SummaryFluoride has fallen into discredit due to the absence of an anti-fracture effect. However, in this meta-analysis, a fracture reducing potential was seen at low fluoride doses [≤20 mg fluoride equivalents (152 mg monofluorophosphate/44 mg sodium fluoride)]: OR = 0.3, 95% CI: 0.1–0.9 for vertebral and OR = 0.5, 95% CI: 0.3–0.8 for non-vertebral fractures.IntroductionFluoride is incorporated into bone mineral and has an anabolic effect. However, the biomechanical competence of the newly… Expand
