Fluoride levels of 600 samples of iliac crest bone in ash weight were correlated with age. They showed a near linearship with age. The yearly rate of accumulation of fluoride in bone was found to be 25.589 ug/g bone ash weight. This accumulation rate could be met by the ingestion of 0.867 mg/day of fluoride. The derivation of this figure is indicated and considered in relation to known ranges of dietary and other levels of fluoride ingestion.
Health risk assessment in children living in an urban area with hydrofluorosis: San Luis Potosí Mexico case study.
Background: Fluoride is an inorganic element, which can be found in high concentrations in groundwater. Its consumption and exposure have consequences on human health. The objective of this study was to evaluate fluoride exposure and develop a health risk assessment in children from an urban area with hydrofluorosis
Urinary minerals excretion among primary schoolchildren in Dubai—United Arab Emirates.
Introduction Urinary excretion of calcium (Ca), magnesium (Mg), phosphorus (P), iodine and fluoride is used to assess their statuses and/or the existence of metabolic abnormalities. In the United Arab Emirates (UAE), the urinary concentration of these minerals among children have not been documented. Materials and methods A cross-sectional study, including 593 subjects (232
Predictors of Plasma Fluoride Concentrations in Children and Adolescents.
Despite increasing concerns about neurotoxicity of fluoride in children, sources of fluoride exposure apart from municipal water fluoridation are poorly understood. We aimed to describe the associations of demographics, drinking water characteristics, diet, and oral health behaviors with plasma fluoride concentrations in U.S. children. We used data from 3928 6–19-year-olds
Environmental Fluoride 1977 by Rose & Marier
The Associate Committee on Scientific Criteria for Environmental Quality was established by the National Research Council of Canada in response to a mandate provided by the Federal Government to develop scientific guidelines for defining the quality of the environment. The concern of the NRC Associate Committee is strictly with scientific
Industrial fluorosis [Franke et al.]
This is a review of findings on workers in an aluminum plant with industrial fluorosis. Early signs of the disease are nocturnal back pains and restriction of the rotation of the trunk. Stage I of the disease usually occurs after 10 years, stage II after 15 years and stage III
