The cynical, unpredictable and fickle political landscape in Australia.

Wake up Australian voters; get out of your lethargic mental attitude and don’t think,”She’ll be right mate.” The German People thought so too in 1933 – the rest is history. Your future is in your hands on the 21st of August. If Labor wins the election and the Greens gain the balance of the power in the Senate, Australia will never be what it used to – it will change forever.

The election slogan of the Labor party, “Moving Forward,” means of course, don’t look into the rear view mirror and see the money wasting and disastrous schemes, some with deadly consequences that are left behind in the wake of the Rudd Government, for which Julia Gillard was equally responsible. And of course ‘moving forward’ means also getting away from the political corpse of Rudd himself. The failed insulation scheme is now costing the taxpayer more to fix than to implement. All these other money wasting schemes, too many to mention, but we all know what I’m talking about; they were financed with borrowed money which will have to be paid back.(Click on picture to enlarge.) It is alleged that this government is borrowing 100 million a day and it is frightening to think to which lender; are the Australian people the collateral?

The voters are starting to wake up to the hype a
nd doublespeak of our major political parties. It amazes me, and many others, when people say: “I vote for Julia Gillard because she is a woman and because of her infectious smile.” It shows that common sense has gone out of the window and been replaced with political correctness. I have nothing against women being in top jobs, they can be as good or as bad as men. I believe in egalitarianism and gender should not be an issue in this or any election; but good governance for all the people of this wonderful country should be imperative.

My wife asked several nurses (females) at the Cairns Base Hospital on Monday if they had watched the debate on Sunday between Gillard and Abbott. Each one of them said, “NO, I can’t stand that wo

It is beyond comprehension that women should have an issue with Tony Abbott. Is their femininity getting in their way? That the Labor party has an issue with him is understandable; his good performance since becoming Leader of the opposition has them rattled and they soon will realise that they have greatly underestimated him.

It becomes manifestly clear how fed up the Australian people are with our political system when we see millions of e-mails like: “Learn how to exercise your vote . . . .,” (reproduced below) finish up in e-mail inboxes.

I do not agree with every aspect of that e-mail, but what I agree with is that we must not elect a government again with a huge majority. This is the formula to become dictatorial and they do what
ever they like without any consultation with the electors. The mandatory fluoridation of our drinking water in Queensland is a case in point and shows us clearly how totalitarian and aloof a government can turn out to be. We are treated like mushrooms and fed constantly with BS.

Candidates from the major parties are restrained by party politics, and we have so often been let down by them. We need more good independent candidates in federal parliament, and in particular in the Senate, who can speak openly and without restraint and “keep th
e bastards honest,” as the late Don Chipp once said. I reiterate: we just cannot afford to give the major political parties a huge majority again so that they can ride roughshod over us or ignore us altogether after the election, as we have seen in the past three years.

If you plan to vote for the myopic Greens, aka “The Watermelon Party” (green on the outside and red inside, and in this case not very nutritious) to give them the balance of power in the Senate think again. Your electrical appliances will become obsolete; as you won’t be able to afford to pay for your electricity. However, you will be having permanent dinners by candlelight.

If Labor gets re-elected and the Greens win the balance of power, you will have good reasons to be frightened. Click here for an Alan Jones interview.

Learn How to Exercise your Vote and Break the Corporate Controlled Democracy!

Voters should not under any circumstances give their 1st preference to the Corporate Controlled Major Parties. By doing so the Australian Electoral Commission also give them $2.31 for each House of Reps and the same for each Senate Vote.

That means that if a Major Party receives 15,000,000 votes, that Major Party will received $34,650,000 dollars from the Australian Electoral Commission (ALL Tax Payer's Money)

To return the election process to "A People's Democracy", Voters need to vote for “Independents and Minor Parties" ahead of the Major Parties.


By putting the Corporate Controlled Major Parties LAST and SECOND LAST, the party that you put second last will still receive the preference distribution at the end of the vote count.

