Flouride, New RDA* 3.5 mg
Fluoride is a trace element found widely in the environment. It's in all animals and plants and in water. Very small amounts are also in the air we breathe.
Fluoride is thought to be essential, though this has been difficult to demonstrate experimentally. Although fluoride supplements are only available as licensed medicines, fluoride was included in the EVM programme as it has been used to fortify particular foodstuffs on a local basis in order to improve dental health.
