It is absolutely crazy to think that portland's water isn't fluoridated. for such a forward leaning city, that is pretty ass backward, to use a technical term. i grew up in colorado, and i give alot of credit for my dental health to the fact that my water was fluoridated when i was growing up; i had fewer cavities growing up than my sisters who grew up in portland. i have never met anyone who suffered from discolored teeth from fluoride nor anyone adversely affected by fluoride. and having the sierra club and others argue on the point that adding .7ppm of fluoride is going to pollute the river is bunk. it isn't going to have any detrimental impact, where as all that shit, piss, cleaning chemicals, fertilizers, pesticides, oil, gasoline, diesel, plastic bags, and so on that are already accumulate in the river are where efforts should be placed to reduce pollution. the fact that the portland water bureau or whoever gives warning on not going into the river after it rains heavily because of the overflow is what they should be more concerned with, don't give me this bs that fluoride is going to to pollute the rivers. and if you swallow toothpaste when you're brushing your teeth the worst thing that will happen is that your stomach will be upset, you'd have to eat the whole tube to have to go to the hospital and even then you're not going to die. for f's sake, it's like you're all listening to jenny mccarthy for medical advice. it has been proven that fluoride is safe and extremely beneficial for your health.
