A recent review identifies the molecular mechanisms by which fluoride inhibits sodium iodide symporter expression and functionality, which in turn contributes to impaired iodide absorption, diminished iodide-concentrating ability, and iodine deficiency disorders. Overall, studies suggest that fluoride exposure directly affects the bio-availability of iodine in humans. This is particularly important for New Zealanders, as NZ…Read details
