INTRODUCTION TO THE XI NATIONAL FLUORINE SYMPOSIUM
IN SZCZECIN, POLAND

President of the International Society for Fluoride Research
Department of Hygiene and Public Health, Osaka Medical College, Takatsuki, Osaka, Japan

On behalf of the members of the Board of the International Society for Fluoride Research, I would like to sincerely express my cordial gratitude to Professor Zygmunt Machoy and his colleagues for planning and preparing for the XI National Fluorine Symposium to be held in Szczecin in October 2004. It is my great honor and pleasure to write an introduction offering congratulations on the opening of the Symposium. Many scientists will be able to have opportunity, during the Symposium, to exchange scientific thought and experience with their colleagues and to review recent developments in fluoride research. Progress in this area of science has been achieved through contributions from many scientific disciplines from chemistry, biochemistry and physiology to public health and epidemiology. There is no doubt that increased knowledge of the occurrence, availability and biological effects of fluoride can help improve human health and provide a clear understanding of its role in biochemistry, human physiology and more broadly in the environment as a whole. I hope that this Symposium will be fruitful for all Polish participants, and look forward to the valuable presentations and active discussion on the problems associated with fluoride.
