“…it is more common in places where people do not get proper nutrition…”

“…fluoride can result in denser bones…these bones are often more brittle or fragile than normal bone and there is an increased risk of older men and women breaking a bone.  Some studies have also found a higher risk of bone fractures in older men and women at fluoride levels typically found in fluoridated water….”
