Mae Toen is close to a fluoride mine that has contaminated the water of the village. Despite the mine's closure 40 years ago, the area has become a polluted artificial lake, where water overflows during the rainy season. "The problem we have is that in Mae Toen, the groundwater is used for eating and cooking, and this is contaminated by with fluoride," says Dr. Chatpat Kongpun, who works at the Ministry of Public Health Thailand.
