Too much fluoride in water could be damaging to teeth and bones
August 21, 2006
A paper from the National Academy of Sciences suggests that fluoride levels greater than 2 mg/L
can be damaging to teeth and bones, especially in children. While most water systems add fluoride in order to reach the suggested level of 1 mg/L at which fluoride is mainly helpful, there are some systems with naturally-occuring fluoride levels that exceed the 2 mg/L level that require fluoride removal.
