Telangana state in India solves Fluorsis problem.
More than 60 million people in India are at risk from fluorosis. 20 states in India report incidences of fluorosis. Fluoride greater than 1 mg/l is harmful for drinking. Malnutrition makes fluorosis worse. A generation of children is at risk of being crippled. Calcium deficiency aggravates fluorosis. Fluorosis also worsens Osteoporosis, Anaemia and other nutrition related diseases.Most symptoms of fluorosis are not reversible. Safe water and good nutrition prevent fluorosis.
Now the good news- three states, Telangana, Gujarat and Uttarakhand, had been declared a fluorosis-free state with zero affected areas.
