I grew up in Albuquerque, New Mexico where they have fluoridated the water for many years, and I am just fine. In fact, I have never had a cavity in my entire life. I have also never heard of anyone in any place who has suffered adverse effects from fluoride. I don't really understand what the big deal is. Maybe it'll cost a lot of money? That is probably about the strongest argument I can make against fluoridation. Otherwise, I do not see it doing harm. The whole thing seems silly. Perhaps everyone on both sides of this issue should focus their efforts more on helping low-income families in Portland gain access to better dental and health care.
