Fluoride Status and Cardiometabolic Health: Findings from a Representative Survey among Children and Adolescents.
Abstract There is preliminary evidence to suggest a positive association between fluoride exposure and higher blood pressure among children, but population-based biomarker studies are lacking. Thus, data from the 2013/2014 and 2015/2016 cycles of the US-based National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey (NHANES) were analysed to evaluate the association between plasma fluoride concentrations and blood […]
Fluoride exposure and duration and quality of sleep in a Canadian population-based sample.
Excerpts Introduction Inorganic fluoride can naturally occur in the environment or be introduced through industrial processes or fluoride supplementation programs. A primary method of fluoride supplementation is community water fluoridation, which refers to the practice of adding fluoridation chemicals to drinking water for the purpose of controlling dental caries. Ingestion of fluoridated drinking water is […]

Fluoride exposure and sleep patterns among older adolescents in the United States: a cross-sectional study of NHANES 2015–2016.
Abstract Background Fluoride from environmental sources accumulates preferentially in the pineal gland which produces melatonin, the hormone that regulates the sleep-wake cycle. However, the effects of fluoride on sleep regulation remain unknown. This population-based study examined whether chronic low-level fluoride exposure is associated with sleep patterns and daytime sleepiness among older adolescents in the United […]
Early Life Exposure in Mexico to Environmental Toxicants (ELEMENT) Project.
Excerpts ELEMENT 2015 Between 2015 and 2018, we followed-up children in ELEMENT 2011 through late adolescence and included additional similarly aged participants from the original cohorts. Goals of this study were similar in scope to ELEMENT 2011, but included new research foci: (1) characterising long-term consequences of early life exposure to fluoride; (2) exploring epigenetic […]
A comparative analysis of the results of multiple tests in patients with chronic industrial fluorosis
There have been few domestic reports on the effects of chronic industrial fluorine poisoning on the adult nervous system. In order to understand the state of higher functions of the central nervous system in patients with chronic industrial fluorosis, in November 1993 we performed X-rays, intelligence testing, fingernail fluorine content testing, electroencephalographs, and tests of […]
