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.
Evaluation of a fluorosis prevention educational program: A randomized field trial.
Background: A 2-group randomized field trial was conducted to evaluate the impact of a fluorosis educational preventive program in mother´s knowledge and practices, and on the urine fluoride concentration of their preschool children. Material and Methods: A group of 139 mother-child pairs participated in the study. Randomly, children were assigned to an intervention
Fluoride in drinking water and human urine in Southern Haryana, India.
The objective of this study was to determine the fluoride content in drinking water and urine samples of adolescent males aged 11–16 years living in Southern Haryana, India. A total of 30 drinking water sources in the studied habitations were assessed for fluoride contamination. Fluoride was estimated in the urine
The effect of fluoride on bone
Conclusions Although it is well known that the ingestion of high levels of fluoride can give rise to severe lesions in the skeletal tissues, such effects have never been found radiographically in persons using a water supply, containing less than 4 p.p.m fluorlde throughout life. A histological study of thirty ribs taken
Fluoride Increase in Saliva and Dental Biofilm due to a Meal Prepared with Fluoridated Water or Salt: A Crossover Clinical Study.
Knowledge about fluoride delivery to oral fluids from foods cooked with fluoridated water and salt is scarce, and no study has evaluated fluoride concentrations in saliva or biofilm during meal consumption. In this randomized double-blind crossover study, 12 volunteers ingested meals (rice, beans, meat, and legumes) prepared with nonfluoridated water
Urinary Fluoride Excretion after a Single Application of Fluoride Varnish in Preschool Children.
PURPOSE: To assess urinary fluoride excretion after topical application of a commercial fluoride varnish in preschool children. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Twelve healthy children, 2.5-6.0 years of age, were enrolled in a placebo-controlled cross-over trial. After a 5-day run-in period, the morning urine was collected as baseline. One hour after breakfast, 0.1
