(November 12, 2012) Regular readers know that Natural News has been closely watching a situation in Portland, Ore., where city officials are pushing to add dangerous fluoride to the water.
City officials in Portland have done everything they can - openly and behind closed doors - to force residents of both the city and the surrounding area to accept fluoridation, though the citizenry has obviously been getting along just fine without it.
A similar battle was being waged much further east, in Wichita, Kan., but the voters there put a stake through the heart of that effort on Election Day, voting to reject fluoridation of that city's water supply.
There, 59 percent of voters soundly rejected the initiative, sending a message loud and clear that they aren't prepared to allow city officials to force such a dangerous substance literally down their throats - despite concerted efforts by pro-fluoridation groups to confuse them. Voters similarly rejected a fluoridation effort in 1964 and 1978, local radio station KAKE reported.
