The removal of fluoride from drinking water to prevent teeth damage. Fluoride is one of the most common contaminants found in water that is responsible for reducing the safety and quality of the water. Safe drinking water is vital to every human being and is considered essential to the preservation of life on the earth. Issues regarding fluoride have been found in the groundwater in many regions around the world. Defluoridation of water has been aided by many materials such as ion exchange resins, lime, alumina, activated carbon, magnesia, and aluminum salts. Simple and cost-effective defluoridation processes have been developed by researchers through the use of traditional and non-traditional tools, including some findings on the pros and cons of these defluoridation methods.
