Such disturbances may be due to hypoxia in high altitude areas. This ultimately leads to a decrease in urinary pH, reducing fluoride renal excretion and, therefore, increasing fluoride concentrations in the body. Physical Activity In prolonged physical activity, there is a reduction in the pH gradient across cell membranes, 30 especially skeletal muscle cells, which promotes the diffusion of fluoride (as HF) from the extracellular to the intracellular fluid. In addition, renal vasoconstriction can occur due to increased secretion of catecholamines and muscular blood flow during exercise.

Additionally, fluoride levels in urine and osteocalcin levels in serum were found to be significantly lower in controls from non-endemic villages compared to cases. However, the differences in fluoride and osteocalcin levels were not observed when cases were compared to a control population from endemic fluorosis villages. This study provided the first evidence of an association between polymorphisms in the COL1A2 gene with dental fluorosis in high-fluoride-exposed populations [85]. Conclusion In view of the diverse effects that fluoride can produce in biological systems, it is not surprising that it has been the subject of thousands of scientific reports.
