All human beings are born free and equal in dignity and rights. They are endowed with reason and conscience and should act towards one another in a spirit of brotherhood.

(Article 1 of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights in Burmese)

No one shall be subjected to arbitrary arrest, detention or exile.

Article 9:

Those who have the kindness of benefit for others

For the sake of living beings, do not relax their powers.

Though these holy beings bear a heavy burden,

They never put it down and dwell in discouragement.

*the Great Chariot Sutra*

Burma is known as a golden land made of several ranges (or ‘Yoma’ in Burmese) where thousands of tribal memories, wisdoms, religions, cultures and beauties of plants and animals dwell. The rivers, all of them are indeed important to the people and other existences, snake through these beautiful mountainous regions and flow from the north to the south where Indian Ocean is. The peoples, Burma has 103 ethnics, all of them used to be really generous and all they knew was to give.

Since the modern day’s dictators have systematically destroyed, now the golden land is famous for its narcotic trades, refugees, migrant workers and various atrocities and sufferings.

One day, we’ll be free again and the land will be again famous for its beauty.


They put all these chemicals in the water and only to be removed anyway?!  Smart system?!

Government wants you to use water filter but they don’t tell you directly? They don’t actually inform the danger to the public directly and how to use water properly.  
Water Fluoridation: Questions and Answers - NSW Health

…Kidney Health Australia also state that there is no evidence that consumption of optimally fluoridated water causes chronic kidney disease or poses any risks for people with established chronic kidney disease.
In the case of dialysis, fluoride concentrations in the final feed water to the dialysis machine must comply with established water guidelines, and be less than 0.2 mg/L. The dialysis water must be deionised (free of electrically charged particles) to ensure it is able to filter the dialysis patient’s blood appropriately. This issue relates to all electrically charged particles, not just fluoride. Dialysis machines use reverse osmosis to remove fluoride and other electrically charged particles…

Is individual consent required to fluoridate?
…in Article 6 states that any preventive, diagnostic or medical therapeutic intervention is only to carried out with prior free and informed consent (UNESCO 2005). The view of most public health bodies is that fluoridation is not an individual therapeutic intervention and individual free and informed consent is not required...
So they just poison the mass and believing they’re doing the right thing!
What is worse: untreated water that can be boiled or the treated water that can't be boiled? 

When a bloom is detected, alternative sources of water should be sought for human consumption and domestic purposes until specialised treatment processes can be introduced. Boiling water does not destroy algal toxins and can, in fact, release more toxins as the blue-green algae are killed.

Australian Drinking Water Guidelines 6 2011
Chapter 1 Introduction
Page 1
Safe drinking water is essential to sustain life. Therefore, every effort needs to be taken to ensure that drinking water suppliers provide consumers with water that is safe to use.
The Australian Drinking Water Guidelines (the ADWG) are intended to provide a framework for good management of drinking water supplies that, if implemented, will assure safety at point of use. The ADWG have been developed after consideration of the best available scientific evidence. They are designed to provide an authoritative reference on what defines safe, good quality water, how it can be achieved and how it can be assured. They are concerned both with safety from a health point of view and with aesthetic quality
NSW Gov Link

NSW Health Response Protocol: for the management of physical and chemical quality
The Australian Drinking Water Guidelines have set aesthetic and health related guideline values for physical and chemical characteristics. Aesthetic guideline values are set at the concentration that ensures water is aesthetically pleasing in terms of taste and odour, and can be used without causing corrosion of plumbing or staining. Health-related guideline values are set at the concentration that, based on current knowledge, does not result in any significant risk to the health of the consumer over a lifetime of consumption.
 Why do governments tolerate the following claim?

Is Tap Water Safe for Drinking?
Until the late 1990s, Australians took pride in their safe drinking water. Then, in 1998, just when Sydney was preparing to host the 2000 Olympics, Sydney Water was forced to send out an alert warning that water from its largest treatment plant contained dangerous parasites and was unsafe to drink. Although the problem was eventually addressed, the source of the contamination was never pinpointed and the incident marked the beginning of the end of the public’s trust in the safety of tap water for drinking.
After that dangerous and embarrassing incident, sales of bottled water began to soar and many Australians swore off tap water. Over a decade has passed since then, though, and now an argument rages between those who think bottled water is an expensive rip-off and those who don’t believe enough is done to safeguard our tap water. Two of the gravest concerns about tap water centre around heavy metals and the chlorine that is used to disinfect the water:

·         Heavy metals are known to cause a number of neurological and physical diseases.
·         High levels of chlorine are linked with a number of health issues, including miscarriages and birth defects.
