They might as well put the fluoride right into soda, as cavities are caused by sugar and not a fluoride deficiency.
99% of all fluoride added to water ends up on your lawn, down your toilet, into your shower drain, used in washing clothes or dishes – so why on earth would they believe this is the best solution to solve a cavity concern that is typically due to a high sugar diet?
Portland needs some immediate help in challenging this misguided decision. Clean Water Portland is working to collect 20,000 signatures as part of a referendum to ensure the public has the right to vote on this issue. It shouldn’t be decided by a few council members under heavy pressure from the ADA and dental professionals.
Please donate to Clean Water Portland as they actively collect signatures over the next two weeks to ensure this public vote takes place. If the signatures are collected, it will put an immediate freeze on Portland’s plan to fluoridate their citizens.
