Dates are bad for people perusing higher true spiritual religion such as enlightenment which is gained by kundalini serpents flowing towards third eye in mind. dates block the essence by which one cannot achieve this higher superhuman self. dates were created by ancient gods who called themselves gods and humans as their slaves, they created dates so humans could consume them, gods promoted dates by their religions practices e.g. in islam the prophet Mohammed consumed dates for breaking his fast, this wise guy knew the secret of it as he wanted the mass to follow the same. monotheistic religions tell humans to stay away from their complete self and call the fire of kundalini serpents a devil / satan, whereas the true religion speaks that such kundalini serpents are a part of human design and must be practiced to live a complete life with true eye and go heaven. also, fluoride etc is extremely bad for third eye. only by true wisdom / intellectual mind one can understand the true religion as the man made world is designed to keep the true religion of humans suppressed as more as they could by the evil god who calls himself supremo. Take Care.
