Medani Abdel Monim M H, Elnour Abdelsalam A, Saeed Amal M - "Excessive iodine intake, water chemicals and endemic goitre in a Sudanese coastal area" Public Health Nutrition 16(9):1586–1592 (2013) doi:10.1017/S1368980012004685
TSH levels in 6-12 year-old schoolchildren were significantly correlated with F– concentration in water (r=0-506, P=0-004). Fluoride levels are not given in this study, but have been reported elsewhere to be well below 1.0 ppm, the mean being 0.30 ppm.
