Australia Gives Nod to FiberWater

Largest Island Continent Targets Health Issues and Obesity

LOS ANGELES, CA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- January 17, 2007 -- After almost six years of applications, USA renowned health and nutrition advocate Suzanne Jaffe Stillman has been awarded patent # 2001239821 from Australia for her FiberWater -- water containing soluble fiber. FiberWater looks and tastes just like water yet delivers 25% of a person's daily fiber requirement. Australia is now one of forty (40) countries and is the sixth continent where patents have been issued or pending for the intellectual properties of Ms. Stillman. She is represented in Australia by Ken Finney of Cullen & Co.

FiberWater*, with all its credentials, is arguably the beverage with the greatest pedigree in the entire world!

Australian Prime Minister John Howard has long endorsed that children drink water with fluoride to combat tooth decay. At the same time, the Australian Health Ministers are seeking a solution to their nation's problem of childhood obesity. In numerous clinical studies it has been shown that soluble fiber addresses obesity by curbing appetite, stabilizing blood sugar levels, aiding digestion and removing toxins from the body, including cholesterol to maintain a healthy heart.

Nicole Kidman, an Academy Award-winning actress and recognized as the highest-paid film star, is at the forefront with her concerns and caring, especially with the health of Australian youngsters, and is a frequent visitor to and supporter of Sydney's Children's Hospital. Ms. Kidman has donated hundreds of thousands of dollars for the purchase of medical equipment. Says Professor Les White, Executive Director of the hospital, "Ms. Kidman contributes more than just monetary assistance, she also interacts and makes regular personal visits at the hospital with the children and their families, lifting their spirits and giving them hope!" Ms. Stillman intends to join Ms. Kidman by donating a portion of the proceeds from the sale of her products in Australia to aid Australian Children with disabilities and their families.

According to inventor Stillman, "Australia, with its long rich history of progressive and active social programs, can now provide a healthy alternative to benefit young and old alike in the 'land down under.'"

After ten years of research, testing, and protecting her intellectual properties, globally, she is now assembling an investor group to produce, market and distribute her FiberWater product line to eventually launch it worldwide.
