The Portland fluoride debate

Today's the vote over whether to add fluoride to Portland's municipal water supply. Smugtown, USA, where people (rightly) sneer at climate-change deniers for ignoring science, is a hotbed of fluoride denial and general head-up-its-own-assism: [quote]Some fluoride-favoring voters feel outdone. "I think they're ahead of us with stilt walkers and flame jugglers," said Shauna Ballo, a volunteer with Healthy Kids/Healthy Portland, which is campaigning for fluoride. [quote]Many "No" activists say they oppose fluoridation because it represents lack of choice. "The government does not have the right to make a major medical decision for the public at large. That decision flies in the face of everything it means to be a Portlander," said Tacee Webb, who runs what she calls "an all-Gluten-Free Preschool."
