WESTON A PRICE
Weston A Price’s classic book is available to read free online
Here is an excerpt from his chapter on New Zealand, where the Maori population went from having the best teeth in the world, to the worst, in less than 100 years, due to the introduction of the appalling diet of European settlers:
“In an examination of 250 Maori skulls from an uncivilized age, I found tooth decay present in only two skulls. The average incidence of tooth decay in the pre-modernised Maori was 1.2 %.
At the present time, (1937) we found that amongst Maori school children living under
European conditions, 95 % of them had decayed teeth.
In many districts members of the older generations revealed 100 % normally formed dental arches. The incidence of normally formed dental arches in the modernized groups ranged from 60% down to 0 %.”
“Since the discovery of New Zealand, the Maori have had the reputation of having the finest teeth and finest bodies of any race in the world. These faces are typical. Only about one tooth per thousand teeth had been attacked by tooth decay before they came under the influence of the white man”
“With the advent of the white man in New Zealand tooth decay has become rampant.
The suffering from decaying and abscessed teeth is very great in the modernized Maori”
WATER IN WELLINGTON
PETONE AQUIFER FOUNTAIN
Clean drinking water free of the toxins fluoride, chlorine, and aluminium, is available directly from the Petone Aquifer, Corner of Jackson and Buick Streets, Petone Wellington
A handy trick for filling up bottles at the Petone fountain is to stick a plastic card such as a Flybuys card in the side and you can leave it going and just swap over the bottles.
DOWSE LOWER HUTT FOUNTAIN
The same clean drinking water is also available from the Dowse Gallery Lower Hutt taps, 45 Laings Road Lower Hutt Wellington.
These outlets have the advantage of being faster flowing and if you put a heavy object such as a brick or a full container of water on the button, they will rapidly fill big containers.
