Industries that use fluoride-containing materials are usually aware of their toxicity and adopt adequate medical measures. It has been found that workers in factories who have not been considered as subjected to fluorine hazard and therefore have not been controlled had significantly elevated urinary fluoride levels. Most workers in a medically controlled fertilizer plant had normal urinary levels. Maintenance workers were found to have higher values, up to 12 mg/liter.
Relationship between bone mineral loss and urinary fluoride concentration in postmenopausal Japanese women
The purpose of this study was to evaluate the relationship between bone mineral loss and urinary fluoride (F) concentration in postmenopausal Japanese women. Lumbar spinal bone mineral density (BMD) was measured by dual-energy X-ray absorptiometry (DXA) at baseline and 1 year later in 94 premenopausal and 100 postmenopausal women. None
[Analysis on clinical characteristics of 316 patients with hydrofluoric acid burns].
Objective: To investigate the clinical characteristics of patients with hydrofluoric acid (HF) burns. Methods: Clinical data of 316 patients with HF burns admitted to Zhejiang Quhua Hospital from January 2004 to December 2016 were retrospectively analyzed. Patients were divided into non and mild poisoning group (NMP, n=157), moderate poisoning group (MP,
Studies on fluorosis in Mehsana District of North Gujarat.
A survey was conducted in eighteen fluoride endemic villages in Mehsana District of North Gujarat (India). The individuals afflicted with fluorosis were examined for apparent mottled teeth and skeletal complications. Samples of urine and blood of these individuals along with drinking water were collected and compared with samples obtained from
Fluoride exposure and CALCA methylation is associated with the bone mineral density of Chinese women.
Highlights Excessive fluoride exposure is positively related to CALCA methylation in women. CALCA methylation in Chinese women is negatively associated with BMD. Long-term excessive fluoride exposure is negatively related to BMD in women. BMD in women with CALCA hypermethylated is more susceptible to fluoride. The statistical associations are age-specific
[Level of exposure to fluorides by the consumption of different types of milk in residents from an area of Mexico with endemic hydrofluorosis].
INTRODUCTION: Several studies have shown the presence of fluorosis (DF) in primary dentition, suggesting an exposure to fluorides (F-) in early childhood. Breast milk is recommended as an exclusive food until 6 months of age. Although it is mentioned that only a small amount of F- can be eliminated by
