ABSTRACT
The fluoride (F) concentration in 14 brands of bottled drinking water that were proffered or sold during the Arba'een holy trek in Iraq, from Najaf to Karbala, were analysed and compared with the F levels on the labels. The mean F level of the bottled drinking water was 0.28 mg/L with a range of 0.13 to 0.50 mg/L. Significant differences were present between the measured F concentrations and the F values on the labels (p<0.001).
