Liquid Medicine: Controversial Call to Add Lithium to Drinking Water for “Mental Health”


After fluoride, another (and even more powerful) brain-altering product might appear in drinking water: lithium. Known for its “lobotomizing” properties, lithium would be a great way to create a nation of zombies. Who’s for it?

Here’s an article from The Daily (sorry for the iPad screenshots it is the only version of the article I found).

There is a video about water called What the F do we know – an Australian video and it backs up what the guy said about the water. I always bless my food and drink and I am fit and well. Get the video and see the experiments yourselves

I have been distilling for 3.5 years now, and every month, or so, I "boil" out my distiller, to remove the grim that builds up around the inside. Anyone who would see what is left over, would admit, what ever it is "they" are putting in our water now, looks like crystalfrickenmeth! Before I started distilling, my doctor had me on 3 different asthma meds, I haven't used an asthma inhaler in over 3 years! I realized, the medications they give you, CAUSE DISEASE! Before distilling, I would catch a cold, at least twice a year. But not for the last three years. I feel more healthy than ever. I usually eat all organic, and if I do eat at like somebody's barbaque (like today), I get a big headache, probably from the HFC's in a hamburger bun, or the Nitrates in the hamburger itself. It's definately more healthy to… Read more »

Yes the alkaline effect is the fountain of youth and wellness. Our body loves to be in an alkaline state which is why Cola drinks are so awful. They make your body acid – cancer loves acid by the way

Wow this is crazy. – Lithium in our tap water. The government will control us all if we dont put a stop to it. "A serene social order" Walking zombies. It dampens impulsivity. Im not against anyone drinking "happy water", but shouldnt we make that decision on our own. Craziness. Ericakane01

Well, this is one of the most insane things I've ever heard.

I think they're lying also. I fear we will all die soon, i heard this drug is only for people with athlete's foot, and has severe side effects such as less gas mileage in your car… Also i think they should decrease the amount of water in our water since even water can act as a poison in large amounts.

Wow, ignorance is great.

Observational studies in Japan, reported in 2011, suggested that naturally occurring lithium in drinking water may increase human lifespan.

^ I think they are lying……….

It has to be said:

"Stay thirsty my friends.."

THESE PEOPLE HAVE NO RIGHT TO TOUCH OUR WATER.. Gov't just suppose to monitor and provide for fair trade, and protect us from a foreign invasion. THAT IS IT. Putting Lithium in the water and turning us all into zombies is not part of the deal. If they do this, give them Hell.

Wow. I can't believe that these people would write an article advocating lithum, or talking about its benefits, and at the same time, give a list on how deadly it is.

How it was once used as a table salt in the 1940's, until reports of death and sickness came and in. And how it is also highly flammible. I am just waiting to see fighterfighters use municipal water with this stuff in it.

Really, either they are just plane nut jobs running all forms of government right now, or their really is a global conspiracy to kill most of us humans off.

Agree with you across the board, but as far as the flammability, that's with lithium in its pure form. Just like sodium explodes when it comes into contact with water, but sodium chloride (table salt) doesn't, I'm sure it wouldn't act as an accelerant in hydrant water. That being said, there's no way I'd drink it. Hopefully reverse osmosis takes care of lithium as well, if they ever choose to dump it into that stuff they call water they pump through the plumbing.

No coffee this time, but I'll drink the liquid within my mental wiring to get you to question.

Liquid depression handled through phosphoric acid, pepsi coking you yet? Read your Science, and find that Lithium is just an icing.

As the battery mines underneath Afghan feet are trillions in currency, you think your wartime is not funding your watered down trajectory? It's all within the congruency and don't leave anything out of your reach, because the hidden hands are as far as you can see…

Set the standards through each sip of your stained wine glass, because know that water is clear when your mind is sincere.


This is absolutely horrifying. Anybody ever take lithium, I did for depression (I don't know why, I think they were trying to tranquilize me lol)and saw it's effects in higher doses when I was in the psych ward, it knocks you out, completely numbs your mind to everything… like a zombie. It is a powerful powerful antipsychotic. Can you imagine givng drugs like this to a healthy child, there could be permanant damge. It's okay for people who have really serious mental problems (if you overlook the stupifying side-effects) but giving it to overall healthy people is unnecessary, wreckless and stupid. If I didn't know 'they' wanted to dumb us all down before I know now. If the government is even considering this I'm moving.

Is anyone else reading this and thinking "Serenity" as in the Firefly movie? As in the creation of Reavers? >_> Scary stuff.

This is a pretty scary premis because they hide behind the it's not so bad facade. You'll feel better you wont want to kill yourself anymore no worries. What about our childrens brains? What about reaction time to daily situtations. Who cares if we're not all happy that's normal. It would be freakish if everyone were happy all the time. We can barley drink our water now because of floride and now there going to add lithium that is absolutly terrible.

