Fluoride Action Network


Gastroscopy to 35 patients with fluorosis, 32 with arsenic-fluorosis, and 25 control had been performed to study the influence of fluorosis on arsenic-fluorosis on the gastric mucosa. There was significant difference on gradient and activity of chronic gastritis among the three groups, but there was no significant difference in the fluorosis and arsenic-fluorosis [groups]. It appears that pathological changes of gastric mucosa of fluorosis and arsenic-fluorosis may be caused only by fluorosis.
