All intoxicants are banned for Sikhs because they take you away from the path of Akal Purkh and may have disastrous consequences for the family and self. If you indulge in any of these things please stop them completely. Even if you have addiction of taking tea, coffee, cold drinks, etc. then you should reduce and stop them completely. These things are mild addictions and could lead to acidity in the stomach. Fluoride content of dry tea leaves range from 3 mg/Kg to 300 mg/Kg and two to three cups of tea can contain an estimated 1 mg of fluoride according to WHO. Excess of fluoride in the mouth and body can cause dental or skeletal fluorosis or endemic fluorosis.
