Boron for Fluoride Chelation and BI3

Post  albe on Fri Sep 24, 2010 1:18 am

I was thinking earlier about the use of boron for fluoride chelation. While boron will bond with fluoride, forming a compound that will cause less damage and be excreted from our bodies, won't it also do the same with iodide and form BI3?

Are people sure that a net positive will be done with the use of this mineral, and that the boron has a stronger affinity to bond to fluoride rather than iodide?

For that matter, can anybody find any references to studies or papers discussing boron for fluoride chelation? BF3 is toxic, from what I've read, and it's supposedly likely to undergo reactions forming other boron compounds (meaning fluoride might be released back into the body).

I found this:
Boron as antidote to fluoride: effect on bones and claws in subacute intoxication of rabbits

Elsair J, Merad R, Denine R, Azzouz M, Khelfat K, Hamrour M, Alamir B, Benali S, Reggabi M

Laboratories of Physiology, Toxicology and Galenic Pharmacy, Medical Institute, Algiers, Algeria

Summary: Rabbits were "subacutely" intoxicated by administration of 30 mg/kg/day of fluoride for 3 months followed by 15 mg/kg/day for a subsequent 3 months (F). Boron was given alone (B) as preventive and simultaneously with fluoride prophylactically (F + Bp), as well as therapeutically namely midway during the experimental period (F + Bpc) while fluoride was being administered and after it was discontinued (Bc compared with fluoirde interuption F*), at a constant F/B ratio. All groups were compared to normal controls.

Boron administered during fluoride intoxication or after its interruption, reduces fluoremia and increases urinary fluoride excretion. Skeletal fluoride levels are directly relatd to those of claws. They bear no relationship to fluoride in hair. The high fluoride content in bone in lot F decreases with addition of boron. It is still high in lot F* but returns to normal in loc Bc. Calcium content of bones remains normal in all lots. Posterior pad radiography shows a cortical thickness in lot F which is less pronounced in lots F + Bpc and F*, and returns to normal in lot Bc."



Granted it's not on humans, but it's enough for me.
The next question is what dosage of boron should be used, and should iodine uptake be increased as well?

The atomic weight of boron is 1/11 that of iodine. So if half of a standard 5mg dose of boron bonded to iodine, then 5mg*2.5*11/2 ~70mg of iodine would be removed from your body.

Can anybody expound further on this?
