Question: Should I worry about getting too much fluoride from drinking tea?
Answer: Green tea, as well as black tea, contains a small amount of fluoride. Excess fluoride can cause teeth and bones to become brittle (a condition called "fluorosis"). This is unlikely to occur with consumption of just a few cups of tea daily, but has occurred in people habitually consuming very large amounts of tea.
