For the 4th time since 1956, Portland voters reject fluoridation
from The Oregonian
Fluoride supporters, it appeared, had everything going for them. Five Portland, Ore., city commissioners had voted to add fluoride to the city water supply. Health advocacy groups, and many of the city's communities of color, lined up behind the cause. And proponents outraised opponents 3-to-1. But none of that was enough. For the fourth time since 1956, Portlanders rejected a plan to fluoridate city water, 60 percent to 40 percent.
