I'm not opposed to fluoride but i thought "well it's a democracy, what's the harm of a public vote?" It was easier than starting a discussion. Now i see that every signature was a de facto vote for the opposition. Sure, you have doctors on your side that opposite fluoride, but you can find people on either side of any argument and really, you have chiropractors. Are these the same people that don't trust vaccinations because they're made by large corporations? Why, because locally crafted, artisanal vaccinations would be better? Do you know how surprised i was to find out that Portland doesn't fluoridate? By your argument, every major city in the US should have succumbed to ruins by now.
Next time i won't take the easy way out.
