NEW YORK (Reuters Health) - Fluoride in water has helped prevent millions of cavities, but the results of a new study suggest that infants who drink large amounts of beverages that contain fluoride may be at risk for discoloration of their primary teeth.

In particular, infants who drank the most water-based beverages, particularly infant formulas made with water, were more likely to develop a condition called dental fluorosis when they were older.

I FELT moved to send the following short submission to the Deniliquin council, based on our interesting experience with water fluoridation in Geelong.

The State Government proposed fluoridation for Geelong early in 2002.

A community group, BAFF, brought international toxicologists to Geelong and ran public seminars in July, 2002, and June last year.

(April 1, 2004) On August 19, 1994, Linus Pauling, PhD died of cancer at age 93 at his home in Big Sur, California. The only person to win two unshared Nobel prizes (for Chemistry in 1954 and Peace in 1962), Pauling, during the last 25 years of his life, became a vocal and uniquely effective advocate for vitamin C and nutritional medicine. He has been given credit by many people for almost single handedly making vitamin C the most popular and widely used nutritional supplement in the world and for helping to significantly advance the fields of clinical nutrition, primary prevention, and "orthomolecular" medicine (a term he coined).

News from Harvard Medical School indicates that a higher intake of vitamin D from supplements may lower a woman's risk for multiple sclerosis, which is caused by damage to the myelin sheath that protects nerves. Researchers examined data collected from more than 187,000 women participating in the original Nurses' Health Study and the Nurses' Health Study II, begun 10 years later. Women with the highest vitamin D intake from supplements - 400 IU or more per day - were 40 percent less likely to develop MS than those who took no supplements.

SMOKE AND MIRRORS
The great Illusionist numbers called AIDS STATISTICS

By PROFESSOR JENS JERNDAL

F.W.A.I.M.

Statistics are supposedly the rock solid foundation of modern science, a science exclusively concerned with objectively determined quantities, measurements and numbers. Unfortunately, it is easy to produce erroneous or biased statistical results unintentionally by just overlooking certain complicated and specific rules for sampling or weighing the data.

But the most fascinating thing about statistics is that a clever statistician can work magic with the numbers and quite intentionally create the illusion of proving or disproving almost anything.

Critics blasted last week's decision, particularly in light of government warnings about other types of mercury exposure.

Has the Romance Gone? Was It the Drug?

For most people taking antidepressants, the risk of a diminished sex drive may seem like a worthwhile sacrifice for the benefits from the drugs.

Up to 70 percent of patients on antidepressants report sexual side effects, yet the number of Americans who take the drugs has ballooned since Prozac was introduced in the late 1980's. Last year, studies show, doctors in the United States wrote 213 million prescriptions for antidepressants.
