Are you a tea drinker? If so, you may be interested to know that a recent study has shown certain brands of tea to contain more fluoride than others. This can take the fluoride intake of tea lovers well over the recommend limit in cases of people who drink four or more cups of tea per day.
The recommended amount of fluoride is good for your teeth, and this is the reason it is added to a number of consumer products.
However, when the recommended level of fluoride is exceeded, this can actually cause damage to your teeth, and it is therefore advisable to check the level of fluoride that has been added to products such as tea in order to protect your dental health.
