There are six standard conservation laws of physics: energy, momentum, angular momentum, charge, baryon number and lepton number. It is not generally recognized that there are also a vast number of other conservation laws in physics which are rigorously conserved and quite inde-pendent of these six. A simple proof of these other conservation laws is given as well as examples. The implication of these additional conservation laws is discussed for elementary particles.
