Fluoride a poison in our waterBy MARY BYRNE
The practice of adding a chemical - sodiumsilicofluoride or hydrofluorosilicic acid - to everybody's drinking water is nothing short of fanatical.
What rational person takes a substance captured in a factory smoke-stack because it's too toxic to be discharged into the air, and then cannot be got rid of in the sea or a river because it's not allowed by international marine law, and decides to put into every man, woman and child's drinking water?
And that's regardless of whether the person is sick or how they react to it and even though they may have said they don't want it.
In Wellington, sodiumsilicofluoride is added to the drinking water. We import this substance from Belgium where not only do they not have water fluoridation, they have banned the tablets. In fact, no country in continental Europe has water fluoridation any longer.

You certainly are a busy bunch! I have never received so many e mails so quickly. I might paraphrase "Churchill" and say, "never in the field of surfing has so much been received from so many by so few," but I wouldn't do that.
Kind regards to all, especially those in "Georgia, y'all," where I lived for 11 1/2 years before coming to New Zealand

For an excellent guide to feeding cats we highly recommend Natural Nutrition for Cats by Kymythy Schultze
Many thanks for all you fantastic advice and for helping people think about things beyond feeding their pets as well – like avoiding microwaves and fluoridated water.
Our own cat is a third generation raw organic food cat who weighs in at 18lbs of solid muscle – he’s never tasted cooked food, and he’s never been sick.
I think Natural Nutrition for Cats would also make a brilliant book for human diet with barely any changes – especially the part about avoiding grains….
ps. Here’s a pic of our cat Christo

Whether it’s thinking improved nutrition, looking after the community or protecting our environment, we take social responsibilty seriously”
So how does selling Chinese tinned apple sauce fit into that?
I used to like eating the stuff, and am appalled that NZ grown apple products have been replaced by Chinese ones
It’s a shame that we can no longer use or recommend such an iconic NZ brand as Fresh Up…..
“Quality is everywhere at Frucor. When we're creating a new product, we listen to you.”
NZ organic products are what we are looking for. Price is not crucial. Please create a new product range!
Ian Gregson - Wellington Chapter Weston A Price Foundation
Thank you for your feedback.
The reason we have had to change the product is because the New Zealand manufacturer decommissioned their production line.
You can be assured however that the product from China meets our rigorous quality standards.
I appreciate that there has been negative publicity about various products from China which unfortunately is caused by a small minority of disreputable operators.
That should not however detract from the fact that China produces a vast amount of high quality produce which is used by the worlds leading consumer goods companies.
Without Chinese produce there would be insufficient world supply of many of these products, and that includes apple based products.
You will be pleased to know however that our Fresh Up fruit juice range is still made from 100% New Zealand grown apples as it has been for the last 48 years. So long as reasonably possible we will keep it that way.

I wanted to let you know about the new London WAPF chapter, since so many of your members probably pop down here for holiday/work!! Would be great if you could let everybody know, because almost every Kiwi/Aussie is going, went, or know people in London, England, and we are attempting to boost our numbers!!
We also have a Sally Fallon talk in London to promote, and have lots of raw milk sources to share with the people, so the group is new, but rising fast!!

“Healthy Options” www.healthyoptions.co.nz New Zealand’s low fat, pro vegetarian “health” magazine, in which the cure for all illnesses is fresh fruit and veg, and the word “meat” is seldom uttered, has just published a short article on the work of Weston A Price.
The editor writes “sometimes it is a good thing to be confronted by a challenging situation… the article based on the nutritional principles of Dr Weston A Price could evoke this response”
The article, which is a good introduction written by someone who understands and follows WAPF dietary principles, is pretty much the antithesis of most of the articles published in Healthy Options magazine for the past 24 years, so it’s really quite remarkable to see it in there!

The Weston A Price Foundation Chapter for Wellington New Zealand was originally set up in January 2008
w e b s i t e www.wapfwellington.org.nz
In some parts of the world, the WAPF seems to focus firstly on education and also has a big emphasis on activism (on issues like raw milk)
To be honest, we tend to mostly hook people up with the whole foods they are searching for, and because the demand is greater than the supply, we are not so much publicising WAPF foods as rationing them out to keen buyers. So while other chapters around the world are publicly promoting the foods WAPF recommends, we almost avoid all public mention of some of them. But demand has gone crazy anyway.
Although the basis of much of our philosophy about food is based on a WAPF background, we are more of a local food network with a handful of WAPF members. But it would be great to have a larger and more active Wellington chapter, and the four quarterly journals that members receive are well worth the membership fee alone.
Although our local food activity is probably bigger and more active then it first appears, we don’t actually have many Wellington WAPF members. If you would like to join, read more here.
The growth in interest in the past year is huge – it would be great to see a whopping great pile of new members too, so that we would look like we are going off ;-)
Although far cheaper ones are available, the best cast iron frying pans are French Le Creuset ones which are available from online shops like table pride and the studio of tablewear
They are eye wateringly expensive at around $300 for a 28cm one with a wooden handle, but the food comes out so well they are worth it! Otherwise find a well used and well seasoned one second hand. The cheap new Chinese ones from places like Briscos are very inferior and may put heavy metals into your food.
Apart from the vastly improved flavour, the other good bit is that a good cast frying pan is almost as non-stick as Teflon and they are not poisoning you with toxic teflon. And they last for decades and get better with age.
stoneycreek sausages are the best we have ever tasted - no gluten, starches, or fillers
