Blood Type and Flouride


STUDY:
Genetic markers of occupational susceptibility to fluorosis

JOURNAL:
Med Tr Prom Ekol 2001;(7):30-3

AUTHORS:
Danilov IP, Protasov VV, Lotosh EA, Luzina FA.

ABSTRACT:
To determine markers showing propensity to occupational fluorosis, the authors studied prevalence of ABO, Rh, MN, ABH and Lewis phenotypes, systemic rhesus haplotypes in 229 workers engaged into aluminum production. Propensity to occupational fluorosis was marked by P (+), O (ABO) phenotypes. P (-) phenotype appeared to be a marker of resistance to fluorides exposure. The results obtained could be useful to forecast probability of fluorosis and to better this disease prevention.



COMMENTARY:
Flourosis (excessive fluoride intake) can occur when the amount of flouride in drinking water exceeds drinking water 8 ppm (parts per million). According to its own proponents, fluoridation is responsible for about 40% of all fluorosis. True dental fluorosis rates and its corresponding severity is probably under-estimated in the population. This study implies that blood group O individuals may well want to be extra wary about using flouride based products.









The Ask Dr. D'Adamo internet advice column ran from 1996 to 2009, at which time Dr. D'Adamo's teaching and programming responsibilities no longer allowed him to devote time and resources to directly answering visitor questions. However we've recently reorganized this treasure-trove of material and made it again available to his readership. He occasionally posts new entries. These are marked with a NEW tag.
