Fluoride Action Network

FAN’s Translation Project

FAN regularly accesses and translates studies written in Chinese. FAN's collection includes over 40 studies examining fluoride's impacts on human health, including its effects on the brain, bones, fertility, the fetus, thyroid, and glucose metabolism.