Everybody keeps saying, we need to do something, how do we do something, how can we make our voice heard? I'm willing to put n the work but there seems to be no way. I'm sure an email to the president will b skimmed right over. So what can we do to b "proactive?" Cuz I really am fed up and our voices need to b heard

I think lithium should be added to the water supply of the researchers/doctors who are suggesting it be added into public water in this article. I further think it should be required for the department of Homeland Security, the NSA, the CIA, all police departments, all of the military, and surely it should taken by all Rockefellers, Rothschilds, all members of parliments world-wide, and the US Congress. Perhaps it could be made a requirement to take lithium if you decide you want to 'serve' the public by becoming a politician. Once elected to office, it's required that you take a daily dose of lithium.

I am most lucky. I live in a small town (under 1,000 people) and we don't even have floride in our water. However, this article tells me that I'll need to research any big city that I am visiting or traveling through to ensure there's no Lithium in their water.

Great article!! THanks for keeping us so informed. Never saw this on mainstream media.

They sell meat and dairy products from cloned animals and there is no requirement to label those products. The clones haven't even been tested.

Apologies for not giving the live performance link after all that hype buildup LOL Enjoy and happy long weekend to all! For all of us Americans, think good thoughts and prayers of remembrance for all of our soldiers, past and present. Regardless of your views about the govt in general, literally millions of these brave souls have sacrificed more for us than we can ever truly know. It doesn’t mean anything other than a show of respect for those who have made real and amazing sacrifices to help protect our safety and way of life, without letting the politics of the evil and corruption of the political leaders who commit them to risking their lives and limbs. Just remember them fondly, and say thank you. That’s all. Any of my friends who served in the past and who are still serving, would never ask for or want a big… Read more »

The simplest way to look at anything along these lines is this:

Being that we know by now for a fact that “they” (the powers that be) do not have anything especially good or beneficial in mind for any of us, any substance that they would want to put into our food or water supply (with ot without our knowledgwe or approval) is definitely not going to be anything that is good for us.

Quite the contrary.

I was wondering why we were getting so much advice to drink lots of water, so we can be poisoned all the more–makes a body scared to do the what normally should be healthy things. Why are we being encouraged to do what should be good for us–like exercize, drinking water, eating healthy? Oh yeah, it's because the powers that be really care about all of us and just want us to be well and happy. They want us to be physically fit, and well-adjusted, and live a long, long time…and make an impact in the world around us, be free-thinkers, be able to thrive…and live in lala land so we can't discern and speak out against evil.

Do gang bangers sit around and drink a lot of water? "Hey Bob, that was rough hit, better have a water and rehydrate."

If I remember right, pharma stuff is harder to filter out than lime or metals like iron. So, I suspect we've mostly added female birth controls pills to waste water.

Enough that many marine animal that would be male are now intersexed, or infertile females.

Will this be an effort to reduce the population

This is going to KILL US!!!

I wish they would add something which would allow me to piss rainbow colors.

I swear, everyone pissing rainbows would bring about world piss.

Rainbow urine! You'd bottle it, wouldn't you? Just for a taste of rainbows!

Ok…u guys are sooo screwed! I mean those of u who wood be drinking that poison!!!

Only mortals fear death.

This is insane…but if you were to examine all the stuff your drinking water already contains, I'm sure lithium wouldn't the the most harmful substance. Doesn't make it right, but still.

I live in Calgary, AB, and after a long debate they recently shut off the fluoride to the tap water here. Maybe I've just been reading sites like this too much but I get the feeling the whole debate and subsequent announcement was to cover up something else…*L* Maybe I'm just paranoid.

Vegaswatcher it does NOT make you a zombie, I'm very far from a zombie and I'm not completely mentally disturbed. Lithium has anti-depressant properties and helps level out ppl with mood disorders. Wow, I'm so glad I'm not as close minded as many of you when it comes to mental health. Google Catherine zeta jones

Lithium usually works for patients with severe mental illness, not for depression. As someone else mentioned earlier, it is a worst case scenario for people with mental illness, because it is a last option. In a sense, it does make the person taking it, like a zombie, since it has such a powerful effect on the brain and the neurotransmitters and dopamine levels in the brain. I would not reccommened anyone taking Lithium unless you are a Delusion,Paranoid or Disorganized Schinzophrenic. While the effects for people with Schizophrenia is almost amazing, it would be horrid on people without it,and would throw off the dopamine levels, causing effects that would be unknown. This would be the worse thing that could happen to the american public. I basis my information off of what i know, being a Pre-Med Psychology student. God help us all if they approve this

