New information has come out this week that could have an impact on the upcoming May twenty-first vote on water fluoridation in Portland.

A lab test of the fluoridation compound proposed for Portland’s water supply found high levels of arsenic in the compound. The test was commissioned by the anti-fluoridation group ‘Clean water Portland’.

In addition, the Oregon Health Authority just released the latest figures on children’s dental health in Multnomah County, showing significant improvements in all categories, and bringing into question the county’s claim that fluoridation of water is necessary to improve dental health.
