PORTLAND DECIDES TO POISON ITS CITIZENS

The fluoride used in water fluoridation is a byproduct of INSECTICIDE and FERTILIZER production. It is poisonous.

(NaturalNews) One of the last remaining urban bastions of fluoride-free water, the city of Portland, Oregon, is about to join the ranks of most other U.S. cities in forcibly medicating its residents with a drug that has been scientifically shown to impede proper brain development, lower IQ, damage thyroid function, and even cause cancer.

Oregon's Herald and News reports that Portland Mayor Sam Adams has decided to join two other fluoride supporters on the five-member City Council, Randy Leonard and Nick Fish, in voting to support the mass medication of Portlanders via the public water supply. The other two members, Amanda Fritz and Dan Saltzman, have expressed opposition to water fluoridation.

At this time, there is no official date for when the council will vote on the issue. But unless the people of Portland and their supporters around the country raise hell to the Portland City Council in the following days and weeks, this three-two majority will eventually force mandatory water fluoridation to become law, despite the fact that Portlanders have repeatedly voted down water fluoridation efforts in the past.