Vegas Watcher: Lithium is not used to treat schizophrenia, it is used to treat bi-polar disorder (manic depression). It is a mood stabilizer. It can be used off label to treat migraine headaches, chronic pain, and ptsd. In the hands of a capable physician, it is safe. Lithium salts also occur naturally in spring water, seaweed, cudweed, eggs, potatoes, lemons, and milk. As for the zombies, this is a sign that either the person is on too high a dose or never needed it to begin with. People who truly need it come out fine provided they are under the care of a responsible physician, follow instructions such as staying hydrated, eating more salt, and taking in electrolytes (gatorade, powerade, etc.). Yes, the incidence of kidney & thyroid failure exponentially increase after 5 years. Yes, there are drug interactions from both over the counter & prescription drugs. No, you cannot… Read more »

Interesting aside: The Daily is owned by News Corporation.

isn't lithium an ingredient in meth? It's good to know this is being considered, there is nothing we can do to stop it if PTB want it, it will just be railroaded through like everything else. At least we are aware though, just another danger to bear in mind.

Lithium from batteries is listed in a couple of listings…although to be honest, Lithium would appear to be one of the least harmful ingredients in Methamphetamines.

Seriously, you seen the ingredient lists?

Appreciate your post VC.

Yet another psy-ops in the name of science! It is interesting to note that this "research" overlooked obvious causes for these ever increasing rates such as the depraved content of entertainment (TV, Movies, Video Games, etc.) readily available, which glorify death, drugs & violence…just a thought. Unfortunately, members of society are allowing themselves to view such debased entertainment and these forms of entertainment are influencing factors, moulding hearts & minds.

"More than all else that is to be guarded, safeguard your heart, for out of it are the sources of life." – Proverbs 4:23 (NWT)

One of my friends in America has Schizophrenia. They make her take lithium as a medication, she takes loads of other medication that they can change at any given time. She even used to do electroconvulsive threapy. I don't know, I've seen the side effects of the thing and I would never, ever, ever take lithium. It's way too dangerous.

Gosh I'm feeling suicidal, any lithium around to calm my nerves?

no need to worry my friend soon it will be available to you with no cost whatsoever by your wonderful government.anywhere anytime.

I just wish they would leave me and my water alone.

Everyone, stop being fearful and just take precaution. You can get a filtration system placed on your house that does filter this stuff out.

It's a thought.

~A Chic Name Slickback

Typical issues, same as with Fluoride.

One issue that people don't seem to know is that if you put any drug in the water, you can't really control for dosage. So kids will get a stronger dose than adults when drinking the same amount of water, and those who drink more water will get more drug(s) than those who drink more bottled pop. (and if you drink a lot of fountain drinks, you're up sh&t creek evidently).

– – – – – – –

Sounds like a formula for making more docile urban poor…

i like the idea of lithium in the water,…mind you, only my water,,,,i wanna control what i decide to put in my body not have someone else do it for me….im not speaking for the whole population…just my own…so please don't attack…the only reason why i do, cause it actually makes me feel better, but i don't over do it…maybe once or twice a year…i have family down in north carolina…there's a natural source of lithium water…i do have a history of mental disease…and even though my opinion does'nt agree with most of you here…i like it in MY WATER…i get severe depressions maybe once or twice a year…and even though the water does'nt completely take it away…it just eases it a bit…once again…i'm only speaking for myself..

Are there any side effects?

My friend has mental problems too, and it kind of makes her really shake and sometimes seize.

i havent really experienced any adverse side effects…like people would think…but then again, you would have to ask a large group of people,,,since everyones system reacts differently to the same stimuli…but, with me…it just makes me a bit more jittery…but thats within the one week time frame that i drink it….to be honest, i prefer the jittery as opposed to what i would usually feel….it's not something i would promote around,,,people know what works best for them…and this helps me out, if this is something your friend would try…ask a professional first…look into other options first…then you finally make the decision…

Wait there is more to come. Atomic bombs anyone

Okay so we all know what they are doing 2 us. lets stop just readiog all the article on they wonderful works and lets create our own plan. its hard 2 see how staying in the system can help. look around how many ppl believe? the masses dont want 2 and when it all set in they will turn against us who dont want no part. we will be like threats. ever watch those futuristic movies.

our salvation lies in nature. nature was created before us for a reason. are we all going 2 give up and stay trapped in a matrix that uses our energy 9-5 in a perpetual sick system that we have 2 give the money right back to? they are destroyin nature 4 a reason. but b4 they do we have to reconnect so we can do something the answer i dont know.

next they'll want erection meds in the water, to make sure we all BREED,

HFCS so we'll all FEED.

The ultimate battle is for the MIND.

Google for the important article, which VC should feature, called:

"The Mind Has No Firewall" for a real eye opener.

Now instead of making an excuse for mass medicating the people they just straight out say that they are going to be giving all of us medication by the millions, without our approval. It just gets easier and easier for them.

