Fluoride and Bones

I just read an interesting article in the New England Journal of Medicine titled Skeletal Fluorosis Due to Excessive Tea Drinking. The article was showing bone deformity that was caused by drinking an estimated fluoride intake, >20 mg per day.

While that is an extreme amount, and in this case was due to the woman drinking a pitcher of tea a day made with fluoride-enhanced water for several years, when you consider that fluoride is put into toothpaste as well as some community water-supplies, it is certainly possible that anyone who drinks a lot of water/tea/coffee is subject to potential problems.

I stopped using toothpaste with fluoride many years ago when I learned what it can do to the bones (albeit, it helps teeth, but not bones). I’m not a doctor, and I’m not giving medical/dental advice, but I wanted to share the information with you so you can do your own checking and make informed decisions about your health.

Have a great day,
