Immune system suppression may worsen poor immunity already present.
Elderly ( 65 and older )
Reduced kidney function leads to increased accumulation of fluoride.
Increased risk of hip fracture (proximal femur) (21%-86%). majority of published studies show relationship (7 out of 10). Precautionary principle applies.
Kidney Disease including those on hemodialysis.
