Urine Fluoride Levels Following Ingestion of Fluoridated Domestic Salt over Three Years

Many authors state that, provided the air and soil are free of F pollution, the most important source of fluorine for humans up to a level of 5 mg/1 F is drinking water; the urine F level depends on the drinking water; the fluoride content of the water drunk and of the urine is almost identical (BREDEMANN, 1956; DOMAZALKA and LASSOCINSKA, 1969; W.H.O., 1970; GEDALIA, 1958; JIRASKOVA and RUZICKA, 1959; LIKINS et al., 1956; McCLURE and KINSER, 1944; SAVAGE, 1967; SMITH, 1966; TRUSWELL, 1966; ZIPKIN et al., 1956).
