Hydrofluorosis caused by fluoride-rich water was predominantly restricted in Rajasthan, India before the commencement of guinea-worm ( Dracunculus medinensis ) eradication programme in 1986. During implication of the programme, numerous bore- and tube-wells fitted with hand pumps were dug in villages even in the remote areas of the state, simultaneously closing down the traditional step/open-wells which were used as drinking water sources. Groundwater from tube- and bore-wells drawn from deeper… Expand