However, it will give “Independents and Minor Parties" more control in the senate if we can vote enough of them into parliament.

Australians need “Independents and Minor Parties" in Parliament, to keep these bastards from signing off on agreements and implementing unlawful laws that “Australians” do not know about.

People should not listen to the Corporate Media Co-Conspirators, who claim that a vote for “Minor Parties or Independents” is a wasted vote. If enough voters follow the above it would press the Major Parties to return to looking after the people of their electorate rather than their Corporate Masters.

If you have never voted before or you know someone who doesn't understand “How Voting Works” then forward them this "How to Exercise Your Vote to Make it Count” advice sheet.

Then everyone should print off 50 flyers and walk up and down your street and deliver this to your neighbours. If we all work together we can achieve anything. Together We Will Make a Difference!

The Watermelon is a Nutritional Powerhouse!

No other fruit says summer like the subtly crunchy, thirst quenching watermelon. Although watermelons can now be found in the markets throughout the year in Australia, the season for watermelon is in the summer when they are sweet and of the best quality. Following is an interesting article about this fruit, which is filled with nutrients, followed by a number of links that provide you with more information. - Werner
* * * * * * *
Find out Why the Watermelon is a Nutritional Powerhouse. By Paul Fassa, journalist (NaturalNews)

Who would have thought the common watermelon packed so much nutrition? The usual notion about watermelon is they are just water with taste, harmless, but not a good choice for nutritional value. Wrong! Watermelon has the most nutrition per calorie of common foods.

Organic watermelons are hard to find and pricey when found. But conventionally grown watermelons are not among the dirty dozen of the most heavily sprayed produce. Instead, they are actually among the fifteen most clean of non-organic fruits and vegetables.

What Watermelons Have to Offer.

Besides tasting great and being low in calories because watermelon is mostly water, it is an excellent source of Vitamin C, which is a major antioxidant. It has a high beta carotene concentration, thus offering a fair amount of vitamin A as well. Both beta carotene with vitamin A help support good eyesight and prevent glaucoma.

High intakes of combined beta-carotene and vitamin C have demonstrated, through clinical and scientific studies, a propensity for warding off various cancers and heart disease, reducing arthritis symptoms, and minimizing asthmatic breathing problems.

A surprise nutrient is vitamin B, especially B1 (thiamine) and B6 (pyridoxine). Thiamine is important for maintaining electrolytes and nervous system signal transmissions throughout the body. Pyridoxine is essential for enzymatic functions that convert food into cellular energy.

The meat or pulp of watermelons is usually pink or red. Those colors indicate the highest content of lycopene, an antioxidant lauded for its ability to greatly minimize cancer risks. From the Worlds' Healthiest Foods website (source below), "... lycopene has been repeatedly studied in humans and found to be protective against a growing list of cancers. These cancers now include prostate cancer, breast cancer, endometrial cancer, lung cancer and colorectal cancers."

Then there are the minerals of potassium and magnesium, which watermelons also offer abundantly. Potassium is important for cardiovascular health and brain health and helps the kidneys eliminate kidney stone forming calcium as well as assists with the body's fluid retention.

Magnesium is considered the master mineral. It is involved with over 300 cellular metabolic functions. It happens to be lacking in our diets because of our depleted topsoils. Magnesium deficiencies are directly or indirectly related to most of our population's poor health issues. Obvious symptoms are irritability, tension, sleep disorders, and muscular cramping. After that, it's heart attacks and other serious illnesses.

Picking and Handling Watermelon.

Organic watermelons too rare and pricey? Watermelon is among the cleanest 15 commercial agribusiness fruits and vegetables, and it's not part of the dirty dozen of most sprayed.

