(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.

Mayor Sam Adams says he grew up drinking fluoridated water, his hometown's website says otherwise

As part of his argument for why he supports fluoridation, Mayor Adams told reporters that he grew up drinking fluoridated water in his hometown of Newport, Oregon. This, he says, is the reason why his teeth are now white and allegedly very healthy.

But a quick trip over to the City of Newport's Public Works page reveals that Newport, Oregon does not, in fact, fluoridate its water supply (http://www.thecityofnewport.net/dept/pwk/waterquality.asp). The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention also confirms this, as its Oral Health Resources page shows that the fluoride concentration in Newport's public water supply is 0.00 mg/L. (http://apps.nccd.cdc.gov)

What this means is that Mayor Adams is lying to his constituents in a thinly-veiled effort to pull a fast one at the behest of aggressive fluoride lobbyists. It is these lobbyists, after all, that approached the City Council back in August to push for water fluoridation, and are apparently responsible for this sudden rush to get Portland fluoridated.

Like most other political decisions, it appears as though Mayor Adams was essentially bribed by the fluoride lobby to pretend as though fluoride is healthy and beneficial. Mayor Adams has even gone so far as to claim that the science against fluoride is based on "emotions and rhetoric," which is clearly not the case when taking even a cursory look at the mountain of evidence.

Mayor Adams, political sellout and industry whore

If Mayor Adams really took an honest look at the science behind fluoride, as he claims he has done, there is no way he could have arrived at the conclusion that fluoride is safe and beneficial for preventing tooth decay. Numerous studies, including a 2010 study out of New Zealand, have proven that ingesting fluoride does not prevent tooth decay, and that it actually causes much harm. (http://worldental.org)

Mayor Adams, Randy Leonard, and Nick Fish need to hear from you. These fluoride shills are either grossly and willfully misinformed about fluoride, or they have caved to industry pressures -- and most likely industry dollars -- to push toxic fluoride in the name of improving health. After all, if these three get their way, Portland taxpayers will be forced to fork over $5 million a year to have themselves poisoned with fluoride, which will be a big financial win for the fluoride industry.
