because life can be hard. the two aren't mutually exclusive so i wouldn't turn this into a false dilemma. if a medical professional has told you to take anti-depressants its because a large body of work by thousands of researchers and clinicians indicates it would be beneficial for you. ignore their advice at your own peril, tbh. signed, a concerned jew.
