No toxic waste is required, thank you.

Fluoride is bad news.
The good news is this!  Right now Portland, Oregon
has some of the cleanest water on the planet.

A proposal to dump toxic waste in public drinking water, without asking  permission, is a bad idea.  Those who orchestrated this five million dollar swindle have betrayed our trust. No means no: the people said no twice.

Dumping contaminants into the Portland area water supply, thus compromising the whole water table, makes no sense. The only ones who profit from this unseemly arrangement are corporate CEO's getting paid millions for toxic waste and a public snow job... on our dime.  We can do better.

The most current science indicates fluoridation is ineffective and potentially dangerous. Fluoride has never been approved for human consumption by the FDA.  It is not appropriate to sidestep or dismiss this health issue. Vote for clean water, vote No on allowing industrial waste in drinking water.

Why Should You Vote NO on Fluoridation?

1. Fluoridation Chemicals Threaten Clean Water
Fluoridation would mean adding 1.1 millions pounds a year of fluorosilicic acid, an unpurified industrial byproduct of fertilizer production to some of the world’s best water. Read more

2. Recent Science Shows Health Risks
Major scientific studies from the National Academy of Sciences and others have reported serious uncertainties and risks from fluoride in drinking water, including decreased childhood IQ and thyroid disorders. Recent science has also led to warnings against regularly mixing infant formula with fluoridated water to avoid excessive exposure for infants. Read more

3. Better Alternatives For Kids' Teeth and Health

Across the United States cities that have been fluoridated for decades are still facing dental health problems. Increasing access to care and prevention education is the only real solution to improving kids' dental health.
Instead of spending up to $7 million on a fluoridation plant and $500,000 or more a year on fluoridation chemicals, a comparable investment in increased access to care would better help at-risk kids while protecting the entire community from the health risks of fluoridation.