Sometimes they're cut, so you can avoid any that have some white or light coloring in its pulp. Then you can press lightly at different spots to make sure they're not over ripe while observing the pink/red color quality. Deeper red/pink is better. If they are not cut, pick them up one at a time, holding them on your shoulder and near your ear while knocking on them the way you would knock on someone's door. What you hear should be a somewhat hollow echo. If it goes thunk without as though it solid, that's no good. Too hollow a sound could be less optimum. Trail and error will help you develop the knack for picking the best.

Watermelons don't lose as much nutritional value cut and stored in the fridge as most other produce. But it's wise to pull the piece out long enough for it to go to room temperature. This maximizes its phytonutrient capacity.

So allow yourself to indulge in a great tasting, refreshing, and healthy treat with watermelon whenever you desire.

Senator Barnaby Joyce describes the Australian federal government in one word.

In his press release Barnaby states that the federal Labor government is “dodgy.” Do you agree with that? Now let us analyse the word “dodgy.” It means: 1. Of uncertain outcome; especially fraught with risk. 2. Marked by skill in deception. 3. Of doubtful quality or legality.

I heard in the radio that the National Tally Room in Canberra was booked today and that could mean only one thing that we will have an August federal election. Julia Gillard, our unelected Prime Minister, who was co-author of all the many disastrous schemes of the Rudd government, some with deadly consequences wants us to believe that things will be different now. Don’t believe it - leopards never change their spots.

Julia Gillard refused to answer journalist Laurie Oakes questions at the national press club in Canberra as to whether she welshed on a deal she made with Rudd – this is what I call “dodging.”

And a final note! If you think of voting for the Greens in the Senate, think again, if they obtain the balance of power there, be prepared for severe pain in your hip pocket. - Werner

The Labor Government is dodgy!
In trying to think of a metaphor to describe the Labor government in one word, it is this - dodgy! Their figures are dodgy when they talk about a $7.5 billion reduction in revenue but apparently only causing a $1.5 billion reduction in income. Their approach is dodgy when they talk about net debt as if the people who lent us the money don’t want the money back in gross terms and just for the record, we currently owe $150 billion and are currently borrowing an extra $150 million a day.

They are completely dodgy with how they change Prime Ministers in the middle of the night without telling the Australian people. They are even dodgy amongst themselves with the deals they make, such as the one between Kevin Rudd and Julia Gillard on the process of leadership transition which Julia obviously didn’t honour because the backroom boys told her not to. They are dodgy in how they talk about future surpluses, yet their past prescriptions about current surpluses have been so totally wrong and actually end up as deficits.

They are dodgy in how they describe solutions for the processing of boat people in East Timor when they haven’t actually done the homework to get the deal through East Timor. They are dodgy in how they employ mates such as Mr Kaiser for $450,000 a year without even putting an advertisement in the paper so that other Australian’s can apply for the job. They are dodgy in how they go forward with a $43 billion capital infrastructure program such as the NBN without doing a cost benefit analysis as to whether it will actually work.

They were dodgy in the way that they allowed the importation of beef from countries with Mad Cow Disease until we found out about the deal and then they changed the decision around again. They were dodgy in how they told people that the ETS was the greatest moral challenge of our time, but the person who was crucial in changing that moral paradigm is now enjoying the benefits of the Prime Minsters office. They were dodgy when they inferred that an ETS would change the climate when quite obviously it was never going to.

They were dodgy with how they told the Australian people that they would fix the hospital system by July 2009 or they would take it over and in the end, they did neither. They were dodgy when they decided to build school halls across our nation for $16.2 billion whether you wanted them or not and at three times the price. They were dodgy when they decided to put ceiling insulation into roofs and burnt down over 180 houses causing tragically the deaths of 4 people that we know of.

However, where they are really dodgy is this – they told people that they would assist with the cost of living. They had the dodgy fuel watch scheme and the dodgy grocery watch scheme which were announced with fan fare but achieved zip.

The cost of living in Australia is going through the roof because this crowd in government is dodgy and has absolutely no idea how to get the basics right. You cannot keep borrowing money at the rate they are, putting upward pressure on interest rates, and squeezing the last drop of blood out of working families and then claim to know something about the cost of living.

