Fluorosis is one of the severe public health problems in India, as almost two-third states are fluoride endemic. In India, approximately 25 million people are presently affected by fluorosis and 66 million are at risk of developing fluorosis, including children of age 14 years. India is situated in the geographical fluoride belt and in areas where fluoride content is high in rocks or soil, leaching of fluoride occurs, causing excess fluoride level in groundwater. However, the level of fluoride in water also depends on the natural solubility, presence of other minerals, the acidity of the soil and amount of water present, which explains high fluoride content in the groundwater. Bihar is one of the fluoride endemic states in India and 11 districts, including Bhagalpur district have reportedly high level of fluoride in the groundwater.
