Osteoporosis Treatments Affect Bone Matrix Maturation in a Rat Model of Induced Cortical Remodeling.
The example of sodium fluoride (NaF) clearly demonstrates an instance where increasing bone mass while altering maturation can negatively affect drug efficacy. NaF was a promising osteoporosis treatment because it increased BMD.5 However, it became evident that the treated patients were at increased risk of fracture,6, 7 which was later attributed to NaF-induced aberrant mineralization.8 […]
Chronic endemic fluorosis (with bone affections) in the Punjab.
First Page of Study Since the investigation of Black an,d McKay in 1916 into the problem of mottled enamel, and the definite association of this anomaly with the fluorine content of drinking waters by Churchill (1931, 1932), the matter of fluorine intoxication has been studied in detail by different workers in various parts of the […]
The removal of fluorides from water by sand filtration.
Letter Since it has been established that the dental disease in man known as “mottled enamel” is due to the drinking of water containing fluorine, the removal of fluorides by filtration has become an important problem. I have found that a contact filter 15 cm high, made of river sand passing a screen 60 to […]
Occurrence of fluorosis in endemic forms in Hyderabad state.
FIRST PAGE OF PAPER All animal tissues and plants contain fluorine in very small amounts. It is found in soils, rocks and water. No convincing evidence has been as yet produced to show that it performs any useful function in animal nutrition, or that it is essential for animal metabolism. During the past 15 years, […]
Maternal and fetal exposures to fluoride during mid-gestation among pregnant women in northern California.
Introduction In the United States (US), water and water-based beverages contribute to approximately 75% of the total fluoride intake among adults living in communities that fluoridate their water supply . The most recent estimates posted by the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), are that nearly three-fourths of the U.S. population with access […]

Fluoride Affects Dopamine Metabolism and Causes Changes in the Expression of Dopamine Receptors (D1R and D2R) in Chosen Brain Structures of Morphine-Dependent Rats.
Acute Fluoride Poisoning.
RECENTLY, the writer was consulted about treatment of acute fluoride poisoning, in view of the increasing use of fluorine and fluorine containing compounds in industries. In outlining the treatment recommended, a point which was stressed was that, aside from death due to the corrosive action of the poison, death may result very rapidly from reduction […]
Concerning baking soda-sodium fluoride poisonings in San Francisco.
To the Editor: You have, no doubt, read of the recent deaths in San Francisco of some persons from accidental poisoning by sodium fluoride. These cases are more remarkable in that there is so little in our medical literature relating to their occurrence. Herzog Medical Jurisprudence mentions cases in not recent accidental and suicidal poisonings […]
