Can drinking green tea give you fluorosis?


Most green teas contain fluoride; this is undisputed. I believe it depends upon the soil it's grown in, and when it is harvested (more mature leaves have more fluoride).

    Tea is very high in fluoride content. Fluoride in tea is much higher than the Maximum Contaminant Level (MCL) set for fluoride in drinking water. Dental fluorosis (mottled teeth) is the first visible sign of fluoride poisoning. Studies conducted on tea consumption in Tibetan children by Cao et al. found both dental (51.2%) and skeletal (32.83%) fluorosis, mainly as a result rom drinking brick tea, also known as milk tea (39). More studies by Cao and others reported similar results (40,41) as did a study from Chile showing dental fluorosis risks in 22.1% of the children consuming tea as a main beverage (42). Many similar studies on tea as well as other beverages have been published in the journals of the American Dental Association (ADA) or American Medical Association (AMA) themselves.

    Almost all green teas that are sold in our market today have higher concentration of fluoride (4-6ppm). Please be vigilant on the proper labeling of the content. BFAD should look into these matter seriuosly.

    You'd more likely get it from tap water than green tea. If You're really worried get the deflorided green tea and drink well water.

    Not likely. Check other fluoride sources...your water, vitamins with fluoride, etc.

    Adults can not get fluorisis very easily. Even if you downed a whole tube of toothpaste you wouldn't get it.
