Stimolato da una cara amica, riporto di seguito un po’ di Letteratura Scientifica sull’effetto ed efficacia del fluoro.

Tradotto per i non addetti ai lavori…vuol dire che di seguito trovate le “coordinate” per recuperare con PUBMED gli articoli scritti per documentare effetti ed effetti collaterali del fluoro.
