Dietary Exposure to Fluoride in Adults and Children in Ireland
This report presents the findings of a total diet study (TDS) on fluoride intake carried out in Ireland during 2014–2016 by the Food Safety Authority of Ireland (FSAI). The objective was to evaluate possible risk, if any, to the health of children aged 1–12 years and adults resident in Ireland arising from exposure to fluoride from foods and beverages, including fluoridated water.
Based on the results of this study, the FSAI Scientific Committee concluded that there is currently no scientific basis for concerns about the safety of children and adults in Ireland from exposure to fluoride from foods and beverages.
