Should Portland fluoridate its water supply? Since the 1950s, in four separate studies, the City Club has answered, “Yes.” Recently, a group of dentists created the Tri-County Fluoridation Forum (TCFF) has raised the issue again. At the request of this group, the City Club Research Board and Board of Governors reviewed the Club’s past positions on fluoridation. Board members also reviewed recent scientific information on fluoridation from the Center of Disease Control and other sources. On April 11, 2002, the Board of Governors approved the following resolution, which reaffirms the Club’s support for fluoridation of Portland’s water supply.
