, Ralph Duckworth,


This dataset is a supplementary material of the Chapter 3 Study I of the thesis titled ‘Predictor of Fluorosis: Total Fluoride Intake or Subsequent Fluoride Absorption?’. Tables encompass data gathered through the Iowa Fluoride Study (IFS), specifically 3-day food diaries. Data from the 3-day food diaries was transcribed for 91 participants with/without dental fluorosis on permanent teeth at 6 weeks, 3, 6, 12, 24, and 36 months of age. This was then joint with fluoride concentrations found for each individual product using both the UK and the US fluoride databases (Table 1 - Table 24). For each individual product, the frequency of intake and overall fluoride intake were calculated and used to identify those food products with the highest frequency of consumption/highest fluoride intake (Table 25 - Table 42). Necessary ethical approvals were obtained for this study. No personally identifiable information is included in the dataset.
