Water is the major source of fluoride (F) in fluorosis endemic areas although food materials also contribute considerable amount to total intake. Plants take up F from irrigating waters and this uptake is influenced by some inorganic constituents in water and soil. In the present study five commonly consumed vegetables (amaranth ( Amaranthus gangeticus) , spinach (Coriandrum sativum), cabbage, tomato and lady's finger) were grown applying irrigation water containing 10 ppm F. In addition… CONTINUE READING
