Abstract: The main objective of this research study was to find out the toxic effect of fluoride in female rat during diet intake. When the doses of sodium intake were increased in rat it showed a great toxic effect on the reproductive as well as physical functions of the rat. Higher intake of sodium leads to significant increase in size of the ovary, uterus, kidney etc. Rats which had ingested NaF showed increases in the weights of the ovaries and also the relative weights of the uterus and kidney. The results indicate that exposure of female rats to NaF in drinking water has adverse fetotoxic effects.