You cannot talk about reducing coal fired power replacing it with renewables at many times the cost and not expect that this is going to make working families poorer. You can’t fail to develop the inland and not expect the result to be far greater pressure on the social and economic infrastructure of urban Australia. If you don’t develop water infrastructure then you have to expect the price of a limited resource, water, to go through the roof.

If you keep on making it difficult for farmers to farm, with continual new laws on vegetation, and everything they do from sunrise to sundown and in between, while at the same time failing to oversee that farmers are getting a fair price at the farm gate, then the farmers will disappear and the price of food will go through the roof. You can’t borrow hundreds of billions of dollars from overseas and not expect that it has to be repaid by people who have to pay taxes, working families, who could have otherwise put that money in their pockets.

In summary, many people at the supermarkets and at the pubs and clubs and at the church on the weekend and at the sport with their kids understand one thing - that they seem to be poorer under this crowd then they were before, they have less money than they did before. They seem to be watching a political soap opera that has more episodes than Blue Hills standing in proxy for decent government.

My statement to the Australian people on behalf of the National Party in the Senate will be this - Do you honestly believe that you can carry on with this crowd for another three years? What do you think will be left of the show if you do? More Information-Jenny Swan 0746 251500

A view on Australian politics. An open letter from Dr. David Logan, Pastor of the Community Church of Armidale NSW Australia.

With the permission of David Logan I publish his letter, which he at first sent to ten friends and in no time it reached me. This is an interesting compilation of thoughts and I recommend that you read it. However, I would like to stress that the sentiments expressed are not necessarily those of the blogger and, I think that it will take more than prayers to get us out of the mess in Australia. - Werner

I guess that we've all formed our opinions about the bloodless coup that took place in Canberra last week and maybe some sort of statement has already been made in your church about the events that took place and their consequences. However, I thought that you MAY be interested in this statement that I made to our church on Sunday. I do believe that last week's events may be more historic than the media commentators realise - but for different reasons to those that they espoused in their journalistic analysis.

Bless you, Dave Logan, Armidale

Whether you considered Kevin Rudd to be the best thing since sliced bread or the worst thing since Adolf Hitler, he was our Prime Minister and WAS elected by the Australian public into that role. It is technically true that we elect local members who then elect their own leader and the leader of the majority party becomes PM, however it is indisputable that the last election was a Presidential style election and we were told that a vote for a Labor candidate was a vote for Rudd and a vote for Liberal candidate was a vote for Howard. Rudd’s face appeared on ALL local promo material. It WAS the expectation of those who voted Labor into government that Rudd would be PM. It was indisputably the understanding of the Australian people that they had elected Kevin Rudd to lead our Nation as Prime Ministerial.

The ALP is a fractionalized party - i.e. the factions, not the rank and file, run the party. Rudd was not a member of a faction (a rare thing in itself), however because neither the Right nor Left factions could get their candidate “up” in the party room, the popular Kevin Rudd was seen as the compromise candidate who could win the election. It worked. But when the popularity faded and the polls went down, Rudd had no factional power base to protect him and thus the unknown back room ALP factional power brokers rose against him. The Prime Minister of this nation was sacked at the behest of the these people the MP’s of course, had to take their instructions from these people, after all it is these factional leaders that determine MP’s pre-selection! Those who remember the ALP's outrage at the sacking of Gough Whitlam have every right to see Rudd's sacking by that same ALP machine as hypocritical.

Don’t be fooled, despite the Gillard appointment, we still have a very unstable and potentially volatile situation. Julia Gillard is a member of the Left faction; however she has come to power due to the support afforded to her by the right and centre-right factions. If she loses popularity or upsets
the same factional power base that has elevated Gillard to the PM’s job.

Are so called “Christian” parties the answer? I can’t support a so called Christian party that allows it’s only federal politician to vote in the Senate in support of abortion. Neither can I support the so called Christian parties in NSW whose only parliamentary representatives conducted a spiteful, vilifying, unchristian slanging match in the media, accusing each other of immoral and unlawful conduct.

