Effects of fluoride emission on the morphoanatomy of three plant species endemics to Brazil using passive biomonitoring.
Abstract Fluoride is the most phytotoxic atmospheric pollutant. The objective of this study was to evaluate the effects of fluoride emissions by an aluminum smelter on three plant species endemics to Brazil, located at Parque Estadual do Itacolomi (PEI). The monitored species were Byrsonima variabilis (Malpighiaceae), Myrceugenia alpigena (Myrtaceae), and Eremanthus erythropappus (Asteraceae), which were […]Brazil Aluminum Industry
Municipality-Level Characteristics Associated with Very Low to Good Quality of Water Fluoridation in São Paulo State, Brazil, in 2015.
Introduction: Community water fluoridation (CWF) is a measure of recognized importance due to its effectiveness in preventing tooth decay at the population level. However, for the maximum benefit to be achieved, the high-quality standard of CWF must be maintained over time. Objective: To analyze the municipality-level characteristics associated with quality of water fluoridation in São […]Brazil
History of fluoridation policies as a strategy by the Brazilian Legislative Branch to fight dental caries, 1963 to 2019
[Article in Portuguese] Abstract The aim of this study was to analyze legislative proceedings on fluoridation policies in Brazil from 1963 to 2019. The theoretical reference was Pierre Bourdieu. A document search was performed on legislative proceedings that address the theme of fluoridation in Brazil as a public health measure and the discussions in the […]Brazil
Water fluoridation in the ten largest municipalities of the state of Tocantins, Brazil.Autho
Abstract [Abstract in Portuguese] Water fluoridation is a strategy for caries control recommended by the WHO. In Brazil, it is regulated by law but this program has not been successfully implemented in the North region. This research aimed to collect data on the existence of external control (heterocontrol) in the ten largest municipalities in the […]Brazil
Concentration effect and operational parameters on electrodialysis reversal efficiency applied for fluoride removal in groundwater
Abstract The increase in dental fluorosis in young people shows that the methods used to tackle the disease are ineffective. Typically, people around the world use groundwater for most activities, and this is the case of people especially in western Bahia, Brazil. In this region, aquifers can contain anomalous concentrations of fluoride. Thus, it is […]Brazil Water Treatment

Who to blame for groundwater fluoride anomaly in São Paulo, Brazil? Hydrogeochemistry and isotopic evidence
Highlights Fluoride up to 10 mg.L-1 is found in groundwater from São Paulo, Brazil. This fluoride is from natural origin. There is no fluorine related to the upper sedimentary aquifer. Fluoride is related to deep groundwater flow in the fractured aquifer. Abstracts Fluoride concentrations up to 10 mg.L-1 have been described in the groundwater of […]Brazil
Fluoride concentration and labeling requirements of mineral bottled water from Brazil
ABSTRACT Introduction: Mineral waters usually contain natural fluoride (F) in their composition, but the benefits and risks of the concentrations found are not clearly informed. Objective: The aim of this study was to determine the F concentration in mineral bottled waters and to check if the concentrations found: (1) matched with those informed on the […]Brazil
