Senator Sir WALTER COOPER - I direct a question to the Minister representing the Minister for Health. I have been very interested in an article published in the "Producers' Review" of February 1965, under the heading " Sugar as Teeth Saver ", in which it is stated that hundreds of New

South Wales school children are taking part in an experiment which, it is hoped, will drastically cut tooth decay. The experiment is a special sugar diet in which a certain chemical substance, normally present in sugarcane but lost in the normal refining process, is added to refined sugar. It is stated that this substance could arrest decay in the teeth of adults if it were included in their diet. Will the Minister please inform the Senate whether he has any information regarding this experiment?