What I am saying is simple. Encouraging Christians in our Nation to vote for one party over another is not the answer. We’ve gone beyond that. Our Nation is in very deep trouble.

Islam is gaining a strong foothold - you may have read recently (in the last fortnight) of a policeman who was charged with racial abuse over his demand that a Moslem woman uncover her face so he could check her license. In one State, and I think it NSW, Moslem women can now leave their face covered in license photos. The influence of Islam is growing at an extremely rapid rate.

Spiritually, morally, politically our nation is heading downhill at a rate of knots. What I am saying is that if the church doesn’t wake up and pray and step into the void and do so very quickly, our children will live in a very different Australia to the one we know today. This is a message that we must heed and that needs to be taken to the church across our nation.

Think about this. Julia Gillard’s grandparents were part of the Welsh revival - her parents were raised in a God fearing Baptist home, she had a little exposure to the gospel in a Baptist environment in her childhood. She now says that she is a “non religious person” a “non practicing Baptist” (whatever that is!!!). It has only taken one generation to lose the effect of the Welsh revival, to lose Biblical morals and principles. Just one generation.

I realize that the picture that I have painted is negative but the picture is accurate, that really IS the way that the world is, that really IS the state of our Nation.

But there is another perspective.
If it only takes one generation to kill a revival, then understand this, one generation is all it takes to restore the same!

We can hold our heads in despair as we view this South Land of The Holy Spirit or we can lift our heads and become that generation that makes this South Land GREAT.

I believe that politically, morally and religiously, our Nation is in deep trouble. But I also believe that God has given us the answer. “If my people who are called by my name…..”. The answer is not in our ballot boxes, although we must be wise and prayerful about who we will vote for. The church must rise up, the sleeping giant must wake. We MUST pray and we must declare the counsel of God without fear or favour. We must take a stand on morality and godly principles. We must be the generation who restores the revival, the generation that rises up in Jesus’ name and will not bow down to any other name. It may not be the popular path, but I believe it is Australia’s last hope.

We simply MUST be part of THAT generation the generation that rises up and reclaims our heritage. To leave it to another generation will be to leave it too late. To leave it to another people will be to make a tragic mistake.

If not me then who, if not now then when?

It only takes one generation..........

.........and it has to be ours!

Australia: Our Multicultural Society.

After the Second World War there was a great influx of migrants from all over the world to Australia. Many of them didn’t speak English; I was one of them. The migrants were then referred to as "New Australians."

We have now a mixture of names in Australia that are looking somewhat strange to most Australians, many are a jumble of letters and they have difficulty in pronouncing them. The ‘Sch’ at the beginning of my name is still causing problems for many people in Australia, and the first thing after being asked what my name was, is immediately followed by the inevitable second question: “how do you spell it? Spelling my name since coming to Australia must have run into the millions and has become second nature to me.

I often wonder how Australians, who generally speak only English, could ever put themselves in the position of a migrant who came here and couldn’t speak any English at all. Although I went through an English correspondence course before coming to Australia, I soon found out to my chagrin that reading English, and speaking and understanding what was said, were different altogether.

I have documented many funny occurrences during my quest to master the English language, but for me, it is still a work in progress.

However, because of the migrants that came from far and wide and from various cultures, we can say that we are a multicultural society, but I accept this concept in name only. I strongly believe that migrants that are “adopted” by this country should assimilate and integrate into the Australian way of life and not form and live in their own cultural enclaves. The old adage: “When in Rome, do as the Romans do,” should also apply in Australia.

With an open mind, we can learn a lot from each other, but to be loyal to Australia that accepted us is imperative. As far as I’m concerned there should never be divided loyalties.

