Teeth- Adverse Effects
Fluorinated and Fluoride Pesticides


Note: This is not an exhaustive list. This page was started in March 2007.
When time allows more information will be added.

The use of high doses increases the likelihood that potentially significant toxic effects will be identified. Findings of adverse effects in any one species do not necessarily indicate such effects might be generated in humans. From a conservative risk assessment perspective however, adverse findings in animal species are assumed to represent potential effects in humans, unless convincing evidence of species specificity is available.
