Community Water Fluoridation and Urinary Fluoride Concentrations in a National Sample of Pregnant Women in Canada

TLDR
Community water fluoridation is a major source of fluoride exposure for pregnant women living in Canada andUrinary dilution correction with creatinine and SG were shown to be interchangeable for the authors' sample of pregnant women.

Fluoride exposure and pubertal development in children living in Mexico City

TLDR
Childhood fluoride exposure, at the levels observed in the study, was associated with later pubertal development among Mexican boys at age 10–17 years and no significant associations were found in girls.

A Benchmark Dose Analysis for Maternal Pregnancy Urine‐Fluoride and IQ in Children

TLDR
The joint data show a BMCL in terms of the adjusted U‐F concentrations in the pregnant women of approximately 0.2 mg/L, which can be used to guide decisions on preventing excess fluoride exposure in pregnant women.

Prenatal Fluoride Exposure and Cognitive Outcomes in Children at 4 and 6–12 Years of Age in Mexico

TLDR
Higher prenatal fluoride exposure, in the general range of exposures reported for other general population samples of pregnant women and nonpregnant adults, was associated with lower scores on tests of cognitive function in the offspring at age 4 and 6–12 y.

Fluoride Metabolism in Pregnant Women: A Narrative Review of the Literature

TLDR
The changes of pregnancy that have the potential to impact fluoride’s absorption, distribution and excretion are summarized, and the limited body of evidence on the topic is highlighted.

Dietary Influences on Urinary Fluoride over the Course of Pregnancy and at One-Year Postpartum.

TLDR
Different dietary influences on UF in the pregnant state need consideration when using UF as a biomarker of fluoride exposure, according to a validated Food Frequency Questionnaire.

Appendix G POOLED BMD ANALYSIS OF THE ELEMENT AND MIREC DATASETS

TLDR
The results can be used to guide decisions on preventing excess fluoride exposure in vulnerable populations and explore the concentration-effect function for maternal urinary fluoride with children’s IQ, including possible sex-dependence.

Fluoride exposure and intelligence in school-age children: evidence from different windows of exposure susceptibility

TLDR
Children with prenatal fluoride exposure had lower IQ scores than children who were not prenatally exposed; therefore the reduction of IQ scores at higher levels of fluoride exposure in childhood does not become that evident.

Association between fluoride exposure and cardiometabolic risk in peripubertal Mexican children.

URINARY FLUORIDE LEVELS FOR ASSESSMENT OF FLUORIDE EXPOSURE OF PREGNANT WOMEN IN POZNAN , POLAND

TLDR
The results indicate that prenatal systemic administration of fluorides, still recommended by some authors, should not be implemented in this population of pregnant women living in Poznan, Poland.

Variations in concentration of fluoride in blood plasma of pregnant women and their possible consequences for amelogenesis in a fetus.

Prenatal Fluoride Exposure: Measurement of Plasma Levels and Enamel Uptake in the Guinea Pig

TLDR
Results showed an increase in mean fluoride concentration for maternal plasma from the de-ionized to the 20-ppm group and mean fetal enamel concentrations increased in a fashion similar to that of the maternal plasma levels and exhibited significant differences among all groups.

Maternal-fetal transfer of fluoride in pregnant women.

TLDR
It is indicated that fluoride supplementation during the final trimester of pregnancy will significantly elevate cord plasma fluoride concentrations and that maternal and fetal plasma inorganic fluoride values at term will be higher than normal.

Placental transfer of fluoride in pregnant women consuming optimum fluoride in drinking water.

TLDR
It was deduced that the placenta allows passive diffusion of fluoride from mother to foetus and does not act as a barrier in the placental transfer of fluoride.

Prenatal Lead Exposure and Weight of 0- to 5-Year-Old Children in Mexico City

TLDR
Maternal bone lead was associated with lower weight over time among female but not male children up to 5 years of age, and was limited to females, which needs to be confirmed in other studies.

Fluoride concentration in amniotic fluid and fetal cord and maternal plasma.

Effect of Maternal Exposure of Fluoride on Biometals and Oxidative Stress Parameters in Developing CNS of Rat

TLDR
The results confirm that the fluoride provoked oxidative stress and biometal deformations are synergistic that successively governs the neuronal damage and developing CNS no longer prevents exacerbations of fluoride.

Fetal Lead Exposure at Each Stage of Pregnancy as a Predictor of Infant Mental Development

TLDR
Fetal lead exposure has an adverse effect on neurodevelopment, with an effect that may be most pronounced during the first trimester and best captured by measuring lead in either maternal plasma or whole blood.

The relationship between lead in plasma and whole blood in women.

TLDR
This study demonstrates that plasma Pb measurements may be applied to general clinical settings, provided that established trace metal clean techniques are adopted and the relative partitioning of whole-blood Pb in plasma naturally varies by a factor of about 2-4-fold among subjects at a given blood Pb level.
