Water Fluoridation


I know that this topic has been brought up before on this blog, and that many of our readers are global. But this is one of the most contentious issues in my community! This month the city of Portland will vote if we should Fluoridate our public water supply. People are polarized on this issue. Some of the people are in support of adding  Fluoride.
