An analysis was made of the data on the levels of thyroid hormones (serum T3, rT3, T4 and TSH), water iodine and fluoride determined in our laboratories since 1980. The results showed that the serum rT3 levels in schoolchildren aged 7-14 varied greatly in environments at different fluoride levels and increased with the elevated water fluoride concentration, showing a significant correlation (R=0.85, P<0.05). The rate of abnormality also increased, but the significance is still unclear. With the increase of water iodine concentration, the serum rT3 level increased, but it was not statistically significant (r=0.79, P>0.05).
