In summary, fluoride is safe and effective within the recommended dose of 0.7-1.5 mg/L. Fluoride significantly reduces the risk of dental caries and there is no scientific proof that fluoride causes any type of cancer or is related to cancer.

In very excessive doses 10mg/L and 10 years of repetitive exposure at this dose, fluoride can cause skeletal fluorosis, making the bones more brittle.
