Reuters Health Information (2005-01-31): Too much fluoride in iced tea sickens woman:

"NEW YORK (Reuters Health) - A woman developed painful, weak bones after drinking gallons of instant iced tea every day for years, which filled her body with harmful levels of fluoride, according to a new report."

"So Whyte asked himself, could other people be getting harmful amounts of fluoride from instant tea? 'My rationale, in part, for reporting (this woman's case) is yes, I think that there are,' he said."