Heres a better idea find the reason for sucides? seriously ppl should start finding out how to avoid getting sick and messed up, that way you wont have to take some dope they give to us to treat it. the best medicine there is would be avoiding the disease itself through knowledge.

The power of human consciousness has an exponential effect on the world around us when it's used for good. Just 7,000 people meditating for a few days on peace reduced violence worldwide by 70%, now known as the Maharishi effect. Everybody ought to know firmly what they want and what they will not accept in their lives. Compulsory drugging is one of them. I'm not saying we should just sit around at home and meditate on clean water. I'm saying don't give in to panic. This is a real living world, not some kind of Hollywood film production. You wanna know a secret? Absolutely anything is possible. We have been deliberately programmed to despair in the face of overwhelming odds and plead the powers that be to help us, or to take up arms and do something incredibly detrimental. But that's not how the world works. We actually have divine… Read more »

Beautifully put! We are the ones ultimately in control. We've just been raised and drugged into believing the opposite.

Thank you Syrus ..i needed that bit of empowerment after reading this article.

I believe what you say is true & thank you for the inspiration.

I'm in the UK, so am not yet faced with this, but do have a pretty good grasp on the debilitating effects of Mental Illness.

And for anyone who is feeling overwhelmed or believes there

is nothing they can do,check out this website:
Don't be distracted by the title, it has much good content!

Also, for anyone into music,please check out PayDay Monsanto & Immortal Technique

happening. If at first you don't succeed,KEEP TRYING! Blessings.

Big surprise, I've been taking Lithium for manic-depression for ages. And this is beyond harsh, normally, Lithium is for the real crazies, you don't come back from Lithium, and placing it in the water supply is a horrible crime.

On the other hand, It's not exactly as Toxic as everyone thinks. Lithium is basically a salt, and my doctor specifically instructs me to take my Lithium with quite a large amount of water, or I'll die basically. (My cure is salt and water! WTF)

And seeing as how I'm not dead yet, and body-wise, I feel fine, I think if it's in small enough quantities, no one will be hurt by it.

The mind control aspect does come in play though….big time. Half the time, I can't even focus, and it's not because I'm Bi-Polar…..

I think municipalities would be better off putting iodine in the water, as most people have an iodine deficiency. That would improve health more than lithium. Iodine deficiency has a direct link to hypothyroidism, or low functioning thyroid. This leads to obesity, depression, and if severe enough-coma. Many Americans are deficient because of diet and iodized salt isnt enough. But they are too busy turning people into soylent green instead of healthy folk.

Is it possible that the study in Texas may be to see if it is detremental and if it is to try to find a way to remove it from the water?

the future is seeming like an unfriendly place for us , thankfully i could handle pretty much any stressful situation,unfortunatly most ppl cannot and those will be the ones who trample me underfoot when all out pandemonium ravages the streets, still no worries because death isnt the end its only the beginning:) Dont be Afraid

Just curious, how safe is bottled water in comparison — like say Aquafina or Nestle? That's all I've been drinking for years.

You'd probably have to worry about phthalates to start with…messes with your reproductivity if you're a male, and may cause issues with your children's sexuality.

I'd also worry about where it comes from. If it comes from a tap (some metropolitan water system that needs the extra money) you may be getting the same stuff everyone else is getting.

But…if it turns out the water comes from a deep aquifer (say…around the Great Lakes) then you're okay…other than with the phthalates.

So the water in Chicago is OK, then? Good to know. 🙂

seeing as both those are owned by companies who poison everything else they distribute, i wouldnt put it past them. it's just purified tap water. still has fluoride and whatever else we probably don't want to know about.

…and chemicals from all the plastic…

more prepping of minds for the eventual mark of the beast.

tomorrow, wave your hand or position your head for the chip in your face or hand to be scanned for payment.


I have no words…

These are facts stated in the article about Lithium:

"Lithium is highly reactive, extremely flammable, and floats on water."

"In the 40's lithium was sold as a substitute for table salt, until it was reported TOXIC and people DIED FROM INGESTING IT."

"Lithium has been used by the military to MAKE AIRCRAFT ENGINE GREASE, HYDROGEN BOMBS and ROCKET PROPELLANT."

"Lithiums largest use today is to make LITHIUM ION BATTERIES"

And this greedy Douche of a scientist doesn't understand why people send him death threats when he suggests we put Lithium in our WATER.

VC, I swear to god I am not effin playing around any more!

Here are few, just because you momentarily forgot 😉

"If the people let government decide what foods they eat and what medicines they take, their bodies will soon be in as sorry a state as are the souls of those who live under tyranny." Thomas Jefferson

yea i want to send that scientist some death threats too geez… thats messed up

"it's unclear exactly how lithium effects the brain"

DOH! AFFECTS the brain. It's unclear exactly how lithium AFFECTS the brain. Perhaps it makes people mix up common words. 😛
