TEA LOVERS, CHEW ON THIS

Drink tea? You may be getting too much fluoride, particularly if you use a fluoridated toothpaste and your water supply contains fluoride. A British study in the journal Food Research International found 6 milligrams of fluoride per liter in many black and green teas (3 to 4 milligrams is the max per day). Extra fluoride can accumulate in the bones causing skeletal fluorosis, a debilitating bone disease that shutter causes joint pain and stiffness.
