If the Earth stopped spinning, would things get heavier?

Question

Hello!

I know that the rotation of the Earth creates centrifugal force that counteracts the force of gravity.

If the Earth stopped spinning, how much heavier would things become?
Would we all be crushed by the force of gravity?

Thanks so much!!!

Regards,

Rex
