The Portland Fluoride Debate--an hour-long special

 On the eve of Portland City Council's vote to fluoridate the water supply, the issue has divided Portland's residents.  Is fluoride effective?  Is it safe?  Is there a significant difference between naturally occurring fluoride and the form that is used in tap water?   Is putting fluoride in the water the best way to promote its application?  Should we be putting medications, however effective and safe, in the public water supply?  Today's guests,  Kylie Menagh-Johnson (Everyone Deserves Healthy Teeth Coalition) and Dr. Paul Connett (Fluoride Action Network), are here to answer these questions from both sides of the fluoride divide.
