Water Test to Prevent Fluorine Associated Diseases

When water passes over certain minerals, it can dissolve fluoride, which results in elevated levels of fluoride in drinking water sources in parts of East Africa, India, China and North America. Levels of fluoride in drinking water are routinely monitored and controlled at treatment works in developed countries. However, in areas of the world where there is no piped water system or treatment works, people rely on drawing untreated water from wells, which can often be contaminated with higher than recommended levels of fluoride.
