I don’t understand why there should be a debate regarding adding fluoride to the water in this state. There are counties in Oregon where the water is fluoridated, and counties where it is not.

The question is: Has the population in the areas where the water has been fluoridated benefited in any way? Are their dental checkups better than the population in the non-fluoridated areas, for example? Or have they benefited or not benefited in other ways?

These are measurable standards readily available. There should be no debate, just some simple research. I’m sure many of us would be interested in the results.
