Fluoride Action Network


In conclusion, exposure to high fluoride levels [30 & 100 ppm] in drinking water during early stages of life led to increased oxidative stress in the liver of rats as indicated by elevated MDA level and disturbed antioxidant defenses. Adaptive mechanisms in the form of increased activities of GSH-Px and GST operated to combat fluoride induced oxidative stress. But, increased oxidative stress led to depletion of the intrinsic free radical scavengers glutathione and ascorbic acid.
