Discussion of fluoridation of Portland's drinking water

Portland City Council will take public testimony September 6th on adding fluoride to drinking water and are expected to vote soon after.

Voices on this show are: Kimberly Kaminski, Executive Director of Oregon Citizens for Safe Drinking Water claims that three council votes are pledged before any public input and before recent scientific research is digested by the public health community.

Dr Gary Oxman, Multnomah County Health Officer largely sings the praises of fluoridation and acknowledges the new Harvard study showing higher concentrations of fluoride leading to lower IQs. He also explains public health as a holistic practice and would consider any added stress to the community as a negative health impact of fluoridating water.

Another look at Portland's foreclosure resistance movement

Another look at Portland's foreclosure resistance movement

Last month we looked at the efforts to stop the city from evicting a northeast Portland woman from her home. This week we follow up on the city's efforts to use code violations to remove occupants from the house and the response from foreclosure resistance activists. This week, Jo Ann talks with activist Ahjamu Umi of Black Working Group about the importance of the struggle over this house as well as efforts to support other Portlanders who find themselves the victims of high-handed banks and mortgage companies.
