Bromism is the syndrome which results from the long-term consumption of bromine, usually through bromide-based sedatives such as potassium bromide and lithium bromide. Bromism was once a very common disorder, being responsible for 5 to 10% of psychiatric hospital admissions, but is now uncommon since bromide was withdrawn from clinical use in many countries and was severely restricted in others.
Dental fluorosis is a common disorder, characterized by hypomineralization of tooth enamel caused by ingestion of excessive fluoride during enamel formation. It appears as a range of visual changes in enamel causing degrees of intrinsic tooth discoloration, and, in some cases, physical damage to the teeth. The severity of the condition is dependent on the dose, duration, and age of the individual during the exposure. The "very mild" and most common form of fluorosis, is characterized by small, opaque, "paper white” areas scattered irregularly over the tooth, covering less than 25% of the t ...
Salt toxicosis is the overconsumption of salt. The symptoms may include a swollen tongue, nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, abdominal cramps, and thirst. Neurological effects may include thirst, irritability, weakness, headache, and convulsions. Cerebral edema may also occur, and muscle tremors can also be present. Salt toxicosis also affects many breeds of pets or domesticated animals, such as cats, dogs, horses, cows, and birds. Symptoms for pets may include vomiting, diarrhea, inappetence, lethargy, walking drunk, abnormal fluid accumulation within the body, excessive thirst or urination, pot ...
