Greg and Gail Woods are at the forefront of solutions to keep our water safe and pure.
It all started with Gail hearing about fluoride and the Government’s agenda through Jonathan Coleman’s members’ bill to Parliament. About two years ago, Gail began searching for ideas to turn around the attitudes of our country’s leaders. She came across and became involved with Mary Byrne of Fluoride Free NZ. She found Mary to be a great lady with undying energy to stop the draconian practices of adding chemicals to our water supplies. This gave Gail the motivation to do more.
Previously, Gail had a good rapport with Dr Alistair Humphrey, Canterbury Medical Officer of Health, through her discussions on fluoridation, with him. However, in January 2018, after the issue of chlorinating the Christchurch water supply was raised in Council, Gail phoned Dr Humphrey on his cell phone to ask: “What about the bottle-fed babies overdosing on Chlorine?” Apparently, he hung up on Gail because she believes he knew that he was sanctioning something that wasn’t right.
Gail was brought to tears thinking of all the babies as well as the sick and elderly and all the people with major and minor problems affected by chlorine. She thought, what can I do to help the people of Christchurch? With the Christchurch City Council having made the decision to chlorinate, under the cloud that the Medical Officer of Health could enforce it, anyway, Gail formed a protest on the 9th February, but it wasn’t supported like it should have been.
Her next step was to find a solution. Greg and Gail teamed up with a microbiologist, Mark Durham who has a Postgraduate Diploma in Public Health and has been in the water industry for over 20 years. From him they learnt about how the chlorine reacts with the organic compounds in the water and how to choose the right types of water filters for home use. It was then that they decided to set up a business to supply the most effective water filters for people’s health.
Things moved quickly, and they managed to book the last stand at the Christchurch Home Show, three days before it opened. They found that the people who came through their stand were very upset about chlorination of the town’s water supply. They were all grateful for the information being supplied through Greg and Gail’s research. The Home Show was a great success because customers were shown the most effective water filter systems for their home.
Gail has always maintained that the public don’t have to believe what she is saying but they ought to do their own research through the internet. People doing their own research will find the truth and the truth will free them from the misinformation emanating from international self-interest groups.
