Fluoride's Effect on the Gastrointestinal Tract

Fluoride's Effect on the Gastrointestinal TractGastrointestinal symptoms like nausea, abdominal pain and vomiting are the most common early symptoms of acute fluoride poisoning. For people who are sensitive to fluoride, ingesting 1 mg tablets of fluoride or drinking 1 parts per million of fluoridated water can cause these gastrointestinal symptoms.
