The effects of fluoride aerosol inhalation on mice were studied using an inhalation chamber. Five-week-old male ICR mice were exposed to airborne fluoride (13.3 mgF/m3) 4 hr per day for 10, 20 or 30 days. Significant differences in relative lung weight were observed between the exposed groups and the control. No significant changes were found in relative kidney weight and body weight of the exposed mice. Bone fluoride retention and urinary fluoride excretion increased with exposure time.