Many migrants would have interesting stories to tell, and I would encourage them to share them with all of us. I recall vividly the reaction by an Australian cane farmer to my request to speak Oxford English to me. Read story below.- Werner

This brings me now to this amusing tale, namely: Moishe Plotnik’s Laundry. Whether this is true or not doesn’t matter, but it should generate a chuckle for the reader.

Walking through San Francisco's Chinatown, a tourist from the Midwest was enjoying the artistry of all the Chinese restaurants, shops, signs and banners......

When he turned a corner and saw a building with the sign 'Moishe Plotnik's Laundry.”

'Moishe Plotnik?' he wondered. 'How does that belong in Chinatown?’

He walked into the shop and saw a fairly standard looking drycleaner, although he could see that the proprietors were clearly aware of the uniqueness of the store name as there were baseball hats, T-shirts and coffee mugs emblazoned with the logo 'Moishe Plotnik's Chinese Laundry.' The tourist selected a coffee cup as a conversation piece to take back to his office. Behind the counter was a smiling old Chinese gentleman who thanked him for his purchase.

The tourist asked, 'Can you explain how this place got a name like 'Moishe Plotnik's Laundry?'' The old man answered, 'Ah..Evleebody ask me dat. It name of owner.' Looking around, the tourist asked, 'Is he here now?' 'It me, me him!' replied the old man.

'Really? You're Chinese. How did you ever get a Jewish name like Moishe Plotnik?' “It simple” said the old man. "Many, many years ago I come to this country. I was standing in line at Documentation Centre of Immigration. Man in front of me was a Jewish man from Poland."

'Lady at counter looked at him and say to him, 'What your name?' He say to her, “Moishe Plotnik.” Then she look at me and say, 'What your name?'

I say, “Sam Ting.”

Oxford English.
When I came to Australia in 1954 I volunteered to cut sugar cane and was sent to the Maclean district in northern NSW. I was in a gang of five German migrants and we were given instructions with the help of an interpreter. Then the Cane inspector from the sugar Mill asked, “Who of you speaks English?” I said, kind of reluctantly, that I had completed a correspondence course in English in Germany. “OK,” said the cane inspector, “you are the ganger.” I had to ask what “ganger” meant and entailed, as I had never come across this word in my correspondence course. After it had been explained what my duties were, I was overwhelmed by this sudden promotion.

Although I had completed an English correspondence course, I soon realised that there was a big difference between reading the language, and speaking it and understanding what is being said.

Conversation between the farmer and me usually went something like this: he would give me instructions and after every sentence I would say, “Yes”. After about four instructions and four yeses, he would ask me, “Do you understand?” To which I would reply, “No”. The exasperation clearly showed on his face, and he would scratch his head mumbling to himself and walking away to organise an interpreter. I wasn’t sure what he mumbled, but I had the feeling it contained some expletives (plus perhaps – “Bloody New Australians”).

Then I remembered the advice my cousin Paul gave me back in Germany; he had learned English at the University, but had never been in a crash-course situation like me. He gave me the following counsel. "In Germany we speak different dialects, but everybody can also speak the High-German or school German. The same situation exists in England, and I'm sure the same applies in Australia”. (I remembered the language problem I’d had in the canteen in Bremen speaking my dialect). “The equivalent of the school German in the English language is Oxford English", Paul said, “the English you learned in your correspondence course”.

With this in mind I faced the next day with additional confidence. During smoko time the farmer came along to tell me something, and I was ready to try this new tack. After he finished the first sentence I said, “Would you speak Oxford English please?” For a moment I thought he was going to have convulsions; in order not to swallow his tongue he coughed and his cigarette dropped from between his lips. “Hey? Oxford English? - Oxford English?” he slowly repeated again with a perplexed facial expression, “You must be bloody joking, ha, ha, ha”, finishing with a guttural laugh. He then turned around, calling out to his brother who was a bit further down the paddock. “This fellow here” he said, pointing to me, “wants me to speak bloody Oxford English. Can you speak it?” he asked with a chuckle. Needless to say I have never asked anybody since to speak Oxford English.

