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.
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
Evidence of selected nephrotoxic elements in Sri Lankan human autopsy bone samples of patients with CKDu and controls.
Background This article describes the analysis and interpretation of data relating to the presence of cadmium, lead, mercury and fluoride in human bone samples obtained from cadavers of patients dying of Chronic Kidney Disease of uncertain aetiology (CKDu) in a case-control study, which the authors believe to be the first in
High fluoride concentrations in the serum and bone of patients with chronic renal failure
The aim was to study the effect of ingested fluoride in patients with chronic renal failure (CRF). Serum fluoride concentrations were measured in 104 subjects, who formed three groups: nondialyzed CRF, dialyzed CRF, and a control group. The iliac bone fluoride was measured in 20 subjects. Serum, urine and water
Associations of fluoride intake with children's cortical bone mineral and strength measures at age 11.
OBJECTIVES: There is strong affinity between fluoride and calcium, and mineralized tissues. Investigations of fluoride and bone health during childhood and adolescence show inconsistent results. This analysis assessed associations between period-specific and cumulative fluoride intakes from birth to age 11, and age 11 cortical bone measures obtained using peripheral quantitative
