Fluoride (F) toxicosis in the forms of dental, skeletal and non-skeletal fluorosis were investigated in 996 tribal individuals (503 males and 493 females) above 10 years of age living in nine F endemic villages of Dungarpur district of Rajasthan, India. Drinking water sources of these villages contained F in the range of 1.5–4.4 ppm.
