Portland Surrenders to Adding Toxic Fluoride in Drinking Water

Portland, one of the last urban American havens of fluoride-free water, is on the road paved with dollar bills to brain development impediment, lowered IQs, thyroid problems, and cancer. In other words, Portland will soon be offering its citizens toxic fluoride in drinking water.

Mayor Sam Adams betrayed his populace—which has repeatedly voted down fluoridation—and joined others in the pockets of the fluoride industry. In defense of his newfound alliance, Mayor Adams claims that he grew up drinking fluoridated water in his hometown of Newport, Oregon—hence his pearly whites.

A Foundation of Lies

Mayor Adams, however, has been caught in a lie: the City of Newport’s Public Works page and the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention claim that Newport doesn’t, in fact, fluoridate its water. Either the mayor is sorely misinformed or he’s resorted to lying for lobbyists—not an uncommon practice, sadly.

His healthy teeth may (if they are indeed healthy) may owe their welfare to adequate levels of vitamin A and D as well as good brushing and flossing practices.

Fluoride in Drinking Water Hurts the Brain, Causes Cancer

Research by the Cochrane Oral Health Group, in fact, shows that ingesting fluoride does next to nothing for dental health. Meanwhile, a major Harvard study published in a federal government journal found that even at levels as low as 1 ppm (the American standard), fluoride lowers IQ and negatively affects brain development.

Dr. Dean Burk of the Cycochemistry Section at the National Cancer Institute says that, according to his research, fluoride increases tumor growth rates by 25%. Although this research has been ongoing for decades, the U.S. government only recently admitted the chemical’s neurotoxicity to children — they said nothing of adults – and recommended lowered levels across the country. This top scientist found that about 10,000 cancer deaths have occurred due to water fluoridation since 1977.

Communities are attempting to end water fluoridation, mainstream news is acknowledging its negative effects, and even a number of professional dentists have recognized the dangers of fluoride, and spoken out against its use and distribution. So why is Portland adding toxic fluoride in drinking water?

On the five-member City Council, Amanda Fritz and Dan Saltzman oppose fluoridation while Randy Leonard, Nick Fish, and now Sam Adams are in favor for it. No date has been set for the vote on the issue.

I hope the citizens of portland will fight this by trying to get a referandum, give out literature on fluoride, writing editorials in the local papers, & picketing the mayor & councilpeoples homes. It works.

There are two Portlands in the USA. Oregon and Maine. The article is missing a piece of standard journalism -identifying the place. I presume you are talking about Portland, Oregon.

1st of all, the Mayor should be fired. 2ndly,I would suggest that some of the activists there go check out the local municipal water treatment centers & take pics of the 'bags' of flouridation chemicals, they are usually bright yellow with poison indicted strongly on the front. For you who are in opposition to being a water filtration sysyem for phosphate fertilizer factories, i would suggest going to this website & bone up on what yu need to know to fight this; www.fluoridealert.com * there will still be some in your area who are still under the illusion ( because of 60 yrs of propaganda) that fluoride is actually still good for your teeth...hit them with the reality of the COST of fluoridating municipal water systems, the need for expensive equipment & the cost of replacing pipes etc, which will be corroded far faster than normal because fl is one ofthe most highly corrosive elements in the earth. you might also want to have some town meetings with a enerous array of fluoridated items, like rodent poison, insecticides, pesticides & herbicides along with the standard toothpastes from your grocery store. Also bring multiple years of the Medical Desk Dictionary to show them under the "poisoning' section int he back that fluoride is 10xs more toxic than lead & almost equivalent to Arsenic... On the fluoride alert site you will find the history of fluoridation , used to 'pacify' POWs n Nazi Germany and also you will find some pics of the extrememly corroded teeth of children who now have to have extensive dental work done to repair the damage done by fluoridation. Remind people that what is doing to their teeth, it i salso doing to their bones..fluoirde REPLACES calcium anywhere in the body, also tell them that it passes the blood-brain barrier, which is why it is used in anti-depressants, etc. it can also carry other chemicals with it...such as aluminum...alzheimer's anyone? Distillation will work for a bit, but distilled water is not good over long periods of time. RO water is not PERFECT but it is not a NEW water, so it will not leach your body of minerals like distilled will. either way, you must supplement with minerals to give your body what it needs. Find one tht do not contain fl in any amount if possible. FIGHT THIS, KEEP ON FIGHTING IT.