New Zealand study debunks the fallacious spin about the benefit of fluoride.

It is amazing that New Zealand authorities finally seem to be waking up to the futility of the costly and unnecessary fluoridation of their drinking water. This is exactly what many prominent scientists have been saying for years, but they were conveniently ignored by vested interests. In Europe, with the exception of England and Ireland, water fluoridation is banned. This alone should be a powerful message, but then again, none are as blind as those who don’t want to see. Click on picture to enlarge!

In the USA and Canada they are also waking up about water fluoridation. Many states and provincial regions are now fighting to have the poisoning of their water stopped. Here in Queensland most of our water contains calcium fluoride (the good fluoride), but our Labor government was hell-bent that everybody must drink this poison and mandated it surreptitiously, without asking the population if they want it. This was an action of a totalitarian government and the rate payer is now lumbered with the ongoing costs. Will they ever admit that they were wrong? Not in your life!

John Colquhoun (deceased) was a dentist, former Principal Dental Officer of Auckland, New Zealand, and an ardent proponent of fluoridation. He was sent on a world tour by the NZ government to carry out a comprehensive study about the benefits or otherwise of water fluoridation. This proved to be an eye opener for him and he changed his mind about fluoridation. When he published his report it was not what the government wanted to hear and he was dismissed from his post. He wrote the much read exposé; “Why I changed my mind about water fluoridation.” If he would still be alive today, he would most likely say to the NZ government: “I told you so!” - Werner
* * * * * * *
If you want to know, why John Colquhoun changed his mind about fluoridation, click here. Below is a short excerpt.

I quote: I had been taught, and believed, that there was really no scientific case against fluoridation, and that only misinformed lay people and a few crackpot professionals were foolish enough to oppose it. I recall how, after I had been elected to a local government in Auckland (New Zealand's largest city, where I practiced dentistry for many
years and where I eventually became the Principal Dental Officer) I had fiercely - and, I now regret, rather arrogantly - poured scorn on another Council member (a lay person who had heard and accepted the case against fluoridation) and persuaded the Mayor and majority of my fellow councillors to agree to fluoridation of our water supply.

N.Z. Health Ministry Finds that Fluoridation Does Not Reduce Tooth Decay. April 30th, 2010. Click on picture to enlarge!

Statistics from a study conducted by the New Zealand Ministry of Health suggest that there are no advantages derived from fluoridation. These statistics actually match similar arguments set forth by the American Dental Association.

The latter organization conducted a large study on some 39000 American children and found that they did not derive any advantages from the use of fluoride.

The process of fluoridation is the practice of adding fluoride minerals to a water source so that people can get exposed to the mineral through drinking water. Some bodies of water already have fluoride in them and do not need fluoride added.

The fluoride is allegedly added so that it can help in the prevention of cavity development. The practice of adding fluoride to water is supposed to allow many people, regardless of income, to receive healthy doses of fluoride. Yet, recent studies are revealing that the fluoridation practices do little in terms of cavity prevention, if anything at all.

The study conducted in New Zealand by the Ministry of Health reveals that children living in areas with no fluoride have one percent fewer cavities than those children that reside in regions where fluoridation is offered. Nevertheless, the Health Ministry still asserts that some thirty percent of children will gain some advantages from regular fluoridation.

While the assertion may seem somewhat paradoxical, the statistics offered by the organization mix low and high socioeconomic towns and cities to supply a figure to represent the nation. This mixing of statistics results in a rather poor representation of what is really going on.

Some researchers argue that the statistics would reveal that both groups of tested children would benefit from fluoridation if fluoridation had advantages. In truth, the statistics are actually revealing that children are simply not benefiting from the use of fluoridation. The bottom line is that the Ministry of Health is trying to make the use of fluoridation sound more promising.

Some researchers suggest that the Ministry is acting against at least fifty years of studies that indicate fluoridation does not provide an adequate defence against cavities.
