  •  Fluoride in water (5+ / 0-)

    I live in Portland and am mystified by this being a controversy. I have lived in many other places that have fluoride in their water supplies. I believe the scientific research that supports the fact that fluoride in the water helps improve dental health for those who drink it. There is a very free exchange of ideas here in Portland and always has been. That's one of the things about this city that make it a really exciting and fun place to be. Unfortunately, a lot of weird ideas also get a lot of very serious consideration. This being one of those issues. I voted FOR adding fluoride to the water and think that it should have been done a long time ago. I hope that most voters will vote in favor of it. But we shall see how the voters vote. On one hand, I think it would be great to have the health benefit of having fluoride in the water. On the other hand, it wouldn't surprise me if the majority of voters voted to not add fluoride to the water. I hope I get my fluoride. That's all I can say.
