  •  70 mg of water will not kill you. (0+ / 0-)

    There's a 50/50 shot that 70mg of Hexafluorosilicic acid will.

    Europe is not lacking in basic water treatment infrastructure.  That argument can best be described as "fucking goofy".

    There's no question that fluoride strengthens tooth enamel.   There's also no question - at all - that too much of it is harmful.

    Even the CDC recently adjusted its recommendation for both the ideal and maximum "safe" levels of fluoride.

    The science based approach is to continue to reevaluate what is the ideal level of water fluoridation.  Unless we know the naturally occurring level of fluoride in the water supply in Portland, it's impossible for us to even opine as to whether additional fluoridation is a wise move or an idiotic notion.

    But, Dr. Strangelove is always good for a belly laugh, so fuck science.
