The Hydros Water Distiller
JEANETTE MORGAN looks at a scientifically sound way to keep your domestic water clean and healthy...
“... I moved to Townsville 12 years ago and I
now work with a lady who has lived in Townsville her whole life
(47 years). She happily tells everyone that the Townsville water
is perfect to drink and she has done so all of her life, yet she
suffers badly from fluorosis. This is especially evident by the multiple white spots and stripes in all of her teeth. I have met
who did not grow up in Townsville, and they are not affected in
the same way. Why do we persist with the risk when wedo not know
the facts? I have purchased a machine so my children will never have to drink fluoride. - Posted by: "Fluoride City" on

What's in Australia's publicly-supplied tap
Patrick Lion and AAP
ABOUT 20 times the recommended fluoride was accidentally added to
Brisbane water supplies two weeks ago.
Premier Anna Bligh today said the first breach of safety guidelines
had occurred between 9am and midday on Friday May 1.
The water should have had 1.5 milligrams per litre of fluoride but
test results released this week showed it had between 30 and 31 milligrams
About 300,000 litres of water was released from a fluoride treatment
at North Pine Dam.
The water flowed into as many as 4000 households in Brendale and
on Brisbane's northside. ~ from 14 May 2009.

"What are some of the facts about fluoride?
According to the handbook, Clinical Toxicology of Commercial Products,
is more poisonous than lead and just slightly less poisonous than
arsenic. It is a cumulative poison that accumulates in bone over
the years. According to the Physicians Desk Reference, "in hypersensitive
individuals, fluorides occasionally cause skin eruptionssuch as
atopic dermatitis, eczema, or urticaria. Gastric distress, headache,
and weakness have also been reported. These hypersensitive reactions
usually disappear promptly after discontinuation of the fluoride."
"From 1990 to 1992, the Journal of the American Medical
Association published three separate articles linking increased hip
fracture rates to fluoride in the water. In the March 22, 1990 issue of the New England Journal of Medicine, Mayo Clinic researchers reported
that fluoride treatment of osteoporosis increased hip fracture rate
and bone fragility."
What's the science of water distillation?
Rainwater is the most natural of all water, however, it
is only pure at the moment of condensation. As rain falls to the
earth through a polluted atmosphere it absorbs many impurities.
Hydros creates ‘rain in
a chamber’, intercepted at the point of condensation and brought
straight to you for use. The water has been heated so that it turns
to steam, leaving behind virtually all chemicals, inorganic minerals,
and impurities. It is then condensed back into water — clean,
Water cannot get any cleaner after being distilled
by the Healthstart Hydros.
With the post-distillation activated carbon filter, the Hydros Steam Distiller removes approximately 99.9% of contaminants found in a municipal water supply. The carbon filter has the added bonus of enhancing the taste of your distilled water.
The safest water is distilled water. Distillation
has been shown to remove heavy metals, chemicals, pesticides, particles,
and other harmful compounds. With calls to have fluoride added to
not only municipal water but also bottled water, distilling your
own water is one of the few sure-fire ways to ensure your water is
Not only drinking water but your tea and coffee will
taste better. Devices such as steam irons/kettles will last longer.
Even your pets will love distilled water.
How are Contaminants Removed?
At boiling point, the water evaporates into steam, traveling up
the boiling chamber. The steam is cooled and converted back into
liquid form. The end result is that most of the harmful contaminantsare left behind in the boiling chamber, with the remainder generally
having a lower evaporationpoint than water (and therefore evaporating
and floating away before the water ever boils). Withthe post-distillation
activated carbon filter, the Hydros removes approximately
99.9% of contaminants found in a municipal water supply. The carbon
filter has the added bonus of enhancing the taste of your distilled
Awareness is Everywhere - Yet Governments Ignore It
(Queensland Premier) Ms Bligh has just assured us that such an accident
will not happen again, but in North America, ever since fluoride
there have been hundreds of "reported" accidents due to
malfunctions of pumping equipment, computers, switches, motors, and
mistakes by technicians. Many people - including technicians - have
died, or been permanently injured in these overdose incidents. It
is obvious, when public health could be jeopardised, that said technicians need very special training but, given this government's attitude
to health and education, it seems possible that there won't be much
money invested in adequately training these technicians. Remember, fluoride is second only to arsenic in toxicity, is a proven carcinogen,
accumulates in bones and soft
tissues, and is particularly dangerous
for children, the elderly and people with kidney problems. Thousands of people die at the hands of medical professionals every year, because
of "accidents", but these people have had years of rigorous
training, know the condition of each patient, know the effects of
drugs, and control dosage, yet mistakes are made. Fluoride is deadly,
yet it is mandated by an inept government, and administered in uncontrolled
dosages, not by doctors or nurses, but by people with dubious qualifications.
This government is like a bunch of school children allowed free run
of a sweet shop. Are we going to continue to play russian roulette
at the hands of these clowns? - Hilton Devlin of Stanthorpe, May 16, 2009 - AAP website.
In the UK the Community Battle Continues as 9,000
sign Anti Fluoride Petition
From http://ukagainstfluoride.blogspot.com: The
names of hundreds of people opposed to adding fluoride to Totton's
water supply were
to a 9,000-strong petition to be
to the prime minister. The signatures were presented by Coun. David
Harrison to Hampshire Against Fluoridation (HAF) members Caroline
Place and Myra Metcalfe,
in front of the town's war memorial. The full list of objectors will
be submitted to 10 Downing Street later. Some 8,000 people in Totton are due to have fluoride in 2010 after the South Central Strategic
Health Authority (SHA) approved Southampton
Primary Care Trust's proposal, which affects some areas outside the
city because of the layout of the pipes. About 190,000 will be affected
in total and despite opponents losing the battle, they have not given
up and are also planning legal action.
Fluoridation could be further delayed if charges of biased consultation
are upheld and a re-run is ordered. Totton councillor Harrison told
the A&T: "It seems fitting
to present the petitions at the site of the war memorial — so
many people fought and died in the cause of preserving democracy
in this country. "It now seems that we are to be forced into
consuming this medication without our consent. I thank everyone who
has takcn the trouble to spell out their feelings. The battle is
still on-going ".

30th 2008 and
televised complaints and grievances about the dangers of fluoride in water.

just now discovering the shocking dangers of it and it sickens me
to know the role my government played in lies and deception to have
this happen and to let it continue": http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3RkwTJa1jPM
